5 things why we are memory keeper at heart

Ever since I got involved in scrapbooking way back in 1999, I thought memory keeping was scrapbooking and scrapbooking was memory keeping. And I thought only creative people can do scrapbook and preserved their memories. I used to focus on making my page pretty compare to telling the stories.That is totally a myth. 

Memory keeping is part of us, it's on our blood. We as a human want to tell our stories and preserved our memories in any way that we can including drawing symbols in caves.



#1. We take photos almost every day. The invention of camera phone really increase our tendency to capture almost anything including #selfies, what we eat, where we went, the weather and many more.

#2. We share our status and update our current activities on Facebook, Twitter and Whatsup

#3. We share our photos or videos to our friends and family via flickr, instagram, photoblog, tumblr, photo bucket, picasa and many more

#4. We write about our daily activities, feelings and thoughts either in our planner, journal, dairies and even on Facebook page

#5. We blogged or vlogged about our daily lives, our likes and dislikes constantly. Mostly younger generation love to do this. Most of them love to watched Vlog on youtube channel compare to reading long articles about it. I bet in the future we are going to catalog these  content and it will have historical value.

Either we like it or not we are memory keeper at heart. The only problem with all these technologies, we have all these memories and tidbits of our lives scattered around the virtual world without any prober home. We need to do something about all these memories, document with intentions and document them in a tangible form which we can refer back from time to time. And if you have a smart phone with you, you can document your lives easily with these tips.

Hopefully after reading this entry, you will realise that you are a memory keeper, you create content almost instinctively. Creating and capturing memories and shareable content has become our responsibility. We do have to be careful about what we share especially on the cyber space.
