At Streamate headquarters in Seattle, WA, we’re savoring every last ray of sunshine. Every last clear, blue-skied day. Every opportunity to walk from the office to the nearest coffee house without a torrential downpour flattening that morning’s meticulously styled coiffure. And those fierce knee-high suede boots? You know the ones with the ruching on the side that hug your legs so perfectly? Don’t even. I’ve learned the hard way over the years (and many unfortunate wet-sock episodes later) not to even bother unless the product label reads Gortex or Neoprene, as anything else is sure to be drowned under a deluge on their maiden sashay down Stewart Street. Autumn has arrived in the Pacific Northwest.

I sat down this evening to reflect on the significance of autumn beyond pumpkin spiced lattes and cuffing season. During the autumn equinox in the Northern hemisphere, day and night are the same length. Some cultures associate this day with balance (hello, Libra season!), which prompted me to wonder: how do we manage to find our own personal balance throughout the day-to-day this time of year? As the days grow shorter, and we march toward the impending busy-ness of the holidays, it’s really easy to hunker down indoors and slip into a spiral of work, and to-do lists, and upcoming event-planning, or figuring out how to make and save more money, that it’s easy to fall into the habit of self-neglect. We’re all guilty of this at some point or another. We work hard in a crusade to achieve our goals, and live our lives, and take care of our loved ones that, at times, it can feel overwhelming. Sexy, right? But how can we possibly manage to produce our best work, or play the roles that we need to play whether it be parent, partner, pet owner, friend, neighbor, or otherwise, if we don’t take care of ourselves first?

With this question, dear friends, I encourage you to find balance in your day starting with doing something for yourself… something that makes you feel good, or even better- fucking amazing. Whether it be taking time in the morning to slowly sip coffee while scrolling through IG, or taking a mid-day break to get your nails done, or catching happy hour after a long cam session. This isn’t just self-care, but self-preservation, so you can continue to crush your goals and then some. Finding balance doesn’t have to be earth-shattering, but merely taking an hour out of the 24 each day for just you. If you’re like me, there simply never feels like there are enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you want or need to, but taking time for yourself to step away and power down for a bit will allow you some perspective as well as time to re-energize- to bring things into clearer focus when you do eventually return.

JULY NEWSLETTER UPDATES FOR JULY 12, 2018

HELLLO SUMMER! If you’re in the northern hemisphere, we hope you are enjoying all of the sun and warmth! Streamate decided to heat things up this month with the release of some great new features, including the rollout of its new non-Flash based model chat interface, SMCONNECT, which is now available for all models to try. Get onboard early and give SMCONNECT a test drive! SMCONNECT will eventually replace the current Flash-based chat interface over the coming years (Flash is scheduled to be eliminated from Chrome in 2020 and other web browsers in the near future). You may notice that it is missing a few key features, like Gold Shows and Cam2Cam… don’t worry! Streamate will be adding these features on SMCONNECT as we continue to build it out. 😉 The original (Flash) version of the Streamate Model chat interface will continue to be available as we build out SMCONNECT.

SMCONNECT was built with YOU in mind, so we hope you enjoy some of the new added features that are there to make your live cam experience more streamlined, like color/icon-grouped Quick Responses, dark/light themes, language preferences, and the integration of interactive vibrators (tip vibes)!

Also covered in this update is the multiple-video upload feature (COMING SOON), and new Sort feature under Earnings Reports that will allow you to sort your earnings according to different categories.

If you have questions, let us know! And don’t forget to use the feedback form from the SMCONNECT chat interface to let us know what you think about the updates!
