If you’re wondering how to edit a vlog and then you’re not alone in this. A lot of YouTube and Vlogging starters suffer from this editing syndrome in which they’re afraid of recording, editing, and finalizing the videos. And trust me, the vlog editing looks so horrible until you get started with it.
But let me tell you the purpose of this brief tutorial. It is written to help guide you and to explain it to you that vlog editing isn’t scary at all. You’d probably fall in love with it if you’re really into vlogging. The reason is that when you know the basic tools inside your editing software, the options are open to you and you can tweak a lot to make things work and play with the effects and that’s where the creativity heightens your interest in vlogging.
