Blogging or Vlogging?

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:

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.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
