I have to say I find this whole trend disturbing. Guys pimping our their wives/girlfriends to garner views. If my daughter's boyfriend tried that I'd punch him in the nose, and then force him to watch 'Maiden'.And maybe he needs a gal who looks great in a bikini to go viral.
That's kind of an odd-ball statement that implies that the only people that watch these sailing blogs are dirty old men that have a need to see girls in bikinis on sailboats. From my perspective, nothing could be further from the reality. I'd say it's a combination of the destinations and the relationships. I think it's true that couples, or multiples of relationships (such as Delos) are what attracts viewers. I typically seek out the blogs where I might relate to the destinations. Sue gets fully involved in the relationships. Sue is far from an avid sailor, and she doesn't have any particular need to watch sailing blogs, but there are a few that she is totally vested in watching every episode because she has developed a strong attachment to the couples, as if they are personal friends. She has a personal interest in where they go, what they video record, everything personal that they go through. She keeps up with them on social media and she wants to make contributions to their adventures, probably because these people have opened a window into their lives (and their lives are interesting) in a very personal way. It's as if they are close friends. It's reality television in it's best form.Sex sells.
You did nothing wrong. It's the (slightly amplified) PC culture enforced in these fora that cause us to wish to avoid any confrontation whatsoever.I'm sorry I put in that throw away statement in my post.
Exactly. I was just agreeing with you.I was just making a comment on the way to make a video go viral.
