Types of Online Video Blogging
You might already be familiar with the term “video blog.” This (what else can we call it?) phenomenon has spread throughout the world. Video blogging allows people to connect with each other in an entirely unforeseen level. Online video blogging, however, is thought of by many people as a waste of time. They believe that video blogging actually helps no one. This mindset should be enlightened when people learn about the different types of online video blogging:
1) Personal – this is the most common type of online video blog you can see today. People who wish to express themselves do so through personal online video blogging. Think of this activity as a compromise between keeping a diary and doing a talk show. It allows you to be heard by a lot of people and yet it also allows you to express yourself without caring about what they will think. Thus, you transcend all of the inhibitions that prevent you from truly connecting to the rest of humanity. This type of online video blogging helps people connect. That should be enough reason to engage in the activity.
2) Informative – Some people engage in online video blogging not merely to express themselves but to show people the truth about life. They attempt to convey the facts of the world by presenting informative videos to people who care to watch. Some people present “behind-the-scenes” videos on current events. People who have access to this type of information attempt to inform the general public through online video blogging. Informative online video blogging is handled mostly by people who do know what they are doing. This is because there can be some serious repercussions for people who spread the wrong information around.
3) Business – there are those who engage in online video blogging mainly for profit. Online video blogging is a great method of covertly advertising products. This is effective because people who watch the video blog are rarely aware of the fact that a product is actually being advertised. This means that people who are paying attention to the other contents of the video blog will not be able to reject the advertisement for what it is. They will be more susceptible to the objective of the advertisement.
There are also people who are able to make online video blogging itself into a profitable business. They are able to make entries of such high quality that people are actually willing to pay for them. There are also people who engage in online video blogging in order to increase traffic in their websites and thus, encourage advertisers. As many people know, advertising is one of the main sources of income on the internet.
4) Entertainment – some people who engage in online video blogging do so in order to hone their skills at making movies. Through the various software available today, every person has the potential of making a movie that can be enjoyed by everyone. What does the movie-maker get out of this? Well, some do it for fun, others do it in order to learn and others just have too much time on their hands.
Online video blogging, for the most part, is meant to be fun and to unleash the creativity that can be found within each person. So what are you waiting for? Switch on that camera!
