He and his dad are very close. He is very supportive of his content creation and sometimes appears in his videos. He also has a sister. They have dogs named Dobby and Shadow, a cat named Nora, a leopard gecko, and several chickens.
When he was in middle school, Blooprint got into watching Minecraft YouTube videos and then later survival video gaming content. He discovered Rust through the YouTuber PartiallyRoyal and thought that it looked interesting. His sister has given him Rust as a present quite a while before that, but he hadn’t enjoyed the experience because he had gone on a Battle Royale server. The various Rust content creators that he had gone on to watch inspired him to give it a second shot in early 2016. This was around the time that ladder hatches were introduced to the game. He instantly fell in in love and has been maining it ever since. He does still play other side games, though. Prior to Rust, his main games were Minecraft, CS:GO and ARK.
He had made enough money from content creation to buy himself a house a few days before graduating from high school in June 2021. He has been creating content fulltime since then.
He initially began uploading Minecraft content to his ‘DeathChimp’ YouTube channel in 2014, specializing in Minecraft Survival Game content. He uploaded his first RUST video to YouTube for fun in August 2016. He never expected it to take off, but his second video went viral, quickly gaining over 50,000 views, so he ran with it. He later changed the channel name to ‘Blooprint’ and private his earlier content.
As he was still in high school at the time, he would do his homework at school so that he could concentrate on content creation when he got home in order to ensure that he maintained his grades.
His language isn’t clean.
Blooprint’s Twitch chat bot puts his sub count at over 1,500. As is viewership generally hits over 2,500, this should garner him at least $5,250 USD per month, excluding additional income from tiered subscriptions, merchandise sales, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements and sponsorships.
Sporadic, as his main focus is his YouTube channel.
[If you want to improve in Rust,] there’s two things. One is a lot of practice and just continue and they’ll really learn the game and just getting immersed in really how to play, all the mistakes that you make, that’s how you really learn. But another thing that really is important is [to] watch other YouTubers. If you just simply watch somebody play, you learn a lot.
