7 vloggers that share their unique lives through YouTube

A regular series to highlight great channels on YouTube

Vlogging is one of the most popular formats on YouTube for creators and viewers alike. Most vlogs feature experiences from normal every day people, going about their business, and sharing the fun along the way. Some vloggers however lead more unconventional lives, and are spicing up the genre by sharing their unique stories and lifestyles with us.
