I want to start making video essays talking about things I like/dislike, but I have basically no thoughts other than "this was cool/this wasnt cool, here are a couple reasons why" and I feel like a smoothbrain because of it.
How can I become a better writer about things I like?

watch the earlier videos of Red Cynic (They have English CC) and observe hiss explanations as to the pros and cons of something he reviews. Some of the analyses on these boards are also a good examples.

Try to relate the subjects to political economy or talk about the ideology that informs how they're written.

I want to create video essays too, I'm good with the writing part but I'm not too experienced with the technical stuff (i.e recording, editing, etc.) Anyone have any tips or recommendations (preferably free shit)

will check it out. MandaloreGaming had a good video on how to be a youtube video man also, but I am lacking in critical parts that he presupposes.

I am attracted to the idea of building an online persona by repeatedly putting my opinions out there for others to consume in a centralized location (blog, youtube channel, etc)

ehh, that seems like it would get old really fast, especially if I had nothing to really add on that topic
It would just become the obligatory 15 seconds where I say surface level political observations

For screen recording, OBS is great and cross platform. Editing depends on what you are using, I hear OpenShot is a p good free editor, but I've never used it since I got a cheap Vegas key

Why not just write regular essays? You can read it out loud or something if you want to post it on Youtube for ad money.

okay, but my point still stands of I don't know how to put my thoughts on paper

This book has some good ideas about it, although most of the advice requires you to find some people to practice with. But in general I think actually discussing the topics you want to write about with people is great help in clarifying your thoughts.
