What inspired you to write a book about vlogging?

A book about video? Who are you trying to reach and what do you feel is the biggest barrier for people adopting video blogging?
@isocialfanz For the people who enjoy reading as much as I do, I've written this book for them. Who am I to decide the medium? The biggest barrier is allowing yourself to accept that people are going to think things about you because you're making your mark. No matter if it's good or bad, they will judge you for daring to make video. Getting past that is tough.

If you could give yourself 1-2 pieces of advice when you first started out, what would they be?

Do you have preferred video lengths for different pieces of content? Do you find a certain length to resonate most with your subscribers?
@getsynap Definitely different lengths for different formats. A lifecasting vlog will go on a little longer when it makes sense (closer to 10 minutes) while a strategy or tip will be a 2-4 minute video ideally. No matter what the length, make good on the promise you give your subscribers and only use the time that will be valuable for them Not too long. Not too short.
Hi Amy, I have started a Blog about trending tech and other topics, I need to know how do you see the idea of utilizing Google Trends as a source of blog topics?

Thanks Amy! What have been the biggest personal/mental benefits you have experienced from vlogging? How would one best approach vlogging to optimize those benefits?
@andrewdbass I have becomes a far better communicator than ever in my life. By being able to focus on the camera lens like it's a person I'm talking to over coffee and being the best version of me in that — otherwise awkward — form of communicating, I've learned to tell a story. That's made me better as a person and better yet, a public speaker.
