On YouTuber Retirement

From vlogbrothers.

I think the thing that makes this kind of creation so special is that it is being done in collaboration with an audience. I think when TV shows feel that way, it feels like a betrayal when they get cancelled. But in that situaiton, some media executive can be blamed.

Meanwhile, a creator saying "Look, we have been doing this together for a long time and it has been amazing, but I want to take a break" is a big deal. We have to have structures that allow it. I want to do this, but I do not want to do it after I stop wanting to do it, y’know?
