You want to start vlogging, but where do you start? What should your first Vlog be about? Here are a few ideas that will help all new vloggers get started.


Your first Vlogs


You want to start vlogging, but what should you do? How about your first Vlog? Here are a number of ideas that help you a hand.


Say hello to your audience in your 1st Vlog


1. Say “hello” to your audience


Start with an introductory video if this is your first vlog ever! Say a little about yourself to your (potential) viewers. What you do, what the vlogging channel aims to do, and what you want to achieve.


You are still a complete newbie for your viewers on the internet. That’s why you must tell them who you are before they find your vlogs are interesting enough to subscribe.


2. Reasons you want to Vlog

 

Everything happens for a reason. There must be reasons why you want to do Vlog, and this is a great time to explain your decision to start your channel.


You might want to become famous, or you want to share with everyone helpful advice, etc. 


The following Vlog is an excellent chance to capture and share memories of your life, especially when you're unsure what to talk about.


3. Your future Vlog plans


Tell your viewers where your channel is going to do in the future. How often do you expect to upload and achieve with your channel? What type of videos will you upload? Etc. 


4. Overcome struggles


We are all facing, or we successfully handled our struggles.


Mentioning how you defeat these challenges is a great way to connect with your audience as a human. Try them out and see what reaction people have.


Personal life


Vlogging is personal, but it’s also possible to focus on particular topics such as beauty, fitness, or music. These vlog ideas target what your audience can learn more about you.


Share your personal life with your audience


5. Share your objectives


What are your life objectives? What are you aiming to get in your career? Where do you want to travel or live? What do you hope to achieve? 


We've got stuff that we all aim for, and they tell us a lot.


6. Your bucket list


The bucket list is a list of certain things we want to do. Many people have their lists to direct their lives easier. What about you? What's yours?


You can share with viewers your list and ask them back about their bucket list.


7. A tour around your room or house


Your viewers usually only see one camera angle, and they can't see the rest of your room or house. 


As they are pretty curious, why don’t you spend a Vlog showing everyone your room or house? This will bring you and your audience closer.


You can also create a video showing your setup or devices you use in the production process if you run a game or technology-related channel.


8. Your morning and night activities


How are you preparing for work or school in the morning? Or what do you wind down at night before you go to bed?


We all have our habits. It’s fun to tell people about it and to learn about others as well.


9. One particular day


Your vlogs compile your highlights most of the time, but why don’t you record your full-day once? 


Try to capture as much footage as you can from the time you wake up. This gives your audience a deeper insight into how a typical day in your life is, as they never see that in your vlogs.


10. Drawings of my life


Drawings of my life is a video in which you tell your life story by drawing it. 


You don’t need to be good at drawing. The drawings are only illustrations to make your vlog more fun and entertaining to watch. 


It’s easier if you have a small whiteboard with non-permanent markers. But you can also draw your life in your vlog with only a pen and paper.


11. Fun fact about you


Create a list of interesting and surprising facts about you, which you pick to tell your viewers. 


For example, you can share what food you are allergic to, what bad/good habits you usually do, etc.


12. Tell your audience a story


One of the easiest to love things is sharing an incredible, funny, frightening, and interesting moment you experienced.


They might be anything such as the first time you meet your best friend, or the first time you travel alone, or how you overcome your first tragedy in your life, etc.


Consult your parents, siblings, or friends if you have no idea. Who knows, they can come up with several funny stories.


13. A rant vlog 


You can also talk about a subject you are intensely interested in, such as sport, hobbies, school or anything else.


14. Your top [number] favorite [topics]


Create a video of your favorite activities, films, music, or anything. The best way is to make a top five or top ten videos to explain why you like these films, music, products, etc.


For example, you can talk about your top 5 favorite movies or tv dramas.


15. Your less favorite things


That's contrary to your previous vlog concept. Instead of mentioning your favorite things, you can talk about the opposite of things you don't like. 


For example, which are the worst films or television series you ever see? Why are they so bad? Why are they so dull?


16. Share your skill or talent


Make a video about your unique talent or your astonishing ability. Remember, it doesn't have to be unique.


Singing, playing an instrument, or drawing a funny picture is a good start.


17. Behind the scenes


Your audience usually sees your complete vlog version, but they don't know how much work a video does. So, making a behind-the-scenes vlog is such an interesting new thing for your audience. 


18. Event coverage


If you go to a cool event such as a concert, a football match, or a festival, take your camera, record that event, and share it with your audience.


Amusing vlogs


Consider these if you’re looking for ideas to make your viewers laugh!

20. Challenges


Challenges are another great way to enhance your Vlog channel. They’re fast and easy to capture; they only take little time but firmly hook your viewers’ feelings. 


You can refer to some YouTube challenges to ignite your ideas.


21. Reaction videos


Vlogs responding to “something” are always well received and can be funny to watch on YouTube. 


You can record a vlog of you watching, then reacting to some old videos, your Youtube comments, tweets you receive, funny or scary videos.


22. Parody


While it’s hard to get right, a parody of a movie, music clip, or video from famous people can be a fun choice.


If your vlog is popular then, it will gain a lot of new subscribers.


Vlogs of information


"You can learn new things from anyone you meet.” 


Tell the world about your new knowledge by making Vlog


Vlogging is an excellent way to share and learn new information. Tell the world about your new knowledge that you learn from people you meet.


23. "How to.." Vlogs


“Everyone needs good advice.”


That’s why you should create some "how to" and tutorial vlogs to share helpful knowledge with viewers if you’re expertise in certain subjects. 


It also works particularly well if your Vlog channel targets a certain niche.


Most people search on YouTube if they need assistance with something. This means they will tend to use one of your "how-to" videos to figure out their problems.


24. Review something


We all watch television series, movies, listen to music, play games, read books, and buy new products and services. To find the best ones, they might need someone to review them.


Share with your audience your feedback on all these things. What you like and don't like about them.
