1. What is the story behind your channel name?
Basically made it on a whim, after my two best friends, who were streamers already said i should give it a go. So i thought, why the hell not?! What have i got to lose? And here I am 5 months later loving it still. ❤️
2. What is your video game history/background and all time favourite game?
I started gaming at the age of 4 on the very old & pc looking console Amiga 500. It wasn't long before I moved onto the Nes and SNES and then after that the N64. But these consoles were shared between my step brothers and sisters at the time. So I never really got much of a look in apart from Zelda. That was mine and my dad's time together. I'd run around fighting low level mobs he'd take on the bosses for me.
It was fun! At mum's though I did have my own console, the Sega mega drive. 😍 This beauty got me into the life of sonic, streets of rage, golden axe, ristar and many many more.
I then moved onto playstation, then Xbox then both!
I guess my all time favourite game though would have to be Final Fantasy VII. As much as Zelda meant alot to me, FF7 was the very first game i completed with 0 help from anyone. It will always be an achievement of mine, plus the fact I freaking loved the game 😍
3. What/Who inspired you to start creating content on the internet?
I guess my two best friends. They streamed and told me i had what it takes to make it as a streamer too. They knew i was always toying with the idea. But they gave me that push and confidence boots i needed to actually go for it. And I'm so glad they did!
4. When did you start creating content on the internet?
I started in may 2018. So not even been doing it for half a year yet! 😅
5. How did you find the first few weeks/months of content creation? (any funny stories/mistakes/highlights?)
I found myself super nervous I'd get butterflies everyone before i started. I had to actually shot a few shots of vodka before most streams. Luckily those nerves soon past after just sucking it up and being myself. As i would be off stream 😊
Oh I have done plenty's of mistakes haha. Read someone's name wrong, trip over words. Miss read something in chat.
But I guess my most funniest moment on stream was when I spent 30 odd minutes talking to myself because I forgot to turn my mic off mute
6. How did you grow your channel? How did you network?
I basically did what my two friends told me to do and i haven't stopped doing that. Make friends. 😊❤️
7. What has been your proudest moment so far?
I guess becoming affiliated in two weeks of starting streaming. 😅 I was absolutely shocked. I didn't even think I would reach that part in under two months. But I guess i must be good at what i do
8. How did you find the technical side of content creation? Setting up your channel, etc?
I actually found it pretty easy once my friends showed me how do it all.
There are alot of videos on it as well which is great! Mine isn't as compliance as a pc stream as i stream from console so really all i had to figure out was stream elements and working out updating my dashboard before streams. 😁
9. What do you enjoy most about your content creation hobby/career?
Meeting new people, making friends, having a laugh while streaming. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The streaming communities i have had the privilege of being a part of are utterly amazing. Plus the bonus if meeting them IRL!
Streaming helps me connect and socialize and game. It's like all the things I love to do rolled into one big awesome as hell parcel. Plus if i can make someone smile with what i do! Then I'm on cloud 9!
10. What don't you enjoy so much about your content creation hobby/career?
Wish I had the ability to stream from a pc. That's my dream. Having a proper gaming rig with all the cool tech. And being able to give more to my viewers. All they have is me & my gaming. I would love to be able to afford running comps, giving away stuff etc. Because I want to say thank you for the support and love. But i can't so my words will have to do for now. One day i will win that lottery
11. What are you short term and long term goals for your channel/s?
I guess short term to just keep on doing what I'm doing. Long term to buy a gaming rig, but i doubt that will happen in my life time lol
12. What advice would you give anyone looking to get into content creation?
Just do it. If you know someone who does it, get advice and just go for it. If you don't like it after a week you can just give it in. It's not for everyone but you won't know if it's for you unless you try. 😁❤️
13. Finally, what other content creators do you enjoy watching and recommend people check out?
I would be here forever typing names. So these are the people i have recently watched their streams. 😁❤️
