Today’s mission is to integrate a relevant YouTube video into your blog.  The key is relevance.  It relate to your blog topic.  Don’t put in another car crash compliation if you are writing about new music.  Leave the car crashes to another site.

IDEAS: Review a commercial, revisit a song, find a clip that is USEFUL to your audience, find a clip that teaches them something.

1. Find a YouTube clip that relates to your topic.  Can’t find it on YT?  Search vimeo, prelinger archive, etc.

2. Watch the clip.  What are you writing about?  The point is not just to post the video but also to write intelligently about the clip.

3. Add the clip to your post.

4. Write and publish.

Domain name registration

Domain name sales

  • Business.com for $7.5 million in December 1999

Sometimes too many words kills a domain name…too much chance for a misspelling.

Choose your word combinations carefully:
A Spain pro-tourism site used choosespain.com
A teacher community site went for teacherstalk.com
MacHome Magazine?  MachoMe.com
