1. What is the story behind your channel name?
I started it as wygamer as I am a proud Yorkshire man, but my friend decided it sucked and rebranded for me and since my first name is Dan then...
2. What is your video game history/background and all time favourite game?
Been playing games since I was five, before colour screens were a thing and Windows as you know it today was but a pipe dream! All time favourite game is actually a series - Halo.
3. What/Who inspired you to start creating content on the internet?
I started by writing reviews and articles, inspired by the staff at Gamespot before they moved to Giantbomb. I wrote several pieces that made the front page of Gamespot back when they had a user created area there, the videos and streaming spiraled out of that love of writing about games
4. When did you start creating content on the internet?
5. What is your content creation setup. Specs and accessories?

6. How did you find the first few weeks/months of content creation? (any funny stories/mistakes/highlights?)
Difficult, I was so quiet on stream! But I had my best friend who was my regular viewer so I had someone to talk to most days. Biggest mistakes I was making was no schedule and playing the biggest game in the world - Fortnite
7. How did you grow your channel? How did you network?
I tried Discord but found I didn't have the time to get out of it what I needed, I still dabble but mainly I grow with Twitter as best I can
8. What has been your proudest moment so far?
My first solo Win in Fortnite, because it took almost a year and several thousand games...
9. How did you find the technical side of content creation? Setting up your channel, etc?
I work in IT so that was actually pretty easy to do so long as you pay attention and are ready to ask for help if you need it
10. What do you enjoy most about your content creation hobby/career?
Chatting to people who drop by my stream, getting to know them.
11. What don't you enjoy so much about your content creation hobby/career?
The times when it feels like I am getting absolutely no where, which feeds into feeling like I have no right to be streaming
12. What are you short term and long term goals for your channel/s?
Short term is to improve the setup and get better kit.
Long term, its the same as everyone: Get to partner level
13. What advice would you give anyone looking to get into content creation?
It takes time, way longer than you think. Have that in your mind at all times and just try to do the best you can!
