Some say she spends her nights hunting down an assortment of monsters that would terrify children younger than six years old. Some say she sharpens her weapons in broad daylight, while onlookers tremble in fear and confusion. Some say she secretly worked at Capcom for over 50 years, and was responsible for video games existing as they are today. All we know is, her name is ThatDarnKitteh! Welcome to another Creators United interview, and today, we have a special guest.
What inspired you to be a content creator?
I've always been creative. Consuming content has made me want to be a content creator. People were just being themselves in front of the camera. I'm not doing much of it, but I wish I could put a lot more time into it. I've wanted to do something creative for a long time.
Who are your inspirations, and why?
Actually, I don't have big streamers that inspire me. Just normal, smaller streamers. One of my favourite ones is Randy Andy. He just chills and plays his games, and I like the fact that he is just natural. I do not like the popular streamers. Streaming let's you talk to the person that's watching, and I feel like some big streamers don't interact as much as they should.
What type of content do you create?
Streaming on Twitch.
What prompted you to participate in the Creators United?
Well, I've never been invited to anything like it. I've never actually expected anything like it. I would've leaped at the opportunity to get involved, so this was a great opportunity to connect with the community.
Have you ever worked with any charity events before?
Nothing this big. Just normal, smaller things. I've done charity work with horses, raising money in school through events. I've also worked with disabled children with the special Olympics, mainly horse-riding.
When you’re not a content creator/superhero, what do you do in your daily life?
I'm in digital marketing. I make Facebook and YouTube ads for multiple brands (I have AdBlocker for these occasions). I used to manage pages as well.
What are the greatest difficulties you’ve faced being a content creator?
Time. Never having time! I wish I could spend all of my time doing it. It's really hard to break into it and make money. It's not that easy. You just want to do only that, because I could sit and stream for hours. Technical difficulties too! But the biggest one is sticking to a schedule. I've got a fiancee, and I've got to take family into consideration so balancing that lifestyle is hard. Oh, and sound-proofing my room eventually. So many difficulties...
How did you feel when your content was appreciated for the first time?
Really surprised! The Creators United invite was the biggest appreciation ever. Just even in terms of my tweets being followed by randoms. It's really cool... A cool sense of validation.
What is your ultimate goal as a content creator?
To get better. As you overcome stupid issues such as sound and stuff, if I have more time, I'd like to make better quality stuff and carry on being the best that I can. And grow my audience. But I just want to have more fun! I wouldn't want to be too huge, but my ultimate goal is just to carry on.
