WordPress and Video Embedding
This is a video lesson about how to first upload a video to youtube and then on Video Embedding into your own blogsite, it’s not as hard as you may think but as I always say “Do it once and your an expert” It really is that easy! You don’t have upload a video to place it into your own blog. The main thing is that the person who put the video on YouTube allows for embedding, which means that they have allowed for other folk to also use their clips in other websites! Basically you click on the share option under a YouTube Video and then further down there is a link for embedding which nine times out ten will show you a short line of code that you place the curser on and then click command and the A key at the same time, this will highlight the code and allow you copy and paste command and the C key at the same time will grab the code which you then paste into your post in the TEXT section, not the visual or it will not work. Just a line of code will show up instead of the desired video clip!

First WordPress Post
Making Your first WordPress Post, finally you are ready to start blogging ….Yippeeee! But there are a couple of pointers you can use to make your first WordPress Post all that much easier. I know that when I first started blogging I had absolutely no idea there was a post feature called the kitchen sink? It didn’t make sense that I could some things but not other stuff? I could see some things done in other people’s blog but yet somehow could not do them in my own blog and it was really bugging me to think I was not getting the best out of my time and efforts, plus there were presentation elements I was wishing to add and improve on? At the time there were not as many WordPress Tutorial style videos on the internet and from memory I did not have much bandwidth to play with, so it was a little daunting.
Although these days we seem to get more bandwidth for our miney and the information on how to use a WordPress Blog has increased ten fold so there truly is a goldmine of information out there! The purpose of this video is just to show you how to get started with your first post and how to make a few things happen that you may not have realised you could actually do. Things like the “read more” icon which allows you to shorten your post and add the option for “continue reading” for the visitor. It’s a simple thing but until you know it’s there, it can be a mystery and you may wonder just how to implement into your blog. When doing your first WordPress Post also adding colors and knowing how to make your text and font bold is another handy piece of information we can all use. The thing is these are all there, it’s just sometimes you don’t know until you get a nudge in the right direction. So I am hoping you consider this post to be a “nudge in the right direction” and that it gets you on your way to completing your very first WordPress post with many more to follow!

As mentioned once you know how you will start to notice if people are doing it on other sites you visit and you will find yourself comparing the look and feel of these websites. Do they justify WordPress Posts? Do they look more professional? Are they easier the read, is the overall feel to the blog or website a better design? You can align your text to the left and to the right, even to the center! For me, other than in one example in this video I will always use the justify method to improve the look of my work and words. I think you will agree as well once you have made the easy changes to your posts. Also we will touch on the ‘More” option which allows you to hide some of your text by adding a “Continue Reading’ button. In long text based posts this can be a very handy option to save space and loading time on your WordPress Blog.
