For this April’s A to Z Blogging Challenge, fellow participant Mary Burris (who hosts Jingle JangleJungle) inspired me to insert video. I managed to figure out how to do that via Youtube after struggling with my tendency to get overwhelmed by too much information.
It’s so obvious now. As she said you click 'share', then 'embed'. ~sigh~ At least I have that technique down.
Formatting text became my next challenge. For some reason, video insertion changed what all ready satisfied me in former previews.
Then I realized that I could probably insert video HTML code within text entered into Blogger’s ‘compose’ mode. I went to my original MSWord document containing my post and typed the words INSERT VIDEO HERE in each spot intended for video.
No, I don’t mean to virtually shout. I put the words in all caps so as to more easily find them within the HTML code. And voila! It worked. What a relief.
Have you found any convenient fixes for plaguing little issues? Don’t you wish you figured it out earlier?
To celebrate, I’m going to share a bonus video. Enjoy.
