vlogging and youtube videos are different that the rest of the entertainment industry but I seriously doubt it. I was in the music business for several years and have a number of good friends and family
members that are professional musicians.
I stand by my statement, there are thousands of fantastic musicians out there working their butts off and making great music that are barely getting by. I promoted a band in Atlanta years ago that were all great musicians, did all their own, original music, were innovative but still accessible and marketable. Just couldn't get a break and they finally broke up and went their separate ways. That is just one example of many that I personally know of.
To be successful IE make good money in anything that involves entertainment be it music, acting, blogging or vlogging takes talent, hard work, good marketing
and luck. Unfortunately sometimes marketing
and luck are bigger factors than talent as is well demonstrated by what one hears on the radio
these days. Putting out a good product is not a guarantee of success.
