mamaV's video blogging tips

I started my YouTube channel on a total whim. Back in 2006, I saw my first episode of America’s Top Model, and flipped my lid.

Thinking about video blogging yourself? Go for it! Here are a few tips from an old pro;

RULE #1: Who cares what you look like
If
you are going to prim and pluck before starting the camera rolling –
forget about it. Be yourself, be real, becaues that is what people want
to see.

RULE #2 Post the first take
Every single video
you see of mine is the first take. I don’t mess around, nor should you.
Start rolling, have your say, and post it. No looking back.

RULE #3 No editing
Trust
me, you are going to babble on some videos, but let it go. Your videos
will be more authentic if you don’t edit them – let it out there flaws
and all.

RULE #4 Have fun!
Give it a try, and have fun
– if you find you are not having fun and you are instead all stressed
out over your videos – hang it up. Perhaps video blogging is not for
you. Try a blog instead!

Good Luck!
