Luv your blog! Thanks for the wholesome lifestyles~ inspiring new possibilities with reminders of the positive, our excellence, and beauty.

By the way, what do you use to add your music selections?


Hi Ruling Q,

Thanks for your comments. I’m not for profit and comments like yours are my only payment. But I can you that you see what I’m trying to do here. Make health ad wellness “hip and trendy”, and a lifestyle mindset, and integrate it all with the social media crowd, so it is an enjoyable interactive browse, and if lucky maybe  little health and nutrition education as well. 

Adding music to a Blog is pretty simple, no need to be intimidated

To embed (meaning add/insert) a YouTube Video here are the steps.

1. Go to Youtube and find your video

2. a little ways down (below th video) where you see an arrow and the word “share” you click on it and then click on “embed”.

3. After you click on embed you will have what is called some “embed code” and can copy it, for example, the embed code for the New Edition “Can You Stand the Rain” is:

4. Paste this code into the code for your blog (or anyplace that accepts embed code). You can manipulate the embed code various ways such as changing the size of the frame as in “Width=570” . There are many other ways to change embed code but that is advanced stuff you can look up later

5. So when you pull up my article as an example, the code knows to go out to YouTube, crab the video based on the embed code and display as part of the article the video. The video is still technically still on YouTube, my article is just a little window calling up the YouTube Video.

…..I love to embed music into my blog because I’m always up in there playing music and getting all immersed in my crazy “themes”. It all started because I’m an egghead by nature and I was paranoid my blog would be overly scientific and boring. The music in my blog is like a soundtrack of my life

…hope that explains it 

~stay healthy~
