A picture is worth a thousand words…so a video must be worth a million?



I thought this was an original idea, so I googled it to be sure, and what do you know: someone has stolen my idea! haha!

All this info comes from this link:“But according to McQuivey’s Forrester study, How Video Will Take Over the World, “Video is worth 1.8 million words.” 1.8 million words, exactly. His reasoning is simple: if “a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video has to be worth at least 1.8 million words.”


It’s no secret that visuals—gifs, images, and video—boost engagement with social media. In 2016, Wistia and HubSpot found that “social media posts with videos in them boost views by 48%, and visual content on Facebook specifically increases engagement by 65%.” We like video a lot, and a link and thumbnail of a quick 15-second video is a great way to get around that pesky 140-character count. And that’s the real value of video.”

I can tell you that I am loving vlogging and sharing all my videos with you. Cooking, travel, social activities, art, technology and more! So many of you have been curious enough to check them out to get an idea of what a double life’s like in Toronto and China!

It’s just such an awesome feeling to know so many folks want to see what I’m up to here. The China stuff so far has been interesting. I’m learning the videoing part and can’t wait to get back to terra firma in Toronto and California in August to start videoing stuff there.  So please check out all of my new videos on myYouTube Channel. And enjoy!
