A Look At Resource Video Blogging

One of the things that ticks me off is when folks that should know better still refer to videoblogging as a just talking head or personality videos. Just as there is a diversity in text and photo blogging there is a very strong use of web video for educational, instructional and information sharing use.

It is always called a videoblog? No, and that is really ok. But outside of academia there is a whole bunch of instructional content.

Here are a few examples:

Cooking videos are as diverse as they come. Home spun or professional there are a ton of these types of resource videos

Daniel Delaney's What's This Food; Daniel will post a new food to him or his viwers every day in 2011. The show is supported by local or food specific advertisers.

The show is distributed in iTunes, YouTube and his own web site.


The Wood Whisperer has been going on for a while now.


Andrea Currie shows you how to make Russian Nesting Dolls

My point is sharing this is that there still is a problem of perception about what folks are doing with web video. It is not just the teen of the week singing(badly).

There is a range of resource web video producers who are changing the nature of instruction.

More to come, gotta go.
