    Do you guys read or own blogs? I just closed my blog in favor of creating YouTube videos.

    I occasionally follow blogs. They mostly deal with in-and-happening anime/manga industry news.

    I tend to not follow videos as much because you're kind of at the mercy of Youtube. I prefer blogs because they tend to be more informative and the really good blogs are the ones that offer up videos if visitors request them enough for certain topics.

    I very rarely watch youtube video blogs because they just don't have the same appeal to me as a well-written blog. The person in the youtube video could have a point in what they are saying, but if it's presented badly, or if they are trying to be funny when they are not, I just end up switching it off after 30 seconds, maybe less. If their voice is monotone, I'm probably going to switch them off too. XD

    I do watch youtube video tutorials though. I used them a lot in uni to help me understand various programming related things. I learn better by demonstration, than from reading books. It's just the way I am. Of course, other people will say that they learn better the other way around.

    I used to blog a lot, nowadays not so much. I actually feel embarrassed at my old online blogs, but I still find interesting the way my way of thinking has shifted over the years. Nowadays I don't have enough time to write long entries online and if I had an active blog it most likely wouldn't be focused on my life. I'd either bring back "Rants about forums" or... yeah, most likely that.

    I like reading other people's blogs but I haven't done that in a while.

    As for vlogs (video blogs), I am fine with them most of the time.
