this morning I read Rebecca’s blog http://raigecreations.blogspot.com/2011/09/nablowrimo-huh-national-blog-writing.html And for a while I was thinking about joining, might be fun to write about what goes on in my head everyday. But right now I am still so involved with the online class about self promotion that I really don’t want to overload my plate.
Last night I finally gathered all my courage and joined youtube. This is my Channel
http://www.youtube.com/user/handmadefuzzy?feature=mhee You know I can’t just have me channel sitting there with nothing in there to look at. So I spent half of my evening first sorting my pictures. I noticed that I need a better filing system for my items. Will have to work on that on another day.
I followed the links on YouTube to create a video and had one done. It was supposed to be a 30 sec. video, for free. I kind of ended up with a 1:50 min one and no charge. I had it posted for a bit, but I had an uneasy feeling so i took it down again.
So back again searching the net to find a place where you could make longer videos without paying. Found one, and off I went again. It wasn’t hard at all, finding the right music was a different story. I finally found what I was looking for, it fitted perfect. So I posted this cool video…… and you know what it came back flagged from YouTube. You got to be kidding me, all this for nothing again?
I got an email from YouTube which said something about “content ID match” it has something to do with copy rights. Ok, I don’t want to get in trouble with any “big” companies. I looked up what this content ID match meant and decided to change the music on the clip. As you can imagine that was not a easy task to find music that is not copyrighted. I tried a few and always got flagged. Until I found this page http://dig.ccmixter.org/ There is even free music for commercial use. Digging through all their music was not on my plan last night, so I just clicked a few and found something that would fit.
This is my first video (ok, finally figured out how to add a video)
After that I had a few more trial and errors, but I got three more videos done. So my channel doesn’t look so empty anymore.
Now I will enjoy my weekend with cooler temperatures and some fun.
Wish you all a nice one too!
