LifePosts – a website where you can tell the story of family & friends


I began writing at the LifePosts website this morning. LifePosts is a new site, with absolutely wonderful story-telling tools. I found it very simple to quickly tell the story of my sister’s wedding, which took place in November of 1953. That’s most likely my earliest memory. Now I need to find the pictures, and add them. I’m sure they’ve been digitized, but it looks like they were never captioned.

According to the site, “LifePosts’ mission is to ensure that every person’s life story can be beautifully told, vividly celebrated, and preserved.

“LifePosts’ easy-to-use storytelling tools enable you to create beautiful memorials, birthday celebrations, and digital keepsakes for all of life’s important milestones.”

The site is built on Four Pillars:

  • Create
  • Collaborate
  • Share
  • Preserve

At the moment, all entry is free – and the posts will stay up forever. It’s also backed up at the Internet Archives. At some point in the future, there will be a fee structure of some kind, but that hasn’t been worked out yet.

I love the site. Check it out.
