Hello everyone and welcome to our place!
Today I’m doing a little update. The reason is just that I’m going on holidays next week!!!!
However, I won’t have access to the Internet which means that I won’t be posting nothing next week! (I can hear the crying over here).
Nevertheless, writing a post only about that is way too short, so I decided to write a little more about what is happening in my life!
– Streaming –
Let’s start with Twitch, shall we? Well, long story short I’ve not been doing it ahah
Why I have not been doing it? Well, first of all not have any viewers most of the time help 😀 But, that’s not really it! Lately, I’ve been all over the place (I always say this I know) and the time to twitch (or the head for it) have been lacking…
As you know, I’m in the pursuit of a new job, I have the blog here which from what you have seen I’ve been working even more into it (we’ll go there in a while) and I’ve been working in my secret project (still not saying). This, along with work… Well, I just can’t have the energy to stream when I get home. I mean, no one wants to watch a guy almost dead on camera, right? So, yeah, I’ve been playing, but for myself.
Nevertheless, I will come back, don’t worry! 🙂 But, before that, I actually want to work in the plan for the Twitch. I want to understand what voice do I want to have on Twitch and go accordingly with that.
– Work –
Time to spill the bins about why I’m looking for a new job. First of all, thank you so much for you all concern when I tweeted about this subject! It really melted my heart to know you really do give an F about my life ❤
But, don’t worry! I’m not unemployed! I’m still working… And hating ahah xD Long story short, every day there are things happening at my company that completely go against my way of doing things and work. So, during the last few months, I’ve become more and more demotivated. One day, there was something that completely crossed the line and I decided it was time to leave. However, until I get a job I won’t quit (I need the money!!!)
This way, I’ve been applying to different jobs. However, still no “yes” to anything. In fact, most of the time people don’t even answer me LOL
I have 3 career paths as options:
- Working in the gaming industry
- Working as a content creator – with no management whatsoever, just creating
- Continuing my digital marketing career
The problem is, I’m not going to relocate to other country and I don’t want to go work 1 hour from my home. I’m sorry, but I just don’t want to lose that kind of life/work balance. This way, I’m trying to find things close to my home or remotely. In fact, most of the jobs I applied are remote and the company is normally from USA… No answers though… Bah… But, well… Since I’m from Portugal it’s probably because of that.
– Blogging –
I think you can clearly see that I’ve been working more in the content creation for the blog. I mean, you can see that I’ve been doing more collabs and I’m actually trying to put more content out. Let’s see if I’m able to continue this xD
I’ve also started using Pinterest again with the idea of being able to bring traffic to the blog. Since my account was not really about Anime I had to delete most of my boards and went from 300+- followers to 17 ahah 😀 But, it was something that had to be done! If you are on Pinterest you can find me here!
Regarding money… Well, no money at all so far ahah! However, you probably saw that I changed my strategy. I stopped using the “Merch of the Week” posts. Instead, you can always see the manga and Anime of the month in the right side of my posts. And, when it makes sense I will add affiliate links to the manga or the DVD of the Anime I’m talking about.
Sincerely I’m getting more clicks, but yet no money xD
I’m also seriously thinking about switching to WordPress.org. It’s just… Well… You basically get the same things you get in WordPress.com on Business by paying less than the personal one xD BUT, and this is really important! I will only change if I find a way to bring you all with me and have my posts being shown in the reader. Basically, only if I make sure that for you things continue the same! I won’t, and I’ll say it again WON’T go away from this community! At this moment you are a big part of why I blog and I’m not going away! Of course, my wordpress.com account will continue to exist and I’ll continue commenting on your stuff… I mean… It’s not like I’ve been able to do that in the past few weeks… But, you understand… Right?
– Secret Project –
You already know that I’m not going to say what it is yet… But, I’ve been working a lot on this and I think I’ll be ready to announce it real soon! In fact, the idea is to talk about it when I get to 500 followers so we will see!
I just have to say is that I’m really excited and SCARED about this project! It’s a big one and that will take a lot of work from me… Moreover, I want to make sure it’s good for you to like it xD Nevertheless, for the time being, I’ve been able to work on t without any missteps and I have a clear idea of what I want from it… So, hopefully, everything goes well 😛
– Conclusion –
And that’s it! 😀 That’s how my life is at the moment! It has good days where I feel on top of the world, and then there are days that I just feel I’m not good enough… Strangely, I’m not talking about blogging right now but my profession xD
When it comes about blogging I’m really happy with it and working on it! I think it’s because of the collabs! It’s always so good to work on a post and feel a bonding with our fellow bloggers is deepening at the same time! :p
What about you? How has been your life? You all know that I love to know about you and your life! 😀 Tell me in the comments! 😉
