The written word can be very powerful. It can be a great way to express love, record memories and give advice. Many parents have started journals or scrapbooks for their children and many others have started blogs. I have recently come across another way to preserve messages you want to pass on to loved ones.
Letters From Me is a service that allows you to store messages and pictures to be viewed at a later time. Letters From Me was started by a dad who was writing letters to his daughters so that they could read them in the future. He was saving them in an e-mail account but then one day the e-mails were lost. He set out to create a better way to save messages for them. The result was Letters From Me. You can read more about his story here.
You can write letters to be read after you have died, or on a special day for the recipient such as graduation, a birthday or a wedding day. There are two way to get messages into your account. You can go to a their webpage and select the tab “Send a Letter” or you can send an e-mail to the address of your account.
This has so many different applications. A spouse could write letters to their significant other and leave the login information in their safety deposit box to be read after passing. A parent could open an account for their child and give the e-mail address to all their family members and they could send letters into the account to be read when the child graduates high school. You could just keep a journal for yourself.
The best part is the service is only $9.99 for life. Without getting too technical, they currently have enough funds locked into escrow accounts that will keep the servers running for 10 years if they never make another sale. So you can rest easy about your data staying put for a long time.
I actually just lied, the best part is they are giving away 5 accounts to 5 of my lucky readers. Enter below, it would even make a great gift to any new parent.
Good luck everyone. It because you keep clicking and voting for me as a Top Dad Blogger that I am able to bring you contests like this one. So keep voting and maybe one day I can give away a car. Hey, it’s my blog, I’ll dream big if I want to! Thanks for reading have a great rest of your week.
