Blog vs Vlog

  • I make weird mouth noises when I talk
  • Video and text are different mediums and they may each be good at certain types of content, which I will find out gradually
  • Writing has a place in video-making. It makes thoughts clearer before they are presented audio-visually
  • Interweaving snippets of daily life with talking head snippets is a simple and effective structure for keeping attention (though I still need a lot of practice to execute this well)
  • Publishing a video puts more (of myself) on the line than a blog post, but that’s no reason not to try!
