Default How about creating 'Videologues'?

Came across these few nicely made videologues the other day and immediately an idea popped into my head as to why can't we have a separate section for these on T-BHP?







If not a separate section, then maybe such videos can be added to the Travelogues to make them more interesting. Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Personally, I much prefer a text + picture report over a video. It applies to all my time online, be it business news, product reviews, current affairs etc. With a regular text review, it's so easy to jump / skip a section too.

From the content creator POV, it's much easier to create a high quality text + picture report than a videologue (shooting, editing, voiceover etc.).

I feel videos can greatly supplement a text + image report, but as a reader, I wouldn't want it to replace conventional content.

To answer your question, some BHPians already include videos in their reviews / travelogues. We've also gotten some official reviews with video highlights.

+1; a section, may or may not be needed, left to discretion, but, video logs are easy for viewers but extremely difficult process for the one who makes it. Infact takes hours & hours to make one than a simple TLog in written + pic formats

But yes, I prefer VLogs than writing TLogs these days, though its painful; here's one sample of mine...

I might sound as a orthodox person but translating the verbal facts into writing is much better. Having a small video of 1 or 2 minutes is fine but written facts do provide the pleasure for reading and a better understanding.

Be it a travelogue or even a initial test drive/ ownership review, I feel more than videos, writing helps.

This is totally my opinion.

Thanks
