    Thinking About Starting a Vlog on Youtube. Opinions?







    I actually used to have one with 200+ subscribers started, but that was back when I first started playing guitar
    and wanting to do something generally cool.

    Since then, I'm down to 28 subscribers who still message once in a while asking if I'll ever start back--
    to which I keep saying "maybe?"....



    So, what do you guys think?

    Would you subscribe if I had a guitar-playing & singing, guides/how-to, and other misc. videos?

    Also, I'd be glad to advertise Ck while I'm at it.

    Well what are you going to talk about?

    As much as I know you love the MJ,
    I find those vlogs on YT where the vloggers just smoke from their bong for 5-9 minutes before saying, "Oh shit, I'm fuckin' high", then cutting the video - incredibly lame.

    LOL I would never, ever do that. My YT name doesn't even have a thing to do with the MJ either.
    I have a child, and MANYMANYMANY of my viewers would just flame me for being a mother who smokes.


    The blog will be a mix of things like viral video reviews, tutorials on various things (i.e; cooking, make-up, hair-styling, car-care tips, etc.),
    me doing covers of songs on the geetawr, and maybe a few speed-draw vids.

    Oh, well that's aight.

    Just know once you put your face (and name) out there on YT, you're anyone's game.
    From the admirers to the haters to the creepers to the demented.

    (you'll probably get a few dumb legit-Neopians coming to bash our cheating ways and questioning you as a person, for instance)

    If you want to be a successful YTer though, you'll need to be original. Something people haven't already seen, and something people like.
    And your vlogs will have to be well edited to look professional. If you want the subs in the thousands mark, that is.

    (I like your title gif.)

    Thanks!

    I guarantee I can give deh' peepulz what they want-- originality, that is.
    And I can also handle any haters/legiters that wanna hate.




    Thats actually my next question-- what program do you suggest I obtain/download/steal to edit my videos?
    My laptop has a built-in camera with HD quality, so I'm good there.

    It's a plan, then!

    I'm pretty sure I'll be working on an intro video for my channel this week, and take suggestions here for my first How-To/Tutorial video.

    Hanging up the M4 and sheathing the KA-BAR for a camera and feelings?!

    Who can I call 'soldier' then?!
    Who will protect cK's waters from idiocy using bursts of heavy sarcasm?!
    HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF ANYONE BUT YOURSELF?!
