6 Reasons Deaf Should Vlogging (Video Blogging)?

Many Deaf people love to use the video camera, record video in tablet or smartphone and webcam PC as their hobby since they are Vlogger because they have their own unique sign language.

For example, my Deaf friend, US blogger Sam Dunn. He really love to put his experience life in video and also observe with Deaf technology. Please visit his blog, Illustrator: Blog-alloon. He is very active and love to share his opinion with Deaf community. Not him only, there are many Deaf Bloggers and Vloggers around the world too!

So, I think it's better to encourage Deaf Malaysians better to try learn new and join in the blogging world, because the technology always change so quickly since we live in the revolution of internet age! You will know why you should vlog for your personal life or business.
