Why I Think Blogging Is Still Better Than Vlogging

Choose your voice. Your media.

There is an unwritten rule in the spoken verse that one has to always send the right message to an audience in order to be effective.

For the generation vloggers, vlogging is a great way to not only find avenues to speak, but reach an audience to connect with similar interests.

And it’s really great because videos that are fancily edited really show the creativity of our current vloggers. It’s a vlogging mine for ideas out there.

Meekly this writer would like to stay in the written word of sharing ideas.

Because I think blogging is good enough for a writer who doesn’t necessitate a video to complement her ideas in order to be understood.

For those who are simply curious why bloggers prefer to write content and present content without videos (although I cannot speak for the rest of all of bloggers), here sharing thoughts about this question:

THE REASONS BLOGGING MUST STAY

THINK VERSUS EMOTIONS.

Writing for a blog is much more analytical. It requires deeper thought and a fluency of ideas.

Vlogging in my own opinion, is more conversational and relatable to audiences hence, it appeals more to emotions.

While writing for a blog can be more cerebral.

VERSATILITY OF LANGUAGE.

With blogging, one can sway from formal tones to conversational language. And one can also write lengthily just as one would wish.

BLOGGING CAN VEER AWAY FROM SLAPSTICK PRESENTATION.

Admit it, vlogging can be pretty entertaining. It can present a variety of genre, in one episode.

Hosts and vloggers can actually flex their versatility and show their comedic skills while tackling serious issues.

Or they can repackage a seemingly mundane idea and make it more useful to their vlog followers.

Those challenges that vloggers can come up with are as creative as slapstick programs we often see on television. But it actually works for their followers.

With blogging, style of presentation is more flat, direct and idea-specific. It doesn’t need gimmickry or fancy dialogues in order to be accepted.

You can simply switch from reading a written content to another, without being served with a lot of special text and sound effects.

IT STAYS TRUE TO ITS SELF-EXPRESSIVE STANCE.

Blogging roots back to the middle of decade 2000, when social media is just at its infancy stage in the country. And the ordinary are looking for ways to express their opinion or to be heard by others.

And it does not need commercial support in order to stand.
