They all watched the same video on how you could make $$$$$$ a year with vlogging and instagram and becoming 'influncers' and getting free stuff by spamming your links everywhere to get those very important clicks without actually participating in the forums you spam. It requires doing outrageous stuff and creating lots of drama to keep your viewers "engaged" or something.

It's now gone meta -- there's a guy calling himself "vlogger puppets" making fun of them.

Nothing to see here, basically.

Wearing skimpy outfits helps the subscriber numbers too, at least in the sailing vlogs.

The DIY approach fits naturally with linkbaiting.

It also fits in with people who are addicted to shopping on Amazon.

The DIY approach tells people they are going to save a fortune. Thus it becomes the enabler of ego-worshipping over-improvers.

As a newbie 'vlogger' I decided to create something my grand kids could find after I'm gone. I don't sell stickers, could care less about instagram and my descriptions probably leave a little to be desired. I don't care about subscribers or what they think or say although if it is a positive comment i try to reply in kind.

I did start posting links to the donation pages of the local animal shelters. That would be my only fiduciary interest.

I view the youtube channel as a personal webpage where i don't have to type much. If something I say or show helps someone or they find it interesting so much the better but I try to keep in mind that my ultimate audience are not old enough to get on the internet yet.

Meh, I don't watch any vandweller vids. I don't need to--I am too busy actually vandwelling.

What bugs me are the ones that mostly just criticize other YouTube channels.

There’s one (Naming names: Little House on the Road) who constantly cites content on other channels and deliberately does not link to or name who he’s referring to, then he distorts, exaggerates and sometimes straight makes up things about what they’re trying to say.

One need not go to youtube for this, it happens right in any forum on the net.

Sad

No arguments with that from me in general, but this guy BSing other van dwellers and wouldbe’s.

This guy is particularly irksome with his clickbait titles and profiting from piggybacking off others content with zero attribution.

He’s trying to be some kind of anti-Bob Wells that discourages people from mobile living. It’s pathetic. He spent all kinds of time talking about the trials of RV living out West but he’s never made it West of the SD badlands...
