I do remember that. And by the looks of it, if that's what they do, they're getting paid a lot more. Because they're splurging a lot more. So they're spending money has greatly increased. So they spend their spending money and then run out of it if this is what they indeed still do.
But recently (judging by the blogs and by twitter), if we go by their purchases, they're making pretty decent money. The car, new Apple laptop, Beats headphones, professional photographer (and it seems like they went with a nice legit one as well), new Gopro, other gifts for Oscar, trips to California, trip to Disney with a stay on site at Disney, regular trips to Starbucks, constant shopping on Amazon by K, and all sorts of other shopping in general. I'd say their budgets have certainly increased by a lot. They spend like they have a 6 figure job.
Hell, it's like watching myself but my husband went to school for two degrees and works as an electrical engineer. Works a 50+ hour a week job some weeks. Sure the money is nice but he worked his ass off and still does to get where he is. It's so weird to see these young youtubers that have absolutely zero outside of youtube. A lot of the older youtubers actually have careers and/or degrees outside of youtube. I can respect that. I can't respect youtube as the only thing on your serious resume. You think you've joined the ranks of hard working individuals because you're paid a high salary but it's NOT the same.
And this going back and forth between "it's not a job!" and "it's our job" to suit their argument or situation is so beyond stupid. It's your job. Period. End of story. You get paid for it. You do nothing else. You made a whole COTD about how "how is this NOT a job....it's totally a job!!!" so quit saying it's not a job whenever someone tells you to quit being lazy at your job.
