The phenomenon of weblogs arose in the early 90s of the XX century, when one of the Internet inventors of the Internet, Tim Bernes-Lee, created a website where he began to publish interesting news. The idea of an author's blog with the ability to comment on entries quickly became popular. A large number of people found it interesting to talk about their hobbies, share their knowledge, thoughts and observations with other Internet users. The rapid development of modern computer technologies has made it possible to quickly upload not only texts and photos to the network, but also videos, which led to the creation of video blogs.
A video blog (abbreviated vlog) is a type of blog in which the main content consists of video materials.
One of the reasons for the widespread use of video blogs and their advantage over traditional text recordings is that video effectively replaces photos and text, keeps attention on itself and allows you to transmit more information in a short time.
The main advantage is that creating a video blog on YouTube is free and easy. Moreover, it can become a way to earn good money over time.
