People who work a job and stream are the true legends. Think about it like this, you work a full time job ~40 hours a week you have ~8 hours a day where you work (considering you work 5 days a week) for example, I work 8-5, I come home and I’ll stream til about 9:30 or 10 then I do homework for an hour or so (I am a full time college student). The total from that is ~14 hours of my day and that’s not including sleep (obviously). Say i sleep ~8 hours that gives me roughly 2 hours of free time a day. And keep in mind doing homework for me getting my degree can take more than an hour.
You never know what someone is going through behind the camera or behind the gameplay. If they look tired they may be working another job. If they look upset, they may be going through some rough part in their life. Reach out, engage, be a friend to them.
When you go into someone’s stream next time, truly engage. Be a friend to them. Ask them how their day went. You could potentially make that streamers day. A lot of streamers like me love to create content for the viewers, and it’s not always an easy task. So the effort that streamers put into their content shouldn’t go unnoticed.
TLDR: Some streamers have a work life, school life, social life, they put their heart and soul into streaming. Be a viewer or a friend to them and try and make their day, you never know what is going on behind the gameplay or camera.
