There are many moments in our life that got erased from our memories as we grow older and older. Those lost memories would become more obvious when you realize you could not even remember what you had for lunch yesterday. What more your childhood, pre-school, high school, college, university or even your working years? Everyone would have those precious moments that sparkled laughter with full blown happiness but how many of us actually remember well enough to tell our children? Moment by moment, day by day, month by month and year by year, those memories became clear marks in our life. Do all of us have records of all those precious and colorful moments of our lives?
There are 3 must have gadgets in life that I would not forgo – computers, digital cameras and camcorders. With the advancement in technology, more and more of these gadgets had become affordable for many families. Parents had begun to realize the importance of preserving the memories of their children in whatever media they could get their hands on. Frankly speaking, I could not remember much of my carefree childhood years although I had some photographs taken when I was a child. Those were static images then but now I want my children to have more than that. I want them live in action. Many years down the road, they would look back into their growing up years and remember all the wonderful years they had gone through. These recorded images would remain as their nostalgic moment for them to treasure and to share with their own children.
You would have realized too that I had place computers as one of the main gadget in my life. With internet access, that’s also one important gadget in archiving all the memories in the free online diary or should I say blogs. We have Blogger, WordPress, Blogsome and many more that would allow you to record your daily activities. On top of that, you would have many online photo albums such as Flickr, PhotoBucket, etc, that would allow you to store your photos and videos. For those with camcorders, YouTube would be a great place to store your videos to share with everyone on your unforgettable moments. Isn’t it great to have all the state-of-the-art gadgets to make our lives more memorable?I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
