What is vlogging?

The word ‘vlogging’ is a blend of the two words ‘video’ and ‘blogging’. Vlogging has become a really popular hobby for today’s young people and can even be the start of a successful YouTube channel. It can just be a recording of someone telling their audience about their day and evolve from this into explainer videos on a particular topic or review pieces on products. Vlogs can be used to express opinions or can be produced just for fun and for providing a bit of entertainment. There’s lots for children and young people to learn by recording, editing, and promoting videos, but there are also things to bear in mind to ensure they stay safe.

For more information on the associated risks and online safety tips for parents and carers, watch our explainer video, available to those with a National Online Safety membership.
