  1. Thanks Steve for the mention and visuals!
    There are plenty of additional benefits to making this connection... I'm discovering them more and more since I did it...

    Not just the Annotation connection post, but an even more powerful one... still testing how it works/doesn't work right now, but I'll post my findings soon.

    BTW, the comment posting widget here (not your issue I know) still has my pre-connected YouTube avatar (I think) showing for comments. ㋡
