Blogging About Vlogging: It's Harder Than It Looks
Vlogging is kind of fun. And very different than writing. My work requires I'm on video a lot, so I thought video blogging would be a snap once I figured out the logistics. For example, how do I film from an angle that doesn't make me look like a Gelfling? And I hope to complete the whole editing/downloading process just once without wailing to B-man, 'I'm too stupid to do it.'
But honestly, the hardest thing has been figuring out how to be myself on camera. Playing a professional role and delivering information on film is a snap. Video blogging is much more personal, so anything less than a personal approach to you, my readers, just won't work. My goal is for the person you see on video to match up with the person who writes the blog, as we are, after all, one in the same.
A few of you have been video blogging for quite some time. Any words of wisdom for this vlogging newbie?
