I follow a lot of Youtube channels. One disturbing trend I've noticed is the number of them that have devolved to nothing but e-begger sites. All they do is cry for donations. They could be plugging a Patreon account, Go Fund Me, Kickstarter, or any number of other donation schemes.
I'm not against sites asking for money. What bothers me is the number of channels on which all they do is ask for money. They provide little, if any, actual content. Some channels started out providing information or entertainment, but now do nothing but beg. Often they have some amazing plan for the future -a future that is always in the future.
Some people really earn their on-line income. High production values take time and money. It's not uncommon for Youtube channels to invest thousands of dollars on computer and video equipment. They do a lot of work for the income they receive.
There are channels out there that have the same background and a talking head. Week after week, it's some person doing nothing but begging. I suppose it takes a certain amount of skill to fleece people day in day out, but I'm not going to support it.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
