A vlog is actually a video blog containing video content. Bloggers have been including video content since much time. But, vlogging has become more in fashion as cheaper equipment have become available, and other things such as the supporting software and hosting websites have become more in use. Both Google and Yahoo feature parts that have videos and numerous MP3 players also support video such as the greatly famous iPod. Anyone having a camera capable of capturing videos, and a latest computer device having great connection, can create vlogs and share them online. Following are different steps that will enable you to become a vlogger.
Vlogging journey starts with a good camera:
First thing is the device that you will have to use for capturing videos. It can be any device that can record a good video like a tablet, a smartphone, or a laptop’s webcam. A good camera is, however, recommended since viewers are greatly attracted to vlogs that contain high definition videos. Average or bad quality videos aren’t much enjoyed of course. A good vlogging camera will help you create higher quality vlogs.
Setting up a YouTube channel:
After having a good camera for vlogging, you require a platform where you can upload your videos. Currently, YouTube is the most famous website that is helping vloggers to share their videos. Thus, YouTube is highly recommended.
Filming a vlog:
Now, when both the camera and a channel are ready, you can actually start your vlogging. If you aren’t sure what to make a video of, or to vlog about, you can record your daily routine, hobbies, what you’re thinking at the moment, take some risks or challenges, or anything like that.
Do some editing:
In order to make your vlogs look more professional, the videos must be edited and any part of the video that you think must not be included, cut out that. There are many editing software, both free and paid. Choose the best software that is compatible with your device and edit your recordings.
Uploading the vlog:
After the editing step, your video is ready to be uploaded to the YouTube channel. Go to YouTube, click the button that says Upload, and from this step, the app will take you through the whole process. Choose an attractive title for your vlog and do give the description and the tags as well so that your vlog is accessible to more and more people.
It is the main step after your vlog is published on the YouTube channel. By promoting the vlog, number of views will increase. The most convenient way to promote a vlog is by means of the social media. Share the vlog on all your social apps such as Facebook, Tumbler, Twitter, etc. Also share it among other Youtubers.
Once you start with vlogging, do it more often. When you stay active and consistent, people are more likely to watch your content.
