Doing a little bit every day is the most effective way to do anything.

In this lecture I discuss playing games on a consistent basis in order to build a following. If you stream once every couple of weeks with no real plan to build a following nothing is going to come of it. Just remember your playing games because it's fun, but you also can build something bigger too.
Giving back to your streamers will ensure they come back.
