International Vlogging Day Date in the current year: August 10, 2022

International Vlogging Day International Vlogging Day is observed annually on August 10. It was created to celebrate video blogs and people who make them to keep others entertained and educated.

Video blogging, often shorted to vlogging, is a form of blogging for which the medium is video. The history of vlogging is closely tied to the history of YouTube, since YouTube was the first major video sharing platform. However, some people had recorded and shared videos online as a form of a diary before YouTube was launched.

Among the first video bloggers were Adam Kontras, whose website The Official Journey has been recognized as the world’s longest-running video blog by the Guinness World Records; Adrian Miles, who referred to his video blog as vog; Luuk Bouwman, whose now-defunct video diary Tropisms.org was one of the first websites to be called a video blog and vlog; and Steve Garfield, who launched the first vlog on behalf of a US politician.

However, it was YouTube that made it possible for vlogging to become mainstream. At first, people created blogs mostly to update their families and friends on their lives. But since those early days of vlogging, it has become something more. Today, vlogging is one of the most popular forms of online entertainment and a career rather than a hobby for thousands of content creators around the globe.

The online vlogging community is so huge and influential that special conventions are organized to bring vloggers, their fans, executives and brands together. One of the oldest and most popular vlogging conventions is VidCon. First held in 2010 in Los Angeles, it has since gone international with spin-off events in Brazil, Spain, Mexico, and the UAE. Other major events for content creators include Playlist Live, VidSummit, South by Southwest (SXSW), and more. In addition, most multi-genre conventions have events dedicated to vlogging.

International Vlogging Day has been celebrated annually since 2018. It was launched by Summer in the City (rebranded as Social in the City after the 2019 event), the largest multi-genre online video festival in the United Kingdom. The date of Vlogging Day, August 10, was chosen to coincide with the festival’s Creator & Industry Day, a special event for content creators and industry professionals.

Since the inaugural celebration, International Vlogging Day has become popular among vloggers around the world and taken on a life of its own. It is the day when you can show your appreciation to your favorite content creators on YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, and other platforms.
