Coming Back From Time Off & Recharging

I have recently realised that I need to take some time to step back every now and again just to recharge and get back on track. But in doing this the blog has suffered, one of my goals for 2019 was to blog more but I think I have blogged a lot less, but that is because my recharging time has been me spent watching YouTube instead of gaming to gain content. It has meant I am on the back foot for a lot of my goals, like completing the backlog and gaming more. I just haven't had the motivation to game other than the odd few games of FIFA. However, now I am recovering from this operation I have had plenty of time to sit and plan out what I want to do from now on in terms of looking after myself and still doing what I love whilst still getting jobs in the house done. So here is the plan.

Even though I have had no motivation to game I have missed it, so from now on when I get the urge to game I aren't going to put it off and do something like go shopping instead. I really don't need to shop half as much as I do and if I stay in and game when I want to, not only will it benefit the backlog but it will also benefit my bank account a lot. 

I am getting far too much sleep lately and it is actually making me more tired, so instead of getting straight into bed after work I am going to be more productive by either doing some work on the blog or again doing some gaming. I have found that gaming is a stress reliver for me so I definitely need to do it more often. 

Another thing I want to do is up my blogging game, which will mean that even if I am doing little bits on it each day I will still have either a Saturday or Sunday just dedicated to blogging i.e getting images together, planning the following weeks posts and getting as many posts written as possible as well as working on future ideas and content, making sure anything important is written in a to do list or on the relevant date in my diary. There will be no more weeks where I go completely off the radar (I hope). I also want to make sure I am continuing with current series I have going on such as my top 5's and content creator interviews. Lately I have been terrible at getting my ideas down and by the time I get around to working on the blog my ideas are gone, but hopefully that will be a thing of the past. Keep an eye on the blog too as I am thinking of changing up its look a little.

There is just one thing I want to do in the games room and that is run an ethernet cable to my PC as the current internet is absolutely terrible in my little corner. I am hoping once the ethernet is in speeds increase and I can get a lot more out of my PC.

The ethernet cable brings me onto my next thing I want to do... finally start Twitch and possibly YouTube. I recently asked about streaming direct from my PS4 which I am hoping to get set up soon but I also want to get full use out of my gaming PC and stream from their too. I have been looking at equipment to get me started from the PC and can't wait to get going once this internet issue is sorted. Fingers crossed I can get streaming very soon, I am looking at possibly starting off with FIFA and then mixing it up every now and again. With Liam now working every other Saturday this could be the perfect time to get any streams done and possibly record some YouTube videos, the videos/streams won't be spectacular as I am pretty rubbish at all games but I am hoping they are going to be fun.  

So there you have it that is what I am hoping to do now I am coming back to the blog and learning to recharge as I go along. If you have any recommendations for any posts you would like to see, equipment I should get or games I should stream/record please let me know.

See you soon.
