I have a commercial theory about the the Top 5 Vlogmeisters...need to grab a beer first before I type away my intelligence.
I have enjoyed Dylan's escapades for years and contributed only a little advice.Maybe so. For you. Would be the same for me.
But then, if you pay someone for something you like them to do, then they will do more of it. Maybe also strive to do it better. Others may chime in. That is also OK for those who want it, both sides.
So I would be happy to contribute to Dylans escapades. Even if I haven't done so yet - pure laziness from my side.
Myself I cannot be bothered with the La Vage and all the others. Not my cup of tea, simply.
True for a lot of them LB but not so for some like the Vagamites and Delos. This online stuff is a serious business and in Vags case if they fail they are still on the hook for a million dollar boat.There lies the reality. We have jobs and businesses that we WORK in/at to pay for our sailing. These vloggers are no different from the unwashed homeless guy playing his guitar in the subway for people to throw him a few coins. They are simply begging for money so they don't have to work. But then they start making how work videos..
Reports just received from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds have increased to 175 mph (280 km/h). The estimated minimum pressure based on data from the aircraft is 909 mb (26.84).
No the difference is you probobly know what you are talking about. Unless the magazine you write for is called 'afloat' or 'coastal passage maker' these are two free mags here that publish any shit that people send them, but they don't pay anyone. Cruisers you meet along the Queensland coast love to claim they 'write for a few sailing magazines'.The only sailing videos I've paid for have been Dylans, because to me there is value in them - and that is how the system should work. If you find value in LaVag, "donate" to them - essentially pay them for the entertainment. Just as finding a really good street performer is a joy, and worth contributing to the continuation of the performance.
I've made a bit of coin writing how-to articles for a boating magazine, does it cheapen my sailing? I'm getting paid to take some pictures of something that I'm doing anyway. Same diff...
I think that for some of the vloggers that is true..... but almost certainly never true of anyone who gets a decent number of hits.There lies the reality. We have jobs and businesses that we WORK in/at to pay for our sailing. These vloggers are no different from the unwashed homeless guy playing his guitar in the subway for people to throw him a few coins. They are simply begging for money so they don't have to work. But then they start making how work videos..
I did? Not denying, just don't recall commenting on your site at all.Tom has offered me some "robust" advice on my efforts....even left some of his "robust" advice on my website.... which I removed.
I really don't recall ever attacking you. For the record, you've never sailed anywhere I want to be. I like air and water to be above 80 degrees.Tom et al place no value on that work at all. When they watch the films all they see is some-one sailing in a place they would rather like to go yet never will ... that pisses them off so they attack.
strangely enough I am rather attracted to one of these^^^ Good synopsis there Dylan. Many people don't appreciate the work/expense that goes into doing what some of these floggers and you do. It ain't recreation with a bit of GoPro..it is a fuckin serious business and with associated costs. How that "job to do" process spoils their enjoyment is not appreciated.
PS. Dylan if you put tits in your great stuff or tell us you are going to buy a cat then get prepared for the wrath of Zeus....I will be depressed if you don't include that lighthouse tip I sent you.
Oh Dylan...a cat...are you really ready for this?strangely enough I am rather attracted to one of these
Ouch, I see, wifey parked the car? Apparently it fits too and easier to get in...
i think hell just froze over.random said:Not at all sure that still holds.
It could be argued that you are begging people to give you money, just for a different offering. After looking at the reactions these 'vloggers' have to public reaction to what they do, it would clearly be living-hell to rely on the responses from any lunatic on the planet, to their latest offering. It would be like tying your income to responses on PA.
As it is here now, we can just laugh. But they don't think the flaming, or lack of viewing they sometimes get to their product is very funni. Fuck that for a living.
