I’ve been using Flickr as the medium for sharing my own life’s photo journal project. If you look on my Flickr page, I have a handful of collections (with a couple more in mind to add soon) in the right column. I called one of those collections, My Life’s Photo Journal.
Within that collection I have lots of sets. You can see those sets in the screen shot below. Some sets are the photos from each quarter that I want to print for scrapbooking or framing, or share online. Other sets are by topic: our food story, my self-portraits (a new project of mine), etc.
I love the ability to share in sets and collections this way! If you click on a set, and a photo, you’ll notice my keywords and journaling carried over from my photo manager to flickr.
Not only is this a great way to share our life’s stories with family and friends who are interested, it’s also another backup in case I lose my photos in a disaster at home (as long as you’re uploading full-res photos, that is).
Take a look at any of the sets within my collection and see if this is something you might want to do!
