Zlapped: Welcome to episode 1 of Ask Zlapped, today’s question is from Adam.
Adam: Hi Zlapped, How long have you been streaming? And what got you into it to start with? Did you ever consider that you’d be doing this as a job?
Zlapped: I think I’ve been streaming for about 5 years now. But I’ve been doing it for a job for about 4. I got into it because I did a fun channel, a double channel, that’s why it’s called Twoeasy, with a friend of mine, he was a very popular Twitch chat dude. He was always on Honi’s channel and we were thinking about doing a stream together. Which was why we named it Twoeasy. So we started doing that and then ultimately we didn’t do it often enough. Then I just kept doing it myself.
Ultimately about 4 years ago, I was looking for a job, because I didn’t want to study at the time. So, I just said I’ll just stream while I’m looking for a job.
Then I just got bigger and bigger. Then all of a sudden I was like maybe I can do this for a living. So I was like, alright let’s take this step. Let’s try and do this for a living and I tried this for 6 months before I moved out. So year, just 6 months of doing this in my bedroom at my parents house. Then I moved to my own place.
And, no. I never considered doing this as a job. Never even occurred to me that I’d be doing gaming as a job. I’d been a pro gamer for 5 years, streamer for 4. But I never actually considered doing this as a job.
It was just a complete random thing, and only because of you guys and your support that I was able to do this as a living. I never could of imagined it. I’m very excited and very thankful for what I’ve been able to do.
