    This post is very helpful. One of the major reasons I never make a video for my blog is because I stutter a LOT and I don’t always plan it. I also have a question: how long do you think a video should be? And is it alright to use a lot of vocabulary? I know you mentioned that repeating a word over and over is awkward, but many of my readers are foreigners.

    Great work, I would like to know what kind of camera you use in your videos, and if you can give some tips about good cameras that we can use, for both photos and videos.

    I’ve done 72 video blogs for Adored Austin, and my biggest tip is for people to just do it and not to expect perfection from yourself: just be genuine.

    I don’t know if I agree with Nubia about using a thesaurus or a script with a video blog. I have never done this (but of course, I don’t do “super serious/ I’m an expert” video posts). Personally, I just love seeing bloggers on video and wish people did them more often! I don’t really care if a blogger says “um” or “like”. I just like when I can get a feel for who the blogger really is, ums, likes and all. :0)

      Agreed Indiana! That’s why I love live streams. They’re more organic. I say the best advice is to have a glass of champagne and relax, love what you’re talking about, and have fun.

    Nubia has some good tips but I feel like you shouldn’t look down while you’re reading a script and you should just relax. Poorly delivered prepared statements are not my favorite. I am with Indiana. I would much rather straight from the heart than poorly rehearsed. I also really think people should look at the camera. It’s so hard to connect with someone if they aren’t looking at the camera. Those are my tips as someone who is in the video production industry.
