Being a fairly seasoned cam model, I receive questions from beginner models every so often. I don’t mind sharing or exchanging tips and advice one bit. In fact, I think it’s flattering when models come to me for input.
A few weeks ago I found this thought-provoking question in my tumblr inbox.
I have no idea why she chose the number 7. I’m guessing she wanted to go easy on me and cut a few off the typical top 10. Or maybe 7 is her lucky number. Either way, once I began typing I realized I have a lot to say.
It all kind of spewed out with little attention to grammar or ease of reading, but it’s raw and honest. Maybe some day I’ll make a more astute post regarding cam model guidance. Hopefully I’ll have new adult industry related questions to answer! ^_^
So thank you anonymous cam model. I hope you as well as other cam models find these top 7 tips helpful.
1. Patience is key: Money isn’t just going to rain on you every single day. Be prepared to stick it out and smile.
If it’s dead sign off to do something productive, sign on earlier next time. Every model has slow periods.
2. Competition is fierce: MyFreeCams has an insane amount of active models at this point. You’ll have to be either extremely slutty or extremely entertaining to get viewers. Try to stand out with your talents and personality. Always be pleasant.
If you’re willing to fist your cooch and shove baseball bats up your bum hole, you probably won’t need a personality or talent. Models like that burn out pretty quick though.
3. Never compromise your comfort: No amount of money is worth feeling bad about yourself later.
If you’re comfortable being more risqué with your shows, go for it! If you feel apprehensive in the least bit about certain acts, don’t do it!
I’ve stuck to my guns for several years now, and I’m doing pretty well. So don’t give in to pressure.
4. Don’t feed the trolls: Even if arguing with them is fun or tempting at times, because most of them are so fucking stupid it’s hilarious, ignore them.
They have nothing better to do and they aren’t worth your time. The premiums with money are there to be turned on, not to watch angry man babies or jealous girls try to take over your chat room.
Disable guests, use the ignore/ban function, forget about them.
5. Keep your personal life and camming separate: Stalkers, psychopaths, imposters, trolls. The girls who put their private life on blast are foolish.
6. Ignore MFC drama: I’m oblivious to the gossip and I’m happy that way.
I don’t allow people to bash other models in my chat room. I don’t care who is the most hated or most popular. Don’t get sucked into that high school BS.
I sign on, make my money, sign off and live my real life.
7. Keep receipts: If you’re in the US, (I’m not aware of how income tax works in other countries) many things you use in shows are tax deductible.
Software, wardrobe, cosmetics, props, office furniture, electronics, etc. Really anything you use to make income can be written off. So save those receipts and consult with a tax professional.
Due to high demand I will be testing the waters with Skype shows tomorrow night,
Thursday July 10th between the hours of 7pm and 3am Eastern!
80 tokens per minute for offline tippers (full nude/toy show, no cam to cam) – If you tip me offline and not during my scheduled MFC time you get a discounted rate of 80 tokens per minute. 10 minute minimum for a priority spot, otherwise you’ll have to work with my schedule.
100 tokens per minute if you tip while I’m live on MyFreeCams (full nude/toy show, no cam to cam) – 10 minute minimum please
200 tokens per minute for a cam to cam session – I will view your cam and listen to your voice while entertaining you in whatever way you desire. Nudity, toys, conversation, whatever you like. 10 minute minimum please.
I will only be accepting MyFreeCams tokens as payment. Please do not offer me gift cards or any other method of payment.
First come first serve. Make sure you specify “Skype” in your tip note please. I will get back to you with my Skype name by 6pm Eastern tomorrow night, and we’ll decide on a time!
As always no anal, no fisting, no squirting, no poo poo pee pee stuff, no disrespect!
As much as I’d like to spend my summer outdoors, I am trying to fit in some camming here and there! My private life has kept me busy off cam, but I’ll certainly be on a few nights a week minimum.
I’m running another Fleshlight raffle on MyFreeCams that includes a Fleshlight Stamina Training Pack, along with the other Violet Doll goodies listed below. Tip 11 tokens to get your ticket. Buy as many as you like!
My top contributing member and highest single tip for July will win a special reward package too. Including a completely exclusive video and Polaroid photos that will be rewarded to the winner alone. NEVER to be seen or sold again.
Right now the highest tip is around 1975 and top member is around 4000. I will share screen caps from my MFC model stats as the month goes by. If you’re competing and want to keep it ninja style, (private user name) please contact me.
Meet my new baby Dogmeat, (yes his name is from Fallout 3). He’s an Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler, and about 9 weeks old. I’ve had him for only a week, and boy is he ever exhausting! The photo below is definitely deceiving. *^_^* Check out my tumblr to get a better idea of his personality, and make sure you follow me too!
The cats are getting used to his presence. They never run fom him, but don’t want to play with him yet. The ferrets are totally indifferent and afraid of nothing.
My other pets are the reason I chose to adopt a puppy. I always thought I’d go for an older dog in need, but I couldn’t risk bringing home an animal that would torment my cats or kill my ferrets. I’ve always been very interested in his breed, so when I found out this little guy needed a home as soon as possible I couldn’t resist.
Like most puppies he requires constant attention. An ACD ranks around number 10 in intelligence amongst other breeds. That means he gets bored very easily and needs a lot of play time. Being a herding dog, Dogmeat will need a lot of exercise as well. So I’m hoping we can go on long hikes together when he’s old enough.
So far he’s doing good with house breaking, he’s learning to fetch and knows to sit and come on command. He’s just a baby, so of course few accidents are acceptable. Luckily I’ve put off installing new floors in my home until he’s completely trained. ^_^
I’ve been keeping ridiculously busy lately. When I’m not a cam slave, I’m trying to keep up with every day life stuff, chore stuff, family stuff, and sleeping like a human being. I’ve been looking into summer classes, but I think I’m cutting it too close for enrollment. Might have to push it to fall semester, but I definitely need something productive to do besides camming or I’ll go insane.
My family suffered a devastating loss late February/early March. I’ve been pretty withdrawn ever since, but I’m slowly becoming more social again. For the past three days I’ve been tormented by insomnia, fatigue, and migraines. Otherwise life has been treating me extremely well. I owe you guys a decent blog update soon, but I’m super picky and obsessive. What I consider a “decent” entry usually takes me 4 hours to write. *(O_O；)*
So this is a big rambled update to give you guys notice about my upcoming time off. I’m taking a week long trip for my Birthday with my best friend to Miami and the Florida Keys. My top MFC members from March will be getting some private goodies while I’m away. Including exclusive naughty selfie text messages! Big thank you to Dan and Snive!
I’m still camming quite a bit until I leave, and I’m offering my top member and highest tipper of my Birthday month a custom video as well as a Skype show! If second and third place top members come close, I will offer them a Skype shows too! Right now a fairly private and generous fellah, (thank you!) who doesn’t like his MFC spendings put out there, is hanging high at 13,925 tokens! Can you beat it?
If you spoil me with a Gift Card to dress me up for my trip, I’ll make sure to share tons of sexy selfies of me on the beach and out and about. Maybe even a private gallery for MFC users who send me a gift card of $50 or more. This all needs to come together within a couple of weeks or less unfortunately, because I’m leaving on April 22nd. Don’t forget to factor in shipping time.
Everything is booked, I just need new luggage, a little spending money, and warm weather wardrobe. Woo hoo!! This is going to be the first real vacation I’ve had outside of my home state in years. We’ve had a tough winter here, so I’m looking forward to the sunshine. This wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for my special fans who contribute tips, love, support and fun in private. Love you guys!
