This month's edition of Streamer Spotlight is all about @papernopen (PN)! She plays on PC in our Overwatch Division! Let's see what she has to say!
RY: What made you decide to start streaming?
PN: I got into streaming because a bunch of friends encouraged me to stream. They thought my gameplay was entertaining and because of quarantine, I was suddenly given a lot of free time to pour into a creative hobby!
RY: It’s awesome to have such supportive friends and great to see entertaining content! How long have you been streaming for?
PN: I have been streaming for about 8 months. Having a great time so far and can't wait for what the future brings!
RY: That's great! What is the most fun part about streaming for you?
PN: Talking with new people almost every stream is the most fun part of streaming. I get super happy when I see my little community chatting with each other; it's the best thing that can happen to a small streamer. I have made a lot of new friends streaming, and I can't wait to make even more!
RY: Yes! You can never have too many!! What has been the most challenging part of streaming?
PN: Most challenging part was when I had to balance my personal life with streaming. It was hard to explain to my employer for childcare why I couldn't be available 24/7 and that she needed to respect my hours that I asked not be touched because they were the hours I streamed. She didn't respect my hobby and thought that what I was doing did not take that much effort. It was really hard to have a consistent streaming schedule when I was working for this employer.
RY: I’m glad you no longer have to work for them! It’s important to be respected! Have you ever gotten burnt out from gaming or streaming? How do you deal with that?
PN: There was about a week or so before I had reached affiliate where I was right at the brink of getting affiliate; however, I had not reached the follower count yet. I was experiencing some serious burnout. It felt like I was so close, yet so far away because I only had half the followers I needed to get it. However, I just really started putting myself out there, making friends with more people, and I ended up getting a huge shout out that really helped me and boosted me all the way to 50!
RY: That sounds major! I’m really excited for you! Any tips or words to someone just starting out?
PN: Make like-minded streamer friends! They will help you out a lot and you will help them out!
RY: Awesome! What is your twitch link and stream schedule?
PN: Twitch here! Sundays 8-10pm EST and on the TG Twitch on Thursdays from 3-5 pm EST!
And that’s all for this month’s Streamer Spotlight! I hope you all enjoyed learning more about papernopen, and you can check out the game clips below!
