This is more in-line with my take on it. By making your video public,  
you are "showing" it.

Even fine artists have "shows". Musicians have "shows".

I can't help but think that someone who walks around pointing a  
camera at them-self and then puts that up for the world to see is a  

I understand however the rejection of the word as it applies to this  
particular medium when people feel it may indicate something  
contrived, or planned out, when in most cases it does. Even when  
people capture something accidentally, they tend to make decisions  
from there about whether or not to "show it" or how to "edit it" to  
show it, etc.

Even if there is no intention behind the videoblogger "to show",  
isn't that what's happening?
