So I have heard that Yahoo is going to offer a competitor to YouTube. I am kind of excited about this idea.
Don't get me wrong. I love YouTube. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I watch a lot of JVloggers, and spend more time than I should watching old TV shows and clips online. I even have some videos on YouTube. I think I have about ten. They haven't gone viral (and I wouldn't receive any money even if they did) and only one of then has had a really strong number of views--though I am not sure what the attraction is, and nobody has commented on it.
I guess I just want to be there, on the ground floor when it happens. While it won't be a new thing (like YouTube was), I would like to say I was there from the beginning. I want to be one of the originals, even though the idea won't be that original.
There are problems, however. What kind of content should I put up? I am not in
so JVlogging is out. I live in Japan , and
while I love my country, I cannot see any blogging potential there. I love my hobbies, but since I switch them
around so much and am rather lax on completion, I am not sure there is anything
there either. I love to rant (check out
my other blog site to see what I mean) but I have a face for radio--and who
would want to see a static image of a wall or picture while I rant away? Canada
I am excited and I want to participate, but I don't know how.
On another note, I still don't know what they are going to call this thing. YouTube is a brilliant name. Yahoo tube sounds derivative. YahooTV doesn't sound cool. They already have Yahoo Screen--so I guess that's not it. I suppose, if I were to name it, I would call it OnYahoo.
