Everything seems to be moving online so why should telling your life story be any different? People always want to share their memorable experiences with others and until now, an autobiography has been the most common way to collect them. Story Of My Life aims to change that by creating an online storage space where your life stories can be kept forever. Just as we take delight in finding our grandfather’s old journal, future generations will be able to take the same pleasure in finding our stories online.
When you sign up to the site, you’re provided a landing page from which you can manage your stories and journals. You can use the free space available or purchase ‘Forever Space’ which gives you additional storage capacity. The site allows you to create networks (such as family, friends, alumni, and so on) and join groups based on particular interests.
While promising to keep your data “forever” seems unlikely, the Foundation behind the site has pledged to keep up with the latest technology so you can always get access to your data. In addition, you are able to name Guardians who can access your space if you become unable to do so. Story Of My Life is an interesting concept, with lots of stories already available for browsing.
