When I started streaming regularly again 5 months ago I wasn’t sure how it would go but over 550 followers and 20 subs later it has been a great success. When starting out content creating was only going to be a hobby, and this hasn’t changed nor will it in the near future. However, I have seen what others have achieved from content creating at a full-time level and what it could provide me in the future. Right now as a young disabled individual I am relatively healthy and have the ability to work a full-time 37 hour week job, alongside being committed to all my hobbies and interests. But I don’t know in 10 or so years whether my body will have the capacity to carry out my job and key hobbies or interests, which is where I can see the benefit of being a full-time content creator.
Right now I have no wish to finish a job I enjoy and start content creating full-time but if I can get to a point in the next 10 years where that is an option then I’ll be ecstatic! This is why I have decided to start having 6 monthly realistic goals to try and achieve so maybe one day I can create content on a full-time basis. So let me run through my first ever content creation goals!
Getting Twitch to add a disability tag
My first goal isn’t a personal one relating to my channel or something I can have much control over. But for those of you who have been following my social media for the past month have known I have been active in campaigning for Twitch to add a disability-related tag. With the petition now standing at over 1.5k signatures and my blog about why I think the Twitch tag needs to be added is one of my most read, I really hope this is something that can be implemented soon by Twitch.
