The video is about why many YouTubers are going on hiatus or stopping, and I really agree with its view on things.
I wanted to question one base premise though - in the video is a moment where it's casually said that "you have to keep posting so people don't forget you in a month". But is that true?
Observing my own consuming habits, I don't think so. I follow youtubers who post once every 2 or 6 months and I always want to immediately watch it and I keep checking if there is a new post. I follow some creators who stop posting and after a year I check back if maybe they came back. When youtubers say "sorry for not posting in such a long time", I never felt like it's been a long time.
I think the algorithm gets unhappier than the audience. When did we measure how often someone wants to watch something? Sometimes I binge watch videos, sometimes I get sick of the same creator every week. Am I the only one?
