Over on the Facebook page there was a discussion on how to record or keep The Book of Me. Interestingly, the majority of those in the group have decided to keep their Book digital and I guess that reflects what kind of world we live in.
My own Book of Me is being kept in a blog format. The blog is private, but periodically I may share bits of that blog here with you all. I will though, each week announce the prompt using Geneabloggers and the Facebook page and over on Facebook there can be facilitated discussion about the prompt. That may also appear on this blog too.
I have already set up my private blog and in addition to the prompts I thought that I might record other memories that spring to mind, this includes the few prompts that have popped up on the Facebook page.
I also plan to add scans from the notebooks that I created when visiting elderly relatives. I also think that I might share periodically a photo from my personal collection with details of who and when.
I am going to use the blog tags to separate posts. I plan on using the following tags, although there maybe others.
- Book of Me
- Other Memories
The book of me is a journey. Some of the prompts are basic, others might be emotional and some may be "deep". You do not have to complete all the prompts and you may choose to substitute some prompts. I would recommend you date your individual writings.

The Face Book group is currently set to closed, but once the discussions get underway the group will change to secret allowing comments and discussions to be private among those who are members of the group.
