I've always talked about not looking at your numbers. To clarify, when I say that, I'm talking about looking at your numbers when you're streaming. It's the worst thing you can do, because it can be demoralizing if you aren't seeing what's expected. If you are in a position of wanting to grow to do this full time, it's important to look at your numbers OUTSIDE of stream time. Understanding what games do well for you, what times of day do well for you, and many other data points are good things to know. The thing to consider, is that as you look at those numbers in the context of others, it can really get to you mentally. With the release of Socialblade for Mixer, it's easy to compare yourself to others, which can put you in a headspace of competitiveness and when things fluctuate like they do, you have to be careful not to put much validitation in the numbers and to stay focused on what really matters, the PEOPLE in your community. Numbers are great, but people are better. God Bless!
