  1. I’m so glad I found this article! I have a YouTube channel and am finally gaining some confidence in creating videos. Right now I’m just making them in iMovie and using the music there. I had no idea YouTube has an audio library! Good news because I’m getting tired of the iMovie “Playful” theme 😅.

    I just subscribed to Adobe CC so I can advance to Premier. Still working through tutorials on that one. It isn’t as hard as it looks.

    I need to know more about YouTube. Do you have any more articles about video creation? I’m subscribing to your blog.

    1. Hi kay!

      Glad to hear that! I create this blog to help newbies in technology field also like youtube.

      As answering to your question,

      I hope to write about more articles including videos creation. I think Adobe Premiere is the best for video creations. But you just need some advance skills to work with it. I recommend you to try “Wondershare Filmora”. It has some handy simplified features. 😊

  2. Thanks for the info! I have been thinking about adding a YouTube channel to our blog and this is something I was curious about but hadn’t looked into just yet. Now I know where to start!

  3. I was wondering about using music with my videos. I see such professional videos and I’m such a newbie. I wanted to find out about using music, etc. and jazzing them up a little. Thanks.
