Long story short: there's been...a lot to discuss around monetization on Twitch. With a recent "miscommunication" on sponsorship guidelines for creators (which was apparently meant for 3rd party advertisers looking to Twitch for ad space) and the whiplash coming from their correction coming just a few hours after the initial announcement, it's one too many straws on the camel's back for streamers who use Twitch as means for a career.
What I’ve Learned from 6 Years of Twitch Streaming

It feels good to get all of this out there. It feels good to truly manifest the growth I want to see in my life. I hope to see you cheering me on, as I continue to work for it.

Halloween Panic and Preparedness: A Memoir
Ah yes, Halloween. It’s almost upon us. I always look forward to this holiday, but it always seems to sneak up on me, leaving me panicking at the last minute trying to get things ready for the holiday. I’d say I’m like…70% prepared, this time around, but let me tell you, there are still some …
