What is a Vlog?

A “vlog” is a video log, or video blog is anything you take that can be uploaded on the internet. Usually, vlogs are found on popular social media platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, or Facebook. The difference between a vlog and a blog is that it is in a video format. Vlogging is much more difficult to some because it includes a lot more rather than just written words and some images.

What are things I can vlog?

Anything!

Honestly speaking you may talk or discuss anything under the sun as long as it is something you are genuinely interested about (or knowledgeable) that can interest others.

Ask yourself these first:

Why do I want to vlog?

Is it to earn money, be an influencer, be famous, get free stuff, to educate, raise awareness, etc.?

What will be my Vlog content?

Popular topics or niche now are:

There is a great list of topics that you can vlog about but be specific and know who your target audience is. You wouldn’t make a vlog just for yourself, correct?

Things to Consider

How often should you post?

The answer is as often as possible, but consistency is the key. It doesn’t matter if it is once a week as long as you are consistent.

Length of the vlog

If you are a rookie or just starting to vlog, 5 to 10 minutes is a good length. Try to be creative as much as possible in the shortest amount of time. Give your point across then ask your audience to engage. Ask some questions or comments.

Tools

A camera that can produce at least 480p is great for beginners and a good microphone. You don’t need a high-end phone. You may get anything as long as it gets the job done. You might also want to edit your videos, get some free video editors app stores for it. Last but not least, a speedy internet connection.

Conclusion

Vlogging is truly amazing and even more if you know how to make one. Good luck in your first upload and remember a good vlog will deliver a quality image, sound, content and relevance.
