vlogging and blogging

Last year I decided to take the plunge and start a YouTube channel.  I think I am very late to the whole YouTube phenomenon, but I started watching some family vlogs, and thought, wow, what a great way to document our lives and have it for memories.



It is part of why I want to blog as well - to have a record of life, to know what we are doing, what struggles we have had, what struggles I have had.  What works, what doesn't - all of it.  It is a huge fun and wonderful thing, blogging.  I thought vlogging could be the same way.



But, vlogging is a lot different, it isn't just a stream of consciousness like a blog can be - well it is, but it also has to be edited down to a nice little package that doesn't take 3 days to upload onto YouTube!



I would love to meet other blogger/vloggers - so if you have a channel, please let me know in the comments below!  

As I have watched more vlogging videos, it seems like they are in two separate camps - one bloggers and one vloggers.  But, I think that combining the two is so much fun!

Who is your favorite vlogger?  Do you watch YouTube channels, or stick to Netflix?

  1. I have not yet tinkered with vlogging, but admire you for doing that! I think it's cool, but I dont feel prepared with how to best achieve a great vlog. I'll stick to blogging for now! :)

  2. I love vlogging! I just started my YouTube channel last fall, and admittedly -- I haven't been keeping up with it like I would like, but you have inspired me to get back to it! :)

  3. I want to vlog so bad, but I truly hate the sound of my own voice and that is exactly why I rarely take videos.

  4. What a great way to document your family's journey. I bet the kids love watching them as well.

  5. I watch YouTube tutorials, but not a lot of vlogs. However, my teenagers love all the gamer YouTube channels! I do have a YouTube channel where I have started posting a few things https://www.youtube.com/c/Julieiscocoandcocoa

  6. This is definitely not an outlet I have entertained but the idea of it is fun! As a DIY blogger seeing quick little tips would be fun! You've got me thinking now :)

  7. I've thought about vlogging but I'm a chicken. I've only just started blogging and I'm still learning. Maybe someday.

  9. I love making vacation videos but I just think I am too boring to have people listen to me talk about random things. . . people LOVE them, though!

  10. Love the idea of vlogging. I'm so on board when my daughter gets over the preschool sickness years. Once all of us are done being sick. Looks like fun and a great way to share our lives with out of town family.

  11. I don't think I could be a vlogger myself because of the way I come across but I do enjoy watching vloggers. I recently discovered Superfruit and they are freaking amazing!

  12. I think if my daughter was younger I would give vlogging more of a try. I wish I had more videos of when she was little. Now she's almost 10 and doesn't really want me filming her.
