First, let me start by saying that I do think that YouTube is a very rewarding career. But at the same time, it's really kind of stupid. All you're doing is putting yourself in front of a camera, or recording clips and playing sophisticated forms of exhibitionism. I mean, you probably went out to get some groceries. Unless you're just rich and can pay people to do that. (I wish I could) But when you went, wasn't there someone to assist you during checkout? Why can't that person get the praise that a YouTuber gets?
You're probably thinking to yourself that those jobs require little or no effort at all. And you're somewhat right, because they don't. But so doesn't being a YouTuber, since it's incredibly stressful because the trends are always changing. You have to keep up with what's going on with the drama. Oh the drama, I'm about to go off topic by the way. So I think you should probably just stop reading this.
In all seriousness though, YouTubing isn't that bad of a gig. I mean, even if you don't get any views like me at least you learn a thing or two about marketing. Because hey, what's the point of investing into $500 Canon cameras from Japan or purchasing $600 adobe memberships so you can actually rise above your competition only to find out the girl with terrible ideas but lots of Facebook friends is doing it better than you. You have to be able to automate and be able to put those programs into good use. You see, because nobody really likes a video that's too scripted. It sounds cool, but it has to be natural as well.
It's kinda like music videos. How many music videos have you seen that basically do the same thing as the previous one thousand and ones before it? Most people are going to think (citation needed) "hey this guy is just trying to get views" or "this person is pretentious" but the reality of what most bottom feeders (oh snap son___)
The problem most bottom feeders don't realize is that it's the whole point of YouTube. Lmao, you're in it for the views or you're just straight up lying. You see humans have this natural desire called fitting in. It's the unfortunate fact of life that you need somebody looking at you. I don't know about you but I'd rather have three hundred people call me stupid in the comments section than have nobody saying anything at all.
So going back to my example about working in clerical services or retail. I say this because I used to work in that type of job, and you know I'm going to go back. I have to, I live with my only mother and need numbers to feed myself. I used to think about doing a bunch of ideas before we got to this point, but none of that ultimately matters. And so, hopefully the moment someone reads this I'll be able to make enough to quit.
But the day will come, singing off -
