Good afternoon everyone!

Let's start off with a brief introduction. My name is Andrew, or "Qwazyd0gg" if we are using my online handle/alias, and I am a New Brunswick based content creator with a passion for gaming and technology. A passion that ultimately led me into consumer and business based electronics and telecommunications sales and/or repairs,  which has been my profession for the past last 14 years.  A couple of years ago I decided to try my hand at YouTube and created my own channel and brand surrounding my online gamer handle "Qwazyd0gg". The channel started as a Let's Play style channel, where I would pre-record and/or stream a variety of games. I did this for about a year, accumulating a plethora of equipment along the way such as cameras, green screens, lights, an Elgato sponsorship (Although shortly lived), and more to continuously grow my channel in attempts to take things to the next level.  I met a lot of cool people along the way, some of which have actually "made it" as you would say.

 

Although I enjoyed gaming, I began to grow tired of recording and uploading gaming content. Playing games started to take the form of a chore with the set up of my equipment, lighting, audio, and to force myself to commentate over gameplay that was "trendy" rather than what I would have rather been playing. Around that time, another video on my channel began to grow in views and engagement. This was a tutorial video educating viewers on the proper process of disassembling a Seagate external HDD and using it as a higher storage replacement option within the original PS4 launch console.  Today the video is irrelevant as you can simply use an external HDD on a PS4 console with modern software, but this got me thinking. Can I producing technology based content? Will people watch it?

 

Fast-forward ahead about another year or so and here I am, making technology based reviews, overviews, and unboxing videos. It was a rocky start for sure, and some of my initial content within my growing stages was cringe worthy at best, but I was finally having fun creating again. Today I have roughly 3,700 subscribers and a view count of close to 1 million views. But, do you want to know the best part? I am enjoying content creation again.

 

My children are growing up, now 9 and 3 years old, so spare time to record has dwindled down; however, I am always looking for new outlets to stay creative. Thus bringing me here, to this blog! Although I may not have a lot of time to record content amidst my busy and not so quiet household filled with pets and kids, I can surely put my fingers to work while my youngest watches Mighty Morphing Power Rangers (The 1993 original series. Let's be real, it's the only good one!) on Netflix.

 

So, now that you know my background, you now have my ears (Or eyes I should say). What types of things would you like to talk about and/or discuss on this blog? Software? Hardware? Trends? Gaming? Share stories? Camera Equipment? YouTube? I can keep going on and on, but let me leave this with you. 

 

I would like to see this blog grow in viewership and engagement, and I think we can make that happen together.

I've just never had the knack for reviewing games, movies, music and anything else. Back in the day I did a comprehensive review of Gran Turismo 5, for Kirby Y's then review site called Gamer Boyz (I think that was it). And I found it difficult to get all of my thoughts down into comprehensive and grammatically correct way. I also struggled with just wanting to play the game, and not thing about the game. Maybe it's just that English is not my first language, or I just suck at English, but either way I didn't get asked to do more reviews, which was ok by me.

I am glad there are people out there such as yourself you have a passion for reviews, so I can get educated on these products, ie. your tv review on TCL TV's. Now I know what I will replace my next TV with.

Cheers and thank you for all the input!

Thanks man! I'm glad my ramblings can help you out :)

I've always enjoyed writing, but never really tried applying it towards anything other than school work 15 years ago lol
