How to add an Automatic and Consistent Description to your Youtube Videos (video)
For so long, I’ve manually typed in my description for each video, and while, as you can see now, I’m typing in something unique, I would have to re-think and re-research and re-type certain things for the video.

PLEASE DEAR GOD choose “Custom Thumbnail”
A few (several?) weeks ago I posted a blog called “5 Things to consider while uploading your video”. And I cannot believe myself that I forgot to talk about Custom Thumbnails. D’OH! I think it’s okay, because “custom thumbnails” really should have its own blog anyway. So there. A thumbnail is the image you see a video as when you are scrolling on your screen. If you’ve spent ANY time on the internet interacting with videos, you might have noticed that sometimes, this cover image NEVER even appears in the video. Back in the day, this confused me. I’d be waiting for the introduction picture to flash because back in…
