Video blogging: building rapport with the camera

Chou Notes

Being a good communicator and being a good video blogger are two very different skills. Communicating is as much reading people as much as it is talking. Building rapport is a lot more difficult when you are talking to a camera, so when we talk to the camera we subconsciously want some feedback. That’s why I tend to say “Right?” a lot more in my videos, to fullfil that unmet need of feedback.

I’m still working on this, but I promise eventually it will all be gone and I will become a good vlogger 🙂
