Blog or BookTubing?

Lately I've been wondering which is preferred among book lovers-blogs or booktube? I've been blogging for almost two years, and I really enjoy it. But I've been thinking I may want to try booktubing. I did it for a while last year and it was pretty fun. I just don't know if it's more enjoyable or less enjoyable than blogging.

I know that I tend to watch BookTube videos way more often than I read a blog post. I check YouTube daily for new videos.

There's definitely perks to both, such as being able to watch vs. having to read. What do you guys think? Blogging or BookTubing? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. I've actually been having the same debate with myself. I'm debating doing a combination of the two. I'm excited to see what you do!

  3. Sorry for that, I had a typo. It's really up to you to. I prefer reading, but that's because I'm just not a YouTube person in general and I rarely ever watch stuff beyond sports or when I'm eating. Have fun with whatever you do!

  4. I didn't know it is called BookTubing! These past few months I really started getting into youtube and I started making more videos on my channel. So I think if you enjoy doing it, do it! I tie mine into my blog, but you can always make it separate too or focus on one.

  5. I think it is one of those 'whatever works' things. Personally, I prefer reading the blog than watching the video. I can read at my own pace, and more important...I don't need the volume on. That is important when I check in the middle of the night or where it might be a distraction for others.

    Never heard of Book Tubing. Is that a specific site, or just a name for book related you tubes?

  6. I love booktube!! Like..watching it! I'm actually obsessed with watching it! BUT...I'm not sure I would ever be brave enough to babble into a camera...I mean, what if somebody finds out??? Haha, I know that's line, but I'd be paranoid of people seeing me talk to a camera. However, as I said I LOVE booktube, I love how much work and time and enthusism people put in their videos!! Oh, and if you do decide to booktube, I'll totally watch your videos!

  7. I personally prefer to read blogs. I'm often browsing my reader during my downtime at work or during my commute, so watching videos is usually not an option. I think they're a great way to supplement a blog post though, so your readers (or viewers) get the best of both worlds!
