Vlog or blog?

In my last blog post ( which you can see here), I mentioned that I had been reading a book about videoblogging.  I’ve been thinking about doing a vlog in addition to the blog for a while, in particular for all the times when I have something to say but can’t really be arsed sitting in front of a computer typing it out (we all have those moments, don’t we?)

I have dabbled in vlogging in the past, however I’ve never made any of my attempts public – with the exception of a couple of clips on12seconds.tv, which were really just me messing around trying out the service, filming any old thing.  Thing is, while I am confident using a video camera I can’t say I am the most confident person in front of one.  I am a shy person, although a lot less than I used to be and I have always been extremely nervous  whenever I have had to  give any presentation of any kind in front of people.  I feel the same whenever I have attempted talking into a camera – even though I know I am going to delete it afterwards.

Anyway, if I was to make a vlog, would you watch it? Would you be prepared to see my face and hear my voice rambling on about any subject I think of? Just as importantly, am I prepared to do it?

  1. Up to you, mainly.

    I’d watch it, and vlogs on youtube are pretty popular nowadays. If you felt uncomfortable in any way though, best not to.
