Why You Should Start Vlogging

Or why vloggers shall inherit the future:

Why vlog?


I started my YouTube channel in around 2010, and it has been one of my greatest assets. Still — I think 80% of my value is this blog, but 20% of the value has come through YouTube.

Why vlog?

Vlogging is technically more natural. To write is very unnatural. Even for me, I only write out of necessity. I prefer to talk, walk, and stream my thoughts with all the unedited “um’s” and “ah’s”.

Why live forever?

Vlogging is fun!


Vlog in a spirit of fun and playfulness. Ain’t no right or wrong way to do it. The way I think about it:

To vlog is to make a “video-log” of your daily life, your activities, your thoughts– whatever!

A video log of your life is fun. You can see how your life has changed and evolved over time.

Think BEYOND YouTube

YouTube is good, but I use VideoPress as well. The benefits of VideoPress:

  1. Access to original file
  2. No spam
  3. No distractions
  4. Integration with wordpress

Downsides of YouTube:

  1. Lots of ads
  2. Distractions for ‘related videos’ which shows up at the end
  3. The traffic is directed to YouTube, instead of your own website/blog.

What should I vlog about?


JUST SHARE YOUR LIFE. You can share the most mundane things like your daily routine. No editing necessary. Keep it raw, fun, simple, and playful.
