Brad,

It was fantastic!  And in the long run just think...more will get to chat live...and that was WAY fun! 

BTW...thanks for the tip on centering using html code...I used it right after the class when I inserted a real bird iframe about an open I am doing!

Thanks Lori - it was fantastic having you there.  I missed most of the chat since I was busy flapping my jaws in the breeze during the class, but after, I did get a chance to go back and read some of it.  I'd have to say ya'll were having more fun than a group should be aloud to have during a class.  Wait a second....was anyone even paying attention to the professor??? hahaha~

Now I'm really starting to sound like a teacher... OMGosh!!  lol~ 

Glad that HTML trick helped you out.  :-)

One of the things we talked about today was spreading your videos around and getting additional exposure.  This post is a great testiment to just another way of exposing your videos to other audiences and traffic.  I used these videos just as a sample for this post, but due to the amount of views and the number of comments, each of these videos have risen up and increased in not only views, but clicks, replays, forwarding, etc. making them somewhat viral no?  Add to that fact, the 9 Reblogs, and there you have it.  A great way to use your ActiveRain Blog and youtube video to increase traffic, new visitors, and get greater exposure to a "larger than your own" audience.  I hope this make sense cents?

A Special thanks to all of you who could make it today, and also to these 9 friends for reblogging my post, I love you man!!  :-)

Here's another way to get video's out there, if you use gmail, the attached videos will show up in the receivers email and can also be watched right there within the email.  That's a pretty cool way to share videos with those still using email.  :-))

The class was great, and I'm just starting experimenting with video.  I feel like I've been locked away in a closet.   Thank you for sharing with us.

At first I always thought that Youtube was where concert videos and music videos went, I didn't see the real value in it. But recently I have been doing a lot with Youtube videos. Now I can see why they are so popular and help out so much!

Videos are something that I have really yet to fully implement.  I am currently researching this in more detail as my business plan is being revamped.
