When becoming a streamer, we all have those little goals we want to achieve, it can be 100 follows, 200 follows that first 1000 follows and when we reach them we set a new goal for ourselves and work our way towards that. Goals keep up going I feel even when things get tough.
Goals for me in terms of streaming are no different. When I first started streaming, I did it for fun and as a hobby directly from my Xbox. I would stream randomly at different times and quickly rose to 200 follows within a few months. I soon realized that I enjoyed streaming and wanted to do it more seriously. I began upgrading my stream firstly purchasing a PC that I would be able to stream from which my boyfriend SmokeyDevil helped me get, from there I bought a new microphone, a new webcam and eventually got myself a green screen to have the set up I have now. It took a good few months for me to get the set up I have now and to get my stream to where it is now where I was happy with it. Once I was happy with my set up I began creating goals for myself such as 500 followers and 1000 followers. By July 2018 I was at 1000 followers and couldn’t believe I had got that far. From there my health took a turn for the worst and as much as I tried to stream regularly I had trouble keeping a solid schedule. Going from 1000 followers to 1,400 followers took a lot of time as I saw a slow increase in followers with me not having a solid schedule due to health issues.
By early May 2019 my doctor started treating me for Fibromyalgia and I have so far felt so much more better than I had in a long time. From May 13th 2019 (My birthday) until now (1st June 2019) I have managed to keep a somewhat steady schedule and I can’t believe how much that has helped me in terms of streaming. I am now very close to 1,600 followers and have created a goal for myself of 2000 followers. I do not have a set date to reach that goal, just that I would love to reach 2000 followers. Another goal I have for myself is Mixer Partnership which I would love to achieve in 2019 if possible but I know that can take some time and I may not get that this year.
Is Partnership the end goal for me? No, it is not. Partnership is a goal to start a new chapter in streaming for me. Partnership opens up a whole lot more for a streamer when they get there and the goals that you can make when you receive partnership are never ending. I already find myself sitting and brain storming ideas I have for when I do get partnership and things like emotes I already have a lot of ideas written down.
Gaining Partnership on Mixer would be an absolute dream for me. I never thought I would enjoy streaming until I tried it and I have met so many awesome people throughout the whole 1 and a half years I have been streaming on Mixer, people I would never had of met if I had not been a part of Mixer.
Hopefully those goals I have can be reached and reaching them in 2019 would be absolutely amazing!
