Wasn't it the case that  "blog" once implied personal but eventually 
became a generic enough term such that personal or professional is not

There a problem with assuming the same thing will eventually happen with
"Vlog"? I mean, I think that reacting with wild negativity to being
associated with the term only hampers the process of the term/the medium
getting to the point of being taken seriously.

That said, I hope I don't have to get overweight to become a respected
