a blog, channel, or feed that features videos rather than text or images.
to maintain or add posts to a vlog.
So you want to start a vlog.
Vlogging is a fantastic way to document your life, business, brand, and anything else you could possibly think of.
It’s increasing in popularity, too.
Have you noticed that many of the biggest channels on YouTube are either mostly or completely based on vlogging?
Check YouTube’s trending page, and you’ll probably see some vlogs.
The vlog is here to stay.
You’ve thought about vlogging.
You’ve sat on your couch thinking about what you’d even try to record, and yet something’s holding you back.
“I don’t really have anything
worth sharing.” – You, probably
But what if I told you that was untrue?
Hey there! I’m Cory Miller.
I started vlogging on a whim. No goal, no direction, and no equipment. I just wanted to do this thing people called “vlogging”.
Heck, when I approached my wife about starting a vlog, she literally said, “Do you have to?”
It was hard. I showed up for 78 days, every single day, and produced a video for my YouTube channel. A daily show while having a family, a full-time job, and working on moving to another country.
Eventually I moved to a weekly schedule. I began to develop techniques, things to save time during filming and editing. I planned, I made mistakes, and I pressed on.
I didn’t even know if it would be worth it.
Spoiler: It was.
Vlogging is part of my life now, it’s simply part of what I do, and the personal benefits have been incredible.
I’ve lived all around the world with my wife and two daughters, and I have a weekly vlog about my international life, travel, and personal journey through this world.
I want to help you find and tell your story through vlogging, whether you’re doing it on your own, building a brand, or wanting to start a vlog for your business.
When I first started vlogging, I had no idea what I was supposed to record.
In fact, starting was the hardest part.
I claimed I was trying to figure out my style, the kind of content I’d be making, how to get great quality…but actually, I wasn’t really doing anything but procrastinating.
Why is it so hard to get started with a vlog?
I can think of a number of reasons:
- Lack of confidence
- Lack of ideas (or too many!)
- Thinking you need specific gear
- Thinking you need a specific type of personality
I could go on. Seriously, I had to stop myself from writing out dozens more bullet points.
That’s what held me back.
I was watching video after video, trying to figure out how to match styles of my favorite vloggers.
I had no idea where to even begin. I had no idea what my goals were, or why I even wanted to get started in the first place.
Eventually I did get started. Now here I am, many years later, and the process of vlogging has become part of my weekly routine.
