What do upcoming years hold in store? Nobody knows for sure, but we can make some pretty educated observations. I would like to offer mine. Feel free to add yours in the comments.
Video blogging will be bigger than ever
More bloggers will start doing video.
Online video sites like YouTube will expand their services.
New online video services and applications will appear for direct recording and editing.
Many smaller video sharing sites will die off, consolidation will begin.
Why you should learn how to create a YouTube channel? Everybody’s doing video. So video blogging is going to be hot in the upcoming era. How do you get started? What do you need to know?
Mobile blogging will become super hot
Mobile blogging will become super hot
Mobile blogging and video blogging will continue to converge (Qik is an example).
More bloggers will be concerned about how their blogs look in a mobile browser.
Travel blogging and news blogging will see growth.
Blogging itself will continue to spread and transform
Blog’s will continue to transform itself into the new journalism. Old journalists will continue to be bitter about it. More journalists will become bloggers.
The design of blogs will continue to evolve as aspects of blogging weave their way into “normal” websites. So the explosive growth of magazine and news style WordPress themes will continue.
Bloggers will play a bigger role.
I think there will be rapid growth in business blogs compared to personal blogs as social networking takes over for blogging in some ways.
The relationship between social networks and blogs will continue to evolve as new tools and services appear. So blogs will become more social, incorporating some of the functions of social networks.
Care to add your thoughts in comments……
Video blogging is going to be hot in the upcoming era. How do you get started? What do you need to know?
What You Need to Begin Video Blogging
A video camera or a webcam
Software or online service to edit video
Service to distribute your video
One can use a camcorder and put the video on your computer, or, in some cases, you can record the video right to your hard drive, depending on your setup. Personally, I use a decent webcam. I don’t go for fancy videos that need separate sound. Use the webcam’s built-in microphone.
If you are starting out, stick with the basics or you’ll be overwhelmed. One of the issues with video blogging is that it’s time-consuming.
Let’s check how to create a youtube channel.
How to Create YouTube Channel – Video Editing
For example, you have two choices: online video editing, or software video editing on your computer. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Online video editing is still relatively new but will get better and more powerful results.
For computer software, there is Windows Movie Maker and Apple’s iMovie for free software. I don’t have a Mac and I don’t know a thing about iMovie.
I have been using Windows Movie Maker and it is getting a little old. Nowadays, I am starting to not like it, but it’s easy to learn and is great for an absolute beginner.
Sure, you can just record a video and never edit it at all, but it probably won’t turn out very good if you do it that way.
Video editing in software involves cutting, rearranging, and adding titles or effects to your video. You can add music or other sounds to your video, such as narration.
How to Create YouTube Channel – Distribute Video
How will you get your video to others so they can watch it?
First of all, there are basically two ways to do this: Use an online distributor, such as YouTube, or put the video on your own webserver (if you have one).
YouTube is just plain easy. And, it has the bandwidth, reach, and longevity.
(YouTube ain’t going out of business any time soon, but you never know with smaller companies).
There are over a hundred different online video tools and services to choose from. Right now, I just stick with big owl YouTube.
Again, it’s just ridiculously easy. I like easy. Once your video is uploaded to YouTube, you can embed it in your own blog posts easily.
Then just copy the embed code and paste it into the code view of your blog’s post writing form.
You can upload videos directly to Blogger blogs and WordPress blogs, but WordPress needs a plugin to be able to display the video.
Similarly, I would rather have my videos be embedded by other bloggers who want to share my videos, so I use YouTube.
Although many of us create videos for various reasons. Some of us want to store memories and some for other reasons. But sometimes we cant store it for a long time for many reasons.
Especially, YouTube stores all your videos and most importantly it gives an opportunity to earn money with your videos.
How to Create YouTube Channel – A Great Platform
Furthermore, YouTube is a great platform if you are looking for a safe place to store your videos. It’s an online platform that allows you to save videos without charging any cost.
Above all you have to do is make all your videos public and apply for monetization. Then YouTube will review your channel and who knows you might earn good money with your videos.
Also, learn how to rank your videos using long-tail keywords & to get traffic
