I've been spending a lot more time on Youtube than on my blog. I always teach my blogging students that making a video is the easiest way to create content but to blog and create content on their own blogs.
You probably disagree with the statement about because shooting, editing and producing a video seems like a lot of work. And you'd be right, but if you look past that initial investment in time and effort you'll notice that a video can be reused many times over.
A video can be transcribed for search engine benefits. A video can be split into shorter highlights for Instagram or Twitter. A video can be uploaded to more sites than Youtube. A video can help you retain viewership on your blog longer. There are a half dozen other good reasons to start a piece of content with a video so that's what I've been doing.
I've been teaching this principle for years, but only recently did I start putting it into practice for my own stuff. As you can see on my blog, many of my recent blog posts are based on a video.
I made this short video to thank all of you that have subscribed and helped me reach 1500 subscribers. Although it is not a big number, I'm thankful and grateful for each one of you.
I also talked a little bit about getting old and all the youth wasted in the young. Even if it's late for the blog. If you aren't a subscriber, you can just hit the subscribe button directly below this video, or head over to my channel and subscribe there.
