Wednesday Words: Vlogging

Today's word is a word you see often in tweets and Facebook posts encouraging people to watch their Vlog. Vlog is short for video blog and Vlogging, naturally, is short for video blogging. Basically, instead of writing everything down, they instead do a video about it.

A great example - instead of me writing this post, I could do a video about vlogging and just link to it - but as I hate being on camera and much prefer video editing and being behind the camera, it's not likely you will find me Vlogging, though I do often do video chats related to gaming (not social media).

There are advantages and disadvantages to Vlogging. Like Blogging, it takes time and energy to build a following. Vlogging also requires you to look good and edit your video before posting it, while writing it may be quicker. While it still requires editing, it can happen quicker since you don't have to process video.

There are many types of blogging and you don't have to limit yourself to just one. See which one or ones work for you.
