PewDiePie Making 7 million+ on YouTube in 2014 is okay with me.

PewDiePie is all over the news because he made 7 million in 2014 on YouTube making videos of himself playing and reacting to computer games. 

For an hour last night I watched a few of his videos (current, past, early ones, etc) and his below response to all the money that he posted yesterday. Lots of folks are hating on him.

After taking a look at his work, here's why I'm not a hater.
  • He works really hard
  • He gave a million to charity.
  • He's good, and knows his tools
  • He gets entertainment
Basically, his passion intersected with a new technology (YouTube with ad money)
