How To Start A Gaming Channel

This blog will cover how to start a gaming channel on YouTube. If you are a new/small YouTuber, you should start off light and work your way up. You should start with someone basic/cheap and then upgrade once you know you will stick with YouTube.

Hey, you want to start a YouTube gaming channel, but don't know where to start? Well stop your searching, you've come to the right place. I will share everything you need to start up your YouTube gaming channel. This blog will have affiliate links, this means I will get a small reward for showing you something cool at no extra cost to you. I will only show you products that I know of/use/trust. 

Know What Content You Wanna Make:

Are you going to make let's plays, reviews, reaction videos? Figure that out. Don't listen to other people. Do what makes you happy. If you do something you have no interest, that will put off your viewers. Your topic may be too broad, at least you enjoy it.

Get Yourself a Mic: If you're just starting out. I would start out with a basic mic like this. Remember a new/small YouTuber is going to be clicking on this blog most likely and they won't have a ton of money or their folks are gonna buy them something and don't wanna spend too much money. If you've decided you want to upgrade your mic, then I suggest upgrading to a Blue Snowball.    Why spend more than you can afford. If your budget is 50 dollars, buy something that's under 30 dollars.

You will need some editing: If you're starting I would suggest iMovie if you're on a MAC. Moviemaker has been discontinued. You can use VSDC video editor, Wondershare Filmora, Hitfilm, etc for Windows users. Once you build your money then I would upgrade to Sony Vegas and other advanced editors.

Video Recorder: OBS is free if you're on a computer. If you're on PS4, Xbox.  I suggest something like this.  Remember I'm linking basic cheap stuff because when you're a small channel, you don't have that much money.

A Computer:  Regardless of what your gaming on, you will need a computer for editing. Most editors require good CPUs, GPUs and RAM to run effectively, so you're gonna have to do some investing. It really depends on what you wanna do. If you want something basic and plan on using a basic editor. This laptop should be able to run Wondershare Filmora. I can run Filmora and the computer I use has AMD Radeon graphics with a weak CPU or 1.34ghz. You can GPU render with Filmora. This laptop is your best bet. Otherwise, with 4GB RAM you will have choppy playback in your editor. I still would ask your tech-savvy friend to make sure. This would be good for storing your videos. This laptop should be able to handle the VSDC editor. I have major issues with VSDC because of my RAM. RAM is most important with the performance of your editor as well as GPU/CPU.
Even though you're going to use an editor that can run on a potato, still you need at least 8GB of RAM for better performance with your editor.

Get Yourself Some Headphones: You will need headphones because if your mic is close enough to your computer speakers, your overall audio will have an echo which will put off the viewers. I suggest some headphones like these.

I made a video about this topic as well. Feel free to check that out.  I suggest you buy this equipment little by little. You can bookmark this blog so you can refer to it if you need to.

Sometimes 'real world' jobs are not for us. They are built the around neurotypical force. Remember that NTs don't have the issues that we have. We are sometimes forced to accommodate the Nts and that is not right. This article talks about the jobs that I feel is right for us. It will probably be won't be a walk in the park to get.

How Autism Greatly Limits My Ability To Work A Job

I am trying to apply for SSI, got denied twice because they claim 'my conditions are not bad enough to keep me from working.' I got a call from the layers I am going through and I have to go to court. That probably will get denied too. It's harder now for people to get SSI because of people who leech off of benefits that they don't need. It's harder for us since we are not physically disabled. I thought I explain how my ability to perform a job is greatly limited to the point where getting a job will be basically impossible.

You are aware the gov shut down for 34 days last month and there were articles about food stamps and WIC being affected. I shared it on a page and this asshole told me to 'get off my ass and get a job.' I call these people assholes because getting a job is not that simple, one cannot walk into Target and come out with a job. You have to send in applications and it's you vs hundreds, thousands of people wanting the same job. Another t…

My Struggles With Finding A Job

I am currently unemployed due to my autism. I have trouble finding a job that fits my needs and has the settings that I require. I will perform better if the job has no sensory triggers. If the jobs have these sensory triggers, it will be hard to perform a job at 100%. I will be showcasing how it will be hard for me to find and keep a job due to my autism. In fact, many of us struggle to find and hold down a job. Around 80% of adults with autism are unemployed. Why is this? There are several reasons as to why most of us struggle with getting or keeping jobs.
Reason Why Finding/Holding A Job Will Be Hard
No Jobs With The Settings I Need To Function, I need a job that doesn't have a lot of people, no noise, where I can work at my own pace, with direct clear instructions, low stress, low anxiety, no lifting due to my shoulder injury and arthritis flare-ups. The list can go on. I can't function without these settings. Retail jobs such as fast-food and stores get busy at specific tim…
