To get started you must have an idea or, a spark of an idea or, a little bit of curiosity. It doesn’t take much. Produce a few minutes of video by using a digital camera or a still camera with movie feature, edit it or don’t and post it online and see what happens is more the rule of thumb.
Huh … Want to have your own TV show? Do you have the need to spread your wisdom to each and every member of the Internet-connected community? Do you just want to stay in touch with friends and family? Now you can! Vlogging (aka Video Blogging), a social, personal/ amateur/ professional broadcasting opportunity is the latest in online interactive technology with a community. Have a good idea? Put it on the web, talk about yourself and join the revolution.
To get started you must have an idea or, a spark of an idea or, a little bit of curiosity. It doesn’t take much. Produce a few minutes of video by using a digital camera or a still camera with movie feature, edit it or don’t and post it online and see what happens is more the rule of thumb. Sure, it can be grandiose with corporate advertising, field reporters, proper credits and a script. Your vlog can also be home-video style entertainment of you sitting in your bedroom eating a bowl of cereal. The numbers don’t lie- people want to see the intimate details of other peoples lives. As we get farther and further removed in our own worlds with little reason to leave the laptop, people are coming forward with their lives published and broadcasted for all the world to see.
Here are some suggested resources to start video blogging :
Personally I used the following tools : smartphone camera and digital camera to shoot my video, then used the following editors to edit my video : Camtasia, Powerpoint and Filmora to create my video. WordPress/ Blogger is the leading weblog tool on the Internet. Anyone can view your site, whether they are registered or not (unlike MySpace). You are able to completely design your own blog. There are free tutorials and immense amounts of help to assist you in getting started (https://facebook.com/HowToYouTube101 or http://youtube.com/c/yikitv2). I would like to recommend you to join the WordPress forum, making it easier for you to get your skills together on the technical side.
WordPress creates beautiful website, blog and Vlog
WordPress (aka WP) – WordPress is a free blog software that has more features than Blogger. It has the ability to label your postings using categories, making it easier for viewers to search around your site. WordPress has the advantage over Blogger if you are more technically oriented. If you know xthml/css/php, the software can be customized and encourages creativity. WordPress requires a mySQL database space on a server. Adding links is simpler than on Blogger and published faster.
“Clearly, given easier solutions, consumers will be far more likely to edit their videos,” said Sharpe Partners interactive agencys CEO Kathy Sharpe. “And those who edit their video are presumably more likely to share it with others, which will expand this market even further.”
