Well, actually, I was positive the first video could go up tonight. But…
Do I put this up on my Google account?
That’s a question I had to ask myself! Usually, I would. This is only a summer project, so it can totally be under my name. But what if. (And you wonder what if? (What if? What if?) What if? 🎶 ) So what if I decide to scale up and make more videos? Will I want them under my regular Gmail account? I honestly don’t know, but I debated about it, which took time. My final decision was to make a new YouTube channel under my regular account instead of displaying my actual full name.
How to I point people to my next video?
Through my blog, viewers will simply have to check out the next post to see the next part of the tutorial. I’ll also bundle everything in a playlist so it’s easy to find what goes after. But this video will be up on YouTube, and people will be able to find it directly there, which may make it hard to find what comes next, as it won’t necessarily be in context! I’ve seen people put clips of other videos at the end of their video, so I’ll leave a few seconds of white background to add it. I may brand it with the nerd glasses I have on my blog header 🙂
How do I name it?
What’s the format usually used? Name of the series – Name of the video? Do I number them? I have no idea! Need to check out what other people do.
Isn’t there something about thumbnails?
It’s late, I haven’t done thumbnails. If I use the default one and post it on my blog, will WordPress cache it, and will it take me forever to find how to uncache and recache the whole thing? Seems like it’s not something I want to test tonight!
So, yeah, still not ready :-/
