Presenting the “Who Should Not Vlog” Vlog

Somehow, Perez Hilton breaks like 75% of the rules- he is the exception. 

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    So Lani – is Vlog just for “pretty people” – inquiring minds want to know?

    Enjoyed the video.

    Nope, vloggers can be ugly, just not scary. Hence Perez serving as the example- if a vlogger is grody, they should find a way to overcome it like dying their hair blue/pink.

    Glad you enjoyed!

    (PS: for the record, Perez is only ugly when he’s sportin’ the Holmes moustache)

    Add to the list of people who shouldn’t vlog:

    People who take gratuitous, offensive shots at other people.

    Cute, I watched it in spite of the warnings. For the second, or maybe the third year in a row now both video and podcasting are where it is at. I know this is true because the people who sell video and podcasting stuff to the re industry have been saying so and they tell me anyone can do it. Lani you are just wrong this time.

    lighten up- it’s all in fun 🙂

    proper production can make anyone a good vlogger (aka avoiding looking like you’re telling a horror story in the dark). 🙂
