It’s just a “human thing” for some folks to share their inner thoughts, demons, joys, questions, etc. etc. This below barely scratches the surface of the surface. Huge genre. (Not sure why the first vid is listed as age-restricted - it’s a few people in a sort of news program/doco publicly sharing their experience obtaining and doing heroin somewhere in the US Midwest.)
Centuries ago, of course, in the 1600s, Samuel Pepys famously started journaling his most private thoughts and public observations, and it makes for fascinating reading: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/4200/4200-h/4200-h.htm
But, yeah, not for me either
(Stretching the discussion a bit, think of Ishmael, Melville’s famous narrator of Moby Dick who, while a fictional character, pours out his [and Melville’s too?] mind on to the page —excruciating page after excruciating page that just goes on and on with rants, soliloquies, self-reflections, etc etc And why, when we read “Crime and Punishment”, are we inexorably drawn deeper into Raskalnikov’s guilt-tortured mind after the murder he commits...it’s not his words, it’s a third-person narrator, yet we can’t help but want to know what’s spiralling through his tortured mind and soul...)
The maw of the Metaverse is open and waiting for you to enter:Maybe one day in the future we’ll all have YouTube or whatever accounts instead of thinking our own thoughts and talking to each other, and express them this way, always out loud
Or maybe Mother Miriam is more your style. There’s a confessional bare-your-soul/express your deepest-held opinion/whatever thing for everyone out there. Maybe one day in the future we’ll all have YouTube or whatever accounts instead of thinking our own thoughts and talking to each other, and express them this way, always out loud
Let’er rip, Mother Miriam...

Or, for a more likely experience:
(I've always wondered why social media was invented/is controlled by men with a profound and obvious deficit in social skills. Maybe that's why -- just not good at making friends IRL. Wanted to meet some girls.)
Is it cooking ceviche or cooking crevice?I hate to always be the wet blanket, but this level of neediness only seems to exist on Youtube Sailing. I've found tons of professional talented Youtubers in travel, art, boats, cooking, architecture, you name it. These people do the hard work of research, have the skills, can write and edit, it's good stuff.
I did a search on Youtube; cooking, and the world is your oyster. It takes a knack to weed out the phonies but it's easy to figure out.
Then I did Cooking on a sailboat, and this one came up on the first page. Are you serious?

Unfortunately, it's not just those under 40. Facebook and Youtube (and other platforms) have enabled a whole slew of people of every age who feel obliged to over-share every aspect of their lives.
As in inherently private person, I don't get that.
A lot of people, with a range of perspectives, are sick of the education corps dishing out lessons we don't want, or need, about things we already know.
I hope your discontent with me comparing trum rhetorical style with that of a moustachioed german chappy did not lead you to making death threats to sailors with whom you disgree though.Hear, hear. If for no other reason than people don't like to be tarred with someone else's brush. I'm conservative and don't like to be associated with the worst of the right, just like garden variety liberals don't have much in common with the worst of the left. I adore Dylan's videos but don't care to hear his political views whether I agree with them or not. Likewise, Roger Barnes' videos are a breath of sanity, but I don't ask a British architect for information about climate science. Nor would I hire a climate scientist to draw an expansion to my house in the Cotswolds, wherever that is. We don't go to sailors for the meaning of life - we have stand-up comedians for that.
I guess at some point sailing around in circles and back and forth really isn't enough to keep most people, least of all the sailors, interested. If you're over 40, you start solving other people's problems for them. If you're under 40, you get a Brazilian wax job, pull on the bikini, make sure your nipples stick out, and fry up a big pot of ceviche or do a sobbing hostage video about how the anchorage has no wi-fi and is full of pirates trying to come on board to sell you fish.
You are associated with worst of the far right because you have done so yourself. Do you now or have you ever supported Donald Trump for president? Whatever dignity conservatives had in the past flew away when they embraced the routine lies of the Trump brand.Hear, hear. If for no other reason than people don't like to be tarred with someone else's brush. I'm conservative and don't like to be associated with the worst of the right...
