Online Family Organizer: AboutOne Review
I was given a chance to review AboutOne, an online family organizer website devoted to helping busy families organize information and documents, and also share memories and milestones with family and friends.
What Is This Online Family Organizer?
AboutOne bills itself as a digital filing cabinet, where you can store all kinds of records, such as for health and school, and also photos, your child's artwork, and more.
The beauty of this digital filing cabinet is that not only can you rid yourself of saving every scrap of paper, or having to try to find a scrap of paper when you need it, but then all your documents and information are accessible, by you, online from any web-enabled device whenever you want or need them.
In addition to storing actual physical documents you can upload photos or create basically a diary of events and facts you want to remember about any member of your family.
There are a lot of videos that have been prepared by AboutOne which give you a better idea of what this online family organizer does, and how it works. If you are interested, you can watch the AboutOne demo videos here to learn more about its many feautures.
My Favorite Part Of AboutOne Is That It's Like An Online Way To Scrapbook
When exploring AboutOne, not only did I think it has great potential to be a useful online family organizer, but I really loved the special touches that make it basically a way to quickly and easily scrapbook your family memories online.
I'm the first to confess that I never get around to scrapbooking my kids special memories, although I always have the best of intentions. I am proud that I even take pictures sometimes, as busy as things get.
However, my family and close friends want to know what is happening with the kids, and see pictures and hear stories. I am bad about keeping up with this stuff, meaning Grandma doesn't always get her "brag photos" as quickly as she wants. AboutOne can solve this problem, and it is quite easy to do.
First, as you go about living your life you can add photos and other documents merely by emailing them to AboutOne, so you can send things on the go right from your camera phone, for example.
As you add memories, journaling, photos, videos and events they are all added to your Family's Bulletin Board (see example picture below).
This is a fun way to see and remember all the stuff going on in your family's lives, and one of the things I enjoyed most about adding stuff to AboutOne.
Then, to make it even better you can choose a time frame of events you want to share (and pick and choose what details to share), and AboutOne will automatically create a family newsletter for you that you can email to friends and family.
I think of it as an easy way to send an interesting Christmas letter without a lot of effort on a much more regular basis.
In addition, AboutOne has the option (for an additional cost, of course) to convert all your digital scrapbooking into a hard copy photo memory book, meaning you can actually then have a scrapbook of memories your child and you can hold in your hands together, and look at!
I confess I haven't played around with all of this online family organizer's features, bells and whistles yet, but I have enjoyed the parts of the program I have used. The online scrapbooking and sharing features alone make it something I want to use again.
