I havent entered any new thing in my journal in the recent past. Looking at my encounters on YouTube and also in Twitch, I realize that the turn of events has been interesting. Anyone who has gone through the original entry knows the tough times I have had. The budget for the equipment was not that small. I can never get used to talking to myself on Camera though. For some time, I was wondering whether to keep it going or stop. There was also the part about my investment not giving me any returns. MTG is one of the expensive games I have come across. For a single 5-match league, I had to cough up eight dollars every day. I was paying much more than that. Each month I would have to pay $35 for the MTG rental service I chose because I didnt have the digital cards. This was draining financially. For some time, I had no plan of action even when I was convinced the track I was on was great. This is at a time when I did not have anyone else in my team but me. When I started this website, new ideas started dawning on me. I was focusing on the bigger picture.
I wanted the site to be all about nerd culture. A stream would be awesome but I figured few people will be interested in watching just a single game. This is how the idea to branch out to various games was born. However, this could not be done without securing a new computer. Because I was familiar with niche websites, content writing was not a new thing for me. However, I was crazy for more. I was focused on creating a bang like Gizmodo. However, this could not be achieved with written content alone but also video content. To reach a large audience, I had to promote my content on social channels. It was too much work for just a single person but everything I had done before was leading to that point. This is why I didnt stop at that. After I built the site, I strategized on the content. The next thing was to set up a Twitter account and these are elements that took up my focus.
I shared my vision with one of my buddies called Jon. I wanted to have a podcast for the website. Jon was ready to be the co-host. This is the first person to help me with content creation. YouTube was my first pick though instead of going straight away to a podcast even if those were the plans for the future and you can get more info here.
