G’Day Gamer Guys & Gals!
Do you know what today is?
It’s YOUR day!
Thursdays on Ru’s Daily it’s all about my wonderful readers and viewers!
Today I answer your comments, questions, and sometimes fulfill your fun & silly requests!
Thanks to SE, we can connect with each other this way and I am so thankful!
Last week’s question came from one of my friends and followers on Twitter, named Eric.
And he had some really good questions that helped everyone get to know me better!
To take a peek at what he asked me…click here!
And can I just say how much I appreciate all of you who also take the time to give those who write in advice as well?!
The gaming community is indeed truly awesome.. but the Ru’s Daily community is simply a cut above the rest.
(I know I am biased…but that still doesn’t make it any less true!)
So, today’s “Talk To Me Thursday” question comes from an incredible sweetheart who reads my blogs every day and is always showing support for my gaming videos.
We are going to call her “Sam” because we want to protect anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable giving out their full name when asking advice on a personal question.
You always have the option to speak anonymously on Ru’s Daily, so please write in knowing that I always will respect your privacy!
And on another spectrum, if you want me to shout you out with your question, I am happy to do that too!
So Sam’s question is this:
This question is going to sound like a joke but it’s really not.
I want to start taking my gaming career seriously by starting to twitch and make gaming videos. (You have inspired me so much and I am so thankful for you!)
My big problem is my confidence and self-esteem. I just don’t feel comfortable promoting myself as “a hot gamer girl”. And naturally, so many “girl gamers” on Twitch are all really hot!
My strengths are my gaming skills and my humor. I love to make people laugh, and I am kind to others.
But.. I don’t know how far that will get me on Twitch with the completion of the hot girls with cleavage!
(P.s -I don’t have those either!)
What do you suggest I do, besides stuffing my shirt with socks?!
Thank you so much for being an advocate for gamer girls everywhere!
Love ya so much, Ru!”
First of all Sam, it’s comments and your jokes that make everyone love you so much! I read your comment and was rolling! I totally understand where you are coming from and love the funny spin you put on things!
Now, I know what you mean by the influx of “hot gamer girls!” And it seems like the ones that are doing the extra sexual promoting..are the ones that don’t really have the gaming skills that you or I have in the first place.
They saw an opportunity to get on another free broadcasting platform and started to do the things they would normally do in their “cam rooms” …if you catch my drift!
The type of viewer that wants to watch those girls… are the types of viewers that aren’t really looking to watch games, f you know what I mean!
So cut and dry, their sexually mature market is what it is!
And that’s fine for them! More power to those girls!
But for girls like you and me – your gaming skills, your humor, your kindness and the love shown to others, now that WILL go a long way!
THAT has staying power!
Not seeing how many times you can catch your “nip slip” in a bikini before its too late! 😉
That gets old fast, and that type of stream gets little respect.
The people I follow on twitch are a mix of both guys and girls.
Most of them I follow because of their great gaming skills, personality, and that they are playing the games I like to see.
Now, because I am not a hypocrite, I will say I do follow a few of the “hot girls”… because I like looking at pretty things just as much as the next person. 🙂
But the staying power for me and most everyone I know comes from WHO YOU ARE!
Your ability to entertain your viewers with your personality and your gaming is what brings the true fans back!
And Sam, you’ve got that in the bag baby girl!
Some of my favorite girl streamers show no cleavage at all, some stream in sweats and top knots, some like to dress up and some do cosplay!
There is only one you and that is your super strength!
Just let yourself be comfortable in your streams so your personality can shine!
Be the best you, that you can be and that will be enough! Don’t give up!
Don’t forget to follow and support new players so they can do the same for you!
And you’ve got me as a viewer anytime, Sam!
Thank you so much for your awesome question! xxxoo
And thank you all so much for visiting another day!
What do you think of the advice I gave “Sam?”
What would your advice be to her and other girl gamers who feel this way?
Tomorrow is FRIDAY and you know what that means!
RUvealed! WOot! WoOt!
Looking forward to answering the questions you want to know about me tomorrow!
See you then!
