Embedded Vine Video: Cats At Play!

My students, in one of my classes, will be creating Vine videos and then embedding them into their blogs. Click in the top left corner to view the six second video with sound. See below for the steps to embed your Vine video in Blogger.

This is GiGi, a Persian calico, who, like most cats, loves to play in bags!

Sylvester, also a Persian, loves to rub his face against objects, such as pens.

Vine is fun- lots of potential for offbeat videos like these, but also for marketing, promotions, and news too.  Simply put, Vine is divine!

Steps to post Vine videos on Blogger: (insert URL in HTML setting)
In Blogger when you are in the New Post part, write a few or more lines to set up your Vine video. When you are ready to put in the embed URL (go to your Vine video and click on the three dots--... but vertical--next to the video which will show you ways to share the video. Click on embed and copy the URL that comes up.)
When you are posting in Blogger, the blank page has the words "Compose" and "HTML" at the top left of the screen. Normally it is is Compose. But to embed your Vine video, at the point in your post where you want us to see the video, switch from Compose to HTML. In HTML you'll see all the code. Paste in the embed URL. Then go back to Compose. Your video will now be seen!
