Who could have imagined 7 years ago that posting videos on the internet could be a full time job?  When YouTube was founded, posting videos on the sharing platform became a new trend and a bunch of internet users discovered that uploading videos online was an easy and profitable way of making money while staying at home.YouTube then gave birth to what is now known as “vlogging”; but what exactly is vlogging? “vlogging” defines someone who posts entertaining videos online of his everyday life; a vlogger will film around 4 or 5 hours of video footage per day and edit the content to make it enjoyable to the viewers.
