How to Vlog Like a Pro!

I have been wanting to get into vlogging and through watching bloggers like Jody Jelas, I noticed the ‘fancy’ vloggers all have a short, but professional intro. Setting out to find an easy to use and cheap (read free) program which makes great videos was proving hard to find. Well, until Zippy from Champagne Living told me about Animoto.

  • Love this! SOOOO easy and I can’t wait to test it out. You’ve done it again girls:-)

  • Emma says:

    Very nice post! I’m trying to put videos on my blog, so this will help me improve my videos.

  • Shell Ann says:

    Animoto looks great . I have just started video blogging again decided to take on the 90 day video blog challenge where you are suppose to do a video everyday. I have always a nice intro to my videos to make my videos more like a tv show then just an uncut video. even though having uncut videos can be fun since they show my natural state.

  • This is sooo cool, I can count endless ways to use this! thanks so much!!

  • This post couldn’t be more on time. I just bought a tripod and have decided to give vlogging a try. I’ll take all the tips I can get.

    Your article is very good it helped me a lot in the current job and my life again. Thank you.

  • Sonia says:

    I use to be pretty shy with this until I started. I was challenged to do it from a contest with another blogger and the rest is history. I have more to go, but it helps to break up the monotony when you don’t want to write a post and people like the idea of getting to know the author behind the blog. They get to see your personality and its nice to hear their voice.

    Oy. I’m working on my relationship in front of the camera… but this is something I’d like to do going forward. I just love to watch other bloggers vlogging so I need to man up and learn how to do it right. Thanks for this!

  • Lisa says:

    Love Animoto… we use it to send custom birthday videos for friends and family… so fun!

  • Allie says:

    I just “re-launched” my blog site and it’s on fitness and twin parenting. I link my fitness videos through YouTube but I would like to be able to have them “live” on my blog. GREAT POST!!!

  • Kristen says:

    I am DEFINITELY not comfortable on camera, so I’m still hesitant about vlogging. I do enjoy watching the vlogs that other people create, so maybe one day I’ll work up the nerve to do one.
