- How do you revolve your streaming schedule around your disabilities? You don’t HAVE to have a set schedule. Sometimes with your disabilities, you have to take days off at a moment’s notice.
- Listen to your body and find your limits.
- When having hard days always try and stay positive.
- Don’t compare yourself to other streamers.
- Find the right community to make you feel positive and comfortable.
- Create a community that you want to be a part of.
- Remember people will pick on you no matter what, disability or not.
- Having the community to back you when dealing with the trolls.
- Don’t let the trolls eat away at you. If you break once its only human.
- Try using a bot, if you are open to it, stating your disability to let newer viewers know.
- Sharing your disability can help a viewer who isn’t comfortable with their disability can connect and feel more open about it.
- Have plans ready if there is a medical emergency on stream.
- When taking personal time do whatever YOU want to decompress.
- Sometimes having the disability SUCKS, but you are never alone.
- Make a list of goals you want to get accomplished on stream.
- Your first idea/try may not work. Never give up, the first failure is the hardest, but it only gets easier.
- If it doesn’t work, maybe streaming isn’t for you? You can always be a manager, moderator, etc.
