How I got Started on YouTube

On Tuesday, Michael Humphrey with Forbes.com wrote a great article about how I got started on YouTube.  Maybe you want to start your own channel and turn it in to a business.  I offer tips that have worked for me.

Seeking Volunteers for Captioning Crochet Videos

I am looking for volunteers to help with subtitling crochet video's in English only. I will be happy to write up a document if you need credit for a course or volunteer work. I am including a link to Universal Subtitles, which is a free subtitle program. I have used the program and it is very easy. It will help keep track of the videos that have captions and the ones that do not. There is a big need for captioning.  The captioned text will provide the ability for the videos to be translated to different languages.  When you subtitle a video, please let me know.





This is the link to the playlists I have created with the video content.  
http://www.youtube.com/user/tjw1963?feature=mhum#g/p

If the video does not have a CC, then captioning has not been created.  You copy and paste the link to the video in the UniversalSubtitle Program.  Please include the name of the video and link when you write. I will need the information to find it. Write to me when the video is complete
I am a…
