any advice?

I'm fairly new to the concept of streaming. I've done some on twitch, and found the barrier of entry a little steep. I'm glad I found this site and the community looks pretty awesome. I already have more followers in two streams then I did in a week on twitch. to get to the point, any tips on how to avoid a lot of dead air? I usually don't talk too much when I'm gaming unless I have a party chat going. any advice would help and be greatly appreciated, hope to get some good sessions going with you guys!

I try to keep the commentary going, even if nobody's watching the stream at that time. It keeps me going and hopefully grabs peoples attention as I'm not always looking at the chat or viewer count while I'm playing. Honestly, it felt weird doing it at first, but you get comfortable with it.

For the chat attendance, I don't have very many gamer friends that are close by, so I rely mostly on the internet to get people to come in. Between the site's email notifications, app push notifications, Facebook, and Twitter, there is usually at least one or two people that will pop in for a while to watch and chat.

i havent had a chat as of yet, hopefully that will change. I just need to get more comfortable with talking to myself. I usually do, but no one can hear me. Thanks for the advice, and i noticed that no one is doing late night broadcasting. ill be your weekend man, since i work nights, thats my time. I am the night, or soemthing like that.

Yeah, I felt bad missing your stream last weekend. We had a sick kiddo and started picking up a cold or something so we weren't online much. Hope to catch you this weekend, though!
