Blogging vs Vlogging

Well hello again, (new) blog. It's been a while. Not so much that it's been a while since I've used this website; I have never used this website. I have, however, blogged on at least three others in past years. It's been a while in that I have overlooked you (blogging) in favor of your cousin, VLOGging. I will admit that, on top of treating vlogging like the favorite, there were a few blogs I even transferred into vlogs. Unforgivable, I know. But that's in the past. I mean, I'm sure I will find myself going back and forth between the two of you, I just won't pick one above the other. You each have your own special offerings to the outlet we call creativity.

Mass, world-wide attention: Vlogging.
No pre-write required: Blogging.
Visually appealing: Vlogging.
Easy edits later: Blogging.
More creative control: Vlogging.
Fewer haters: Blogging.

I mean, there are definite extremes, in that people could have a widely popular blog, in that they would gain an array of haters, and the world-wide attention that vlogging, on a site such as YouTube, could present. These generalizations are meant for the majority of users who don't make it big, or as big as you can be on the InterWebs.
Having said all of this, I will continue to post vlogs, stupid short films, and my own senseless ramblings via video form.
Deepest regrets,
