Turn off the viewer counter and forget its there! Nothing will kill you fun then always looking at it. Also don't stop talking even if there is no one watching.
13. Finally, what other content creators do you enjoy watching and recommend people check out?
It would be rude not to say JoeR247 he does a lot for other streamers and is a great guy and there is so many other awesome people out there to watch.
It is hard to single anyone out so i would say even if you don't stream and just like finding new people to watch, join a community and get involved with the people in them so I guess i would recommend anyone under the #WeAreHive community
JoeR247 is bad at Forza and I'm better then him so come check me out :P Find him on twitch at www.twitch.tv/barnesii
