Start by gathering the photos, videos, audios and stories of your life.
DIGITIZE all your content; scan your photos, convert your analog videos and audio recordings to digital files and transcribe your audio interviews and recordings.
NAME all your digital content according to standardized date-oriented format, ie. YEAR-MONTH-DAY-PERSON-PLACE/ACTIVITY.
By dating all your digital content as you save it on your personal computer it will automatically appear in chronological order. This will help you to easily keep track of the items that you upload in the same order so that everything appears in your TIMELINE in chronological order as well.
4. UPLOAD & LABEL
UPLOAD all your content to LifeHistoryApp.com. As you upload your items, give each item a TITLE and a TIMELINE DATE. This will automatically place your content in the proper order in the timeline of your life. Also enter your commentary about each item that you add to the system. You can type it in directly or cut and paste it from other documents. This will provide explanation and context to each element that you add to your life story.
You can insert external links to your life story in the ADD CONTENT section of your private workspace. You can also add hyperlinks to images or words in your commentary or JOURNAL to YouTube or Vimeo videos or other related websites or web pages.
You can record VIDEOS or AUDIOS to your autobiography or history in the ADD CONTENT section.
7. ADD MEMORIES
Use the MEMORIES section to remind you of times in your life that you want to comment on and include photos, videos and audio files to enrich the story of your life. You will find that there are eleven sections in our MEMORIES module for the various logical times in your life with lots of questions to remind you of what you may want go include in your autobiography.
REVIEW your timeline and edit any item you need to in the FILE EXPLORER to reposition by changing the TIMELINE DATE, or editing the commentary/Journal Entry as needed.
SHARE your timeline or any item in your timeline with friends or family. They will be able to view whatever you share with them but they will not be permitted to make any changes.
PRINT your timeline as an Adobe PDF file and edit the PDF file in Microsoft Word to adjust and fine-tune the positioning of titles, page numbers, Table of Contents and Index and you are ready to print your book.
