Should You Start a Video Blog?
I’ve read so much about how video blogs are the next big thing. I swore I’d never do that. I mean, come on. I’m old, I’m fluffy, I don’t think well on my feet, don’t know anything about the tech involved, and I say ‘anyway’ all the time. Oh, and I’d have to do my hair and makeup. Other than that, sign me up!
But then a few things happened. I read that in January 2016 Facebook announced there are more than eight billion video views and more than 100 million hours of video watched on the platform daily.
That’s an amazing stat, but it doesn’t negate even one of my arguments above.
Then I ran across this video:
Oh my God. I’ll bet I’ve watched that 9 times by now, and she has almost a million hits on it (more, after today, I’ll warrant). Do I judge her for being goofy? Hell no. She’s badass.
Dammit, this woman just negated all my arguments.
I eased into this the same way I convinced myself to write my first book – I’d write the book, get it out of my system, then hit delete! NO one would ever have to see it. Boom.
