Is Vlogging For Me?

First off, what is vlogging? My best definition is putting your blogs on video. That’s pretty much it in a nutshell. You upload a clip to a host site and share it. I have done a couple of vlogs but haven’t decided if this is for me. I didn’t realize how difficult it is to listen to yourself. You must be creative, build an audience and stay focused.

I am beginning to investigate this, and this allows me the ability to look back at my good and bad days. We have always heard a picture says a thousand words. It can describe if I’m having a bad flare if my knees are buckling or just having pain that day. I can describe my pain level when it is at a 10.

How do I get a followers for my Vlogs?

I would say do the same thing you do to get bloggers. Find vloggers that are talking about what you are talking about and comment on their content. Set goals for yourself and be thrilling and exciting. You don’t want to put anybody to sleep.

Do you know what you want to vlog about?

Is it your health, food or just overall life changes?  There is so much to talk about, but my passions are psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I have over 55 years of experience in this field and know I have plenty to share.  Find out what’s trending that day; I always find myself clicking and liking a story that has touched me. I don’t think I will ever be that popular, but it would be nice to see my video pop up for others to like.

I just did my “professional” podcast with Health Union. What did I think at the end of it? I literally wanted to listen to it again. I was very impressed at how this showed me in a different light. I could feel my enthusiasm as I spoke. The feedback from this was overwhelming. I shared my story and encouraged and motivated others living with psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis. There are moments I get caught up in my pain that I can see what I can do to help others.

If my vlogging can help just one

When you live from day to day and never know when a flare will pop up vlogging can be helpful. I have presently started a new medication and I feel like a new person. I am in less pain and the inflammation in my body is coming to a halt.  I want to take this opportunity to vlog about a good having good days with this disease. We all have our good and bad days. We must encourage one another. I was speaking to a lady who said, Diane, it’s very difficult to be up when your body is always in pain. I could only tell her that there is a bright side. Maybe you can change your treatment option, sometimes medication just stops working. I am vlogging about what do you ask your doctor, make a list and stick to it.

After much thought and soul searching I know I can reach many though this platform. Knowledge is power, and information can be reached in so many homes. This will be powerful for me because I can help so many and that is my goal in life. This is the reason vlogging has become very important to me. I want to keep giving out information and it can be a life changer for many. Thank you Emily Downward for opening another door for me.
