Vlog Channel?

Hello honey bunches!

It's been almost 2 months since I last posted. My laziness has reached an all time high. Or perhaps, I'm not inspired any more. Either ways, I find it totally frustrating. I open this page to blog, then I close it back up again. I just can't bring myself to write anything!!! Which is why I must salute Atilola and Sisi Yemmie; two of the most consistent bloggers to ever do it! I don't know how you do it, but (in Jamaican Patois) RESPECK MUUN!

So, I've been thinking of turning vlogger for sometime now.

Why would you want to be a vlogger? Aren't you an anonymous blogger? Will you still be blogging? These are some of the FAQs that have come my way when I tell people that I am contemplating starting a vlog channel. So I will answer them now. Feel free to leave any other questions you  may have in the comments and I will answer each one.

1. Why I want to be a vlogger/have a vlog channel.

Many moons ago, and she may not remember she said this, but Toin had commented that I would make a great talk show host. So Toin, this one's for you. No! I'm kidding. But all my life, I've gotten comments on how great I would be hosting something on radio or on TV. I've always been a chatter box. I've always been a people person. Having this blog has showed me that I can reach people that have never even met me with my own brand of humour and give them my gist or tell them a story I came up with and they would absolutely get it! I love that you guys can vibe with me on here and I just want to explore another platform and see how that works for me. If people think I have hosting/MCing/Compeering in my blood, why not do it on my own terms and on my own platform? I hope with this little answer of mine, I have been able to adequately explain why I think I may want to start a vlog channel. Taink you.

2. Whether I am an anonymous blogger.

Well...yes and no.

I am inadvertently anonymous, I think. When I started this blog, the only people reading were family and friends. They knew who I was so I was by, no means anonymous. Imagine my great surprise, when people I didn't know started coming to the blog, reading AND commenting. THAT was a surprise. I didn't think anyone I didn't know would find anything I had to say interesting so I didn't even consider what my persona was; whether I was anonymous or nah. So I didn't start off wanting to be a character shrouded in secrecy. It just happens that people who read my blog do not know what I look like. So, that's that.

3. Whether I'd still blog if I start a vlog channel

Simply put... HELLS YEAHS!

This is where I found myself. Blogging saved me from myself on a a number of occasions, which is why it is frustrating when I can't write. But I am a blogger first and would always be.

So having said all of the above, what do you guys think? Will I make a good vlogger? Would you visit my vlog if I were to try my hand at vlogging? Do you have any tips and tricks for me on how to be a good vlogger? Will you contribute to a gofundme/kickstarter akant to buy me a camera for recordings? Hit me up. Have a lovely weekend. Oh and vote right, choose wisely, keep the peace and God bless Nigeria.
