Over the past few years, I've found it harder and harder to balance IRL work and being a Youtube content creator/Lets Play-er. It's a very fine balance that anyone trying to do both has to find and unless you are massively popular on youtube, maintaining that balance is incredibly difficult.
Currently I find myself in the position where I need to do IRL work in order to be able to sustain my youtube career but by doing the IRL work, it leaves me with very little time to do my passion and because of this, I find that any drive to record and edit videos disappears. I can't just give up IRL work either in order to do youtube full time as I'm no where near large enough to be able to earn enough to sustain myself. I'm sure many of you out there have found yourself in a similar position.
Gaming, making videos and entertaining people through my videos is my passion and I've been told that I'm quite good at it (not sure if that's true or not but it was nice to hear regardless).
If there's anyone else out there that's been in a similar position, feel free to comment with thoughts or advice :)
