As I continue to play around with and learn the many features of my all-new version of WordPress, it occurred to me today that it’s time for me to try uploading some video here to my blog. As I went about doing so, I quickly ran into an unexpected video roadblock. Apparently, in order to upload video files directly from my computer to WordPress, I must initiate a “video upgrade” to my account. This, however, is not free; rather, it costs $60 a year! I sit here now wondering if this is worth it, for me at least, in this capacity, at this time. My immediate answer is: No. As such, directly uploaded video files may be long in coming. I can, however, post this link to a recent video on my Facebook account. But then, if you’re not my Facebook friend, I wonder if you can see it. Oh, the perils of today’s online technology!
