    These are great Jack – really clear and really useful. When you publish them, could I direct my colleagues to them to help them with our new school blog site? The only thought I had was that perhaps the embedding photographs one needed to say “embedding photographs using photobucket”. I am a complete blogging novice (only been up and running for two weeks!) and have not got on to adding pictures yet but I use picassa and don’t yet know how that works. Great use of vimeo too btw!
