Alternatively known as a vodcast, vlog, or video blogging, vlogging is a blog where someone (vlogger) discusses their interests, what's on their mind, or something personal. Today, many of the blog services (mentioned on the blog definition) also support vlogs. YouTube is the most popular vlogging service.

How is a vlog created?

A person creates a vlog using a laptop camera or a webcam that's connected to their computer. Once the video is created, it can be uploaded to a website like Facebook or YouTube to be seen by others. A vlog can also be created using the smartphone camera to record a video and uploaded the video through an app on the phone.


Most people don't have the patience to watch a long vlog, so long videos should be edited using video editing software to edit out the boring parts.
