What is video blogging?

Video blogging or vlogging is when you make a video and post it on the internet with the intention of getting a response from viewers. In most cases blogs are done in a series where the blogger will put out one blog per week, or per month on a particular topic.

What equipment do I need to make a video blog?

To have your own video blog all you need is a camcorder and a computer with video editing software installed onto it. Popular video editing programs for vloggers are iMovie and Final Cut Pro. Once you have made your vlog you will also need to find a site to host it so you can share your vlog with the world and access (preferable high speed) to the internet to upload your final vlog.

What do I make a vlog about?

There are no real rules for vlogging. You can make a vlog about anything you want. The important thing is to pick a topic that you are passionate about and can stick with. A vlog isn’t much of a vlog with just one episode.
