Over at b5 some of our bloggers are beginning to experiment with video in their blogging. Sean at our boxing and wrestling blog is doing Predictions Posts using YouTube. He’s also brought in a friend on some and the results are pretty cool – two guys chilling out and arguing about a fight – very conversational and despite the lowish quality video quite engaging (even though I have no idea what they’re arguing about).
I think we’ll see more and more of this in the months ahead and it really excites where it all could end up. I know of one blogger who has been doing this type of thing on his blog for a few months now that is currently negotiating a deal with a cable TV station to produce similar content for them. I can’t mention his blog yet but I know that the videocasts that they are producing are as popular if not more popular than their audio versions (podcasts) and their blog posts.
