If you just like to share just one post, then it does not need any skill and doesn’t expect many views. If you like to consider vlogging seriously, then you need proper technical skills about operating cameras, editing videos etc. Similarly, if you like to excel in blogging, you need to improve your writing skills.
Topic: Starting a blog or vlog depends on the topic chosen. Certain topics are good to be written and certain topics are best to be shot using the camera.
