Update to Side Bar, YouTube Link Connections

Updated Blog Side Bar

I’ve redone the side bar to include the YouTube Channel so that it REALLY TAKES you to the website. Before it would just play the video and you couldn’t see where to Subscribe. NOW it takes you actually to my YouTube Channel itself. Then you can better see how to subscribe. Several had said they couldn’t see how to. Now I see why you couldn’t but this should solve that issue. My goal is 100 subscribers. It’s free! Then you won’t miss an update. I also have been adding in the video embedded from YouTube to the blog entry itself and I don’t think it lets you subscribe there either. So I’ll just provide the link next time. Hopefully this will solve those issues and make it easier for you.

How to find the Blogs Side Bar in iPhone or iPad.

On the computer version of my blog, my blog’s side bar is actually on my side bar, to the right LOL. All kinds of goodies there where you can follow by email or get a blog notification. You can see Facebook, Instragram, Twitter and now finally a link to YouTube. So when you click on the YouTube photo it’ll take you there.

But….on mobile platform the SIDEBAR is all the way to the bottom – for iphone you have to scroll past my blog entry to even see my side bar. Prior to today I had an infinite number of scrolls – so you could NEVER see my side bar on iphone or ipad. But now I’ve limited the number of blog posts to THREE with NO infinite feed scroll. (But it does have a button to see more posts if you wish to continue.) So now everyone can be happy! But at least now you can see my side bar on the mobile blog site – it’s just at the BOTTOM! See the You Tube icon and click and it takes you to the VLOG section of Less Hustle More coffee. And there also you can subscribe. Help me meet my goal.

Finding the Side Bar, Scrolling to the Bottom – then click on YouTube!

Wow. I have spent like 2.5 hours this morning trying to figure out how to do this. WordPress was not letting me enter a HTML code from YouTube it’self – I had a cute little icon made from the YouTube site to share but NO it won’t allow certain types of HTML with script. So…I had to link it via the photo I created (via Canva). I’ve viewed all types of tutorials. And I have finally got it set now.

I did a blog post previously already today so be sure and read it down below. Whew, now to go get some housework done so I can come back and play and create! Wasn’t meaning to spend so much time on this today. But trying to help make it easier for ya!

Easy Way to get to the VLOG version of Less Hustle More Coffee on iPhone or iPad

First click on the “Hamburger” icon as they call it, in the TOP LEFT CORNER.

And then it will open up a menu where you can see ABOUT ME and you can click on VIDEOS. VIDEOS will take you to the VLOG Version.

Hope this was helpful. Now come give me a subscribe! 🙂

First iMovie on the New YouTube Channel

Well, it was another labor of love, this iMovie! I’m going to have to start tracking the hours. I worked on it every day of this 4 day weekend. Not all day long but a few hours each day.

Since life happens so fast and I am only capturing bits and pieces of it, the media (pics and videos) I have had to work with was minimal. So piecing it together is interesting. But I enjoy it. There were some clips where it was hard to get the audio consistent no matter how hard I tried.

I wanted to show pieces of the pandemic and the issues with Maisy and the washer going out, and George’s good cooking saves the day!

So much improvement to be had but I look forward to continuing to learn:

To film, to tell a story, to provide value and not just entertainment. I’m already looking forward to the next one. They will always be behind the blog though.

So I’m going to take a break this week and work on getting ready for the June shower – need to gather items and order items and such. I will work on knocking some OTHER things off my list besides creating movies. lol

So I DID go ahead and create a NEW channel with a new email and I created a new Twitter account and a new instagram account. So over time I will build those up and also I will connect everything here. I also need to add some other things to the blog as well.

My first goal is to get 100 subscribers. That is when I get my own YouTube URL where it makes it searchable. So if you like it at all, please SUBSCRIBE! And give me a thumbs up on the video.

I’ll be ordering a gimbal or some kind of selfie stick thing so I can film better from a distance. And probably need to invest in one of those little iphone microphones. I have already decided that I will be buying myself a Cannon EOS camera. I have the stimulus money and blow money already saved up to do it now. But I’m not allowing myself to do it yet. I want it to be a reward for reaching milestones. I’ve not decided how many subscribers that will be but – I’ll decide as I map and plan. And then I want to get out and use it. Which means I’ll need that raccoon looking thing they have on top to block out wind and probably some other tools. And we’ll need to be able to get out and explore. I’m looking forward to all of it.

Here is the video! Don’t forget to subscribe if you like it at all and give me a thumbs up. Thank you Thank you.

It’s me in Vlog form for sure.

I learned how to do Thumbnails through Canva. I need to go in Paint Shop Pro and make my logo round so the square background is not there.

Anyway, off to work we go after a beautiful 4 day weekend. And I have a lot to do in a short work week. Minus a day to get PR done.

Take care! See you in a couple of days!
