SpringSims‘ One Year Youtube Anniversary!
Hello everyone! Today I am here with SpringSims as he celebrates his first year sharing sims related content on Youtube! I managed to spare a few moments of his time to ask him some questions about his experience.
First things first, what are some of your highlights from your first year on Youtube?
I could say so many things about what happened in the first year of being on YouTube, but I guess I would list just a few for now. Some highlights that were and still are very eventful would have to be my first room build that I ever did on my channel. When I reached that 100 subscriber mark on YouTube I was really excited that 100 people were watching my videos.
Awesome! So what has being a simmer on Youtube taught you over the past year?
Being a simmer in the YouTube community has taught me that it is always a good thing to stay true to yourself & to always have patience. A few things I have seen in the past year have taught me that originality is always the key to being an ‘awesim’ simmer in the community.
I have to agree originality is key! Now lets talk achievements, what are some of your biggest?
When I first joined You Tube, I could say that my biggest achievements would have to be when I first reached 1K subscribers. Which was pretty amazing might I say. The second one would have to be when I reached 10k just a few days ago, I thought I would never reach that number for a long time. I guess with hard work and dedication it paid off.
Congratulations! Do you have any advice for fellow simmers wanting to achieve their own goals on Youtube?
I would have to say that staying positive in your videos and originality is always the key to being a great simmer on YouTube. Well at least it worked for me, so it might work for you as well. With some recommendations for recording software I would have to say OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) is the best for me and Audacity for audio recording. People often say that you need a high end computer to start simming on Youtube. I would say that is not the case, I film all my videos on a regular laptop. But pretty much overall Originality, Patience and being positive is the key.
Great advice, I definitely agree about OBS It’s free and it works! Now more on the actual game itself, what have been some of your favorite Sims 4 releases over the past year and why?
At the top of my list for my favorite sims 4 game it would have to be either Get To Work or Spa day. Get to Work is a good expansion pack because I like how we could go to work with our sims on a daily basis. My favorite career would have to be the Doctor career just because I could actually treat people like a real doctor it was a lot of fun in my opinion. With Spa Day, now that I’m getting into building in the Sims 4 I like the modern look of the colors schemes & the objects that we got. Also the yoga and Wellness skill that came with the game.
