To vlog or not to vlog?

That is the question I've been asking myself over the last few days. After watching and enjoying more and more parenting vlogs it's something I've been thinking that I could do myself.

Although video blogging isn't something to be taken lightly, there are some serious pros and cons to weigh up. One of the things I love the most about vlogging is the memories it creates, of course blogging does too but with a video you get so much more. Ava is growing at a fast pace and this year is such an exciting time for us with the wedding. I think it would be a great time to start recording it through video.

Another thing that I love is that it allows you to get to know the blogger/vlogger a little better. I love watching Youtube videos and think "oh yeah I like that too" or "so that's what she sounds like!". I think I'd be quite comfortable in front of the camera and I did media in College (many moons ago) so I'm sure I could bash something together with regards to the editing.

But then there are the cons!

I'd have to buy a vlogging camera as my DSLR doesn't record and I'm looking at around £90 for a decent one. Then I'd have to buy the editing software. And it's also time consuming, I've heard editing can take ages!

And maybe people wouldn't like it? They might think I was a terrible mother?! I'm not sure if I'd appreciate the criticism if I received any!

Is vlogging something you'd be interested in seeing me do? Does anyone have any tips or advice on this?
