Live from Pioneer Square, Seattle. Welcome to MatadorTV, thanks for tuning in to our vlog! Don’t forget to share this vid and send links to your favorite videos.
Another week in Seattle and all signs point to spring, which is good for me because I would much rather vlog outside! Each week I will choose a new location in Seattle to shoot, keeping things fresh and inviting happenstance adventure!
This week I discovered geocaching as a new way to experience my city and have fun with Bridget. Geocaching is a perfect activity for a traveler who is not currently on some far flung journey. It encourages adventure and curiosity. Bridget joined me on my first geocache find and of course we brought the camera!
YouTube is great, I love YouTube.
Buuuuuut…when I am searching for new, beautiful videos that would feel at home on MatadorTV I find that although YouTube is king of content, there is simply too much UTTER CRAP or just too damn many videos. I mean, have you clicked the “Travel & Events” category , there is a lot of junk listed, and much of the content is very uninspiring…
On Vimeo, on the other hand, it is so effortless to find an entertaining, high quality, well made video that it’s not even funny. The Vimeo travel groups are repositories for hundreds of hours of amazing content.
My problem is that I want a mix of professional and gorgeous and home made and personal. YouTube has the character, Vimeo has the quality…
Do you know of any outstanding vloggers on Vimeo or Youtube? Folks that are consistently putting together fun and engaging travel-lifestyle content…if so send links, leave comments or encourage them to contact the site. I would love to find folks TRAVELING RIGHT NOW and putting up vlogs and videos.
No word yet on the Nomadic Matt / Gap Adventure Costa Rica giveaway…I will certainly keep you posted!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
OF ALL THE PLACES YOU HAVE BEEN, WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO REVISIT FOR A SINGLE DAY?
