Are You Helping Out Your Favourite Channels? Patreon, Perhaps?
I just have to re-think some very, very basic concepts with regards to offering your channel via a myriad of "voluntary contributions" such as with PATREON or by patronizing the sponsors of your favourite YouTube show creators.
I don't think that there is something inherently wrong with giving your favourite YouTube: "rising star," "creator to watch," "hot new trending show" or "Y-T superstar of the future" a "hand" in surviving the lean times for a beginning creator of content, but should it be expected, and should a non-paid supporter/subscriber get less than the creator's best content, because the best is reserved only for those who pay the creator for their services?
As taxing as it might be to produce an original show, week, after week, and year after year, do not all careers require that to become a master at one's avocation, sacrifice is almost essential? Ask a physician that question, who spent a long spell of medical training and educating, after a difficult B.S. degree was earned at a university, and then has to deal with the horrors of an Internship, both in hours and wages, just for the chance to become a Resident, for a few years more, where pay is still miserable and hours are irregular, still, at best. Talk about survival skills, on one's own!! Wow!!
The above labour is indeed "suffered through" because of the bigger dream, and because an egi can sometimes "cloud" one's learning curve.
Maybe, if YouTube could pay its newer creators, who DO have exceptional levels of support, versus 85% of other newer creators, then the exceptional creator, WHO WILL SURVIVE ULTIMATELY BECAUSE OF THEIR QUALITY AND ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING, can ghet a "paycheck" sooner, and that advertisers and PATREON, etc. won't have to be relied upon to act as bolsters to a beginner YouTube creators' desperate source of eraly career survival? Maybe, you think? Just a thought! Enjoy the show, and a boatload of thanks for your subscriptions, views, likes, shares, and comments! YOU are who make this Y-T show very good, and hopefully someday, among those that are the greatest ever imagineeered, created, and loved! Peace! Paul.
