While it is possible to set up a vlog site most of the bloggers post their content on YouTube since it makes their videos easier to discover. Moreover, YouTube offers unlimited free video hosting that means vloggers can easily post videos without paying web hosting fees. In order to create a video blog, all you need is a high-quality video camera, Internet connection, and of course a good idea. While a cell phone camera can get the job done, a standalone high-definition video camera will produce much higher quality videos.

This helps your audiences know when new videos will be available that makes them more likely to remain to visit your vlog.
