For all of 2009 i've tried numerous methods in recording my life. As in writing in a paper based journal, using MacJournal, recording a quick capture YouTube video, or opening up Garageband once every few days to simply record my thoughts. It's safe to assume my hard drive information will last me for decades; as I prefer storing all my photos (5000+) on a digital medium as opposed to an album in a closet at home where you never know when the worst may occur. (Of course I have a backup drive too which saves my most important files, i.e. documents, photos and home movies.) The truth is I'd like to be able to look back at these younger days (I'm 21) and relive the times. For a while I would open up iMovie and record a video once or twice a week, and upload it to YouTube. For a while I wrote in MacJournal on a daily basis. Currently i'm walking around with a cell phone in my left pocket and an iPod Touch on my right. Friends have suggested I ditch the iPod Touch and get that Flip HD Camera.... Personally, I'm a big pictures and home movies kinda guy. Essentially what i'm saying is I don't really care for writing in a journal (anymore), I used to do it all the time and admittedly it's nice to read up on old entries from years prior but photos and recorded short snippets speak volumes to me. And having a 500 GB HD on my Mac I have ample space to store them all. However, this post isn't about me...I'm super curious as to you guys and your methods of recording your life.
