Does anyone follow Full Timer You Tube bloggers?

Was just wondering if anyone on here follows Full Time RVers who have You Tube channels.

My husband and I both follow a couple who have a You Tube channel called Long, Long Honeymoon. And we follow a family of full timers that have a You Tube channel called Keep Your Daydream.

Well last night just as it got dark an Airstream pulled in beside our lot in the RV resort that we are currently staying at in Ft. Myers, FL. I had just come in from sitting outside as the No-see-ums were getting pretty bad. This morning I went outside to our outside cooler to get some orange juice and I saw on the back of our neighbors truck it had "LongLongHoneymoon.com"!!!! It was one of the people we follow on You Tube! Couldn't believe it.

I thought if I saw them outside of their Airstream I'd go over and say hello but didn't see them once come outside. DH and I left to go get a few groceries and when we came back they were gone. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed.

So that got me to thinking.....does anyone else follow any full timers on You Tube? And if you do, who do you watch?

I can't help but think that, because people watch or "follow" these people, they don't have to actually work and just get to tour the countryside. Kind of like the Kardashians. Maybe I'm sore I didn't think of it first, I would love to quit the grind and head out FT RVing. Guess I'm just old school thinking, where you actually labored for your living.

Try to do some video editing, setup a video for yourself and then say its not work!! Listen I can't do it either, but its certainly work but as an engineer i'm just not that artistic!

I follow a couple different channels on you tube. It's pure envy on my end. What a great way to spend the days

We thought about starting a video blog but decided we didn't want to hassle with it. We are retired and want to stay that way! No commitments wanted here!!! LOL

I agree. I wish I had the skill set to produce blogs and videos like they do. On second thought why would I want to spend all that time working when the idea its to retire from working. I do enjoy watching them though.

No offence but I assure you that the YouTubers mentioned labor for their living. Ever write copy, shoot video or edit? It's no picnic.

I dont. I do not live viciously through others. Blogs seem to be about how the blogger interprets places, food, etc. I find that most of the blogs do not reflect either my interests or the info I am looking for. Maybe I just havenít found the right ones. Find me a blogger that full times, rides 14+ hours a week on a road bike, cooks every meal fresh, enjoys micro brews and good wine. Then maybe.

We're a family with younger kids and there are a couple of families with younger kids who full time that we follow. Even though we are not fulltimers, it's something that we can see ourselves doing more of so it's helpful to see what others are doing. Some of the channels are The Family Fulfilment Project & Keep your Day Dream. We also watch videos from the honeymoon folks & love your rv (who have both been doing this for about 10 years).

I have a YouTube channel myself with classic TV shows but I also put up other videos about our travels and I know what goes into putting them together and publishing them. So I appreciate the work that these folks put into them and know what they are making from them and it's not as much as you'd think.

These folks are basically using their lives to share information. To the persons that compared them to the Kardashians or that they don't work have no idea what they are talking about.

Same here. We are young retirees (no gray hair yet!), but have no interest in vlogging our life to make a paltry penny. I like photography and text a pic to select people every few weeks just to let people know we are alive. Otherwise, no commitments and no reservations.
