First there was Garfield the cat, then there was President Garfield, now there’s Steve Garfield, a well know video blogger who runs his own website and freelances for other sites. He is also the author of the new book Get Seen, a comprehensive “how-to” guide that gives you all the skills you need to create and share videos and media on the web.
Garfield began blogging in 1997, but it was not until 2004 when he started to Vlog (believe it or not Garfield came before YouTube, folks! Impressive!).
Now, with the creation of new media and phone video devices, Garfield is vlogging more than ever before.
“I can click a button and send a video to YouTube.” said an excited Garfield “We now have the ability to both record and share with a device from your pocket!”
So how can us common citizen-journalist folk make the moolah out of this? Well, Garfield suggests getting a job that pays you the green, and blogging on the side. Garfield himself started out as a computer distributor and now he is a highly regarded blogger. Garfield also makes it a point to not to count things out “because they are free.” Of course, not everyone is going to be as successful as Steve Garfield in the blog world, but there’s no harm in trying…right?
