Re: Going Topless??!
I'm sure I'll be criticized for this, but I'll speak my mind anyway:
Cara, we are not the target demographic of your blog/vlog. You're looking for the landlocked guy in Arkansas, living a life of quiet desperation in his cubicle who dreams of doing what we're doing. He's watching Delos and La Vagabonde on Youtube. Your most productive demographic is people who are NOT sailing.
Most of us here actually sail and enjoy the same experiences and lifestyle that you are advertising. For us, there is very little new or exciting in what you are doing so using this forum to pimp your blog is largely a waste of time and frankly, annoying. Youtube is already saturated with scantily clad cruising couples vlogging away, attempting to monetize their never-ending vacations by flashing titillating glimpses of heavily censored skin while doing very little sailing and far too much talking and dramatizing. (Yawn)
While I'm certain that there are a few men on this forum who will happily sit on the edges of their seats, hoping to see your thigh or that brief glimpse of side-boob, I'm not one of them and I suspect not very many, and I'll also wager that the female skippers/owners here are not very interested either.
Yeah, yeah I know- No one is forcing me to click on your posts or blog, so why don't I just move on? Now that I've said my piece, I'll share some photos of some of us actually sailing instead of peddling soft porn at anchor (which is just boring) and then I'll go away.
