    This came up during tonight's livestream for the BladeForums.com 20th Anniversary Year of Giveaways so I figured I'd bring it to y'all

    Would you guys watch a livestream where I talk about various topics in the knife industry and such? When would be best?

    EDIT: Right now I'm broadcasting from 5-6ish eastern on Sundays on Youtube. After the stream is done, it's available for later use. I'm not sure what it'd take for an insta or facebook live stream - youtube seems to work for me.

    Of course many of us would watch - perhaps on the weekend after supper time, say around 9pm or something, either that or in the afternoon around 3pm

    The only real issue is coordinating the east and west coast for a good time for both

    I would if I knew how. I'm pc illiterate.

    I'd be interested if the timing was right for the east coast.

    It would depend on the content; but, yes I could see myself watching a weekly broadcast.

    You could look into podcasting it - and have it perma-stickied in this forum
    I expect that would result in a high % of forum members watching it always.

    I dont post much and as such feel bad about entering a give-away. I mostly just learn from others, so yeah I'd watch.

    Yes I would and 9:00 pm easts coast should be a good time for the west coast being 3 hours behind or 12:01 pm so I can watch it at lunch in my truck with the heat on ;):thumbsup:

    This is a good idea. One of the problems I've had with many live stream things is it either doesn't work with my family schedule or it's too long for my short attention span. I listen to a lot of podcasts during my daily commute or when I'm working on mundane projects like painting rooms in the house.

    I think if you kept the live stream short, I would be more interested. 30 minutes max.

    I would for sure, it is great the way we can participate and comment on the side bar thing,
    I think it would get more interaction on a bit more personal level between the members here.

    It would be worth trying it and seeing how it does.

    A few key talking points following a format of sorts. Maybe a guest via livestream or two.

    Some potential talking points:

    New models
    Steel news and innovations
    Highlight a maker
    Upcoming knife technologies
    Political topics pertaining to the industry
    Highlight a BF member
    Submit a pic of the week/month by BF member

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

    I could see myself watching. Sunday afternoons would be ideal. Usually not much going on.

    Live stream? Probably not. Recorded so I could watch at my convenience? Yes.

    I’m a huge knife nerd. I’d watch it if the content was interesting. No question.
