Hi, I see, a lot of people here are asking to review their websites and blogs.
Can I ask you to review my video?
I am not a native english speaker, and I am not sure whether you, the native speakers, and you, the guys from non English speaking countries, understand me well.
You don't have to watch all the video, but I DO APPRECIATE your feedback.
I know, my English skills are not perfect, but should I continue.
Two questions:
1) Do you understand everything I am saying.
2) Do I make lots of mistakes? Is it acceptable?
Thanks, guys, waiting for your opinions.

1) Do you understand everything I am saying.
Yes, actually. You can obviously tell you are not a native English speaker, but you DO speak very clearly.
I can understand ALMOST everything you said. The ONLY 1 thing I didn't quite understand had nothing to
do with your speech, but I think you were rushing through what it was you were saying at that moment.
You actually speak clear English than some native English speakers I have listened to, so, well done...

2) Do I make lots of mistakes? Is it acceptable?
Yes, it is acceptable, however, I would suggest investing a few bucks in some sort of stand (or stabilizer)
for your camera. The movement was a bit distracting and started making me feel dizzy.

Also, I didn't notice any mistakes, however, do not be afraid to make mistakes on video (within
reason of course) as it adds to the humanity of your video.

All in all, very nice video. Very clear and easy to understand. I may just subscribe to your blog, so kudos
to you.

Thank you, Developer.
Nice to hear that.
Actually, I am not sure whether I should write posts or make videos. I don't feel uncomfortable when I'm in front of the camera. And it is much more eaiser to make videos rather than to write posts.
Thank you again!

Based on your "And it is much more eaiser to make videos rather than to write posts." response, for YOU, I would say post videos... If that is what comes easier for you, and you enjoying doing it, by ALL means, video away, lol.

Seriously tho, if that is what you find easier, that is what you should do. I would try to find someone who can transcribe your videos however, so that you can offer both video based content AND text based content on your blog. You could save money by posting the "general idea" of each video yourself, but if you're not that good at writing or you just don't like to... Fiverr.com would be a good place to find some low cost transcribers (if that's the route you want to go).

The one thing you need to remember no matter what you do is that YOU have to be able to enjoy it enough to keep up with it. If videos are your thing, THAT is what you should do...

I will say that you did look very comfortable with that lenses pointing at you, lol, so I say GO FOR IT! Whatever works for YOU!

I think Developer covered everything well. I agree, I think it turned out well. You did a good job. If you did it without a script, all the better.

Yes, you need a stand for your video, kind of made me "Dizzy" as well.

Only thing I can think is maybe smile some times, you just look kind of sad.

As already said, if you can do video's, for sure stick with it. I think you could get more traction and traffic through the many video channels. And frankly, many people that are not native english speakers do not put out good blog posts, so writing is not good for some folks.

A better camera would be awesome, and better enunciation would be enough to get that audience retention up!

Hi Alex, here's what I have to say about your video.

To be honest, I found the video to be quite long at around 15 minutes.

That's why I didn't watch your video straight away until I had some free time.

This is why I think videos should be around 5-10 minutes depending on what's being shared as they often get more views then too but again, depends on what's being shared.

Regarding what you did share, I was able to understand you most of the time, including you talking about growing wheat grass and exercising and blogging.

I got the general gist of what you're saying in that we can be successful by blogging about the valuable information we have on virtually anything.

Obviously for the newby blogger/marketer it is worth a watch for the ideas and inspiration you provide.

But to me that is like teaching me how to suck eggs LOL

I don't know if you should have used a better camera, 1080p HD was an option so that's all that matters I guess.

However I wasn't too keen on your background of your wallpaper choice haha ;)

I think next time you make a video, you should have the camera fixed and have a whiteboard in the background with things on it relevant to what you're talking about.

Example, showing small basic formulas on how to make money, the things you might need to do, that kind of thing.

That would be a bit more professional.

Also the video ended abruptly almost prematurely. You said that the sooner you create your own blog, the more..... and couldn't hear the rest.

Anyway, that's my feedback, hope you find it useful bud. +1

Mike.

I really enjoyed it actually. You could probably shorten the time a little for, you know, "most people" who have no attention span. But I have attention span and I liked it. It was encouraging, too.
