Digital Scrapbooking

One of my goals for the summer is to get caught up on my scrapbooking. I generally do it in chronological order; right now Jack is still a baby in my finished albums, so I obviously have LOTS to do. I have to admit, having online photo albums at Facebook and other sites keeps this from being a big priority than it might be otherwise (AND a monkey on my back… so… I’m not complaining a bit).

I have kept scrapbooks and photo albums of memorable family vacations and events for as long as I can remember. I am the type of person who holds memories dear but I am so active and busy that keeping photo albums helps me to remember all of those special moments that I might otherwise forget about.

My daughter introduced me to the online photo sharing website called Flickr and the social networking website Facebook. I was interested by Facebook but honestly I was more enthused about using Flickr to upload my favorite photographs using the hughes net satellite internet.

When I started to replace my traditional photo albums with Flickr I realized how much bulk I had accumulated over the years with my paper photo books. Being able to replace those photo albums with online photo albums has streamlined my book shelves and the shelves are no longer sagging with the weight of extra photo albums.

This online photo sharing website has also allowed me to keep in contact with friends and to share with them visually what I have been doing. Because we can exchange photo albums online and view each others pictures it is also easy for me to see what they are doing in their lives as well. Technology and great hughes net packages certainly has expanded my world and my view of social networking on the computer.

  1. I've been doing annual photo calendars with the occasional book thrown in. I tend to just make photo books on Walmart's photo printing website - so much easier than me pretending to be crafty.
