Uploading Video and Link, plus cool Animation

To upload a video to our blog:
You need to get the video from a streaming video database like youtube.com or mediamill (http://mediamill.cla.umn.edu/mediamill/...but we'll talk about mediamill later). In youtube find the code to the right of the video that is under the heading "Embed". Copy this code in its entirety and paste it in your blog post, and viola! Your video will appear on our blog!


Here is the link for the animation:
http://theblackheartgang.com

Here is the code for creating a link:
< a href="http://somerandomsite.com/" target="_blank">http://somerandomsite.com< /a>
(there is no space between "<" and "a" or "<" and "/a")
