You are the director of your own video. Videos for blogging are known as vlogs (short term for video blog). It is not just an outlet for media response; vlogs can also be profitable. Business experts tell us that by creating video advertising products and linking with various web directories, fast income is a possibility.

Youtube is a typical example of a resource for vlogs. It’s a media-friendly digital file anyone can author and direct anytime, anywhere, anyhow.

What should be the content of my vlog?

Anything you can think of. Why not a mixture of humor, downfalls, heartaches, struggles, and life’s pleasures. You could feature anything –business product, use it as a teaching and learning tool, or advertisement for your business. Let your imagination be your guide.

How can I start my own video blog?

You will need a camcorder or a mobile phone, microphone for better sound, tripod and your own imagination and script. Put the lens in front of something that you think would be interesting and would catch your viewer’s attention. Then start recording. You are in control of the content, time and message.

When is the right time to start?

After you’ve assembled the right equipments, make a go of it. Take it as you wish. Record it as you please. Anytime is the best time. Just make sure viewers can comprehend what you’ve created.

Here are 3 easy steps for beginners and first timers on how to put up a vlog:
