If YouTubers feeling burn-out made the changes they wanted to make, without telling anyone they were going to do it, the vast majority of their users probably wouldn't even notice.
Most peoples YouTube subscriptions feed is full of way more videos than they actually watch anyway.

Not saying there's anything wrong with making a video about it, I just think they care a lot more about it than their users do.


If you have a normal job you get feedback from your boss about your performance. If you do YouTube you get money from google but that has little relationship to how your users feel about your content.
I bet it's kind of like if you had a boss who stood over your desk all day looking directly at you but never saying a word.
You'd keep working harder and harder until burnout.

100% True.

Yup, I see no real upside in making such a video, apart from your own mental health.

I've seen a ton of these videos, and I get it, but I'm also like:

The sympathy vote... its basic human psychology and it works.

I have thought about it. A cry video about the algorithm being unfair and how its the evil Internet keeping me from fame!

As my wife says: "If you want to go viral, maybe you should make some interesting videos :)"

I do not mean to be hard or mean here,
Since he is asking where does he go from there? New direction?  (I did not actually watch his video).

I don't know? How about selling off the excess equipment? and I don't know like try doing the business and get some assignments?  Looks like he may have enough excess equipment that could fund a year or two of doing so.

He's done two more videos since them, month or two apart, same format really, so still going.
