Of late I have been observing more and more examples of video blogging, “vblogs” or “vlogs”. This makes me wonder if we have now officially entered a new phase in blogging.
With YouTube.com now being touted as the second largest search engine in the world (second only to Google.com), it is no wonder we are now seeing our legal industry clients working towards incorporating more videos into their websites and into their blogs.
It seems to me that we are becoming a more “visual” society with less time on our hands. I think we are more likely to watch a 3-5 minute vblog on a subject than we are to invest 10 to 15 minutes in reading about something.
Personally, I find that I am guilty of “speed reading” most blog posts and not really giving them the time and attention that I should. And I do find that a good vblog can get the important information across quickly and succinctly.
What are your thoughts? Would you rather read a post or listen/watch a post?
