Well at least Grace (from Texan in Tokyo) did get some shit done. She sold 3 (shitty) comics, raised a decent amount on patreon, and blogged semi-regularly. Their vids required more planning too, especially since a lot of their videos were listicle style Q&As... Taylor honestly doesnt really do shit. Her biggest accomplishment every day is getting out of bed and maybe shitting out a hastily unplanned video for her fans. As for people that DO plan videos---Simon & Martina. YES, they do have Dan their videographer, (and likely dont edit their videos on their own) BUT they do plan their content and it doesnt feel like such a waste of time.
RE: Elbow-san reveal So did anyone catch the SHADE Rachel left on Sharla's "Actually My Fiance Is From" video? Previously Rachel had stated in another video that she found Taylor to be "really beautiful" after meeting her for the Halloween party. I wonder if this is why Taylor has been acting a bit snarky-- must have been a HUGE blow to her ego??
LMAO YAAAS CHRIS! GO IN on that bitch! It's funny because even though Taylor met so many "main stay" Jvloggers at the Halloween party, NONE have collaborated with her besides Sharla... I really think Taylor came off as annoying/prissy and didnt vibe with the likes of Simon/Martina, Rachel/Jun, ChrisAbroad, et al. OR they could also resent Taylor for waltzing into the jvlog scene like a princess and gaining a sub following without any valuable content. Literally the only reason Taylor is famous is because she has the money to show off luxury things like expensive houses/aps, spa days, and material possessions.
I'm in the camp that wants Taylor to stop trying to be relatable and just EMBRACE the fact that she has some serious coin. Show us LUXE, bitch! She looks up to (and wants to mimic) the Khardashians, but they sure as hell are not relatable. I personally think Taylor is currently going through a crisis in her life. I would question myself if I had a sugar daddy living in a foreign country with no skill sets beyond doing wifely duties. She must be asking herself: Do I want to be with this Asian boyfriend that owns me through his money? Is it okay to have "friends"/business associates that jvlog knowing that they are leaving soon (Kim, Sharla etc) and thus leaving me without any real friends?If I leave elbow-san how can I sustain myself? I'm getting too old to model and have no skillsets and do NOT want a job! "muh luxe!!!"I havent learned Japanese in 2 years of living in japan...HALP! Why is it that I need all these online strangers to feel good about myself and give my life meaning? What's gonna happen in a few years when I'm 35-- children?I think Taylor needs to WAKE UP and start getting her life together and start thinking longer-term. Personally, I think she's REALLY unhappy and trying to mask it with all the materialistic bullshit she does in her videos.
Her farewell video has over 1M views now....looks like shes raking in the money still. Her other "controversial" video that she had to re-edit and re-upload is at 1.7M view. Hope that the money is going towards their children funds!
Yep! I agree. They dont have comparable views/methodology BUT with the amount of videos Taylor pushes out + 400K subscribers+ taking into account the compounding of views her videos receive by just existing over time = we can surmise that she gets decent revenue from YouTube (at least more than we initially thought). Even if she gets $100 a day thats $3K a month which is more than enough to cover any shopping she does (since elbow-san pays for rent and other things). A base number I've seen floating around is that YouTube pays you $2-$3 per 1,000 views on average.
At least it provides a bit of a clearer picture than social blade (where the max/min are ridiculous).
