Good things come to those who VLOG

June 16, 2006

I am seriously considering trying something new. A Vlog. Why not? Everyone is doing it, and I just listened to TWIT show from Vloggercon and it really sounds that if you want your blog to go somewhere it can't just be written word anymore. Since I am interested in working with video, why shouldn't I try and put out a video blog entry at some point instead of always doing written word.

I was listening to TWIT as I just said, and I was most interested when they started to talk about the bloggers who were writers turning to the video medium to get their stuff more noticed in the blogosphere.I recently have a really interesting conversation with Dave Gray, my co-host on the Global Geek Podcast, and he told me he is not interested in promoting his blog, and getting it "noticed" The only reason for this is he is a little bit older than me, 14 years, and he has a career that he is happy with and is happy to stay doing. I am still trying to find my way in this medium which I have come to realise is called life.
Another thing is I am a bit of a stickler when it comes down to production quality and I think it is going to be difficult to "throw-together" a video blog and just know "its just a vlog" so production doesn't matter. Thats going to take some getting used to! Stay tuned for something like a Vlog.. very soon…

    I tend to disagree that the written word has come to an end. Allthough we blogg from our hearts ( i hope we all do ) words give us that little extra artistic edge to get our message across. Sure , you can do it with video to , ( I imagine putting together your own tribute movie of 2001 a space .. just to let people know you love Stanley Cubric) but the fact of the matter is , is that production time for a vlog is much higher then the production time of a blog. This way a blog can follow ‘real life events” at a little more faster pace then a completely produced show. So I tend to disagree . Blogging did not stop when podcasting came .. podcasting will not stop when vlogging comes.

    Thats what you call development and really its much more expressive and easy to understand. For instance, looking for your love on a net like webdatedotcom rather just meeting someone on your neighborhood whom you know for a lifetime. It was more adventurous and fun.
