There is more to blogging than just writing articles. Video blogging is on the rise as more people rely on YouTube and other top video sites to make a living online. Starting a video magazine with WordPress can be a good idea if video is your thing. You don’t always have to be the producer of each video that you post to your video magazine portal.
