About This Class

The problem

I have my main YouTube Channel. And I also have my other YouTube Channels . I do embed videos from my main channel on Bizanosa.com . At the same time I also need to embed videos from my other channels.

So, what I needed was a website where I could embed these other videos from YouTube and also from Vimeo. My first thought was, why not create a custom post type on Bizanosa. Then I would just embed videos in this new post type. I decided not to do this because it was going to mix videos that aren’t related to my core area of interest on bizanosa.com. Which is Web related . unlike the other channels which have content on different areas ( Web, Windows, Mobile App stuff, etc)

The solution

So, what I decided is this. I was going to create another blog. This blog was going to be a video intensive blog. Since videos on their own will not get you to rank in terms of SEO, I had to also focus on textual content on the pages where the videos were embedded.

The text on the pages were not my biggest concern. My biggest concern was having a good WordPress theme . A theme that was responsive . Not just responsive for other content, but extremely responsive for Video as well. All content, including videos, needed to resize regardless of the screen size, or the device being used.

I tried out different themes, both premium and free. In the end, I settled with a free WordPress theme which passed all my test criteria.

And I decided to record the entire process as I created the blog.

I enrolled to create my blog. I love the class. Teaching me a lot.
Wow great class but I bit long. You should've broke it into 4 parts in my opinion. That was a lot of work to make a 4 hr class.
