Or worse, you can’t figure out what people will be interested.
Well, if you’re not sure where to start, here are a few existing methods that might give you a kick‐start idea.
VLOG: Blogging became popular not so long ago when people started using the internet as a diary, jotting down details of their everyday lives.
That morphed into the VLOG, the Video Log.
Vlogs are for people who look into the camera and ruminate on the day, on their lives, on politics, and different places they have been and things they have seen.
It requires nothing more than a webcam and a microphone and are often quite popular.

It’s a way for people who stay on the cutting edge to unbox and show off the latest tech craze and let the viewer decide if they want to have a part of it.
Simply bring home your newest toy or gadget and open the box on screen while at the same time giving your initial impressions of the item.

Everyone has an opinion, and viewers will want to know yours.
And whether they agree or disagree, they’ll tune in just to argue or to have their opinion verified.
