You'll need a great vlogging kit if you want to enter the world of the video blog. If you aren’t familiar with the concept, a vlog is just a blog using the medium of video instead of the written word. But why are so many content creators intent on exploring this form of communication? Well, for one reason or another, many people  suffer from severely short attention spans! This results in higher bounce-rates on text-based media, such as blogs, meaning people navigate away from websites due to lack of patience. 

Videos offer an easier, more interactive, and more digestible way of communicating crucial information, allowing content creators to get through to their audience without wasting precious time. And, if Cisco is to be believed, videos will represent about 82% of all internet traffic by 2021.
