Mystery Post

Hello, friends.

There was a post from Vanda earlier this week that was an old post with out of date information that somehow reposted. Neither one of us has any idea how it happened. I’ve spoken with Vanda and the post has been deleted.

TTMT for Charity!

Hello, TTMTers!

Watching our various videos this week, I couldn’t but notice that most if not all of us make quilts, hats, baby clothing, and a variety of other things to donate to various charities.

I’d like to make a list of links for each of our respective organizations so we can share here on the TTMT blog. I think it would be a great way to share what we do and it will give our viewers an easy way to connect to the charities we support.

If you’ll leave links in comments, I’ll figure out the best way to share them here on the blog. Thanks!

Thank you all for being awesome!

Uploading and Sharing Your Video

Hello, friends!

I’ve had some questions recently about uploading to YouTube, posting to WordPress, and scheduling posts. I thought I’d do (quick!) tutorial to hopefully answer all of these questions.

This tutorial explains how to upload using a computer. Using a phone or tablet (both YouTube and WordPress have apps) are a little different, but have the same settings and are fairly easy to use.

upload tutorial 00

Once you have your TTMT video saved and ready to upload, you’ll visit YouTube (make sure you’re logged in) and click on the upload symbol (top right-hand side of the screen).

upload tutorial 01

To share your video on the Talk to Me Tuesday WordPress site, the video must be either “public,” “unlisted,” or, “scheduled.”

  • If you’re uploading the video when you want to post it AND you want it to show up in YouTube searches, choose “public.”
  • If you’re uploading the video and want it to post later, choose “scheduled.” If you choose scheduled on YouTube, make sure you choose the same schedule time on WordPress (see below).
  • If you’re uploading the video and don’t want it to show up in YouTube searches, choose “unlisted.”

Once you’ve chosen your privacy settings, click on the big grey arrow to upload your video. Once you’ve selected a file, you’ll go to the next screen.

 

upload tutorial 03 (2)There is a lot going on on this page.

Your video url (link) is on the left.

If you’re scheduling your video for later, you can change the time and date on the right-hand side.

The button at the top right is for publishing now or later.

You can add title and tags here, too (center of page).

If you to choose your own thumbnail, this is also the place to do that (bottom of the screen).

upload tutorial 04

Once your video is in progress on YouTube, you can start your WordPress post!

Go to talktometuesday.wordpress.com. Make sure you’re logged in. If you’re new to TTMT and don’t yet have permission to post, contact me.

Click on the “write” button on the top right-hand side of the screen.

(Note: if you’re using the WP app, the “write” button is an orange circle on the bottom right-hand side.)

upload tutorial 05

Posting to WordPress is SUPER easy.

Fill in your title.

Copy and paste the video URL (link) in the text box.

If you want to publish later, you can do that under “status” in the right-hand column. This is also where you can add tags to your post.

 

upload tutorial 06

When you’re ready to publish, push the “Publish!” button. You’ll have one more chance to change your video settings before you publish.

Easy peasy!

I hope this answered your questions. Please let me know if I need to clarify anything.

Blame me, not Robin!

Hi, all!

We have a lovely new member who has been participating in comments for some time now. I gave her contributor status and didn’t realize that her video posts were languishing and waiting for approval. I’ll definitely keep that in mind the next time we have a new friend!

Everyone, go meet Robin! She needs extra love now that I’ve accidentally made her wait so long!
