Vlogging or video blogging (ie including videos in your blog) has become a lot better, easier and cheaper.
First, there are sites that will host your video with no charge either for storage or for transmission. Second, your video can be included in your feed. And third, the video can be searched by Yahoo.
A site that will host your videos is OurMedia -- http://www.ourmedia.org.
For including multimedia in your feed, you can use Feedburner. There's some basic information at http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/about. Be sure to use the "SmartCast" service (not the very basic service.) Their feed burner works for video. With audio content it can be used for podcasting.
Yahoo is in the first post-beta version of their video search. There is a blog entry from Yahoo that describes video searching at http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000106.html
