Hi everyone! I'm hoping some of you can help me out. I'm looking for video blogs on YouTube or other sites that primarily feature female Japanese speakers. I've found plenty with male hosts which are great for listening comprehension, but I don't want to end up emulating male speech too much! I know there are some female podcasters, but I tend to tune out less to videos...

then why don't you just watch the akb shows like akbingo or weekly akb... it's moreinteresting than that stuff plus there's japanese text everywhere.
i personally like the show but dependning on the episode i skip the episode like if they do an episode where they just play games I don't watch it (that burger thing or the flour thing) that stuff is boring to me. but if it involves something that seems interesting i end up watching it but if it eends up being boring i stop. so it depends on the episode so i would find an episode that seems interesting.
週刊!?女子大生バトン (Campus Girls Love Baton) is a podcast series on iTunes which has girls interviewing each other about life, activites, men, clothes... those are really nice the podcasts no longer seem to be available but I found it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdxgEK-LjwY
Yeah, definitely not so easy. I put a few hours into searching around before posting but didn't come up with much that was high-quality and interesting. And, you know, about girl stuff other than being in music videos. If I could find a video diary or fashion, pop-culture, or art/design blog not centered around J-pop, that's ideal! I can't watch live Japanese TV shows for too long before the hyper-GENKI announcers start to grate on my nerves.
Video-blogging doesn't seem to have caught on with Japan as much yet. At least not on YouTube. I'll try looking on ニコニコ動画 too!
