We run quite a lot of helpful, industry-specific posts here at FemHype! From Emm’s take on breaking into games journalism to Alyssa’s interview in regards to becoming a games writer to our Sunday Loot series with the latest job offers, there are a lot of ways you can learn more about joining the industry here. Still, it isn’t easy, and I’m hopeful that this post may give you the confidence to start or continue that Let’s Play channel you’ve been thinking about.
Ever since my sister detailed her YouTube editing escapades in “Game, Set, Match: How to Start a YouTube Community,” I’ve considered writing my own piece about being a Let’s Player. For almost a year, Paige and I have been running and maintaining the FemHype YouTube channel, and I feel like it’s about time we shared more of what we’ve learned over the past few months!
It can be difficult to build your own brand, particularly in the games space, but that’s what I’ll be helping you with today. If you ever entertained the idea of entertaining others, I’m here to tell you how you can do it! Once you’ve got your recording equipment ready (read Paige’s post!), take a look at this list.
