So I’ve been thinking quite a bit about starting to put more video content on my blog. For those who remember, when I first started in the Domaining world video was my thing, I did what now feel like totally ridiculous talking head (or sitting in a chair) videos like the one below:
Yowza! Honestly, watching the first few minutes of that video made me cringe and the audio/video quality feels like I recorded it on a VHS tape 🤦♂️
So watching this video makes me think – yikes, let’s not do that again. At the same time, I know that it’s time for me to make video a more regular thing on my blog since that’s the way a lot of people around the world consume content, including me! While certainly plenty of people enjoy reading blogs, it’s no secret that online video consumption is growing like crazy, and I personally find myself watching a lot more video content online than I did in the past.
On top of all this, Domaining.com recently added a very cool feature where blog posts with video will show up directly in the feed. I think this is a smart move by Francois (who runs Domaining.com) and gives me yet another reason to get back on the video bandwagon.
All that being said, I want to make videos that people actually want to watch…so that’s where all of you come in. Let’s say I started out by trying to do a video a week, what would you want that video to be about? Would a talking head video drive you crazy? Would a screencast where I walk through a product or service be interesting?
I’ll hand the mic to you now, what video content would you like to see from me? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
