  • The Content Creator’s Stage Fright:

            Surprisingly, most content creators are the ones who have stage fright.

Some were challenged because of speech disorder as to some stutter a lot when speaking

  • Staying Focused on most Shoots is difficult:

            If you checked the behind-the-scenes of a certain shoot, you’d notice that most of the videos of the content creators have a lot of loopholes and are less polished. It usually takes them a lot of repetitions before it                becomes perfect however in videos they film live, there are more flaws and distractions that a content creator makes. As a coping mechanism, they either use mockery and banter jokes instead. This may be fun                and it would make the video less serious yet it could really derail a message.

  •  Delivery is Everything:

             A content creator’s speech must be straightforward, coherent, and must be in-lined with the topic. Some content creators however find it difficult to that especially those who do vlogging for the sake of views and                 subscriptions from the followers.

  • The weaknesses show:

              From stuttering to the wrong packaging. Some content creators flaunt their weaknesses which affect their contents because of negative feedbacks from the viewers. Some take them positively some really take                   them negatively.Vlogging is not just a matter of setting up a video camera and do whatever content You’d like to create. The real sense of vlogging is to create a proactive community with members that seek                       knowledge which they can use as they discover things in life. Hence, it’s the obligation of a content creator to make videos that are worth-while.
