Finally getting to grips with Youtube

Youtube is always there, it has always been there. In Web terms it is elemental. Like rocks or the ocean, or something. Ebay too (Difference is, I never use Ebay, never quite know what I’m doing, what pitfalls exist to trap the unwary. And there are many, so I hear. And anyway, I can’t be bothered).

So, Youtube. Two things have happened: My USB dongle connection seems to be so much better these days –  watching online video is actually possible, and I have started making my own movies. If you make your own movies, you need to find them a home, so that other people can see them and say “what is this shit? are there no hilarious cips ofcute kittens falling down the stairs while chasing a spider?!!“.

So I am trying to set up my Youtube ‘channel’, edit my tags, try to view statistics about my video which I can’t do because only 40 people have watched the wretched thing, and pick which pretty colour the page is. I am also trying to remember which clips I have seen that I want to add to my favourite list, in a vain – and futile – attempt to make me look cool.
