Video blogging is a great way to give your readers an even more personal look into your life, and sometimes there are things that are just best said in person. It's also a wonderful way to record special moments in your life and store them all in one place, whether to show off to others or to keep private.
DailyStrength allows you to insert videos from your YouTube account or other video streaming account into a journal entry. You can insert (or embed) videos you upload yourself to YouTube or videos from another member's account. In this tutorial, we will assume you don't have a YouTube account and start there. If you already do, skip down to the part (link) about posting the video to your journal.
A lot of laptops and computers come with webcams these days, and a YouTube account allows you to record a video and store it directly on YouTube, no extra steps required!
But if you don't have one, there are plenty of places to get them for cheap! Other sources of video that you can upload onto a YouTube account include digital cameras with video capabilities, cell phones, and of course regular camcorders. We won't go into the technical specifics of how to get your videos onto your computer in this tutorial, but technology makes it very easy-- just ask a tech-y friend or find out on Google by searching "how to upload videos to youtube."
One of the easiest ways to post a video on your website is to sign up for a YouTube account. It's completely free and very easy. Just visit www.youtube.com
and click the "Create Account" in the top right corner.
