What is Vlogging?
Because of its tremendous impact on pop culture and social media, many people have had some degree of interaction with vlogging. For those that haven’t: A vlog is a video blog. That is, it’s a blog, but in video form.
How Do I Create a Vlog?
Although they can be used for the same general purpose, vlogging tends to be more involved than blogging. The reason for that is the gear involved. Unlike a blog, creating a vlog means you’ll need specific types of audio and video equipment. How do you figure out what vlogging equipment you need? The first step is deciding what type of content you want to create. After that, check out our beginner’s guide to vlogging to run you through the basics of vlogging and gear.
How Do I Share My Vlog?
One of the reasons vlogging is so popular is because vlogs are incredibly accessible.
