HerdCon 2020 has been cancelled, in large part because of the Coronavirus situation.
Now, DO NOT lash out at the organizers. Please. They made the best decision they could with the pressure they had and the information available to them. I trust their judgement. And I trust them when they come back next year. They have plans to run HerdCon 2021 and I hope to make it.
Before I continue, please: take care of yourselves. Especially if you have autoimmune issues.
Ok, now let’s get into it:
Well now, my Friday and Saturday are wide open. So I’m taking Friday to catch up on KickStarter rewards.
Today I trim minicomics for Genghis Con, while also talking about everything from freelancing (and what my freelance streams of income are); to goals I have for Fantasyville Productions.
The next stream will be Wednesday, December 4 at 1 pm EST. I’ll try to keep the stream short next time – I realize now that if I stream for more than an hour and a half, the first chunk of the stream gets cut off. That means that people who later watch the video as just a video will miss the first chunk.
You may notice that the livestream date for next week is on a Wednesday – that’s because I’m out of town the following weekend to visit friends (and go apartment touring) in the Toledo area.
That’s all for now. See you next week!
OR, if you’re in the Cleveland, OH area, I’ll see you TOMORROW for Genghis Con.
If you missed my first ever livestream on YouTube, no worries! There were a few technical issues when I first got it streaming, but I’ve learned for next time.
However, here’s the stream again for your viewing pleasure as just a video.
The next livestream will air on YouTube next Saturday, November 30 at 1 pm EST. Use this time zone converter to figure out what time that is for you.
(I’ve also learned, after watching the stream back over, that I need to actually share what I’m doing on the screen. So please excuse me for showing mostly my face the entire time. Next stream it will go better.)
You read right – there will be a LiveStream this Saturday!
I found an app called StreamYard that should work. I would use Twitch, but I don’t have the camera set-up or microphones for that sort of thing.
(Also Twitch is linked with Twitter and I refuse to return to that hellscape of a platform. I have better things to do with my life.)
So I’m using StreamYard to livestream on both YouTube AND Facebook at the same time. (Because it can do that, apparently.) If for some reason I didn’t set it up right, the stream should, for sure, air on YouTube at least.
The stream will air on YouTube (and Facebook, if I did it right), THIS SATURDAY, Nov. 23 at 1 pm EST.
I’ll be sharing my screen as I work, while also answering any questions you may have for me.
Be sure to add this to your calendar, and hit the notification bell on YouTube.
