Video Blogging is Simple if You Have a Smartphone

by Robin J Emdon

Video blogging needn’t be complex! If you have a smartphone and not much time in your busy day you could video blog in the nooks and crannies of your hectic schedule.

Here’s how to do it…

Making a Video Blog on an Android phone

In the camera app on the phone, select video camera. In the upper right or upper left depending on the phone orientation you will see a little video camera icon next to the flash icon. Press that and select self recording and it will record using the front facing camera so you can see yourself on the screen as you are recording.

Once you’ve shot your video blog upload it to YouTube

Upload from Android

The easiest way to upload your video blog  from an Android device is to use the YouTube app.

  1. Open the YouTube app by tapping the YouTube icon from a Home or All Apps screen.
  2. Tap YouTube at the top left of the screen, then your Account name.
  3. Tap the Upload icon at the top of the screen and select the video you want to upload.
  4. Tap Upload.

Upload from iPhones and iPads

The easiest way to upload your video blog from an iOS device is to download and use the YouTube Capture app.


Video files can be very large! So make sure your phone data allowance is sufficient or you have a WiFi connection before uploading.

And that’s all there is to it!

Just go into your YouTube account when you can and check everything is the way you want it.


If your handheld video blog looks a bit shaky, YouTube has an ‘image stabilizer’ – I’ve used that in my video blog posted here. See what you think?
