For those unfamiliar, Twitch streaming is basically going live and playing games in which people can come and watch you and type to you as you play, whilst you talk to them through a mic.
I've been doing twitch streaming on/off for many years, it's one of my main hobbies, A lot of people do it for money but i actually do it just for daily social needs and fun, I mean sitting and playing games and getting to talk to other gamers as you do it? win win! It's always been something that helps me through a bad time and keeps me happy overall.
I recently decided to start it up again and made a new channel to do it on, It's also kind of a 'loophole' in my social phobia, as when people talk to me it's through text which i don't mind as much, it's not like hearing another voice etc so i find it less scary socially if you understand what i mean? It's still all very anxious going live to random people but after over 8 years of practise i managed to get to a comfy level with it where i can talk and i'm happy with it =] I'm in no way a good talker at all, but with the intention of going live just to have fun, I see no issue! If it makes me happy then i think it's an all-round nice hobby for me.
I'm excited to get on this all again, I take my breaks from it every so often but i always come back to it because i'm just a massive gamer at heart! Anyway just wanted to roll out a more positive post for once =]
