De first time I filmed myself, I found it terrifying. In the meanwhile, it feels all natural for me: I find video a nice way to connect with others. At the moment 25.000 people watch my daily stories on an average basis. 80% is female and between 25-45 years old. In total, I have 49.000 followers.
Why are you vlogging?
A few years ago I started because I wanted to develop cameraskills: how could I learn to present myself on video in a easy and spontaneous way?
Besides, it feels like a warm community with like-minded people on my Instagram and I am able to share my interests, business tips & tricks and journey of self development.
I also want to vlog: how can I do that?
1. Stand facing a window, with the light falling on your face. Lighting is very important.
2. If you are very nervous: walk through the room while talking. Walking gets you out of your 'head'.
3. Keep it short. A story on Instagram is 15 seconds: do not keep on talking, but get to the point fast.
4. Block and remove followers that make you nervous about 'seeing' your content. People often stop because 'that ex-girl- or boyfriend' might have an opinion about it. Screw that. Live your best life ;-).
