Sandeep Junnarkar, from the New York Times, told me when he was going to call, and that he wanted to talk about how to set up and promote a videoblog.
So I made a few notes.
In general, I'm happy with Sandeep's basic overview, but want to add some detail to help you promote your video blog.
From my notes:
1. Do nothing, Google will find you.
The easiest way to promote your video blog, is to do nothing. Google will find you. Just make sure that you annotate your video blog post with text that describes what's in the video. For example, if you search Google for Boston Marathon Video, or Blizzard 05 Video, look who comes up. It's me!
Some weblog software can automatically do this. It your software can't, you can do it manually at Ping videoblogging.info.
3. Sign up for vidblogs.com and add an entry for each new video that you make.
3A. Join the Yahoo! Videoblogging group. It's a great place to meet other videobloggers from around the world and learn how to get started with your own video blog.
4. Add your feed to mefeedia.com
Contribute to local citizen journalism sites like Universal Hub in Boston where we are making the media!
I hope this helps.
Let me know when you've started your video blog.
