* Put the computer level with your body, not below you. This prevents many shots of your inner nostrils.

* No matter how comfortable, don’t vlog in your pajamas. Period.

* If you mention something in the room, show it. Or don’t mention it. Like cats, who will then come and sit on your screen.

* “Umm” is not a word. Nor is “like” acceptable filler. (I have high linguistic standards, I guess.)

* Vlogging in the daytime is more conducive to people actually seeing your smiling face. If not, use a lot of light.

* Put the computer on something stable, so that everytime you move it won’t wobble.

* Forget all of these rules and the crazy criticism (from your self and others) and remember: vlogging is about connection, sharing, and abundant love.
