Stuff to Experiment With
Also bear in mind that the original path shape doesn't have to be just a 2D shape. Try experimenting with your circle by applying an EditSpline modifier, selecting SUB OBJECT, and VERTEX in the little drop box to the right of that. Once done, you can use the move tool to move the vertexes of the circle up, down, left, right, whatever. You'll notice the text moves around to follow wherever you place those vertexes.
If you want an object to merely follow a path without bending and warping (say - a rocket ship flying on an obstacle course), you need use a different method - a controller (instead of a modifier), which we will go into in a different tutorial.
