It Still Blows My Mind That Gamers Get Paid To Stream

When I was growing up I’d get told off for gaming too much.  Now people do it for 8+ hours a day and get paid more than me.  That’s crazy.

Here’s the thing: I’m not saying that streamers don’t deserve to get paid.  They work darn hard – many streaming for 10+ hours a day, 7 days a week to make ends meet.  That’s far more than I do in an office cubical and likely more than I do between my day job plus running GrownGaming.

It’s an amazing world that lets anyone hook up a webcam to their gaming setup and try to make it as an online streamer.  There are dozens of factors that come into play to make that casual streamer a successful streamer but with the right ethos, drive and a little bit of luck, anything is possible.
