How to: Add Watermarks using Powerpoint Video and Step by Step Tutorial

Hey guys
If you are like me, you are lazy, busy. You have a million things going on. You barely have enough time in the day to shower, and make lunch for school the next day, am I right? #teacherproblems.

All I want to do when I get home is sit on the couch and snuggle my kid, watch friends reruns and take a nap. I am trying to get better at this blogging thing. I need to dedicate myself to it. I have set my schedule, and mapped out time to blog, to create, to facebook, to instagram etc. Man, this is a lot of work! But, if I am going to do it, I am going to attempt to do it right. I have been working with newer TPT authors and bloggers to help them - I still suck am getting better at it, so I am just honored that they asked me to help them with figuring out how to do some stuff. I was shocked that I actually had knowledge to share.

This leads me to my post, if I will have even less time on my hands, why on earth do I need to take even more time out out of my day to make watermarks on the already daunting blog post- right?   #youarepreachingtothechoir

You likely are blogging because you want people to actually read what you are writing, am I right? If you are blogging and using pinterest to help get people to your blog, it helps them to get to you. You can't depend on other people to pin correctly. There are a lot of dead links out there. How many times have you seen an awesome post and it has gone nowhere!!! Also, let's be honest - people are not always honest. They will take a picture and claim it as their own. You need to be able to show that it is your own! Plus, I love finding an awesome pin, because it leads me to an awesome blogger and I will end up following them! :)

If you have your watermark on your pictures that are floating around, you never know who will see it, and come back to your little blog post.

For me, I found that using power point to create my water mark was the easiest.

I am going to do a blog post that shares with you how to create a water mark, and how I add to photos for blog posts and instagram, or other social media.
I did a video on Periscope, and that video is down below if you want to see how I use Photo Collage App to take my powerpoint watermarks and use this app on my phone to post.

Then, you will see this tutorial STEP BY STEP with voice over IN live video - how about that for some technology!!! Stepping up my game friends!!!!

ok - grab your computers - here we go.

There you have it friends. How to add a watermark. I will say, now that I took the time to make the watermark, it is saved on my desktop folder, and on my phone, it isn't so bad to pop them in. Now, to take Mel D's advice to go BACK and do all my old posts that don't have them.... UGH. Maybe on a rainy day.

I wanted to say thank you those #smallfishteachertribe girls for giving me the chance to help them with their journey.

I want to thank Megan, Ashley and Angie for starting this Periscope journey because it really got me motivated to help and get back into why I started blogging to begin with... to help other teachers, and to connect with other people that are just as crazy as I am.

Go connect with them too!
