Video Blogging?


It’s been a busy summer for me! I’ve recently moved back to my hometown in Hot Springs, Arkansas, from Demorest, Georgia, and finally got settled back in and just kicked off fall semester in seminary last week.

Sorry I’ve been yet again unresponsive on the blog, but I’ll have to say the last few months have been a major learning experience during the move!

With that said, here’s a little predicament I’m in, but might actually turn out to be a fun new adventure for my blog posts. First of all, I’m really wishing to blog at least once a week or every other week. It’s something I enjoy doing, and I love blogging and sharing information with you.

However, typing up long blog entries on a regular basis is time consuming, and really more time consuming than what I have time for.

So I’m wanting to come up with a better solution. I’d like to get your thoughts on it.

I’m considering starting a weekly or every other week “video blog” right here. It’ll feature all the same content I’m wanting to put into written form, but in a more interactive, visual way. It’s also much less time consuming for me to shoot and upload a video each week or every other week than it is to type out a blog entry in written format.

What I would be doing is each week or even every other week, from my office, shoot the video and upload it either to YouTube or Vimeo (I can talk with Tom and see what the best format would be), then embed the video in a blog post here so it shows up on the blog and in the searchable index.

It’s a way that’ll allow me to continue to share great content with you often, allow me to reduce the time in sharing the information with you, and be more visual and interactive along the way.

What are your thoughts? Are you interested in my starting a video blog? Any suggestions or comments?
