A few years ago owning a blog was considered to be something extraordinary. You had to be a genius to set up a blog and write your own content. Not anymore. There are millions of blogs around the world, and people from all walks of life are starting to realize the value of blogging and sharing information with others. We have gotten to a point that writing articles is not enough to keep you at the top of the industry. These days, if you are not vlogging or have your own popular YouTube channel, you are missing out big time. A lot of regular bloggers still do not feel comfortable shooting their own videos, but those who have taken the chance have realized a lot of value.
So you want to get started with vlogging? If you are using WordPress, you better have a theme that supports videos. If you got started with blogging a few years ago, chances are you could not expect having videos on your website. If that's the case, your site is due for a re-design. Thankfully, there are many video-blogging templates that you can use to get started. Press75 and Revolution all have themes that you can easily customize to handle your own videos. Here is what you need to have on your vlog:
- a video place holder that allows you to import YouTube, Vimeo, and other videos easily.
- a set of links that allow your visitors to embed and share your videos on their own sites.
- your own flash video player to display the videos that you host on your website.
- a search-engine optimized code to help you get ranked higher for your content.
Of course, you will need to have video to post on your site as well. But chance are you already know how to shoot your own video and edit it. A top vlogging-theme makes it easy for you to share your content with others and go viral with them. You want to keep things simple and stay away from fancy bells and whistles and provide your users with distribution tools at the same time. Thanks to the WP community, you will not have to break the bank to get your hands on such a theme.
