25 Brilliant Bloggers Talk About Vine


Brilliant Bloggers is a bi-weekly series here at NMX where we look at the best posts from around the web all surrounding a specific topic. Every other week, we’ll feature a brilliant blogger, along with a huge list of more resources where you can learn about the topic. You can see more Brilliant Blogger posts or learn how to submit your link for an upcoming edition here.

This Week’s Topic: Vine

Vine is the hottest new kid on the block, and although people are still a little tentative about using anything that involved video, this is really helping to introduce a new medium to people in the least intimidating way possible. The thought of creating a 10-minute video is terrifying to a lot of people. A 6-second video? Well, that’s not so bad.

Using Vine can be fun, but it can also be a promotional tool for your brand or content. So this week’s Brilliant Bloggers is filled with advice on making the most of this new platform.

Vine is still pretty new, so if you haven’t checked out this platform yet, don’t worry: you aren’t alone. That’s why I love this post from Craig Fifield at Social Media Today. It’s everything you need to know to get started plus lots of tips for users of all experience levels. This is an especially helpful post if you are using (or thinking about using) Vine for your small business, your blog, or something else you’re trying to promote, rather than just for fun.

  1. Thanks for including my post Alli! Hopefully Vine will make its way to Android here soon so more people can check it out.

  2. These are great blog posts. I want to add my six seconds as well. Here’s my take Vine as a content marketing vehicle from last month:

  4. Still waiting for an android version. I COULD use it on my iPad but that’s not exactly the best video recorder.

      ME TOO! I’d love to play around with Vine, but I’m an Android girl, so I don’t have that option right now. It’s surprising to me that they don’t have an Android version yet, hope it’s not like Instagram where we have to wait FOREVER!
