First let me say...........WATCH OUT!!!!! You almost stepped in owl poop! anyyyyyways let me say hello one hello all! As always I'm the original Ponketeer, and I'm here to ask for some advice. I love watching our Dark Lord play. So much so that it has inspired me to do my own lets plays. Now granted my lets plays are not going to be nearly as amazing, but that doesn't mean that they cant get there. Now the advice I'm looking for is this. What am I doing wrong and what am I doing right? To be honest I'm not sure if I'm asking this question in the right place or if I should be asking it at all. I ask because I was getting 60 to 70 views on some of my Fallout 1 lets plays but when I switched to New Vegas I started getting only 1 to 5 views a video (pretty sure 1 of those is when it loads from me uploading it). I don't you guys to feel like I'm trying to get views cause I am not terribly concerned with that. I could however use some constructive feedback. I'm not sure what to improve if no one likes or comments or even views. No matter what though I'm going to keep going. I love what I'm doing. Its fun to think that someone out there may get some enjoyment from me having fun playing a game. Its also very good social therapy for me. I have severe social anxiety so being able to do this is helping. Well in any case I will see you all out in the verse Ponk P.S. Can I get a mop or something? This poop on the floor is starting to smell a little
Hey guys! Just wanted to drop a line about our stream and the group behind it I co-founded in 2009 called Forced Fable. A little background... When we first started the group it was just two people. Myself, and a long time friend of mine, Tyler. At the time we were both still in the Marine Corps, and had been through everything together. Bootcamp, MOS school, two duty stations, three deployments. If he is anything, he is my brother. Anyway, we started the group on Tumblr, and bought a domain name, for the purpose of writing. The goal was to write a book in The Elder Scrolls universe (this was just before that one book... about the floating island that created zombies and the people on the island ate essences). We also started doing simple excerpts from ideas we brainstormed. After a while, we realized we could try to expand a bit into the YouTube side. This is where it breaks off a bit. Tyler and I ended up going to different duty stations (he went to Okinawa, I went to North Carolina). He also had a kid with his wife, and had a lot on his plate. I decided to take up the majority of the work and did what I could, without truly knowing what I was doing. Fast forward a few years. Now we have six people in the group (including Tyler and I) with another prospect being looked at. We do mainly live streams now. This sucks, because we had some good stuff posted on our YouTube channel. We haven't had any content added to the channel in a long time. The website gets the occasional article when our writer, Ben, is able to get something to me. From the beginning I've been a huge advocate of this: Family and full-time jobs come first. What we've been able to make, people have enjoyed. It isn't constant, because the majority of us simply can't provide the time needed for a decent flow of content. This is a "hobby-job," as my wife calls it, and it can't take center stage. For most of my group, they have jobs and lives. I am finishing college and stay at home while my son goes to full-time day care. I have some time, when I'm not worrying or doing other things, to add content. But I don't have the time or ability to add the content to all the different platforms we put ourselves on. Initially, we did. We were good. Then life caught up with the majority of my guys, and now we provide what we can, when we can. Anyway, sorry for the long post. I'm not expecting anything, just wanted to put our group out there and see if the stuff we made was enjoyable. We stream when we can, at the moment it's mainly Chris and Luke (GameOder and Gaedikus if you ever drop by) with my streams starting back up soon. All of our information can be found in my signature block below. Thanks for reading, if you did!
