#BattenVEDA is back! We started #BattenVEDA last year as community for vloggers who were taking part in the global YouTube event called VEDA, where participants Vlog Every Day in April or August. It's a tough but rewarding challenge which is open to vloggers of all levels of experience, so whether you're just starting out or a seasoned pro, we'd love you to join us.
We connect our vloggers through a calendar of daily prompts, weekly Twitter chats and regular Google Hangouts and in a twist from the usual calendar creation we asking you what you'd like to see on the list of topics. So, send your topic suggestions through to email@example.com by 20th March 2015 for your chance to be featured.
Taking #BattenVEDA to YouTube and beyond
Since VEDA began, the focus has remained exclusively on YouTube but this year we're mixing it up. We're opening up #BattenVEDA to video makers on Instagram and Vine too. We're leaving it's up to you to choose how and where you want to vlog this time.
Register to be part of #BattenVEDA
Registration is completely free of charge and simply allows participants and viewers of #BattenVEDA to find you, connect and subscribe to your channel easily.
The #BattenVEDA Community
You can find everyone who has registered to take part in #BattenVEDA right here, so make time to say 'Hi' and introduce yourself - you'll find that throughout the month of April you'll be spending a lot of time getting to know each other.
If you're a #BattenVEDA veteran or a regular vlogger we'd love to talk to you about creating some additional content with tips and tricks for the community. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
#BattenVEDA Calendar of Topics
Our aim here at Battenhall is to keep you motivated and inspired and each day you'll find a prompt on the #BattenVEDA calendar which launches on Monday 23rd March. If you have a topic you'd like to recommend we feature please do let us know before 20th March 2015.
The calendar is there as guide so feel free to freestyle. This is your VEDA experience so you can vlog about whatever you like! If you want to take part but can only vlog now and then, that's okay too. #BattenVEDA is focused on community first and don't you forget it.
Our Twitter chats will take place every Monday evening at 8pm GMT+1 using the hashtag #BattenChat. Watch out for Google Hangouts and other spontaneous activities may pop up from time to time to make this #BattenVEDA extra special.
Finally, always remember to use the #BattenVEDA hashtag when you share your vlogs on social media and if you have any questions at all please feel free to tweet me @StephsBubble or email me at email@example.com.
