VlogTober Roll Call & Prompts

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on September 20, 2013, 29 comments

Whoa! WAIT A SECOND! It’s almost October?! When did this happen?! I feel like it was just…March a few days ago.  But, the signs are everywhere – temperatures are cooling off, daylight is getting shorter and shorter.  So it’s time for sweaters, boots, pumpkin spice lattes and VlogTober!

VlogTober?! What?!  As you know – because I constantly bombarded you with videos – I participated in VEDA (Vlog Every Day in August) this year.  It was a BLAST.  And afterwards, I decided I wanted to take a (tiny) break, and then keep the fun going.  And what better way to do that than to celebrate Fall in a grand way with VlogTober!

What is VlogTober?  It’s basically a mega awesome celebration of fall.  Veronica and I have made 31 fall topics for you to celebrate with us!

You can participate in VlogTober in any way you would like – and you can find more information in the video below.  You can vlog (video blog) every day about each topic, or you can break the topics into clumps – weekly, every three days – whatever you’d like! Or! If you don’t feel comfortable vlogging, you can BLOG about each of the topics.

If you are new to vlogging – this is an AWESOME way to start!! I was brand new to vlogging (I had only done one video) when I started VEDA, and it totally got me out of my shell and made me LOVE vlogging.  The big thing that helps is having pre-made topics, so you don’t have to use up more creative thought for that part!  Daily vlogging is easier than you think – most days I just recorded on my phone and uploaded it directly to youtube from there, but you can FEEL FREE to get more creative with editing, etc!

VLOgTober Promptd

So here are your different paths:

1 – Vlog Every Day in October, each day on the prompt below!

2 – Vlog once a week, or twice a week, on the prompts below for that week!

3 – Blog about the topics – in whatever frequency you would like!

Here are the ‘ground rules’:

1 – If you’re going to participate in any way – leave a comment on THIS blog post with your youtube link OR your blog link

2 – Keep daily videos less than 5 minutes long (so everyone has time to watch them!)

3 – Keep clustered/weekly videos less than 10 minutes long (again, so everyone has time to watch them)

4 – Label your Vlogs or your Blogs with ‘VlogTober Day ___’ for daily vlogs, or ‘VlogTober Days ___ – ___’ for not-daily posts

5 – Subscribe on youtube to the people listed in the comments so everyone can see each other’s videos!

6 – Most importantly – be super duper supportive of EVERYONE! Especially those who are new to vlogging

7 –  Don’t stress.  If you miss a day, no biggie! If you don’t like a topic…skip that day, or talk about something else! My feelings won’t be hurt 🙂 Just make it fun!!

You can watch the video below to hear me ramble some more about how excited I am.  Then, you can read the topics below (which you should print, or bookmark this blog post so you can come back to them!) THEN! Leave a comment if you’re going to join us!!

I can’t wait to see all of your videos!!

  2. This looks like fun 🙂 I may not be able to do it every day but I’d like to try anyway. Thanks for coming up with this Chelsea and Veronica 🙂

  3. Im late to the party. Include me in! Will prob do it a few times a week, since that is an option! I loved VEDA but mannnnn that was hard on certain days when life got in the way LOL
