VW Blog

Aircooled VW blogs, builds and banter. Since lunchtime 2009

Our Aim.

Our aim is simply to connect air-cooled VW owners.

We do this completely altruistically, with no charge and with no expectation of anything in return. VDubber is 100% free. It always has been and always will be.

We provide an online space where people can share air-cooled VW projects, promote events, products and websites, post photos and videos and connect with other VW enthusiasts, both locally and globally.

But wait... Doesn't Facebook already do that?

Social media is a big part of everyones day to day life, and unfortunately websites like VDubber are slowly becoming replaced by Facebook groups, but the issue that we find with modern social media like Facebook is that shortly after you have made your post, it generally disappears off of the bottom of the page, never to be seen again. If you've ever been unable to find a post you just read 5 minutes ago, you'll know what I mean. This really sucks if you are trying to keep track of your restoration project, or even if you would just like to see all of the info in one place.

VDubber is a space to keep track of your restoration projects and custom builds that keeps all of your posts in one, easy to find VW friendly place. You are in control of your own page, with it's own blog feed, photo and video galleries, in one easy to find location, and best of all it's on a site with others dedicated to doing the same. In a way it's a little bit like Facebook for Volkswagens, but without all of the distracting drama and memes.

So rather than try to work against the Social Media giants (as we would be kidding ourselves to think that we could do it any better) we have tried to make our content work WITH them. All of our content can be easily shared with your favourite social media accounts, and you will find a 'share' button on every page / group / photo / video / post / etc for just this reason. The cool thing is that when it posts the content it does it in an elegant way that links back to the original content. You can also use VDubber for photo and video hosting that you can then link to in other forums.
