Hello Artfully GF

To add video to your blog post you have to use the "Embed code" found on the video site.

1. Find your video on Youtube (or on another service such as Metacafe).
2. Copy the "Embed code" you will find on the site.
3. Create a new blog post and click on the "HTML" tab in the toolbar (the last tab on the right)
4. Your post will then be shown as HTML and you can paste your video code there.
5. Click on "OK" to save your changes

Your blog post will then have the video embedded in it and you can publish your post by republishing your site.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.
