Blogging or Vlogging?
Start writing a post

Carrots 'N' Cak e Blogging has always been a popular thing to do. But over the past few years, vlogging has made its way into the hearts of many. It's just blogging, but instead of typing, you are recording everything or anything your heart desires. But which one is better?

Let's start with good ole' blogging. Blogging is a way to connect with people over a range of topics such as fashion, sports, lifestyle. Whatever you want- you name it. Blogging is also a way to connect with people who share the same interests as you or people who are looking for advice or looking for people who are going through the same thing as the blogger.

Blogging was created by Justin Hall in 1994 called Links.net. Hall talks about how his father was an alcoholic and gives more details about his early life. Hall continues to discuss his college life and keeps his blog updated as life goes on. From what it seems - Hall's last update seems to be made sometime in 2018.

Some of the most popular types of blogs are fashion, fitness, travel, or lifestyle blogs. For people who want a little style up and are on a budget, the budget fashionista blog has recommendations you need for low prices.

Some more popular blogs:

Carrots 'N' Cake

A Beautiful Mess

A Cup of Jo

A businesswoman and mom of who covers fashion, travel, beauty, design and pretty much anything and everything that her readers might relate to.

But due to the glorious internet always having new ways of sharing content, vlogging, video blogging, has been a popular type of blogging. It's easier since you can talk directly into a camera and share content that way instead of having to sit down and type everything out.

Vlogging is sort of a way to show more into people's everyday lives or to provide silly entertainment. Vlogging is most commonly found on YouTube. Many provide entertainment such as David Dobrik, Jenna Marbles, PewDiePie.

Other provide makeup help such as James Charles, Jeffrey Starr, Jaclyn Hill. Some other vloggers I love to watch are The Try Guys, Tyler Oakley, Liza Koshy, Kian and JC, Sam and Colby. There are tons of vloggers to choose and watch from- it's endless.

Which one do I love? Well, I love blogging because it's nice to read and look at pictures of different things and it's easier to hide and type then sit in front of a camera. But I also love vlogging because it's fun to see entertaining skits or YouTubers sitting down in front of millions of people and being vulnerable and reaching out to others to provide help.

It's almost as vlogging is more intimate in a way because you see them and their emotions. So, I may lean a little more towards vlogs, I apologize.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

6048

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4356

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
