To VLOG or not to VLOG

I'm thinking of starting a VLOG and want your input. Instead of just writing a bunch of stuff, what about me delivering the message, on camera? Here's how the Geico caveman does it.

PS: My award winning book, features the most innovative caveman of all time -- Og, the inventor of the wheel. Buy it on Amazon

Totally personal preference is reading vs watching. Easier given schedule and just learn better by reading.

yes, yes I believe a VLOG would be an excellent idea although I hope you will always be writing Mitch because I love the way you word things too.....!

Yes absolutely. It is fitting that a caveman would be the first to encourage you to do what you were born to do. That is be a VLOG rockstar as well as a BLOG maestro.

This can be something you can do in addition to your writing. I'd hate to see you go exclusively to a video blog because your writing is so enjoyable. Sounds like a great idea.

Mitch, it should not be one or the other.
Certain topics would benefit from complementary visual presentation, most of your blog are good in written format.

I say keep up with the writing. But if you have a sweater like the caveman's, it's just a must that you do a VLOG from time to time.
