Posting Video on your Blog

I wanted to add a video clip to my blog posting recently, but I didn’t know how. It’s actually quite straightforward – once you know how!

Step One

Open the website with the video clip you want to paste on your blog

Look for a field or button labelled Embed or Link (or something similar). With YouTube, there will be a field labelled Embed. With Google Maps, choose Link in the upper right hand corner

Highlight and use Ctrl + C to copy the HTML code

Step Two

Now open your blog posting and choose Edit (These instructions apply to Google Blogger, but other blog sites should be similar)

Choose the Edit Html tab (just above the window where you enter your text) and paste (Ctrl + V) the code from the video website in the spot where you want to place the video

Return to the Compose tab

Choose Preview to check that the video clip is in place (it probably won’t be visible in the Compose screen)

You’re ready to post your blog and video clip
