There aren’t too many options for me for my blog to evolve off the page. Since my blog is basically off of current events, I don’t think a book would work, or a magazine, and definitely not a movie (who wants to see a movie about the New Jersey Devils, anyway?!). Since I’m not sure if I plan on keeping my blog around after this class is over, I highly doubt I would do anything anyway. But if my blog ever adapted to being off the page, I think a vlog would be the most likely because it’s an easy, seamless transition from a blog. A good deal of sports blogs I visit have vlogs (whether it’s about the specific team it covers or the league/sport in general). Even ESPN has vlogs! The downside, though, is that I don’t really know how to edit videos, I don’t really have that much time to do vlogs, and I don’t know how exciting my vlogs would actually be. Oh, well.
Respond in a post on the course blog: If your blog could evolve to something off the page (doesn’t necessarily have to be a book or a magazine), what could you see it becoming?
I think my DIY blog would be best suited to a vlog- not necessarily my face and me talking about the crafts, but just filming as I do them step by step. This would probably be the best actually, more than a written blog. it would probably be easier for users to follow along and see exactly what I am doing. However, if you try to follow along you either have to keep pausing or try to remember what I am saying. So maybe a little list of the steps in the description of the video would work best. I love watching youtube videos of how to do crafts. Strangely I have never seen youtube cooking videos, so maybe the cooking half of my blog would get a lot of views. Now I will have to look up cooking youtube videos after class… There are probably so many great videos and ideas out there of food! I try to be a little funny sometimes in my blog to stay interesting but in real life no one ever laughs at me so I don’t think my vlog would be popular 😦
