Jamie Livingston – Photo of the Day May 26, 2008

I was Stumbling (StumbleUpon) and found MentalFloss’s post about pics that he had found, and the research he had done. This is a very touching story and an awesome way for others to know more about Jamie.

Here is a little excerpt from MentalFloss:

What started for me as an amusing collection of photos — who takes photos every day for eighteen years? — ended with a shock. Who was this man? How did his photos end up on the web? I went on a two-day hunt, examined the source code of the website, and tried various Google tricks.

Finally my investigation turned up the photographer as Jamie Livingston, and he did indeed take a photo every day for eighteen years, until the day he died, using a Polaroid SX-70 camera. He called the project “Photo of the Day” and presumably planned to collect them at some point — had he lived. He died on October 25, 1997 — his 41st birthday.

And, in Reply to MentalFloss, Hugh Crawford (Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn: Jamie Livingston) a friend of Jaime’s this was written:

Yesterday because of the intense volume of traffic to Jamie Livingston’s Photo-of-the-Day site, the site crashed.

Hugh worked on it all day and night and it seems to be up and running. I hope it stays that way. “The site is barely able to deal with the number of people right now. Please be patient. If you experience a problem, just try again later.”

Jamie Livingston (1956-1997) took a Polaroid every day for 18 years, including the day he died in 1997.

He was an amazing artist who’s project seems to have captured the hearts of tens of thousands of people on the Internet.

I highly recommend that you visit this site, if for no other reason, just to see and share moments of another persons life, with all the joy and sadness we all encounter. I am hoping with my little snippet here, that it will help build the curiosity and the views to the website (only to allow others to share a moment of time).

There is also a YouTube video of some of the photos, which is an awesome representation.

Busy? Blogging? Writing…. January 26, 2008

I have so neglected my little blog here, and hope to get around to posting on a normal basis this year.  I currently write for several other clients which leaves me very little time.  I was able to hire some of my personal work out for my other sites, in order to help me catch up and get into a more regular posting schedule.  Hopefully that will allow me to post here on a more frequent basis.

 Currently, I have 3 sites, of which are: Scrap-n-Craft.com, AskAnissa.com, and Molly-Mormon.com.  I also help my husband with his sites, and the sites of his partners, and those sites are listed below:

Bill’s Personal sites:

OnlineSecurityAuthority.com

OSA Blog

OSA Forum

Bill’s & Partners Sites:

AgingParentsAuthority.com

KeepingOurChildrenSafe.com

YourIdentityDefendIt.com

All of these sites are Authorities in their niche.  If you are looking for information and resources on keeping your children safe, online security, online dating and relationships, ID Theft, taking care of Aging Parents, a place to discuss online security issues and a place to discuss issues with MySpace and other social networking sites, craft and hobbies, resources for small businesses, answers to craft and hobby questions, online resources for mormon helps and many other resources visit one of the above sites, and watch here at my blog for resources and musings for me.

First off….this is my first Official Review!  So, I hope I remember everything, and do this Review it’s due Justice!!

 I was Stumbling and came across the site of Tiny Happy and what I found on her blog was so Creative! She recycles old childrens books and uses the pages that are falling out to put on bags that she puts her handmade crafts in when she sells them. Now, for a more accurate and better description of “how and what” you should go and check out this page on her site.

Now, time for the Review!  I liked a lot of her pictures, her crafts, and the way she writes, and for her originality!  I am going to do my Review mostly on her Craftiness…and give TinyHappy a rating of
