A Trip Down Memory Lane at Persona Paper
I guess this is when we say our goodbyes to Persona Paper and anyone here we might not meet elsewhere online. I am in the process of making sure all my photo essays are backed up as complete web pages so I'll remember where all the photos go when I reconstruct my work on other sites.
This process is bringing back memories, since many things I wrote about I have forgotten happened. This has been a wonderful scrapbook online of my thoughts, my frustrations, my business trips, my medical history, and my photo walks. Don't let these memories escape you. For some of you, this may be the only journal you have.
It's very easy to save your pages complete with photos by using the "save as" tool in your browser. In Chrome, go to the lines in the top right corner of the page and click. Go down to where it says "more tools." Mouse over and click "save page as." Then a window will open where you can choose a file to save to. As you save, two new icons with the title of your post will appear - a file folder that hold all the files that made up your pages, including your photos, and the icon for your browser. If you click that icon after it's safely in your folder, it will bring up your post in your browser just the way it looked live on Persona Paper, except the address is where it lives is on your computer, not on the internet.
Just thought I'd pass that hint along for those of you who haven't done it yet. You wouldn't want to lose all your hard work. Even if our administrators send a file of your work here, it might not be in a form that is easy to use. That was sure the case with what Squidoo sent. Better safe than sorry.
I will miss meeting all of you in our special place here. I'm going to suggest that in your comments you put your user names from any other sites you are on so that we can find you wherever you are in cyberspace. I can be found under my name, Barbara Hart Radisavljevic, on Facebook . My Google + page will have links to most of my important work on other sites if you check the About Me" tab. On myLot I'm bagarad. On Hubpages I'm both barbrad and wannabwriter.
Where can you be found and under what names? I don't know if links are allowed in comments, or it anyone will still care if you put them there.
Remember to copy the contact information from the comments. Comments aren't saved when you save this as a web page. That's too bad, since sometimes the comments are the best part. You might want to keep copies of the ones than might have turned into posts.
So ends my swan song here. I'll be checking in as long as the site is still open.
