Family Vlogging is all the rage right now, with countless families all over the world providing hilarious, helpful, and informative information through videos showcasing the styles of their families and lives. More families than ever are starting family vlogs on youtube with hopes of achieving different things.
Reasons can range from making money through videos and adverts, gaining a massive amount of followers and becoming famous online like the Shaytard family, who are basically the pioneers of family vlogging, or simply just making their mark on the internet and sharing the lives of their family.
A Few More Notable Family Vlogs
The rise of vloggers has essentially redesigned what it means to be a celebrity. Anyone can be an online celebrity with interesting, entertaining video content and a solid base of followers that continues to grow. Unlike traditional celebrities, vloggers share far more personal experiences with their fans, or “friends” as most vloggers refer to their fan base.
Vloggers open up their homes and invite viewers into their lives, making it much easier to identify with them. Family vlogging takes this a step further and includes the entire family in the videos. Children in the families are often the stars of the videos, being recorded daily as the parents capture funny, embarrassing, and cute moments of their kids.
Do You Want To Expose Your Family To The Entire World, Good And Bad?
There are several things families must consider when starting a family vlog on youtube though – are you and your family comfortable with sharing your lives, and children, online to the whole world, where anyone can see them? That’s a cause of concern for some family vloggers, that the security of the child stars in these videos could be placed in jeopardy.
Family vlogging on youtube isn’t going anywhere anytime soon though, in fact more and more families are venturing into the world of vlogging and capturing priceless moments that can be saved forever and shared with the world. It’s hard work though. Even the “overnight sensations” had to start somewhere, and managing a successful vlog on youtube is more than just recording a video and posting it online. Networking, advertising and marketing, planning videos and content, and consistently updating and managing several social media pages to keep their followers coming back for more is necessary.
Family Vlogging Is Real Work & Harder Then It Looks
Being a successful family vlogger is a long process which takes hard work and patience, but there are a few things you can do to help your vlog along. Creating a sense of community within your vlog by communicating with followers who comment on your videos can do wonders. Viewers want to join in to a conversation with the vlogger, and responding to your followers and engaging with them will bring them back for more and draw in new friends to share your life with.
