Camden chewed at waffle cone

Camden chewed at waffle cone and was assault with a horrible image of him arriving at a door, setting down his suitcase to knock at the door.
“Camden! My boy, have you returned?” Mom would say.
“Yes, Mother,” Camden would shake his head miserably. “I have realized the error of my ways. Like Icarus, I have flown too close to the sun. My empire has been reduced to ash. I will now go back to college and get a real job. You were right all along. What a fool I was. I must inquire, is my old room still available?”
“Of course, Cam Bam,” Mom said with honey in her voice. “I have your racecar bed all made up.”

  1. YouTube isn’t a real job: content creators on this platform don’t have to work 9-5 + overtime, they don’t have a boss or clients to report to, and they don’t get health insurance, 401(k) or any other benefits. YouTube is a website that provides a free service to upload videos and was never intended to become anyone’s primary source of income or main career path, so anyone doing it full-time is making it at their own risk since there aren’t any guarantees regarding how to grow a channel. 

    Many YouTubers are misinforming their audiences, pretending to run a small business while relying on charity donations from them (via Join, Patreon, etc.) in order to survive. 

    Real businesses don’t exist or survive from receiving handouts and responsible adults in the real world when starting a business don’t go around asking for money to strangers on the street or the internet. Entrepreneurs invest on themselves with their own money, if not they get a loan from a bank, or borrow money from investors, family or friends, in order to later return it. If every content creator who received donations showed proof of how they’re spending the money given to improve their channels and also if the money people invested on them had some financial return after time (as in the stock market) or received a tangible product in return (as in exchanging money for purchasing goods) that would be a fair deal for both creators and viewers who pay for a membership. As is, Patreon is currently used by YouTubers like a charity, and that’s just wrong and unsustainable in the long run.

    Any content creator on YouTube who is unable to sustain their channel via views, viewer interaction, ad revenue and/or corporate sponsorships alone, should make videos as a side hobby and have a real full-time job to pay for all their expenses and not ask for subscribers to do that for them. It’s a matter of principle and is morally wrong to ask for viewers to pay for their personal bills.

    I believe Digital Foundry is already payed by Eurogamer, and in addition they makes extra money from ad revenue on YouTube which is perfectly fine, so they shouldn’t need to e-beg viewers online. They choose to do it because unfortunately YouTubers like DSP contributed to standardize e-begging on this platform and conveniently the vast majority of creators (many who were once against this awful practice) slowly adopted this system, and many unaware viewers started to accept this repugnant behavior as normal.

    All channels that have Patreon, Join, PayPal, SubscribeStar, Superchat, Bitcoin, and PO Box options available are on YouTube for the exact same reason: to ask for money and take advantage of some of their subscribers who aren’t aware of their deceiving and manipulative methods. Viewer interaction for all e-beggars is just a facade. I’m not going to argue if creating videos is hard work or not, that’s relevant to each type and would need to be analyzed individually. Regarding donations, the majority of people who are giving their hard earned money or white knighting for internet strangers are lonely and/or looking for validation, and YouTubers are fully aware of this and taking advantage of them. Most viewers fail to realize that they’re already contributing to the channel’s growth by watching, subscribing, commenting, and sharing. There are plenty of content creators on YouTube who produce quality content and do not depend on Patreon, Join or any other deceiving methods in order to survive. JonTronShow, Scott the Woz, GTV Japan, The Crow Continuum, Kenz Games Collection, AfroGamerDude, Gaming Off the Grid, and Second Opinion Games, are just a few examples of e-begging free gaming channels. Check them out if you don’t believe me.
