Test, test. Also known as ‘Distracted Posting’

February 2, 2013


I am lazily watching tv and don’t really have a post idea, so I’m testing if I can load a video straight from the iPad (using the WordPress app) and have it work in this post. It’s probably a really bad idea to type all this text without actually loading a video to see if it works, but I’m weird like that.

Ok, here goes:

Success! And that didn’t take too long – less than ten minutes for a minute and a half of video. (It’s some old footage of the end of a ribbon-chasing session in the basement. I recorded it to show a little 3-year-old girl at school. She is practicing not crying when Mom brings her and looking at the kitties on the iPad is a better reinforcement for ‘a hug and a kiss and have a great day‘ than a sticker. The cats were worn out by the time I got around to filming.)

Nope. Worked on the iPad, but not here. Oh well. No harm, no foul.

Have a nice Sunday!

    Oh feel free to test on us any time!

    And the “Hug & a Kiss” link still worked. How sweet! But I hate you just a little because you have a very nice singing voice.

    I’ve been practicing not crying in the morning at school too. I should bookmark this kitten video and see if it helps.


  3. Kristi Said on:

    Both videos are excellent! Well-done, Lauren.


  4. Peggy Said on:

    Dang. I can’t see the 1st one. I feel left out. I want to see the kittens.


  5. Jane Sommerer Said on:

    I can see the kittens but they don’t move.

    Wait they moved!

      If you stare at them long enough you can see a secret message. The trick is to unfocus your eyes a little bit.
