How to Write a Biography
To learn how to write a biography for yourself or for a family member, start with my biography templates that are fill-in-the-blank and full of memory-sparking ideas and help with the general topic of how to write a biography.
Another simple way to write a biography or autobiography is to do it online. Our Story is a great way to write, share and preserve a biography.
Our Story is a new service that I discovered. It is free to sign up and it uses a unique timeline
process to help you organize family stories, a biography or your own autobiography.
Consider Recording A Biography on CD
It's a Fact...We Speak Faster Than We Can Write
The subject of How to Write a Biography is a topic I think about a lot. I am always looking for ways to make it easier and quicker for people to do. Because I know that if something isn't easy, most people won't attempt it.
I recently came across a new and unique service called Life On Record.
This service is great as a solo project or for working with a parent or other friend or relative to record
their biographies to CD!
How I Have Used It
One of the ways that I used Life on Record was with my siblings. What we did was this...
We wanted to create a recording of our childhood memories, especially the ones that mostly involve mom and dad. We planned to give this recording to them, on a CD, for Christmas.
First thing that I had to do was get my two younger brothers and younger sister on the same phone call. This, by itself, was a lot of fun. We live apart from one another and it had been a long time since we were "all together"...even if it was just on a phone call. (I used the near-free Internet phone service called Skype, by the way).
With all of us on the phone, I then dialed the Life On Record phone number, and soon we were reminiscing, talking and having a great time. Life on Record recorded the whole thing. Afterwards I just logged into my Life On Record account and downloaded the phone call recording to my computer. Then I burned our conversation to CD.
Life On Record offers an optional service to put everything on CD and then send it to you. I would have probably opted for that, but Christmas was too close. I saved time by burning the CD myself.
Anyway, my experience using this service was very rewarding, easy to use and it was a blast.
Oh, and mom and dad loved the CD of our reminiscing. It turned out to be a great gift.
I've used this service and corresponded extensively with the people who operate it. I can
truly say that it is a very well run service with great customer support. If you want to
