The Purpose of this exercise is first and foremost the Training on my Topic! I would like to encourage you to enhance your pages with a short YouTube video that compliments your content and peaks your reader's interest. The Video should be no longer than 2-3 minutes and the subject matter related to your content.

If you're able to, you can also create your own video if you don't want to use a YouTube Video! I have had so many compliments about my little videos that are full of knowledge. I call them my little gold nuggets and I know my readers enjoy the ones I create myself, because they are both funny and interesting.


Now that you have completed the training tutorial, I hope you learned something new that you can apply it to improve the development of your Website. What I do know is:

You know how to put the "Embed to Bed!"

Hi Sharon, I did place a video in my post with no problem, but the video does not have the sizing tools at the corners. Also, how did you get the text for wrap around words? I don't think you showed how to get that text. Thanks, Susie

The text she used to wrap the words around the video is html code. Html code goes from very basic to ultra complex. It's pretty much like learning a new language, but over time you can pick up bits and pieces and use it to tweak your site :)

So I did everything you said step by step and the video is still not there. Any suggestions? Thanks!

try pasting the code in the text side, or change your theme and see if that helps. the issue could be theme related

I did that, I will see about the theme. I really like the theme and do not want to change it. Thanks.

Another great video tutorial by Sharon. Thank you my friend.
I did learn something from this one. I did not know about the
more link and changing the settings like that. Even an old dog
can learn new tricks. God Bless ;-)

Again Sharon, well done! I am glad you added the information about if no share and embed information is shown, that the user does not want the video to be shared. I often see people asking if YouTube videos can be used in their content. Thanks for sharing this video training.

Hi Sharon.
Is this your first attempt at creating a video? It's really good. An absolute beginner would be able to understand your instructions as they are nice and slow and clear. You don't miss any details whatsoever and you have a great video training voice:)
Well done:)

Given the choice, I would watch a video everytime. But if training is in reading format, I don't at all find it off putting. Hope that helps!

Hi Sharon!

Thanks for this tutorial that is exclusive to those you CAN watch videos with unlimited internet data.

Would it be possible for you to do a text version for those of us who cannot watch the video due to internet data bundle constraints?
It would be so good if you could. But if not, I understand.

In your first few sentences, you mention enhancing your pages with a video - I would have understood that to mean that you would have your main content in text form, in your pages and then you would add a video as an added benefit, or did I understand you incorrectly?

Hi Evan, I'm glad you liked it. Well you answered the question I was going to ask. I want to know if the members like this training video method as opposed to the traditional teaching. I'd like to continue to do these as they get right to the point and people can bookmark it while they're doing it. I learn a lot better from visual as well:) Thanks again for the like and keep smiling. Sharon:) Here is another helpful one I published yesterday, would you mind taking a look and giving me your feedback on it if you have time. Thanks, Sharon:)

Hello again, Thank you for taking the time to watch it. I'm glad you liked it. I want to do more, so I'm asking members what they prefer training videos to the other method of learning? I realize not everyone can't see videos, so I will do some posts if I'm allowed to do both on the same subject? I want to accommodate others who need help too. Would you mind taking a look at the one I published yesterday, it's very helpful too. Please leave me some feedback on that one too if you have the time. Keep smiling. Sharon:)

Hi Larry, good to hear from you. Thank You very much for checking out my Training Video, I'm glad I inspired you. HTML can look intimidating, but it's how I learned to build my first website when there weren't any software programs available. You can do so much more to enhance your website. I printed out the pages and kept them on my desk when I started out. It wasn't long before I didn't need them anymore. I'm glad you're going to give it a try. I'll be watching for your training video. Keep smiling, Sharon:)

Your training is very precise. I have found that people listen to my accent and not the message. A minor challenge, no doubt, but one that has produced reluctance.

I got to play with a demo version of Camtasia recently. It suited my needs but has to go on my wish list for a while. I was pleased to see your method of embedding existing videos (attribution needed?). My photography experience ranges from 10x8 and 5x4 sheet film through to modern digital but I was only on the edge of vid to now. I am determined to go with the flow and absorb as much as I can.

I have attached my recent effort for an email promotion. One of the sound tracks is a small subliminal message to remember my phone number.

Hi Larry, That is so cool, I loved the underwater video, what a unique idea! LOL I will keep in touch. I have always been involved with photography and the many mediums that allow me to create wonderful gifts. Don't give up on the video idea practise makes perfect.
