I have a wonderful program I want to share with you guys! It’s called TinyYears. TinyYears is a FREE online diary that allows you track all of those special moments in your little ones lives! You can either create an account by logging in through Facebook, or just join through the site.
TinyYears was founded in October of 2011 by Ron Ben-Chen from Jerusalem. After Ron’s second daughter was born, he wanted a way to be able to capture all of those special moments. So, he created TinyYears to offer others a safe, fun, and entertaining platform to let others record and share those diary-worthy moments! If you have multiple children, you can access all of your diaries in the same page, as well. To create a new diary for a child, there is a button towards the top of the screen that says “Add Diary.” I think this is a great thing, because you won’t have to log in and out of different accounts to access diaries for different children.
There are also many different themes you can choose for your diary to make it even prettier! You can have polka dots, stripes, flowers, and several others! There’s something to fit the style of every child!
My favorite features of TinyYears is that you can add the date and a corresponding picture to the moment. For example, my daughter just ate her first strawberry by herself. So I recorded the date, 5/15/2012, and I got to post this picture along with it:
I love that I won’t have to search through all of my pictures when I think of this moment, or any other moment I capture; the picture will already be with it! I so wish that I had this online diary when my daughter was first born! I’m working my way through all of her pictures, though, and am planning on adding as many moments as I can.
Another one of my favorite features is that you have a specific email address that is linked to your diary. If you take a picture on your cell phone, all you have to do is email that picture to the email address provided and it will show up in your diary! I take a lot of my pictures with my phone, so this will be very useful!
The best thing to come with TinyYears is that you will soon be able to have your online diary made into printable books so you can have a hard copy format! This is a feature you will not be able to find anywhere else, I am sure! What I plan on doing is that when it is released, I want to get a book done for each year of my daughter’s (and any future children’s) lives. I think that would be a wonderful way to look back on her life by each year.
Again, the site is free to use and has some wonderful features! I hope that you will take advantage of them! What is your favorite feature?
