How to Create a VLog and Perfect Your Editing Skills


The world of video is growing by the day.  Over 80% of consumers say that watching videos increases their understanding of a product, service, or brand.  One of the most popular forms of video is blogs, otherwise known as Vlogs or Video Blogs. 

So,  if you want to set up a vlog and create some funny skits…great! Traditional blogging is something that no longer works for most of us. With so much competition on the web, we must experiment and find new ways to grow our authority and engagement. You don’t need any fancy stuff to start a vlog. In this post I’ll cover each step:

1. Start a YouTube channel

The first step to creating a vlog is to create a YouTube channel. 

Once you’ve created your account, you will be asked for some basic information about yourself—which is standard for most social media accounts. After that, you can start uploading videos to your channel!

Now that you have a YouTube channel, you can start making content! The easiest way to get started is by filming yourself talking about a topic that interests you. You can also film yourself doing something interesting or funny—as long as it relates back to the topic of your vlogs!

After filming your video(s), it’s time to edit them so they look great. It may take some time at first, but with practice, editing will become easier and faster each time until eventually, it becomes second nature.

2. Write a script or outline

We’ve all seen the VLogs that seem to be filmed on a camera phone and have no editing. VLogs are a great way to share your brand with the world, but you want yours to stand out!

So how do you create a Vlog that looks professional? It all starts with a script or outline. The more organized your ideas are, the easier it will be for you to create a Vlog that makes sense and flows well. You can use bullet points or sentences in any order—just make sure it’s clear where you’re going next.

Once you have your script down, start filming! While shooting, remember: less is more! There’s nothing worse than watching someone talk for 10 minutes about something that could have been said in 15 seconds. Make sure each sentence has its own purpose and is saying something important. If not, cut it!

Once you have the footage from your shoot, it’s time for editing! Editing might seem like an intimidating task at first glance but with practice, it gets easier every time.

3. Invest in a camera and microphone

You can’t create a vlog without a camera and microphone. It’s simple: you need them to record yourself! There are plenty of options when it comes to cameras and microphones, so do some research and find one that suits your needs and budget.

If you’re just getting started with vlogging, we recommend starting with a point-and-shoot camera. This will allow you to focus on the content of your video rather than on how it looks. You’ll also want an external microphone for better sound quality.

4. Practice your vlogging

If you’re new to vlogging, start small and try to get the hang of it. Get a friend to record you, or try recording yourself in front of a mirror. If you can’t record yourself in front of a mirror, then just turn on your camera and start talking! You don’t need any fancy equipment or an expensive camera—just talk about anything that comes to mind for five minutes or so.

After that, review what you’ve recorded, and see where you could improve. Did your eyes wander? Was there too much dead air? Did you sound bored or excited? Whatever the problem is, keep working on it until it improves! Your viewers will appreciate the professionalism of someone who knows how to present themselves well on camera!

5. Upload videos on a regular basis

This is probably the most important thing you can do to improve your Vlogging. Having a consistent stream of content will help you establish your brand and grow your audience, which will lead to more views and followers.

Your first few videos should be relatively short—under 5 minutes—so that you can perfect your camera work and editing skills before making longer videos. Once you have gained experience in editing, try making longer videos.

You can upload your videos directly from your phone or use an app like Instagram or YouTube.

6. Find your niche

If you’re a passionate person, you probably have a lot of interests. Maybe you love cooking, or maybe you want to be a YouTuber, or maybe you just want to tell the world about how much you love cats. Whatever it is, it’s important that you find a way to narrow down your interests and focus on one thing.

The best way to do this is by asking yourself: “What am I actually good at?” It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of something new, but if you haven’t tried something yet, it’s hard to know what your strengths are. So instead of jumping right into something new right away, start by getting better at what you already know how to do!

Once you have an idea of your strengths, think about why they might be helpful in this new venture. For example: If your strength is making jokes and entertaining people—which is something that people enjoy watching—then maybe making videos, where you’re just being silly could be an excellent niche for your channel!

7. Edit like a pro

Editing is a huge part of becoming a successful vlogger. It’s not just about being able to record and make your video look pretty—it’s about making sure that the content is easy to understand and engaging so that people will keep coming back for more.

Here are some tips for editing like a pro:

1. Keep it simple. Don’t overcomplicate things. You don’t need to use fancy transitions or effects if they don’t fit with your brand or story. A black background with white text is often enough!

2. Keep the focus on you, not the camera. You want viewers to feel like they’re having an intimate conversation with you—not watching someone else’s show! So make sure you’re looking into the camera when you talk and only cut away when necessary (like when you’re showing something).

3. Use simple edits like cuts and use a video cutter for better results, or fades instead of complex ones like wipes or dissolves; they’re less distracting and easier to follow while still giving off the same vibe as more complex edits would have done anyway!


The best thing about vlogging is that it can be done from anywhere with a camera and an Internet connection. You also need to load up a video editor for your mobile device to produce decent-quality videos. You have to play around with the app, choose a theme that fits your style, and practice your skills. You won’t know how great you are at video editing until you take a leap and start doing it.

Well, I think we’ve covered a lot of ground in this guide, and hopefully, you have a better idea of how to make or start your own vlog, while providing some insight on the best way to film and edit. And although creating a vlog is not an easy endeavor by any means, it is something that can be done—by anyone willing to put in the time and effort.
