Preface: Nothing personal is meant in this, it’s purely and solely my issue. Please do not take a fence.
There seems to be a growing trend amongst some of the better known bloggers, better known than I that is, to feature video clips of themselves in lieu of text.
I can’t say I’m in favour of it.
Problem is, I’m finding it hard to pinpoint WHY they irk me so.
It’s not the people that are doing them (4 of which you’ll all probably know), nor the fact that they are doing something that I’m not as, frankly, I just can’t be arsed with that amount of effort at the moment. It’s not the content, it’s not the way they work, in fact the only reason I can offer isn’t even a reason.
It’s just because they seem ‘wrong’.
Now I’ll happily admit, and at this point I’ll reserve the right to change my mind at a later date, that it may be more to do with my dislike of band-wagons (unless I’M on them of course) and I do think that video-blogging (vlogging? ugh) is a perfectly valid use of the medium.
But.. ach, I dunno, is it just me? They just feel ‘not right’.
