Want to learn new ways to create, share and preserve your memories?

Growing and changing with technology is a BIG part of memory keeping. If you're like me, you desire to learn new ways to grow with changes in media and implement those changes into your memory keeping habits. Video is an important aspect of memory keeping. After all, video is a unique way to preserve live, moving memories as they happen.

There is so much to be said about video as a form of memory keeping. As a photographer, I can appreciate a beautiful photograph of a loved one, but as a memory keeper, my heart melts over hearing the voice of a loved one and seeing them in motion.  Documenting life with videos allows us a glimpse of life in action, with movement and sound, filling our senses and flooding our memories.

Since memory keeping isn't just about scrapbooks and pictures, one of my goals this year was to focus on the video aspect of my memory keeping system. For me, that meant finding a way to preserve VHS tapes from my childhood, managing the digital video clips I’ve saved over the years, and creating more videos this year to document our current memories.

Over the last month or so, I’ve really focused on these three things. I’ve done research about the best ways to tackle these projects and I’ve began implementing systems to help me attain these goals.  Now that I have a plan in place that has already proven successful, I’m here to share it with you!  I hope you’ll join me over the next three weeks as I share my experiences, resources, and tips. I think you’ll find this mini series quite useful and flexible enough to adapt into your own memory keeping system.
