He simply burned out, doing this business for almost 10 years.
Swedish blogger Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, known as PewDiePie, is the creator of the YouTube channel of the same name, who overcame 100 million subscribers this August.
One of the brightest stars of YouTube announced the termination of its activities. More precisely, Felix Chelberg said that he was going to take a break from YouTube, starting in 2020 (the channel was founded in April 2010).
The blogger did not indicate any time limits, saying that he would publish a more detailed explanation for this later. However, in his address, he made it clear that he had simply burned out, having been engaged in this business for almost 10 years.
“I feel very tired,” he said. In making his statement, PewDiePie used the new YouTube rules for videos that contain threats, insults, and harassment as a discussion topic. The blogger added that he would like to think about something other than YouTube, “for the first time in 10 years.”
Authors of content on YouTube are constantly forced to release interesting new videos in order to prevent the leakage of viewers, and therefore we are often not talking about relaxation.
However, PewDiePie now has over 100 million subscribers, and he, as they say, can afford it. The question is whether he will return to YouTube or, like many bloggers with millionaire channels, he will simply go down in history, tired of this race.
