Vlogging Tips from Meredith Sinclair

by Susan

Meredith Sinclair from Hoo dee Hoo.com is simply fabulous. Not only is she a fabulous vlogger, but she is funny, smart, and stunning! (Hanging out with Meredith was one of my BlogHer 10 highlights!)

Meredith writes a monthly humor column for Chicago Parent magazine, is the author of “Flush and Wash,” her blog on ChicagoParent.com, and contributes video to the OprahStore.com’s blog.

As a regular on Chicago’s news stations sharing creative family-centered tips and tricks for their live morning shows, and as the Educational Consultant for a major PBS station, helping to develop national programming and working on-air during their infamous pledge drives, Meredith is at home in front of the camera!

Naturally, she does such a fantastic job adding video to her blog to connect at a deeper level with readers. Meredith is passionate, fun, and outgoing — you can’t help but want her for a best friend! — and she is able to share her infectious energy with her audience.

So we asked Meredith to share some vlogging advice with us during BlogHer 10 in New York

My first take is often the best and I hate when somethign happens to it and I have to start over.
Great tips and I never realized that you should include text wtih your videos.
