YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg manages to upload videos on a near-daily basis – which has him humorously skeptical of other YouTubers’ burnout in the space.

PewDiePie commented on the issue during an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on March 16, where he poked fun at other creators’ exhaustion due to creating content.

“You know how all these other YouTubers go, ‘Oh guys, I’ve been making videos for three years every single day, boo hoo!’” he joked.

He went on to note that he has been uploading videos for over eight years and ten months – 3,244 days, in fact.

“Eight years!” he continued. “I don’t take breaks!”

PewDiePie, Twitter / TubefilterPewDiePie has been uploading videos to YouTube for over eight years and ten months – 3,244 days, in fact, marking a major milestone for the YouTube king.

Although he was joking, this isn’t the first time PewDiePie has been critical of creator burnout – he likewise took shots at popular YouTuber Lilly Singh in late 2018, after she announced a hiatus to look after her mental health.

“I’m getting a little annoyed by it,” he said of the issue. “I’m not gonna lie. It’s like, shut up. Shut up, children. Just take a break.”

He went on to speculate that Singh was taking a break to draw attention to her channel, and questioned if she were happy with the content she was making at the time.

However, Felix also advised creators faced with burnout to step away from the platform – even if they were worried about losing subscribers due to a lack of activity.

PewDiePie is currently in the midst of a subscriber battle with Bollywood label T-Series, and was even briefly overtaken by the channel.

Thanks to his loyal fanbase, the YouTuber has managed to pull ahead for nearly six months – and has reached a whopping 89 million subscribers in the process.

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
