Fluffy Cat vs Hard-shelled Turtle. Who will win?
The learning curve for how to blog on WordPress can look like an undulating wave rather than a nice smooth upward line.
For me, it’s been more like an almost straight-up vertical incline. But I have secret help: WANA friends (We Are Not Alone). Thanks to Kristen Lamb (http://warriorwriters.com), we can seek out our WANA friends for help with the technical details of blogging. So when I saw this cat and turtle encounter, I thought I might try my hand at embedding a video in my blog. Wana friend Laird recently published a post on how to do just this. (http://www.lairdsapir.com/2012/02/gettin-friendly-with-wordpress/) Good timing for me!
So here’s the video. Cross your fingers that I followed the directions carefully enough.
Thanks again, Laird. I think I see the top of this vertical incline now. I have printed off your directions for the next time. Now I need to learn more about shortlinks!
Where are you on the learning WordPress learning curve?
I figured the turtle would win, but was surprised to see him use a far more aggressive strategy than I would’ve guessed. I thought he’d just withdraw into his shell and wait a few moments until a piece of string or a sunbeam distracted the cat.
I think I’m making good progress learning WordPress. Laird’s been a huge help. She’s pretty great 🙂
Haha. I thought the cats were ninnies. Anyway, at least I learned how to embed videos…thanks to Laird.
aw, thanks, Mike!
Janice this video is hysterical. I agree with Mike – I was surprised at his aggressive tactics. Is this, perhaps, a Ninja Turtle?
Thanks for the shout out! I am so glad I could help! And I will make sure to cover how to create links (long, short, and all manners in between!) in my next wp tips post!
Thanks, Laird, for your help in getting this video up. I think I have mastered it now.
