Been a while since I posted something to my blog, so here is an update.
So word on the street is that I am a social climber and other content creators don't like me.
At the end of the day, as a YouTuber, I am subject to criticism. Valid or not. And I take no offense to it. I am literally just a guy with a day job who makes YouTube Videos and does Twitch Streams as a hobby. Sure...would be nice if I could do it full time. But here and now, its just a hobby.
And during the entire 12+ year run of my channel, I have never asked for a handout, begged for a shout-out or even asked a larger creator to collab with me. I built my channel from the ground up on my own. And yeah...some creators gave me shoutouts and helped me out of their own volition along the way. And I appreciate every single one of them for their help. 100%. But I have never asked for a handout. Ever.
As for comments on other creators not liking me, I am fine with that. I am 32 years old. I realize at my age that not everyone is going to like me. And thats fine. As a YouTuber, I am kind of a public figure. And as such, people will criticize me or have their own opinions of me. Valid or not. If people don't like me, fine. They don't have to like me. No skin off my back.
Like anyone else I have my own little close circle of friends and I have my family outside of that. And thats all that really matters. I am not going to beg for people to like me. You either like me or your don't. Its really that simple. At the end of the day when I log off the internet, none of this matters.
I think the only thing I would like to sincerely apologize for is the fact that over the course of the last few months, I have been an asshole to a lot of people that didn't deserve it. And I make no excuses for myself. Being a dick to people who don't deserve it is wrong. All I can say is that between my day job and personal life shit that I would rather keep private, I have been going through a lot. And as such, I have not exactly been myself. Again...this is not an excuse for my behavior. I take responsibility for my own actions. But I do apologize if you are reading this and you happen to be one of the people I was an asshole to.
To re-iterate a point I made earlier in this thread, I am just a guy who makes videos and streams in his free time as a hobby. I would love for this hobby to become more down the road, but if not, I am quite content with it being just a hobby. I have always tried to assist other creators with the limited means I have available to me and I have never asked for handouts or taken shortcuts to get to where I am now. But at the end of the day, people will have whatever opinions they want about me. Its just part of the gig.
As for me, I am just gonna keep doing what I enjoy. Making content in my free time. People can watch it and enjoy it or ignore it and be annoyed by it. Either way, I will keep doing it as long as I enjoy it. Anyway, this thread went on a LOT longer than I intended it to. I just wanted to share my thoughts on this.
Until next time, take care.
