... Anyone still here?

Been a while since I updated this website, as it's been a basic landing page for quite some time. But I figured I'd launch this little place on the internet that I call "home" again. Do people actually still have personal websites? Guess I should've thought of that before I re-launched this place. Anyway!

It's funny to read these old blog entries. How outdated they are in such simple things, like both Helium-5 and RE:WIND not being a thing anymore, my username on Twitter being different (it's @botBode now, by the way), how I do indeed stream on Twitch but was doing that on Mixer until it shut down. This internet passion project is a journey, and it's (once again) evolving into something else.

I've launched two channels last year. First; BODE Overleeft, which is a channel where I tried out several games for a couple of months but am now focussed on survival games. Good fun, you should check it out. And the other channel is Le Flamand, which is a more traditional vlogging type of channel, but in French. Also good fun, you should check it out (if you can speak French).

Also started to make some beats in a project called Limited Time Mode, but I ended that because I just didn't like that sound anymore. So now I'm focussed on a chill lo-fi project called Polyfox, and its first release will be tomorrow!

That's kind of it, I think. Probably forgetting a couple of things but hey. Just hanging around online, doing things left and right, having fun. See you on these channels and in two years on this website! Cheers.

End of an era.

Two years ago, I co-founded the company called Pixel Tree. As of yesterday, however, we closed.

I remember December 2015 well. After months of being asked to do projects for friends, family and acquaintances, Michiel Vossen and I finally decided to officially start a company. We called it Pixel Tree. The idea behind the company name was that we’d help you grow thanks to powerful online content. We had a great start, with multiple projects for Sport Vlaanderen (then Bloso), myShopi, Kerrygold and more.

Sadly, we were not able to stay on that growing path. The number of projects decreased and we had difficulty finding new projects. Looking back, there are a couple of things we could’ve done differently, but that is not how I choose to look back at Pixel Tree.

It’s been an interesting time full of laughter, frustrations and lessons. Both on a professional level, as on a personal one. We’ve grown a lot and walk away from Pixel Tree with a smile.

I’d like to thank everyone who believed in us, especially all our clients.
It’s been great.

About #BYTG2015

Next month, it’ll be time for the 2015 edition of the Belgian YouTube Gathering. Sadly, this update is to inform everyone that I will not be present at the event.

As most of you know, I was the event manager for the previous two successful #BYTG gatherings. As of this edition, I will no longer be part of the organization. This has been one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made and certainly the most bittersweet. But after months of discussions with friends and family, I can honestly say this is the right decision. I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me for over these past editions, it's been incredible.

I do encourage everyone to go to the upcoming event on the 14th of February in Antwerp! You can find more information on their Facebook event page.
