Lets Talk About: How You Can Start Video Blogging Successfully Today by stevespack(m): 1:05am On Aug 06
Blogging has become one of the most popular ways to get your viewpoints of society a told to millions of people. However, this form of self-expression has moved into the 21st century through the means of web video. It used to be that when a person was to make a blog, they would do so only in text and picture format. And this format became extremely popular, and even an obsession for some individuals. However, since the introduction of high-speed Internet, and the wide availability of these broadband connections, millions of people have moved off of their keyboards and onto their digital camcorders.

Video blogging is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to connect and talk with the world around you. Actually, since video blogging has become so popular, there is even a new term for it, it's called vlog. But how can you access these vlogs and also, why are they becoming so popular?

To answer the first question, you can find video blogs just about anywhere you look. However, one of the most popular places to find video blogs is through YouTube, it is here that thousands of individuals update their video blogs everyday, allowing you the chance to actually hear them talk about what's going on in their world, instead of just listening to it. But, why are video blogs so popular?

One would think that many people wouldn't want to publish their faces across the Internet for anyone to view, however, this presumed paranoia is nothing more than that, presumed. Many people find that expressing their feelings about a certain situation, or explaining a solution to a problem, is much easier and faster than simply typing it out. With video blogs, you are able to connect with your audience in an extremely intimate way.


Instead of reading cold words on a highly decorated background, you are able to actually sit and watch another person discuss something that is very important to them. Did you know that 85% of what we learn and absorb is done through only two senses of our body? These two senses are our sight and sound. Thus, when you are watching, or creating, a video blog you are able to understand and absorb more information than simply reading text alone.

It's because of the power of video that so many marketers and advertisers have begun to use video instead of texts and sounds. This can be true by visiting MySpace or any other popular website, because when you visit them you will most likely see an advertisement that isn't made of solely text, but with a video included. Because you are watching a video, there is a longer lasting impression of the product in your mind.

However, no matter why you decide to watch or make a video blog, there is one thing that everyone has in common. We live in a society that is predominately standoffish and distant, however, with the power of web video, and video blogging, individuals are able to connect with their fellow man, without actually seeing them.

Tips for Video Blogging


So you've decided to give your fingers a rest and put your best face forward. You want to get involved in video blogging, and why not, it is a great way to connect with your audience and provide them with interesting information in half the time it would normally take them to read it. However, when you have decided to make a video blog, there are several things that you must remember. These tips will allow you to have a video blog that individuals actually want to see, and it will keep your blog interesting and informative.

The first of these tips is to make sure that you keep all of your video blog entries short. In most cases you will want to keep your blog in the range of one to three minutes. If you feel that you have much more to say than in this short time span, simply, create a sequel to your first blog. But remember, you will not want to keep your blog longer than four minutes, because many people that are watching video blogs are not there for thirty minutes. They want to be entertained in a short amount of time, and then move on. This is why having more video blog entries is better than having fewer, longer entries.

The next step is to talk about a story that is interesting. Even if your story is just about what happened to you at the grocery store today, make sure that you have a beginning, middle and end. However, again if you feel your story would take longer than the suggested amount of time, either don't talk about it or make it into a multi-post story. Many video bloggers will not only write about their story, but they will also include a video that helps describe the story.


A good example of this is say you saw the strangest dog in the entire world today while walking down the street. Upon seeing it you took a short fifteen second video. After you have finished writing about the dog, you can include the video to allow your readers to see exactly what you saw. Videos are much more powerful than photos, because the video actually places you in a moving scene, instead of a stagnant one.

Of course, this next tip is something that everyone should follow. When you are recording your video blog, make sure that there is no background noise. There is nothing more annoying than hearing a strange noise when the speaker is trying to talk. Many times, individuals will tune out what you're trying to say, and will focus on the background noise, or they will simply leave your blog. Also, make sure that you utilize close-ups instead of longer distanced shots. This is because when you are talking into a camera, the viewer wants to clearly see who is speaking to them.

It's the same concept as in real life, you wouldn't listen to a person who was trying to give you information from across the room, so don't set up your video blog to where you are distanced from the camera. A good way to discover if you are at the correct distance from the camera is by looking at the screen and making sure that only your chest and up is visible. You don't want to show your whole torso, because you would be too far away for the viewers.

And remember, always use good lighting. Don't sit in front of a window that has the sun shining through it, always face your lighting, and never have a backlight for video blogging. https://eisteve.blogspot.com.ng/2017/08/lets-talk-about-how-you-can-start-video.html

This is another goldmine. One thing with this is that, it’s not yet saturated like the blogosphere. Not everyone can start a YouTube channel due to its requirements. Not everyone can afford a HD video camera. Not everyone can speak good and fluent English. It’s not everyone that can get a cool beautiful room for his video shoot. My dear, it’s not everyone that can edit a video. Those who started quit after two weeks.

Now, this shows how wide the chance of making money is. There’s no competition. All you need is get enough knowledge and finance. Buy the necessary equipment. Depending on your niche, you’ll have to make the room reflect its purpose.

If you want to start a music tutorial channel, you will need to have equipment like a piano, a beautiful room with awesome stickers that will indeed inspire music to your viewers. When you’ve start building a community, you first step to earning will be applying for Google Adsense.

The major challenge to vlogging is getting a high quality camera and speaking well. Those that have a flair for teaching will do well.
Other things like SEO can be learnt as you go.

A quiet environment and video editing skills are a huge plus.

For video editing, you can start out with camtasia studio 9 before progressing to Adobe premiere

I can make camtasia studio 9 available for a little token
