Do you use facebook in your personal life? I certainly do.
It’s really the only way I get to keep up with my friends and family on a regular basis. Since 2009 I have been updating facebook with little snippets of my life and it’s all still there…just wanting to be seen again. When I did my Week in the Life project in August, I used status updates from my husband’s page as well as mine to help narrate and journal the week. So I thought, why not bring it into Project Life as well?
If you want to capture all your status updates in a neat and tidy way, there’s an app for that!
From your facebook home page, either type my status history into the search box or copy/paste this url into your web browser. http://apps.facebook.com/mystatuses/newestfirst
You’ll end up with a text list of your statuses that can be organized by newest or oldest. It’s not super pretty but it’s orderly so I ended up copy/pasting each year into a word doc and prettied up the text and formatting there. Now I need to figure out if I’m going to make a template that I can print out several statuses for the week or if I will just write them on journaling cards. Hmmm…I think I’m feeling up for a little design work. I will update this post when I have a template to share!
So how’s everyone doing on their projects?
