Have you tried adding YouTube videos to your blog?
If you haven’t, try it. YouTube videos add value to your content. They make your website more interactive, and they anticipate the needs of your audience. Even if you do not know for a fact that your website has visitors with very short attention spans, you may find it rewarding in the end to add videos to your website anyway. A video can reinforce the points you made in your entry. Or, it can add humor to an otherwise boring post. Or, it could be the preferred media of some visitors, who do not have the time or the interest to read long paragraphs.
But do you know how to post YouTube videos to your blog?
That is where WordPress help in the form of guides enter the picture. If you’re new to the platform and need WordPress help to bring a YouTube media to your blog, know that there are many ways to get the job done.

- Look for the word HTML (found slightly above the area for your post) and click on it so that whatever you write will appear to you in HTML view.
