Video blogging has a lot of advantages over text-based

blogging, and it is little wonder that this new

technology is catching on all over the globe. Video

blogs very effectively grab the attention of web surfers,

and people are much more likely to become excited

about the dynamic content of a video blog than they are

likely to find a written posting very thrilling. The more

enthusiastic viewers are about a site, the quicker the

word of mouth spreads, and the more traffic the site will

get.

Of course, there are plenty of disadvantages to video

blogging as well. Hosting a v-blog requires quite a bit

of server space, which can make it difficult to get

started. It takes more time to process and upload a video

file than it does to dash off a quick bit of text, which

means that running and updating a video blog can be

quite a bit of work. In addition, web surfers sometimes

grow frustrated with the slow loading times of the files

on many video blogs. Whether you opt for a video blog

or not depends on what kind of subject matter you want

to cover, and how much time you can devote to video

blogging. Before you decide to pursue a video blog,

consider if there is an easier way for you to get your

message across.
