Video Blogs: The Easy Way

One of my favorite emails each morning is "Al's Morning Meeting." Written by former journalist and current Poynter contributor and consultant Al Tompkins, the daily email is designed to provide reporters with story ideas and insights to emerging trends in the industry.

Yesterday, he described how he posts his video blogs. Using a camera he bought online for $60 and other inexpensive software that actually provides a teleprompter for it, he shows just how easy it is to do a video report suitable for the Web. Watch the video and you'll be ready to start posting yourself.
