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

Advice on foods, workout routines and living a well-balanced life.

Fit Bottomed Girls

Helping you brace your inner confidence while providing different kinds of cardio and strength workouts and much more to make working out more fun.

A Beautiful Mess

Shares DIY home decor projects, recipes, craft ideas, beauty ideas and stories about life.

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.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
