38: Bad News Fer Y’All
Posted by ridor9th on February 27, 2008
I have a terrible news to share with y’all. I’m not a fan of vlogs. If you like it, good for you. But not me.
There are circumstances that I don’t feel comfortable with vlogs. Don’t get me wrong. I like some vloggers out there.
Whenever I am on the computer, I like to be in control of what I read, see and move. The vlogs are the only ones that I cannot control. If you want to understand nor engage in a civil discourse, you have to watch the whole vlog in order to understand. I have no time for that. I prefer blogs because I can speed or dismiss this, that and there.
With vlogs? There are too many deaf vlogs out there — I simply cannot view one by one — so I simply stop watching them. Not only that, the quality of deaf vloggers are dismal, to say the least, to a point where it made me uninterested in viewing vlogs lately.
My greatest beef with vlogging is that many vlogs lacked the information on how long one is. My time is limited. I have a life outside of Internet, thank you very much. I needed to know if it is 2-minute or 8-minute long so that I can view or ignore. The lack of counter information has kinda drove me away from viewing many vloggers out there.
Yes, vlogging is here to stay. I will not deny that. But it does not appeal to me at all.
P.S. One friend told me to check this interpreter’s sign name for Barack Obama. I checked the video and I think the sign name is very cool. What do you think?
