Over the past few months, I’ve been focussing my time both on my business setting everything up and helping the amazing team behind Glimesh. If you go to my Instagram you can actually see me wear one of those shirts with their logo.
I support what they do from the beginning. At first I was just a sneaky, watch Twitter and watch the story of the platform on fold. But it’s pretty normal to be skeptical at first. Not everyday do you find yourself lost in a new world. But as I saw the story unfold and watched and read more on the ideals and the passion and drive behind it, I felt more in tone with my ideals then other platforms do.
I am a fan of discovering new things, new people, but also new stories. So that being a core element of a business always makes me smile.
I always felt like streamers would be a great group to invest time in. People stream from all types of ages and backgrounds in one place. And after I began to stream myself I enjoyed it a lot. Streaming for me became kind of a way for me to share my own art, tell a story to the world and explore it with people around me. And I was happy I did. Due to streaming I met quite a few people. From video game streamers to art streamers to even music, everything was there.
But, I felt pretty unseen, even if I shared content, send and tweeted everything, ran events, podcasts and all. It never picked up pace. But I knew that. I knew it would always be a struggle.
What do I do with Glimesh?
You may be wondering why this company has become part of my brand too, of my Twitter name and my website. Well, short term. Glimesh is new, a new experience for many.
But for me, I joined a team. Back in October I saw a tweet come out of them asking for team members. It immediately began to tickle. Glimesh, why not sign up and become part of the team. I speak two languages, moderated various different communities. Got connections all around me. I think I would be fit for this team. So I joined, and here I am, part of the Glimesh Community Team. And I’m wholeheartedly proud of making this choice. Even when the roads are not always easy, even if I’m not easy as a person. I believe In this team and I believe in me being able to do this.
And I know probably no one of the team reads this, but I want all of you to know that I thank you guys for trusting me and believing in me. I may not be the easiest person in the world, but I’m here if you need me.
