Inserting Video onto Your Active Rain Blog

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with 210 Consulting~ Social Media Advisors

I just finished reading Erin Golding's post: How on Earth Do You Blog So Much and in there, she made the following statement:

(I can't figure out how to embed videos into my ActiveRain blog so if anyone can help, that would be great).

I wanted to make sure she got the answer, so the first thing I did was read through the 80 comments thinking for sure someone had left a link to a post on how to do this.  To my surprise there was none.  To my even bigger surprise, when I searched ActiveRain for an post I couldn't seem to come across an updated blog post with information on how to do it.  So, Erin, this tutorial is for you!

If the video is too small to view, try watching in HD.

Hi Jeremy,

I have always been reluctant to try this.  I am taking on Susan Brown's "Rainy Day Scavenger Hunt" contest though and finding a post that gave steps to embedding a video is one of the items.  You are right, it was not easy to find directions.  You did a great job here explaining it.  I'm ready to give it a try!!!!  Thanks for your post!

I just found this, it's stupendous, and thank you so much.  It so much easier when there are people around who actually know what they're doing and are willing to share.  Thanks!

Karen...

It's been my experience that most Agents over think video. Just practice being yourself in front of the camera. Once you're comfortable just start shooting video. It's not as difficult as it looks. It really isn't :)

TLW...ROAR!

TLW- You make some really great points... People get all nervous because of a camera.  Think of it as a client & just have a conversation with it.  The beauty is that they don't talk back to you... Unless of course it is iRene the iPhone :)
