For the vlogging channel, I wanted to build the infrastructure and build up all the personalities in a way that felt like weren’t just forcing the audience to watch everyone we have.

Vlogging has become a new and popular way for people to connect over the internet. People upload videos of themselves and talk about their experiences and build viewers and fans that watch and support their vloggers. There’s a whole day dedicated to the act of vlogging and building communities and it’s called Vlogging Day.

History of Vlogging Day

Summer in the City, the UK’s largest online video festival, founded Vlogging Day to celebrate its 10th anniversary of bringing a community of vloggers and fans together. Summer in the City focuses on its creators, viewers, and professionals in the Youtube community by allowing people to make lasting connections with one another. Similar to the United States festival Vidcon, it began in 2009 when Youtube started becoming a popular social media website and millions of people started seeing vlogging as a way to connect with people. Summer in the City hosts its own meet and greets, live performances, award ceremonies, discussion panels, and expos that let everyone involved have a good time.

Because Summer in the City has been successful over the past several years in the United Kingdom, it founded the holiday in 2018 as a way to encourage people to share their stories with the world. It’s also educational, allowing people who don’t understand vlogging to see the benefits of it in online culture. Many who vlog have been able to build confidence and build careers out of their storytelling and as a result, build their own communities that are supportive and caring about one another. Summer in the City hopes to continue to inspire people to try out vlogging and contribute to the global community.

How to celebrate Vlogging Day

One of the best ways to celebrate this holiday is by uploading a simple video of yourself to your favorite social media website and use the hashtag #VlogginDay as a way to let everyone know it’s time to vlog. In the vlog, you can talk about stuff that important to you, whether that would be what’s going on in your communities, your personal life, or whatever you feel like talking about. You can also use this day to listen to your favorite vloggers and hear their stories.
