On Academic Vlogging

It’s been a almost a year now (just a month away) since I started making youtube videos, I have always wanted to share my thought with everybody, I grew up as a very talkative child, and the became an introvert who have a slight problem with speaking to people directly in their eyes. Well, I started my channel wanting to talk about issues and teach theories as I understand them. For example, the three most basic International Relations theories, Realism, Liberalism and Constructivism, but I always get scared right when I decided to shoot.

I am a liberal arts student as some of you may already know, so I kinda know what I will be talking about, but the thought of teaching others in the internet scares me, so much that I just resign into teaching my fellow students our professor’s lecture that they can’t seem to grasp, or was too fast-paced.

Is this fear rational? Do other academic vloggers feel this as well? I don’t know but i really want to talk about this things, I have been preparing different papers and reading to guide whoever will watch them to understand the theories and make it simpler and more comprehensible for them. I just don’t know.

Do you have some tips or advice you could give me?

Should I just start my academic vlogging in a just blogging. Help me.
