Video Blogging “It’s becoming more and more popular on the internet.”
What is video blogging? - Video blogging or vlogging is when you make a video and post it on the internet with the intention of getting a response from viewers. In most cases blogs are done in a series where the blogger will put out one blog per week, or per month on a particular topic. - A vlog is a platform in which you can tell people what you know and also what makes you different from others. In a vlog it’s good to talk about things that are not only what you know or do, but instead add more things that are relevant to your audience. In this way the viewers form a trust in you and would surely look up to you whenever they want to get a problem solved or in some instances hire you for their own work. With vlogs a feature widely used is the option of allowing people to leave comments on your videos, it creates an environment in which the user can learn more about their viewers and get to know them better. It also allows you to find out what your viewers would like to see which can further assist you in creating good content in the future.
Making Vlogs - Making your own video blog is very simple, all you need is a camcorder and a computer with video editing software installed onto it. Popular video editing programs for vloggers are iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and Windows Movie Maker. Once you have made your vlog you will also need to find a site to host it on, you can then share it with the world by using the internet and uploading your vlog to a video sharing website. - The rise in popularity of vlogs has also been perpetuated by the development of digital recording capabilities on devices such as mobile phones, which enable a vlogger to post their videos directly to the internet.
How is it beneficial? - There are no real rules for vlogging, you can make a vlog about anything you want, you are only limited by your ideas and imagination. The important thing is to pick a topic that you are passionate about and can stick with. Note that a vlog isn’t much of a vlog with only one video. The rise in popularity of viral videos has encouraged many bloggers and corporate websites to take up vlogging to draw traffic to their site. The simple act of posting a viral video before or at the height of its popularity and ensuring it comes up in a search engine could result in an increase of several thousands of hits to a site. - Vloggers who wish to draw traffic to their site will also sometimes post their videos to other video sharing sites, and include a caption on the video which directs viewers to visit their website “to see more videos like these.”
YouTube has become the most popular video hosting site with an audience of over 70 million unique users per month.YouTube is also the leading site for video sharing, and remains at the top of Google's search word list. YouTube connects people and allows them to share experiences with each other through video blogs.
