Hello.

Hi guys, I know I haven't posted in a really long time and that every attempt to make a schedule fails. I think the thing is, I have no idea of what to write on this blog. When I first started it, I just posted lots of random things and I didn't really care. But now that I'm 13 instead of 11 things are just different. Life is generally harder and more confusing now, and sometimes I just get so off track, I can't go back to where I left off and keep going. I'm not sure if that makes any sense. And its not just about me not keeping up my blog, it goes for a lot of things in my life. I don't even know.... 

I think what I'm trying to say is I'm sorry. 

But now I'm going to move on from that, and stop starting all of my posts with apologies for not updating. 

Because, just like everything in life, I need to work it out and even if I can't get back on track, I need to keep going. 

And right now, looking back at all that, I feel really stupid. I dunno. 

Moving on.....

How To Change YouTube Vidoes Into MP3 Files

One of my friends asked how to change YouTube videos into MP3 files and put them on iTunes, so I wrote out this whole long list about how to do it. After sending it to her, I realized that I might as well turn them into a post so I help the world of Bloggers in a small way! I hope you find this useful, and if you have any problems with any of the steps, just email me (purplepixieblogger@gmail.com) or drop me a comment. I'll get back to you as soon as possible! And I'm sorry if there are any grammatical or spelling mistakes, I'm not going to take the time to proofread. xP


1. You'll need to use a computer that has...
Fast Wifi
Space (aka GBs)
iTunes
Windows Operating System


2. Go online and open 2 tabs.
Tab one- Find the song on YouTube that you want. It's best if its the official (look for VEVO) music video or lyric video so the sound is better quality

Tab two-
http://www.youtube-mp3.org/



3. Copy and paste the link of the YouTube video into the box on the converter site. Click the 'convert' button and wait for it to convert. When it has finished, click 'download'

4. When it's done downloading, a 'download' box should pop up and the file should be at the top. Right click on the file and select 'open containing folder' 

5. After clicking 'open containing folder,' a new window/folder should open up with a list of everything you've downloaded. The MP3 file should be highlighted. If it's not, go find it in that folder! Right click on the file and select 'cut'. Go onto the music section of your libraries and make a new folder called 'MP3 Files' and put the file in there. I make the folder so it's easy to find the MP3s, and so they don't clutter the Music folder.










6. Open up iTunes. Drag the MP3 file into your iTunes library, and there it is! 

So that's it for the basic stuff. Next will be about naming it, adding the artist, album name, album cover, etc.

7. Right click on the new song in iTunes (For me my iTunes is usually on the Albums section so it's a blank album). Select 'Get Info'. Then you fix the name of it and stuff.
For this I'm using Kiss You by 1D, so I'll do the info. 
Name- Kiss You
Artist- One Direction
Year- 2012
Album-Take Me Home
Track- 2/13 (If you go online or on the iTunes Store you can figure out what track number it is, and how many songs there are. Example- 6/10)
Genre- Pop



8. Click 'save' and it will close. Right click again on the blank album picture that contains the song. Select 'Get Album Artwork' and wait a few seconds. If it finds the artwork, then it will load onto the album. If not, right click again and go back to 'Get Info'. Go onto the artwork tab. 











Go online and google the album cover. Once you find the one you like, right click on the image and click 'copy image'
Go back to the iTunes and paste the image into the box. Hit save.


And there you have it, in 8 steps!
 If you have any questions please email me or leave a comment. Again, I apologize for any grammatical or spelling mistakes, I'm not editing today.
