A straightforward definition of vlogging is – posting a video online. The short term is vlog – it is a form of a blog using video as a medium.
Requirement to Create a Vlog
To vlog, you need to create a YouTube channel. Youtube is offering free registration and also Youtube Premium for exclusive content.
I will tell you a little history about Youtube, the first concept of Youtube is an online dating website but it failed. Youtube was founded by three PayPal employees namely, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. It becomes live on the world wide web last February 14, 2005. On October 9, 2006, Google purchased the Youtube stocks for $1.65 billion.
Today, Youtube is the 2nd most visited website according to Alexa.com. The estimated daily time on site per visitor is 15:21 (mm: ss). This is updated daily based on the trailing three months. The estimated daily unique pageviews per visitor on the site is 8.36.
How to Create a Youtube Channel?
If you don’t know how to make a Youtube channel I have a video tutorial here.
Before making a Youtube channel, make sure you know what your content and focus on only compelling content. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas in the world. You think nothing special to you. Your life is dull, but believe me, so many people like you are out there waiting for someone to make them feel that they are not alone. You help them, and you help yourselves also, I think this is what vlogging all about, connecting to real people.
When you are starting a vlog, you don’t need high-quality equipment. You can start a vlog by using your smartphone and a video editor.
