Question: How do you make a video blog?
A video blog uses the same type of format as a regular blog. The difference is – you guess it – the video.
Adding videos in WordPress is easy. You have a few choices:
- Upload a video to youtube and use the embed code in a post
- Upload a video to youtube and use the “add video” shortcut button
- Host the video yourself and link to it
As for actually creating the video, there are too many possibilities to list here. Some people use their computer’s built in webcam, while others buy high-end video equipment and edit their videos like a professional. Most people fall in the middle someplace. The Flip video camera or the Kodak Zi8 are both excellent choices for video cameras under $200.
