I am writing again

Posted Blog

Well its only been just a damn long time hasn’t it! I almost completely forgot I have an actual blog for actual blogging but we can’t all be perfect can we! So to get back into the swing of things I thought I’d show you what I’ve been doing over the past year.

[h2]2016[/h2]

Firstly, I’ve jumped back into EVE Online in a big way and I now want to start creating content for the game community. I’m talking about a Twitch stream, artwork, and other cool stuff.

After a big web design project didn’t work out I’m taking a step back from that side of my work and focusing more on media. I’ve dabbled with a few other things here & there but I always seem to end up back at media, which makes sense since I have a degree in the damn thing!

My 2016 in photos, I bet you’re squinting trying to see these!

‘One year later’ and I can 100% say I’ve moved on, I think this has been the biggest push to move forwards with everything I’m doing and that is definitely a good thing.

[h3]YouTube[/h3]

The whole media thing brings me to my YouTube channel. Ever since I started this channel the plan was to upload once a week which we can all agree I haven’t stuck to. Last year I uploaded about 2 years worth of content, some of which was a bit awkward considering the circumstances, but thats life. Get over it.

This summer I’m going to Summer In The City, finally! I was supposed to be going with Rachael but she can’t get the time off so I’m gonna be meeting some other ’emerging talent’ (Google’s phrase, not mine) that I met last year at a meetup so I won’t be twiddling my thumbs in a corner somewhere wondering why I’m down there on my own.

[h5]I work for Deliveroo on some days of the week, they know me as Squidwolf.[/h5]

I really want to get back into Stickam YouNow but I just can’t think of anything to do live in front of a webcam (get your head out of the gutter) but I’m going to try to commit to once a week streaming. I’ve made some friends on there so maybe there could be a collab? This is out of my depth.

And speaking of the YouTuber community, Google has finally created a website for us to get to know each other. As far as I’m aware its invite only at the moment but they’ll undoubtedly open it up to everything soon enough.

[h3]Day Trading[/h3]

A short little segway before we continue is that I did try to get back into uni. Well I got an unconditional offer for Banking and Finance (wait, what?!) but unfortunately Student Finance England wouldn’t let me get my 5th year of funding for a course that isn’t related to my degree. Ugh, maybe its for the best.

[h3]Twitch[/h3]

So this Twitch stream. Well, relating it to the above, I’m creating a weekly market show for EVE Online. It’ll be live and it’ll focus on the EVE Economy. Along with that, I’m creating a news website to go with it.

It sounds ridiculous but you’ll just have to wait until its all setup to see what the idea is.

[h3]Minecraft[/h3]

Yep, next question.


So thats my life in 2016, see you next week.

Edit: Wow, its really been 7 months since I last wrote on here!

Because shit doesn’t run on fresh air.

This is a lot of stuff, where is the monies coming from?!
