SO-CALLED SMART TVs have changed what I watch.
I’ve never been much of a YouTube guy, except to stream a music mix once in a while, but I’ve watched a lot of YouTube lately.
The high-quality production on some YouTube channels I’ve found has been a pleasant surprise.
The best part is it seems like most of those channels started with a person who wanted to tell a story on camera and grew from there.
Before the pandemic put the brakes on just about everything for a while, I got bit by the travel bug and hit the road.
It was fun to set out and see what I could see in weekend trips, and I started to stockpile places by which I was intrigued.
Since coronavirus canceled my travel plans, I took to travel videos and my list of places to go has grown.
I’ve found people who travel the country and document what they experience, like The Carpetbagger — who is on a quest to visit as many old-school amusement parks as possible right now and has done a video at the Boll Weevil Monument — and Adam the Woo.
Through My Lens is another travel vlog which has opened my eyes to some great destinations.
I also love history, and YouTube has no shortage of it.
The stuff (I think the term is “content”) in the series has taught me a lot already.
I’ve also discovered some great music talents through YouTube.
I hope people who put as much time and effort into their videos as I’ve seen from some of the content creators whose content I’ve watched know it’s appreciated, especially in a time like this.
This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is, “watch.”
