What is vlogging?
As Steve Garfield says, a vlog is simply a video blog — a blog containing video. Vlogs come in all styles and flavors.
Now that broadband is becoming ubiquitous and the tools to create multimedia are becoming inexpensive and easier to use, the same democratic forces that drove blogging (there are now 24 million blogs) will eventually lead millions of us to communicate and tell stories through video blogs and podcasting.
There are already a number of folks who've taken the lead in championing videoblogging, including Michael Verdi, Steve Garfield, Jay Dedman (who started the Yahoo Groups videoblogging mailing list), Ryan Hodson, Josh Kinberg, Peter van Dijck, Michael Meiser, Josh Leo and many others.
The best way to get immersed into this community is to join the videoblogging mailing list (it's free). Subscribe to video blog RSS feeds with FireANT (again, free). Browse vlogs at MeFeedia and Vlogdir. For hands-on training, see Node101.
Go ahead. Get started.

There is a powerful movement in motion that will change how we all communicate and interact. Its great to see how so many are coming together in the community to help make this happen. Happy New Year!
