Well, one of my biggest downsides is I tend to forget about things like this and get caught up in what's going on in my life. I never mean it and I always have good intentions when it comes to posting regularly, but it isn't always easy, particularly in a fairly busy household such as the one I currently reside in.
I don't get much time to play my games, much less make content for them, and while I keep waiting for the circumstances to change, sometimes it feels like it's never going to (unless I put my foot down and make them change). I know at some point, things will change though. I just continue to be uncertain as to when this will happen.
The idea is, of course, to give you something consistent to look at on here, something to make you WANT to be a Patron.
I haven't done that though. Sometimes I forget to post uploaded videos for weeks at a time when I do actually create something. Sometimes I neglect editing footage that I have actually recorded.
So I get why someone might visit this page and decide "nah, I'm not going to support this fool" before leaving to find a Patreon worth supporting.
Things are happening though, even if you can't always see them. I've been slowly working myself into a financial position to finally build a desktop PC that will give me a machine more powerful than anything I've had in my life. I'm working at upgrading other pieces of equipment as well, from the mundane (a new shock mount and windscreen for my mic) to the important (a sit-to-stand desk and new chair) to the previously mentioned PC that will likely end up costing nearly $2k to put together.
With the filing of my taxes today, I'm one step closer to these things happening. I'll be receiving a decent refund in the next couple of weeks, at which point I'll begin the process of getting the parts I want to use in the build, maybe a new camera to record the build (yes, I want to record it), and then be ready to rock and roll with this content creation.
Of course, a lot of what I do continues to be dependent on my ex getting her housing taken care of because I still don't have a private place to do my recordings a livestreams, which is kind of important. Given my child is often up until nearly midnight and is quite noisy while she's awake, it gives me virtually no solid time to actually record and such.
But, I can't complain too much. I get to see her every day still, and that's kind of a big deal.
For now though, thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks to anyone who considers supporting me. I can't say it will be worthwhile, but I'll definitely try my best.
