I think we all know that living in the middle of a pandemic is stressful. I work for home four days a week which is difficult for me to really focus properly. On top of that I took on a lot, I think I let things get to a boiling point where just taking a step back was the only real choice that I had but I don’t think that I ever really said that to anyone. I was just gone. Feeling like Steve from Blue’s Clues right now.
So where did I go? Well I hadn’t posted regularly in a while and then in July I decided to take a stab at streaming video games. I got chosen to be in a new game’s alpha testing and used it as a chance to see if it was something that I wanted to do.
I love it.
I stream Tuesdays/Thursdays/Sundays 9pm-11ishpm EST. I play horror, RPG, Adventure and choice based games. I’m a PNGTuber because I don’t do facecams but it’s a lot of fun and I enjoy it. If you like video games my link is above.
But what about the blog?
What does this mean for the blog? Well I don’t want to give up. Truthfully it seems that adsense isn’t worth it, which was a big part of why I went self hosted. Spending 80 bucks a year when I’m not really getting much out of it seems silly to me. So i’ll be looking at either alternatives or going back to a free site and only pay for the domain name. If anyone has cheaper hosting sites please let me know!
The last couple of months I have been hyper focused on streaming and working on that. I got to twitch affiliate in a month so I feel like it’s something I should continue to pursue. However I don’t want to give up on my book blog either. So I want to try and find a way to make this work. I’m not saying that I’ll be posting a lot but I hope to post far more than I have been.
I will not be accepting review requests or taking on a lot of blog tours if any. For now, I just wanna get back into reading and reviewing again. I wanna get back to posting again but I don’t want to push myself. I hope that you all understand.
