Now and again I see someone on social media referring to a ‘famous blogger’. Being curious I wander over to YouTube to hear what is being broadcast by these celebrated individuals. I wondered, do that many regular motorcyclists really watch ‘this is me riding my bike to the shop’ videos? Took me a while to realise the numbers reflect the much wider audience since YouTube is content provider to many peoples lounge room TV’s via streaming. Virtual riding is very popular with couch potatoes, with people who actually don’t ride but harbour a secret wish to.
As usual my timing is out for this. I was a video enthusiast for 10-12 years when younger. VHS-C, Hi-8, Mini-DV. I stopped because I never liked viewing the final result. I threw out all the tapes when I left Australia because I had never watched anyone them even once afterwards. I thought it was fun making video but you end up making something for others to enjoy not yourself.
Anyway I sold my GoPro Hero 5 session the other day to refocus purely on still photography so guess I am destined to remain almost famous.
