Vlogging vs Streaming

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Six]

The edit.

That’s it.

The difference between vlogging and streaming is editing.

But first the news:

Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb to stream refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner. Streaming refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself.

On Saturday night I’ll do a stream where I’ll do an escape room – edited, LIVE, and I guarantee I’ll mess up. Start over. Fix things on air.

And be VERY human.

A video blog or video log, sometimes shortened to vlog, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.

Yegads, it’s a rough night’s sleep the day after sleeping in and going to bed early anyway and knowing you’re getting up at five.

Am I not making sense?

But first the news:

Apparently there’s no new news if you write your previous blog post towards the middle of the day and the next post at the beginning of the day and that was on a Sunday. Today’s post is going to make less than no sense.

Why am I doing this, again?
