If you're gonna use it for home videos then make home videos, in 5 years when you look back at your videos you're not gonna care what you bought from Walmart, you're gonna wanna know what your kids are up to and where their development was!!!
That's one of the main reasons I really enjoy bratayleys videos, a lot of people don't like Bratayley because they say there's too many silences or it's not exciting enough, well they're on YouTube to record their real daily life and that's it!! If you don't like it, don't watch it. At least they don't force their kids to perform for the camera and half the video isn't on them discussing things like laundry or cleaning their house, which I personally don't care to watch and I don't think their family members do either.
I never understood that either. The first person I heard say that was Shaycarl. But then not too long ago I heard him say that he started the blogs to make money. So yeah.
I doubt that's anyone real motivation. They just want to make it sound they are good people who aren't just after money, but it's the furthest from the truth mist of the time.
If you are truly vlogging for memories, you don't need to upload it publicly to YouTube. Your memories don't need to be seen by millions to matter or be real and meaningful. If they were doing it for that reason they would share the videos with close family and friends, they wouldn't be desperate for views, sponsors and free stuff. Most of these people are just greedy and whoring their families out for money, not memories.
