One of the hazards of running a cutting-edge interactive marketing firm is you are expected to know everything, even when everything is changing faster than you can catch up with it.
While in Miami for a wedding, I had the opportunity to learn from a fellow blogger who made a comment about putting video into Wordpress. This is embarassing, but I have to say that I didn't think you could put video into a Typepad account, because all of my earlier efforts had failed.
Adding a YouTube video to your site is as easy as adding a little dash of code, and I do it easily on Blogger. For Typepad, it was not working so well, and because I never took the time to look it up, I never realized how easy it was.
You just disable the WYSIWYG editor. That's the little tab to the right of Compose Post. Now, that may not seem like a big deal, but too concerned clients, a guy who has been blogging for five years ought to know everything, right? He couldn't even put video into his blog!
As I said in the title - I'm eating humble pie - but it's a valuable lesson - learning how to learn and being curious about what needs to be done is the most important part of blogging. The word expert does not mean all-knowing - and oftentimes five years of experience is not as effective as one year.
So with that - on the post below - is my first recruitment video post - courtesy of Google Recruiting and YouTube.
