How to Add Videos to Your Blog Posts

Step One – Upload your video to YouTube.

Step Two – Select “My Blog” from almost any Higher Self Portal page, then click “Create.”


Step Three – Add a title.

Step Four – Copy your video link on YouTube and paste it into the large content section. Your video link is what is displayed in the address bar at the top of your browser when viewing your YouTube video.


Step Five – Down at the bottom left corner, click the light green [Set Featured Image] button.

Step Six – Find an image on your computer you wish to use as the cover picture. This is important – you must add an image because that will become the thumbnail for the post.

If you want to write an article instead of linking a video (you can do both in the same post), then just start typing away in the large content area.. Normally, you’ll want to be sure the [Visual] tab is selected in the top right corner of the content area. If you are comfortable with HTML, you can used the [Text] tab for customization.

Step Seven – After everything looks good, you can click the [Publish Article] button. If you want to edit or delete your post at any time, you can select [Edit or Delete Blog Posts] from the [Activities] menu at the top of any page.

You can click View above the editing area to see your new post.

Your blog post may not appear on the home page of Higher Self Portal right away, but it will be randomly displayed along with other blog posts from time to time.

Title + Link + Picture = Done
