In this videoblog remix, I think Trine begs to differ. Lovely stuff.
I’ve been thinking as well that perhaps ‘the everyday’ is the currency of videoblogging in a way that is more muted for (personal) text-based blogging. Not that everydayness is more or less present, but that it is more important in creating whatever affective power the genre has. I’m speculating very tentatively here, but maybe it has something to do with the illusion of more immediate self-mediated representation – not ‘truth’, exactly; maybe it’s about how mundane details (washing up in the background, dogs barking in the distance, whatever) creep in without being written in. It’s certainly something to do with multimodality. I wonder if Trine, or anyone else, has any thoughts on that?
I haven’t started work for the day yet, so no word count 😉
