I hope you enjoyed my new movie, Blue Spruce 2009! These pictures were actually taken last May at Harbourfront during the day of the Festival. I have saved them in my computer and hadn't really thought much about how I was going to use them.
Tonight, I discovered that you can make your own movie and/or slideshow right online. This site is called ANIMOTO. Then you can "embed it" into your own blog. Embedding means that once I had created the Blue Spruce Award 2009 movie, I was able to copy the HTML computer language here into this blog's "gadget" feature.
In the customize pages of my blog, I can move around my gadgets to different sides of the site. The "Followers" is one gadget. The "Videos" is the second gadget. I also have added the link to the "Shelfari" site. As a librarian, I love my Shelfari account. It is actually a different website where I copy the bookjacket picture of the book I am reading, and the Shelfari site links it to all the publishers, comments and reviews of the book.
The one problem I have, is trying to coordinate the colours of the backgrounds and the text. I think I'm going to use lighter background than the navy blue I have now. The letters came out black and very hard to read on navy blue.
Don't be surprised if my blog acts like a chameleon over the next few postings!
Hope you enjoy my BLUE SPRUCE VIDEO!!! A bientot!
