I Love It

I decided not to rant about anything today because, hey, I'm in a good mood. Instead I will be paying homage to a very special entity--YouTube. If you have never taken advantage of the many uses of YouTube, you should start today.

If YouTube was a dude, I'd marry him.

I'm in love with YouTube because it has so many uses and I have learned so many things from it. Plus, when I want to hear a certain song, all I have to do is type in the title, or just a few lyrics, and it plays the song for me.

When I'm trying to find a new hairstyle to do with my nappturally (nappy and naturally) curly hair, I search for styles and watch the tutorials.

I listen to YouTube when I'm at work to drown out all of the foolish talk going on around me so I can concentrate on my work.

When my son is begging to see a certain cartoon that he hasn't seen in a while, I check YouTube and there it is. Yayyy! (He watches it for 5 minutes then goes in the other room to watch some other kiddie show.)

YouTube even has videos on how to make videos and how to upload them. I put together a few pictures and some music in Windows Live Movie Maker and TADAA a video. It's only a little over a minute long, but I'm proud of it. The music's kind of loud so you may want to adjust your volume (I haven't mastered that yet).



Alexa ranks YouTube as the third most visited website on the internet, behind Google and Facebook. I kind of agree with the ranking except I think Twitter should be a lot higher than number eleven, but that's a story for another day.

Do you use YouTube? If so, what interesting things have your learned from it?

@Varrsity

I think I would like a spring wedding. Not too hot, not too cold. LOL

Yeah, you're right! At first, I used to use You Tube just for music. Then, somehow, I found myself searching for a lot of other things there, too. Plus cartoons and even parts of movies or TV shows. Well, friends are awesome help, you know - they keep on sending links, so finally one gets into it.

I know what you mean. My co-workers are always showing me something different on YouTube that I had no idea was even there.

"If YouTube was a dude, I'd marry him." =) That made my day!!

I LOVE YouTube too. Mostly because of the music, but also because of the tutorials.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. LOL

I just got into the tutorials a couple of months ago. My first love is the ability to find whatever song I want to hear.
