My wife has been planning on starting a vlog, and I completely support her on her endeavors.
In fact, I have been helping in a lot of behind-the-scenes development, such as banner and logo design, tips on gaining subscribers, ways in organizing content, and also some cinematography tips and tricks.
Fortunately, running a vlog is not that different from running a blog.
The steps to running a blog or vlog are as follows:
- Create a blog (or vlog)
- Churn out content
- Build up your subscribers
- Repeat steps 2 and 3
However, all these planning, and little action can be a bit frustrating. Though, I have to admit, she has little experience to content production, so I have to be a bit more understanding. After all, the hardest part of swimming in a pool can sometimes be dipping your feet in the water.
I have a trial-and-error approach to running things. Test it out, see if it works, and if it doesn’t, try something else. It helps in the learning process, at the very least.
With content production, I think this approach also helps. Make the content, then sort it out later. If you’re into writing, just write, then edit it up later. “Just Write” is tougher than it sounds. You don’t just tap out random words and hope they make sense. Just write – but it has to make sense, be somewhat directed to a point, and anything that is not useful, can be edited out.
In any case, when the inspiration to write hits – just go with it.
Although, I guess, this could be depending on the person… So, whatever works for you?
