The holidays can be a difficult time for content creators. On platforms like YouTube and Twitch, the demand for content is insatiable and intense, and many creators will know the feeling of seeing their sub counts drop after even a short break.
We should stress that your mental health comes first and your true fans will stick around - that's a unanimous point from our community and beyond in our guide to managing the creator lifestyle. But it's still possible to mitigate the impact of stepping away for a bit, and we're looking for your tips on how.
How do you manage your channels over Christmas, or indeed any holiday, or even just take a few days off? How do you communicate the break with your fans? Do you make content in advance, or stretch it over a longer schedule, or do lower-effort stuff like highlight reels?
Whether by these tactics or any other tips you'd like to share, tell us how creators can switch off and rest while minimising the impact on what they've built. We're looking for decently chunky tips - at least 100 words or 60 seconds of video. The eight best submissions will receive $8 apiece!
