From movies and entertainment, to the latest fashion craze blogs, vlogs, and any other “log” you can think of, are becoming more and more popular.
Blogs and vlogs can be used by anyone for just about anything. Whether you want to post photos on Tumblr or simply write about your day or interests on Word Press, you just have to find your niche and get started.
Let’s begin by talking about photo blogs like Tumblr, that’s where I got started. You can get an account, have a fun layout and come up with a funky name for your blog about whatever you want. I started out with just a random photo blog with pictures of things I am interested in, mostly Harry Potter and Big Time Rush, my blog is called Pork n’ Beans, pretty random like me.
There are a lot of popular blogs and vlogs out on the internet. One of my favorite vloggers is Jenna Marbles. My friends and I love watching her new videos every Wednesday. She talks about everything and gives funny outlooks on different subjects.
The first video I watched of hers that got me hooked was “How to avoid people you don’t want to talk to,” greatest video ever! “Just give em’ the face!” I literally quote this video at least twice a week.
So switching gears to blogs, one popular blogger is Perez Hilton with “Perez Says.” He’s a celebrity gossip blogger and has all of the latest news on whose going crazy and who’s hooking up. Pretty juicy stuff if you ask me.
In the movie “Julie and Julia,” Julie Powell blogs every day for a year following Julia Childs cook book. She talks about how she had never poached and egg and how difficult it was and about burning a stew that was supposed to cook all day.
Bands and artists also blog, one of my favorite bands, We Came As Romans, recently went on tour and did a tour vlog. They talked with bands they were touring with and asked fans to send in questions and they would answer them on the next video, along with behind the scenes footage of course.
Whether you’re blogging or vlogging you can put what you know and love online for others to see, you just have to get started and commit.
