Introducing #StreamerLife

For the past several weeks during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mixer team has been inspired by the efforts of our great community to quarantine, stay safe at home, and bring joy through entertainment for everyone on Mixer. We understand that Mixer is a place where all of us can stay connected in this time, which is why we want to do more at a time when we are online more than ever.

Today, we are introducing #StreamerLife, a four-week program starting May 4th and running through May 29th that will ask the Mixer streaming community to share their passions, skills and talents with their communities. We’ve established themes for everybody to participate in each weekday in the hopes that viewers and streamers will find new and unique ways to spend time together.

See below for the daily themes we’ll cycle through each week:

Monday (Healthy Habits)

Start the week off right! From cardio exercise to crafting healthy foods, choose how to get your share of healthy habits with your Mixer community.

Tuesday (Class is in Session)

If you feel like you have some free time on your hands, why not learn something new? From Coding 101 to learning how to cook a tasty dish, learn from your favorite streamer’s unique skills and expand your potential.

Wednesday (Me, Myself, and I)

Help us celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month! Practice some yoga, meditation, or Zen and leave the stress of the outside world behind you!

Thursday (Talent Show)

Streamers, time to show off your talents. Whether you’re an artist, musician, dancer, or otherwise, share your passion with your community!

Friday (Water Cooler)

Want to talk about how Tiger King ended, or want to debate the 10 best video games of all time? Use this day to have open discussions with your community in a relaxed setting.

Are you a streamer and want to take part? It’s easy! Here’s how:

  1. Download and leverage the official #StreamerLife stream overlay from this very blog (posted at the bottom) to use during your stream!
  2. When you’re ready to go live, head to your Broadcast Dashboard and set the game you are playing to the brand new category “#StreamerLife”.
  3. Spread the word and use #StreamerLife across your social channels.

For all you viewers out there, we will feature a selection of #StreamerLife streams right on the Mixer homepage throughout the duration of the program, so find a channel that interests you and have fun. Don’t forget to also leverage our selection of custom #StreamerLife stickers to use in the chat as well!

Enjoy #StreamerLife and be good to each other!
