Hi all, it’s Samantha here.
The truth is, starting a family vlog on YouTube was the absolute LAST thing I could ever see myself doing. If you’ve been around since the start of our channel you could probably guess this.
I am an introvert. I’m shy. I have a very quiet voice.
On the contrary, Tommy was made for the big screen… He’s loud. Extroverted. Crazy. Loves the spotlight. Everything you’d get in a typical actor or reality tv star. We are truly a pair of opposites, but somehow both our boys ended up like him. They love people, they are confident, loud, crazy, and they love the camera.
The kids are really how Tommy got me on board with vlogging.
Tommy started filming big outings we went on like the pumpkin patch, the apple farm, Christmas day, things like that. I loved being able to look back on the memories of those days. Almost a year after our first vlog, we started officially “family vlogging.”
We started regularly posting our family vlogs on Tommy’s real estate channel (not understanding how the YouTube algorithm worked) in June 2020. We finally realized in January 2021 that it would work best for the real estate channel and the family channel to be separate. Since real estate is what pays the bills right now, we knew it would be the family channel that had to move.
We went from 5,000 subscribers to 0 overnight!
It was a tough pill to swallow, but we’ve been working hard to get back to where we were. It’s been a long journey to this point, but we are here to stay! We have realized that posting videos every week is a passion of ours. We want to be a bright light in your day and we hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoy making them.
Below are thumbnails from some of our very first family vlogs on our original YouTube channel.
Let me know in the comments below if you saw any of these videos or if you have been around since the beginning!
