Blogging

As blogs are free and easy to publish, no complicated and technical knowledge is required for it. There are many free platforms for blogging like Blogger, WordPress, Wix. You need not to invest any money for it. A newbie can setup his blog without hard efforts. Everything is readymade. Very few steps and some clicks are required only.

If you have hobby and skill of writing, your words can make living for you. You will have to optimize your blog and you will need to make it suitable for search in search engines (through SEO). Advertising and Affiliate marketing are prime sources to earn through blogs.

Negative side of Blogging

– It is hard to keep loyal readership on blog.

– Good knowledge of SEO is required to make blog in search on search engines.

– It is really hard job to attract visitors on a blog

-There is a neck to neck competition on each topic.

-You need to consume good amount of time in searching and writing posts.

-You have to regularly update the blog to engage readers.

– It is a tough job to keep the interest of the readers for long time.

– Writing appealing and captivating by an individual is a steely challenge.

Vlogging

The motto of Vlogging is same to share experiences, views and information; sometimes, giving suggestions and advices. The process of Vlogging is approximately same. Creating a Vlog is not a cumbersome job. Here you need some equipment to shoot your videos. You have to present information by facing camera. You have to set up any video site (Youtube, Dailymotion, Vemeo etc.) account. To shoot a video, you need a good camera, a mike, tripod, editing software and a good place. You can publish a video easily.

You can avoid writing here. You should have good communication skills and enough confidence to show yourself before the world. If topics are interesting and catchy, Vloggers become popular. Vlogs attract good traffic. Here you are working on established platform so attracting audience is not a big issue as compare to a blog. As subscribers increase, you will be successful and popular vlogger.

Negative side of Vlogging

The downside of Vlogging is investment over equipments. In order to record high quality videos, a vlogger needs DSLR camera. A good DSLR camera rate starts from Rs. 40,000. You should have good knowledge of editing. Buying editing software is another problem. Good editing software can cost Rs. 7000-15000. You have to invest good amount of money (Near INR 70,000 to 1, 00,000) to start a Vlog. It may be disturbing if you are not pro-vlogger.

Another drawback of Vlogging is that it does not allow you to edit a vlog video after publishing online.  In case of any error, you need to unpublish and then edit it. Whereas, you can change any post of blog anytime without unpublish it. Vlogs are very time consuming in compare to blog. You need to spend near 3-5 hours to make a catchy Vlog.

As blogging required good writing skills, in Vlogging you should have good communication skills. Otherwise, Vlogging will be not interesting and attractive to keep audiences engaged.
