So the question is – if I started to create video content – would you watch? Personally – it was a lot of work to get you guys (those of you left) to even check out or read my blog – BUT I’m soon to have the HTC Evo phone with a 4.3 inch screen, an 8 meg camera, and the easy of uploading videos through qik or youtube right from the phone.
So – if I uploaded vlog entries – would you bother watching? I’m not sure that I can maintain any level of content worth watching. I am a conversationalist. I enjoy sharing my life through short stories and entertaining those around me. But, would it be easier for me to create a video blog entry than it is to create a short post? Maybe.
I have thought about sharing my weight loss struggle in a video journaling fashion, but is that TOO personal? When I write, I often labor over the right words, the best phrasing, the exact description. I’ve even changed the wording of a post based solely on my inability to spell a word close enough for spell checker to even understand what I was trying to say. A video removes all of that dynamic.
Well – I’m sure I will still attempt some level of word smithing. The worst part of vlog entries is that unlike conversations, I have the ability to rewind and try again. Seriously – this is a bad thing because it causes me to spend a lot of time scripting my post – something I never do in casual conversation. And I think a good blog entry looks like a casual conversation.
Anyway – my question is – if I film it, will you watch it?
