Is Snapchat Making Vlogging Obsolete?

I have to admit that I’m spending more and more of my time on YouTube.  I especially love beauty related videos, but if I really like a beauty guru I will be interested in learning more about their life.  I think other people feel the same way, which is why vlogging got so popular…

Pinning is Glamorous!

Is Snapchat Making Vlogging Obsolete?

However, I find now that I follow most of my favorite YouTubers on Snapchat, that the Snapchat stories are like daily vlogs.  So I think fewer YouTubers are vlogging and choosing to just use Snapchat.

I’m curious if this is intentional, or just the way things worked out.  In reality, being a content creator is a lot of work… despite the face that we make our lives look so glamorous on Instagram.  Since there is only so much time in a day, it makes sense to Snap instead of vlog since it’s quick and in the moment.  No time consuming editing.  Plus, one could argue it’s more “real”.

However, I like a beautifully edited vlog.  I also like that it’s got some longevity.  Snapchat is so fleeting.

This all comes about at a time when I’ve cut back on my vlogging.  I just don’t know if my life is interesting enough for weekly vlogs.  However, I really enjoy doing them when I’m doing something exciting, like my trip to NYC or my Honeymoon.
