    Bob –

    I had this reply all written and then lost it. 🙁 I hate it when I do that. I think it happens on my laptop because my finger sometimes swipes across the touchpad and accidentally closes the window. Lemme try this again.

    I’m using an intro graphic and intro music as well as an outro graphic and outro music track. I wasn’t going to include intros or outros with the videos I created for the YouTube Challenge until I saw Beverly Taylor’s intro video. Top notch video. I highly recommend checking out her channel if you haven’t already.

    Anyway, I have three videos public on my channel if you want to see how I’m using intros and outros. What I’m doing is real simple. I used the same icons I used on the header graphic for my website. I also used the same colors for the graphic as I used on the website. I got the text fonts as close as I could as well. I wanted the branding to be obvious between the two. Here’s the link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr0ZE2j1_pdEO-QkupO1heQ

    BTW, I don’t know about you but I’m thoroughly enjoying the YouTube challenges. Some folks have posted some great videos and there’s some great interaction going on, the type of interaction I’d hope we’d see here. Oh well.

    Thanks Rick! Yes – I’m enjoying them as well…just getting into the pond (I’ve got two video’s up…tomorrow is day 3 with me – I got started a few days behind. I’m hoping to catch up this weekend).

    I’m a couple of days behind as well. I’m about to post my first two videos for the challenge. I’m current with all the lessons except for the one Sean sent today. I’ll be diving into that one shortly.

    Not dressing mine up in any way – record, render, publish, next 🙂

    There’s something to be said for that method as well.

    It’s the KISS principle 🙂

    Since I want my videos to be entertaining as well as informative, I am adding intros and outros.

    I remember reading somewhere that adding intros, outros, and background music ups the interest and number of views.

    So, just like in my blog posts where I add an image to generate interest, I am adding graphics and music to my videos.

    However, since I have yet to publish any on YouTube, I do not yet know if that is a good approach!

    I will let you know. 🙂
