IN TERMS of social media, blogging is one of the in thing. Most people can make a blog and, thereafter, to write after that blog. Called blogero (from the English blogger or literally "of the blog") the person writing the blog. Often written by blogero to blog their opinions and thoughts.
Most blogs contain commentary or news about certain topics; some were using it to make online diary (diary on the internet). An important part of the blog is being interactive, that is the ability to leave comments from people who read a particular blog. Oftentimes, blogs consist only of pure word (or textual), but also scored the content of the work ( art blog), photographs ( photoblog ), videos ( video blogging ).
A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.
Here in Pampanga the first ever we've heard of video bloggers is a group of health enthusiasts who do video blogging on weekends. First it was a hobby, now after a few weeks, they were able to penetrate the local TV network with ease:
Jonas David, a local Kapampangan R&B singer, former host of KTube, and a songwriter.
Patrick Kelly Naguit, aka Kelly is a graduate in Bachelor of Science Major in Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of the Assumption. Worked for five years in a business process outsourcing and hopes to become a restaurateur someday.

These five indefatigable and energetic guys formed a group and put up "Pasyal at Saya" (with a segment titled Star Ka! hosted by Vanna) via their video blogs.
And soon these video blogs will be aired on Channel 44.
