  1. Thank you for sharing this video with us. I was looking for it for a long time. with the help of this video, I was able to insert a pic in my blog side bar.

  2. I am so glad you are incensed with your knowledge. But that is no way to teach. If my professors taught that way no one would show up.
    WAY TOO FAST! BAAAAHHHHHH

  3. Excellent info.  Just one request though.  Since you have put this info together for BEGINNERS, perhaps you can slow down some so this new stuff will be able to sink in.  Stopping video and implementing strategies takes time, but when the video jumps so quickly from one area to another, it does indeed, make it a real challenge to get everything right.

    All things said, though, it is a great info video and I enjoyed it so much that I chose to subscribe to your site.
    Good stuff here.   Thanks again.   :)
