Although the vlogging trend has been rising every day, it is not an easy job. Do you know that 9 out of 10 vloggers fail to reach the desired growth rate of their channel? The main reason behind the failure is a lack of effective or new vlog ideas.
Most of the vloggers end up doing the same thing again and again in their vlogs. BORING!
So to help you spice things up, we have created a list of best 55 vlog ideas you need to try in 2020. ENJOY!
A. First Vlog Ideas
Vlogging is almost always personal. You share your views, ideas, and interests. In a way, it helps viewers know you better.
1. Personal Introduction
Always begin your first ever vlog with an introduction of yourself. Let the viewers know a bit about you. Tell them who you are, what you do, what your likes and dislikes are, and what you expect from your channel. Such introductory videos help the audience understand you more as a person.
2. Your Childhood
Talk about your childhood at the beginning phase of your channel. It may sound personal but works just magical. Talk about the way you were in your youth, talk about the school play-acting, trouble you got into, your favorite teacher or subject. You can also compare the way children are raised today and about your time with some opinions. Advice regarding growing up as well. Kids may watch your vlog, and these topics can be helpful for them.
3. City Tour
Make a vlog of your city. These kinds of vlogs make your city famous and be a guide to the tourists to make their way around town. Share the location of local pubs, restaurants, cinemas, museums, tourist hubs, famous monuments, and so on. Show the lifestyle around your town and invite your audience to visit your city.
4. House Tour
Make a short video tour of your house and room. Let the viewers see where you come from and what your room and other parts of the house look like. Most of the gamer vloggers make videos from only one angle inside the room. A house tour video can be best if you are one of such vloggers.
Show your room or your favorite chilling spot. Give them a glance of your main space a bit better.
Do not reveal your personal information or the security measures in your house, though.
