I’m nothing if not sentimental. I live for recording my life…probably the draw of blogging. And sometimes that is simply inadequate. Lately, I have more reasons to really want to record my life. I started out with baby books for my kids that mostly fizzled out. It’s not that I’m a bad mother, I’m simply a busy mother. And with a new baby on the way, I wanted to do better this time.
So when I heard that there was a new way to save and share my life, I had to try it out. LiveOn is an incredibly easy to use website that enables users to create a timeline of their life, record memorable events, and share and save for posterity. There are multiple ways to upload photos, including capturing images from Facebook. This can be a real time saver. In addition, there is room for descriptions, comments, and captions making it ideal for recording the various events.
I think one of the aspects that I like best about this is the idea that there will be a history of my life for my kids and my grandkids. And it will be recorded in a way that they are comfortable with…digitally, online. They won’t have to worry about hanging on to loads of albums or boxes of pictures. Instead, there will be a record I created that will take up no storage space at all and will allow them a history of my life as I lived it, told only the way I can tell it. Of course, they do take a little license and create videos with these memories and put them to music. I rather liked it. I made my first memory of our wedding.
In addition to creating the timeline, there are also time capsules that can be created and delivered to one person on a specific date. I’m thinking about creating a time capsule for my husband on our one year anniversary, recording all the special memories I have of our first year together. Somehow, I think he’ll really like that. I have to tell you, the possibilities are endless. There are so many special things to do with LiveOn that I know this is a product I will be using for years to come and sharing even longer than that.
Give it a try. While they are offering free accounts, there is one great service that they charge for. Know how you probably had a lot of life before it all became digitized? Well, LiveOn offers LiveOn Rewind, a package where they will take all your photos and video and make them into digital copies and DVDs. The coupon code for that is: cgc14.
Have fun making and maintaining your memories. I’ve just barely begun…
