I waited a few months until around the start of this year, and then I decided to go and make another run for it, trying to behave a bit better. This time I was motivated. I had better gear, a better microphone, and I was a bit better at gaming (I based my new channel around Minecraft). I made some friends over on the gaming chat platform called ‘Discord’ and have since then participated in big events and have been in multiple livestreams with friends on their road to 100 and 200 subscribers.
I also took care that they got their goal every time by broadcasting the news and sub goals on all my platforms online.
I personally have not uploaded to YouTube in a while due to burns on my hand which are pretty much healed today. So I might pick it up again. And today I felt the urge to knock it up a notch and get it going on a higher level because my motivation is higher and stronger then before.

7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).
So I set up everything and got into the game for about 2 hours.
Everything was a lot of fun and I kept saying how happy I was to finally be recording with my friends.
At the end the big blow fell: my movie maker and screen recorder both crashed and stopped without giving me a warning.
I was horribly ashamed and had to call my friends to tell them what happened.
In the end, we just had a good laugh about it, but since that time I’ve enabled all crash and stop reports to be shown if something should happen!
