Taylor R - videos #2

But how many informative videos did she? I only remember the lion dance one (which I didn't watch because it sounded cringey from what people said about it here) and the one with the history on eyebrows/microblading (which was an utterly boring video I skipped through it).

Unless she did more and I don't recall, then sorry.

A niche takes time to built, you can't really judge whether or not it's going to take off based on like a handful of video's imo.

 

On a sidenote wasn't she talking about starting like a business or something?  Now that could be interesting to follow, if she actually goes through with it.

She makes 'informative' videos so boring, she doesnt show anything at all, just focuses on herself, no wonder nobody watchs it.

She did lion dance, 10 episodes with foodie series on local HK food, Cantonese marriage traditions and trying on Cantonese wedding gear, last year she did CNY taboos... she did few of them, but she never seemed to get a lot of views comparing to the other videos. And since to me she seems desperate to go viral (that's why we get nose hair extensions videos etc.) I think she will eventually stop doing these at all. But I may be wrong, I would actually be happy if she proved me wrong as I like these videos of her ^_^

As for the business - I wouldn't be surprised if it was all Ew-sans idea, and she just hops on the wagon as 'her business' so she can keep the image of hardworking and ambitious girl she tries to pose. He will just use her YT fame as a platform to expand his business, and she gets the glory of 'not being only trophy wife, but also doing soooooo many things and she's a real business woman'.

the thing is - does she really want to change? or is she happy with viral videos more than informative ones?

over the years I've seen her fame hunger and hopping on trends to help her be even more popular. 
I actually think she did the informative videos to see if this will be her 'niche' of which Ew-san keeps talking about (not many white foreigners in Hong Kong do actual informative videos, most of it is lifestyle only), but the niche didn't go as viral as she expected it to be so she will eventually dump it, just like everything else (being doll, being vegan, actually sticking to posting schedule, change of website - I heard about like two years ago?). I lost hope for this girl, especially after she defended pedo-san, adding the Kardashian obsession to this only proves all she wants is lavish lifestyle and being famous with very little effort. But that's just my opinion :P

 

i know what you mean -it's obvious she wants the lavish life with little effort, and this was obvious since she was living in Japan and started ditching the dolly look and trying to adopt the Trashians' [sorry i really dislike them] looks and products and all. But you have to admit, a niche business does take a bit of time to grow - if say 100% of her viewers watch her just for her lifestyle, it would be hard to make them interested in those informative videos. on top of that, weird or funny videos have a much higher chance of going viral, compared to cultural videos.  maybe she should try her hand at a commedy channel xD cringiness can be funny...? at times...?imho...  

i also think the business idea was ew-san's idea, and im suspecting he's coaching her on how to go about it and stuff.

I totally agree with the fact it takes time to build out the audience, especially for non-popular topics, even raising awareness of such takes awful lot of time, I just don't think she has patience - if it doesn't get viral or make her more popular she just ditches it :D

Talking about informative videos, as a general question: did you ever hear Taylor say something smart? Like, something that made you think "I didn't know that" or "I never thought about it from this perspective" ??

(We all know she isn't the brightest but really she never "taught" me anything lol)

Tbh she made a really cool video about nutrition and eating healthy that I think back on a lot (like these were her Japan days, not the sponsored app bs stuff); but that was the only time.

I don't particulary think that Taylor is the most suitable to make informative videos since she's not that good at research quality information and also believes in almost everything disguised as science, also she can't make that kind of videos interesting (imo). I really prefered her lifestyle, cooking and diy videos she did at the good old times.

'I really liked the little "history of eyebrows" in the microblading video. It wasn´t maybe super accurate and ou can see the influence by Safiya but I did enjoy it, or didn´t know before

I think the real problem is she built her channel up on those " show off" "viral" "fame hungry" videos. For example her all in Japanese kawaii room tour, modelling vlogs, living doll makeup hair, workouts,  popular Vocaloid dance along videos, mysterious rich boyfriend and so on. So no one cares about those random other "informative" videos.

I feel like a lot of Taylor's Chinese related content comes off as...exploitative? That's not really the right word but it's just kind of obvious she's disinterested in the topics and is just doing them to show off that she's a white person living in another country. For example, she doesn't try to learn the language or live the lifestyle. Everything around her is Westernized and to her comfort, which makes it more expensive. 

I wish that she did videos of topics she was genuinely interested in. All these "cultural" videos just show her face non-stop and have no real appreciation for what she's doing.
