    I can't comment on the channel layout itself as, personally, I can't see too much wrong with it.
    Maybe the banner art could include something that I might expect on the channel (but I don't do this myself).

    I looked at a few videos. They demonstrate some pretty good vlog editing techniques and each had elements I found interesting. However, I didn't know what story you were sharing that would engage me. Without that 'hook'  I am just watching a few of your video clips stitched together using editing techniques.

    As an example : At 06:07 of the New York video you tell me we are in Washington Square Park and then show me a fountain. I have no idea of the context. Is it a fountain you've always wanted to visit? If so, why? Did something happen there of any significance? Why would I want to watch it? It's a nice fountain but I can watch fountains myself if I wanted to. If it was a 'filler' shot then too much time was spent on it. It might have been use for a transition e.g. follow the water spout up and then cut to follow a building up or use the fountain to move the eye ready for the next shot.

    Anyway, vlogging isn't my thing BUT I have been following Jeff Bartsch's channel Story Greenlight. Some of it is a bit deep for me but try his very first video to see what he is all about and How to Make Smooth Video Edits: GAME-CHANGING Pro Tip for moving the eye focus for smooth edits.
    . He also has '27 Questions to craft the perfect video' download which are helpful.
