@theavidhorizon @jnv a lot of YouTubers are having to chase the algorthim to make money to keep the cycle going, there are a very very very few golden ones like hbomberguy and contrapoints who are able to spend more time working on their videos and delivering one great hit a year that is ultra high quality.

Some of the ones I've seen they started out in love, had a good time as a job, then it turned into a nightmare to keep floating. That I understand, when you get no joy you move on, especially if you don't have any security. Others have managed to get enough subscribers who are able to contribute financially to be able to pivot out of quantity in to quality. I imagine though it might get worse now that Google is trying to squeeze every penny out of their products to make line go up
