episode description

033: Why Documenting Matters

This is a very candid, unscripted, open, and honest conversation all about why documenting matters. Through a series of questions BH asks BP, we learn how she went from “not being a scrapbooker” to being a very intentional documenter. BP also shares her purposes for documenting and how documenting has changed her life, from the overall big picture down to her day-to-day living. This conversation will get you motivated to start documenting … or document with more intention than ever.

A couple golden quotes from this episode:

Pause and experience the tiny moments inside of those bigger things.

Documenting is a way to open your soul and to create something that can connect even if you’re not there.

    Hi, Becky and Becky,

    First, let me say that I enjoyed the podcast today. I could actually see the connection between this episode and what I am trying to do for my granddaughter. Could you please tell me what you do with the documenting that you do? Do you put it into a Project Life album in physical form? Do you print from the app? Do you do photo books? I’m really just curious about what you do after the documentation is done. I use the app and print my pages, plus I also keep a journal for my granddaughter that tells her the events of her day, gives bits of information about me, tells stories about her parents, etc. There is no way to put all this in one album. So, I was just curious about what Becky H and Becky P are doing with their completed documenting.

    Re: your photo tips/workflow class, is it very iOS-centric? Does it cover Android at all?
