    Create a Vlog


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    You would love to reach out to the world with a blog, but every time you try to write something, you get stuck. Maybe text isn't your medium. Never fear; there's a blog style designed just for you. It's called a vlog (short for video blog), and it just might change the way you think about blogging.

    Some people just aren't the writing type. You might be great in person and have plenty of interesting things to say, but when confronted with a blank screen none of those thoughts manage to come out the right way.

    Reading something and seeing something are two very different things. If you shy away from keeping a blog because you aren't the pen-and-paper sort, there might be a way you can still share your thoughts with the public: create a vlog.

    Video blogs are growing more popular all the time. Instead of writing out your words, you can simply speak them - right into a camera that will record a video you can publish live on the World Wide Web.

    Instead of creating short pieces of written content, you'll be creating short pieces of streaming video. The graphic, interactive nature of vlogs appeals to many Internet users. It also gives you a new feature to present to your traffic.

    Defining Vlogs

    Video blogs are just that - blog entries which are presented as video clips rather than typewritten posts. These video posts should be entered regularly, because one of the defining characteristics of blogs is that they are frequently updated. Many bloggers and vloggers provide new posts daily. Posts are collected in a single location (generally over multiple Web pages), displayed by date and organized by category. There are many sites which offer free blog space that anyone can use.

    Any blog can become a vlog when those blog entries are offered as video clips. Sometimes, words accompany the clips and sometimes they do not. Vlogs usually center around a theme or topic, which is often an individual's day-to-day life. A vlog is an organized, oft-updated collection of video clips which share a single theme, and anyone can have one of their own.

    Why Vlog?

    Vlogs consist primarily of video clips. In fact, some vlogs contain little or no words at all. Isn't it word-based content that drives traffic? Why vlog when it's blogs that give you the keyword-rich content you need?

    It's true that vlogs have little word-based content to offer, but they provide a whole new element of depth to your site. Graphically rich and replete with sound, video clips offer visually-based entertainment to your audience.

    It's a good idea to maintain a blog for the content and a vlog for its interactive features. Vlogging is very popular and very "now," a feature that's attractive to many types of Internet users. If you want to enrich the text-based content of vlog posts, include a few words and phrases with each entry and remember to include other optimization elements on your vlog content pages.
