UK based 'engineer' (to use the term loosely), who lives in Yorkshire. I love photography, music, art and literature. Im not any good at any of it but I like it. If Im playing a game it will more than likely be an RPG. 
  1. Very nice post, although it does make me feel a little sad to see someone who his clearly talented struggle with self belief. Grab the bull by the horns, if you cannot believe in yourself, believe in the people that believe in you. They are not going to throw away their cold hard cash in supporting you if they did not believe in you. Your are not a fraud and you are not pulling wool over peoples eyes. Now relax, enjoy what you are doing and keep up the great work! P.s I appreciate that what I have just said means nothing to an Anxiety suffer which is generally irrational, but it needed to be said anyway. P.s.s Your instagram link doesnt work
  2. Good post with some good tips.... but, wouldnt the key one be.... "any content is better than no content"? Most if not all successful YouTubers, Twitchers and social creatives will admit that when they first started their channels/pages their content was poor or unfocussed and that only by continuing to produce and upload their content did they learn their craft and refine their content. The biggest hurdle to overcome, would be to continue to produce content even though the number of views, follows and subscribes is small or doesnt seem to be growing. It would be easy to become demoralised. But with continued production of content, your skills will increase and you will eventually find a style that works for you and will draw in the viewers. Sorry just thought I had to put this out there....
  3. Forgive the poor phrasing, but what a lovely post. An insightful look into how crippling anxiety can been and the knock on affect it can have to your life and the lives of those around you. My wife suffers with anxiety and quite frequently has panic attacks. She has learned some of the triggers, but is still caught out at times by a panic attack for no known reason. Fortunately she has some very understanding a helpful collegues that help her through the distressing time, as I would say 90% of the attacks occur when she is at work. Your post is very nicely written with easy and enjoyable flow.... keep up the great blog! (....says the guy who cannot write for toffee)
  4. Been gaming since the early 80's. Started off with the Atari 2600 in fact might have been the Grandstand Sports console before that! Had the usual computers Spectrum 48k, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga before finally purchasing my first PC in the mid to late 90s. Consoles wise, I sort of missed the whole sega and Nintendo thing and went the PS and Xbox route. These days I don't get much time to game but I do still dabble. Currently playing Sekiro on the PS4, Guild Wars 2 and Witcher 2 on the Mac.
