So yesterday I sat down and did a vlog and was shocked when I was done to see it was 8 minutes long! Really 8 minutes, it didn’t seem like I talked for that long but I should know better because well I really love to talk. Talk, talk, talk. Once I get started, there is no telling when I’ll stop. Maybe vlogging isn’t for me after all..lol.
So then I posted to Facebook asking for advice on what I should do, Post it anyway or re-do it? I was shocked by the number of people that didn’t want to hear me blab on for 8 minutes. Sheesh! Just kidding, I feel your pain, I really do. The general consensus on video length appears to be around the 4 minute mark.
So I tossed my one take rule and re-did it…oh only about 20 more times. I should know better about that too because no matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t get it below 5 minutes. I.JUST.COULDN’T.DO.IT. It didn’t matter what I cut out either because I just kept talking. I tried, I really did! So while this video below is not as long as the original (and missing a few anecdotes), I only managed to shave about 2 minutes off my time. So be warned. If you’re in to it, great. If you’re not, I get it. Believe me, I get it!
Got more questions for me? Just comment below. Thanks!
