YouTuber's make HOW much?!

And now looking at all of this, I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep!

YouTuber's make HOW much?!

There are many false beliefs about the realm of Youtube and what a Youtuber really is. Since 2012 there has been an increase in YouTubers and content being made. A YouTuber is someone who owns a YouTube channel and posts multiple videos for their subscribers to watch, usually on a regular basis. Many people believe that YouTube is pretty much a hobby and that you can get paid for it but not enough to make a living, that it is more of a payment where you can maybe treat yourself to a fancy dinner or maybe even pay your rent. This is false. There also another belief that just from having millions of subscribers that that YouTuber is automatically getting millions of dollars from it and is an instant millionaire, this is also false ...sorta.

Youtube has seen an abundance of advertisers and chose to help creators monetize their videos around 2011. The Youtube Creator or YouTuber would get the option of whether they would run ads on their videos if they chose to they would get a percentage of how much money the advertisement was worth. Although that sounds like a good easy game plan to make some money it is not as easy as you may think. To get paid for that advertisement in your video the viewer would have to watch it all the way through or click on it showing that they engaged with the advertisement, most people do NOT do this. Since that is the case the rough estimate a YouTuber makes from a video is about 2 dollars per 1000 views. That is not a lot at all. However, if a video goes viral you could make a good chunk of change as much as about 2000$ off of that one video.

Creators like PewDiePie, Dude Perfect and, of course, Logan Paul try to make the most of these numbers. Logan Paul made daily vlogs for a while and almost all of them went viral usually even more than that about 4 million or more with one of his most popular videos reaching over 100 million and counting so it is safe to say he has made more money this month than your whole family probably makes annually.

YouTubers usually don't stick to just YouTube to make their money, the creators usually make more money off of brand deals. When people get a huge following on Youtube which can be as high as 10,000 then brands start hitting them up for deals, the bigger your following the much higher you can get paid. Most YouTubers make more money for brands on top of the ad revenue they get from YouTube to get big bucks. Most YouTubers also have a Twitter and Instagram which also has a lot of followers which increases their value to companies wanting to advertise through them. On top of that, a lot of YouTubers even have side hustles like selling their own merchandise like shirts, shorts, even sunglasses. If they a creator has just one million subscribers and can get just 5% of their following to be a 10 dollar T-shirt then they just made 500,000$.

So now that you know all of this it is easy to say yes a lot of these YouTubers are millionaires. Jake Paul makes roughly 32,000$ every day and that number is even about a year old so he probably makes much more. And now looking at all of this I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep!

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
