Thank you for saying what needed to be said about the vanity and banality of these "YouTube stars".

I do! I don't find it boring.  It's a way for me to enjoy what being on the road is like since I'm not actually on the road just yet.  Big Grin  I find a lot of their personalities entertaining and I love seeing what daily life on the road is like.  It inspires me and gives me ideas.  No need to bash what others enjoy... just change the channel to something you find interesting  Wink

I’m with you on that....I curious how being on the road affects them, what the scenery looks like, how their rig is set up and what rig they chose and how it’s working for them, etc...

Eventually, I move on once I’m not learning anymore and find the next mentor.

I have had a look and did not find it interesting. No further judgments or need to make sense of motivations behind the videos. If it is not harming anyone and gets them through the day, the behaviours of others belongs to them.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

JHey It is interesting to read all the different viewpoints. Thanks for sharing yours.

I am not by any stretch a Youtube star nor do I aspire to be. However, I do enjoy making videos, the creative process and sharing my stories, thoughts and adventures.

Making vids that I would like to watch is my endgame. This is not easy nor has it earned me a rabid following. I am OK with that because I make them for myself and for the folks who get it.

My channel is monetized. I don’t mind making a few bucks for my creative efforts and see nothing wrong with that.

If someone wants to help support my efforts they can purchase some of my art. In my opinion it’s a win-win.

As for what I personally watch on you tube, It runs from music vids to tutorials and how to’s.  I also watch vloggers who can tell an interesting story or keep me watching by way of unique editing techniques.

Having said all that, I too have grown tired of the narcissism and played out internet marketing strategies that now pervades social media.

Recently, I have pulled the plug on my own efforts to build a fan base using strategies learned in books and online courses alongside everyone else who dreams of making a living by way of the web.

Nowadays, I am striving to create original content on my own terms and focus selling my art face to face in the real world. This is where I have seen real results with meaningful interactions.

Following step by step modules laid out by self proclaimed marketing gurus did not yield worthwhile results for me. However, your mileage may vary.

If you want to check my vids out, my channel it can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/chongolio

to each his own ... i personally like her videos. It only takes a few minutes out of my life, love seeing where she camps, enjoy her happiness and zest for life and have mad respect for anyone who leaves the human rat race to find themself and enjoy life

i give a few dollars a month to her fund, doesn't hurt my lifestyle a bit but helps her live her dream.
I was so happy she was able to update her rig and continue her journey in life

AND NO I WILL NOT GIVE TO YOUR FUND

I can understand everyone's perspective and opinion.
It's interesting seeing where they are coming from and a reflection of where they are in life at this moment.

Love, like, dislike, enjoy, learning, been there done that, exploring, impatient, knowledge, can relate, indifferent, entertained or not. Positive or negative. All coming from motives, interests and state of mind resulting in different impacts.
This is what makes the world an interesting place.
Choices.
Coexist.

Are we still talking about YouTube videos? 

Really?

I think he’s talking about those walking the walk for all to see, the highs and the lows, in the videos versus the peanut gallery criticizing from their comfy armchairs.
