These days people are no longer limited to traditional jobs. People can do jobs on the internet that could potentially make them millions. PewDiePie is a name that many are familiar with, and he has blazed a trail.
According to YouTube, PewDiePie has hit 100 million subscribers. This makes him the first individual YouTuber to hit that milestone. This has to be said because there was a bit of a “fight” between PewDiePie’s subscribers and YouTube channel T-Series.
T-Series is a YouTube channel that specializes in Indian music. It currently has 109 million subscribers which is more than PewDIePie, but as far as individual YouTubers are concerned, PewDiePie is the first to hit 100 million subscribers. Nice.
Despite hitting 100 million subscribers, PewDiePie is only #9 on Forbes’ highest-paid YouTubers, not #1. It was estimated that he earned $15.5 million in 2018. The #1 position actually goes to a 7-year old who reviews toys who earned $22 million in 2018. It’s pretty amazing that a kid of that age can make that kind of money on youtube or otherwise. So PewDiePie has to catch up with that kid before he can claim the title of the highest paid Youtuber.
Still, congratulations are in order. It pays to make videos these days.
