Ryan Kaji, At 8 Years Old, He Is YouTube's Highest Earner In 2019

Last Update: December 23, 2019

OK, so how is it possible that this 8-year-old boy has beaten all Youtubers to be named the highest earner at only 8 yeas old? and before we go any further may I also mention that the second highest earner on YouTube in 2019 is a 5-year-old girl from Russia.

I woke up this morning and as I was having my morning cup of tea, to try and wake my brain up, as I was scanning through the current affairs, like I always do in the mornings, I was woken up very suddenly by an article on CNN website about the Forbes list of the highest earners on YouTube.

I Think The Young People And Even The Older Ones Are Not Watching The News These Days

OH, and just to get off the topic a bit did you know that most Millennials don't read the news, or watch it on TV? we were just talking to some of our young family members the other day, and we got talking about the current situation in the world and we were shocked to find out that our young people don't know what is going on around them.

I think the technology has also contributed to this problem, the fact that there is so much information out there, does not really help at all because although our young and older people are constantly on their devices, they are not necessarily checking up on what is going on in the world.

And even if they watch TV, they just stream what they want to see. Its not like in the old times when you could watch TV, and you had breaks in between programs where they brought the news. These days, you can just watch movies and other programs without watching news at all.

Even Though The News Is Depressing Its Wise To Know What Is Happening Around Us

OK, I know that the news is mostly depressing but, its good to know what is happening in the world around you. Burying the head in the sand like an ostrich is not gonna make it go away.

For example where I live we have a young neighbour and she does not watch the news at all, we were warned about strong winds that were heading our way, so I called her and asked her if she has prepared for the strong winds, she did not know what I was talking about.

By the time I called her I had moved the things that needed to be moved, and she had done nothing, I told her its wise to watch the news now and then to which she replied that she never watches the news because its depressing.

OK, rant over.

Let's Get Back To Our YouTube Story

The title of the highest earner on YouTube goes to Ryan Kaji an 8-year-old boy who reviews toys on YouTube. According to the article, Ryan has over 22million subscribers on his YouTube Channel. And he managed to make a staggering $26million in 2019( I need an emoji)

Forbes estimates that between June 2018 and June 2019, the top ten earners on YouTube made a total of $162 million.

There is a big pie online and I am determined to have a piece of it, can you imagine little kids making all that money, its mind blowing.

Anyway, let me get back to my website, I got lots to do and very little time. The holiday season is very difficult to get things done on our websites because there are so many things to get done at home.

So for those of you who celebrate, happy holidays, for those who don't, I send you best wishes for the new year and lots of success in your businesses.

Thank you for your time.

Rose.

Most millennials will be living in their parent's basement their whole lives. No social skills and cannot put their phones down even to eat. They can name all of the Kardashians but do not know who is the vice-president. Glad I moved to Ukraine to get away from such losers.

You share a good story on YouTube earners that opens my mind wide open on the possibilities that lie out there. I believe there is a share for us for the taking. We just need to know how get it.
Thank you for sharing and enjoy what is left of the festive holidays.

Ridiculously amazing, 8 years old and 5 years old, some very clever parents spotted an opportunity and shook it by the throat, I’m wondering if I can create something amazing, with my talking Westie who is a very elderly 14 year old dog... 🧐

I just bumbled through my first video creation. I am in awe that little kids can get on youtube and make so much money! Amazing! Certainly gives us an example to follow.

Since reading the article, I have watched a couple of his videos and there is nothing special about the videos. They appear to be just simply made.

Amazing about those top earners, Rose, and a bit sad a bout the state of the millennial generation, and if something doesn't change it will be even worse for their children!
