Shay’s break isn’t kicking in right away. Instead, he plans to post daily vlogs over the next five months, returning to a busy schedule after previously dialing down the number of vlogs he produced per week. By ramping up his operation, he hopes to return to the top of the vlogging game, alongside current standard-bearers like Casey Neistat and Roman Atwood.

Shay explains. “I need to smell the roses a bit.”

Shay  announced their news in a rambling, stream-of-consciousness vlog posted to the Shaytards channel on September 28th. “I need a year off,” Shay explains. “I need to smell the roses a bit.” He hopes that, by taking a year off, he can give himself, his wife, and his kids more time away from the camera. “I want to be a normal family that doesn’t have this worldwide audience,” he said. “I want to know what it’s like to not be a YouTuber.”

While Shay will take a break, other members of his family will remain active. Katilette, for example, will continue to co-host the parenting channel
