What’s Your Story?

When I sit in Starbucks and watch the people go by, I marvel at how diverse New West has become! People from all over the world have made their home here.

Not only do I see people walking by, but I see stories walking by! Each person has a story to tell, whether they have lived here for generations, or only arrived last week. Let’s take a look at some of the exciting options that technology provides for sharing your story.

A Blog

A blog is just a personal website that allows you to write little snippets whenever you are in the mood. You can write short stories about your past, what is going on in your life at the moment, and about your dreams for the future – or any combination of these.

An eBook

An eBook is technically the easiest and cheapest way to publish your story, and you can even get paid for it. If you started compiling your story in a blog as mentioned above, you can simply combine these as chapters in your eBook.

A Video Biography

Although technically a little more complex, capturing your story on video can be extremely rewarding. These days many people are more willing to watch a video than they are to read something.

Putting It Together

An even more fascinating possibility is to combine all these technologies. You can write regular bits in your blog. Then you spice it up by including regular short video clips (technically it is then a vlog or video blog).  Then when you finally compile your blog posts into an eBook, you can include links to those video clips.

If you have a story to tell, there are many interesting ways to go about it and sharing your story with us. If you would like to know more, let’s meet at Starbucks soon!
