What is VEDA?



VEDA is Vlog Every Day in August (or April).  A chance to make a video every day, for a month.  It's a great opportunity to help you figure out your YouTube Channel, practice using your camera or simply making a connection with your audience.

What now?  
  • Sign-up, tell us about you and where we can see your videos.
  • Check-out or even subscribe to others on the list.  Follow them on twitter too.
  • Upload your video on the 1st! Then post everyday.
  • Talk about anything you want.  (need help see our list of ideas)
  • Use #VEDA on Twitter to meet other vloggers.
  • Follow, comment, engage.  The more you do, the more you get.
Things to keep in mind:
  • Think of what you're going to say before you start.
  • Keep your videos short and sweet (under 5 minutes)
  • Look into the camera, like you're talking to a friend.
  • Keep it simple, limit background and other distractions.
  • Feeling adventurous, try editing your vlogs.
  • Just be you!
If you've ever wanted to try your hand at YouTube this is a great way to start.  Don't think about, just do it.  If you're waiting for things to be perfect, they never will.   Just think of it, at the end of the month, you'll have 30 days of content out there.

If you’re participating in VEDA this month, leave a comment with your YouTube channel name, website, and Twitter handle, so we can all check out each other’s videos!
Go here to follow other VED-erites (that's what I like to call all the peeps participating)
