What does make a "good" vlog? Well, to me one thing is clear: if you love what you are doing it will certainly show in your videos.
If your friends are talking about your vlog at a party something must be going right... If the Apple store calls you up and ask you if you are using Final Cut Pro and would like to give a talk about the bloody program... If you are meeting people online, developing this new type of relationship with folks you have never met yet you seem to share the most common interests with...however they might live 7000 plus miles away... If you yourself can actually see your vlog taking shape, becoming something totally different from what it was when you started making videos... Time-video length has become a delicate thing for me recently...7 to 10 minutes can be a lot to ask of a viewer, however as long as you are presenting something that is remarkable...and when I use the word remarkable...I mean people will leave comments, anyhow, thanks to Quicktime, you can jump forward if you find the need...have yet to get a comment that reads, Dear Mr. Bicycle Sidewalk, Your videos are too long, please make them shorter!
