OK what is a VLOG?
You're 32 years old man! What are you doing with a VLOG?
Great, both valid questions, to an extent. Simply a VLOG is a video version of a BLOG. My version of a VLOG combines a video diary of interesting bits of my daily life as a Jazz musician that you might not otherwise get to experience from the outside, with some helpful (hopefully) practice tips, lessons and general Jazz based musings. Oh, and Cricket!
I have been VLOG-ing for about a year (I've just had my first VLOGiversary!!) and initially I started it for a few personal development reasons and to try and reach out and cultivate more of an audience for what I'm doing professionally. I've really enjoyed making them so far and have gained a lot from the experience, so come and join the 1000's of people who've viewed them and join my hundred or so subscribers to never miss an episode.
