I'm afraid to make a recommendation at this point because I simply don't know enough about your sites. It's kinda like asking a doctor which leg should be amputated, him never really having examined you closely.

Take a look at the traffic statistics for both web domains. In most cases, you want to keep the one with the most volume. The only time you wouldn't keep the highest traffic domain is if one was getting better quality traffic.

For example, which car salesman would you rather be? The one that does 20 test drives a day and only sells one car or the guy who does ten test drives a day and who sells two cars?

Figure out which domain is currently your best domain. Then, take the second domain name and point it to your blog.

I don't think you're using Google Analytics (google.com/analytics/) on either of your sites. It's free and very detailed. If you can add analytics to your web sites, you should. After a month or so, you will have a strong understanding of the amount and type of visitors you are getting and then you can make some educated decisions about where to focus your web efforts.

Cheers,
Matt

Matter of fact, I'm gonna work on one right now.
We had a problem uploading .wmv file to youtube......Jesse's google Picasa idea has worked, but it does seem limited to what you can do... I would like to upload power point to a youtube video..... With the power point you can do really nice stuff... I have not had any luck converting a power point file to a mpeg which youtube prefers......

Movie Maker is easy to use and gives you a number of format and file type options when you publish your movie--size, quality, etc. My guess is that your problems uploading could have been overcome by adjusting the output options of your published media file.

I've uploaded two videos to YouTube made on Movie Maker:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Both are roughly 60 seconds in length, with source files around 12 MB in size, with the following specs:

Display size: 640x480
Aspect ratio 4:3
Frames per second: 30

I've heard no more than 2 minutes is the general rule for web video--but for a simple slide show I think 1 minute is plenty.

Hope this helps.
