Why Vlogging Is Important
Vlogging has come a long way. I remember when I first started vlogging. It was with a Kodak zi8 and then I saved up and upgraded to use a Canon T3i with one of those giant gorilla pods.
I’ll be totally honest, I was uncomfortable at first using that giant rig but after doing a few videos I didn’t care any more.
Everywhere I went people asked me questions. Are you a “YouTuber”, what are you filming and it was different at first for others to see that and nowadays it’s common. Just about anywhere you go you might see someone taking selfies, Face-timing or recording themselves dancing or doing whatever.
I had my reasons for vlogging back then as I was always trying to push the envelope and be on the forefront of and things. And I tell ya what, I am glad did and because of that I was able to get recordings of my kids when I will always cherish.
But now back to why you should be vlogging and why it’s so important.
