With the internet at the tips of our fingers at any given moment, more and more creators are generating new types of content to share with the world in a variety of forms. Vlogging is a popular way to share experiences and video content with your followers and has the potential to be lucrative if you gain a strong following. Starting your own vlog is fairly easy. All you need is some equipment and a great idea. You can even shoot your entire vlog on your iPhone, but you will want to invest in some additional vlogging equipment to enhance the quality of your videos and attract more viewers. Check out some of these tips to help launch your vlog.
What Is Vlogging?
Vlogs and blogs are two different types of platforms that tell a story to viewers or readers. Most people with blogs or vlogs are drawing from their own personal experiences to create content and share thoughts, ideas and information with their followers. The difference between a blog and a vlog is that blogs are composed of written words while vlogs are a video version of a blog. Think of vlogs almost as video journals. Vlogging is also a great way to share videos demonstrating how to fix or make something–or share any kind of action-packed videos.
Why Start a Vlog?
Starting a vlog is a great way to share your interests and knowledge with other people. Your vlog can help launch a community of people with similar hobbies and passions and connect you with others. If you’re interested in video creation, starting a vlog is also the perfect avenue to practice and experiment with new filming techniques. If you’re interested in making money off your vlog, it is definitely possible, but it does take a lot of time to garner enough followers and quality content to attract advertisers.
