Story of My Life by Eravita is an ambitious social networking site that wants to collect everyone’s life story and link them together. Users are encouraged to write their life story, which they can choose to share with friends, family or the site’s community. The site’s home page lets you search for people and view major events in “today’s history”. Also, Story of My Life has a tool to build your family tree, further displaying their life-history collecting goals.
Users can blog their daily thoughts in what the site likes to refer to as “journals”. You can choose to share your journal’s entries with the site’s news feed or family members or keep them private for your eyes only. The site also lets users share pictures, videos and events with each other.
The site has even created a nonprofit entity the Story of My Life foundation to make sure that everyone’s stories are “secured and never lost”. However, in their FAQs section they state that you must purchase “Forever Space” if you want your story saved forever. The free space is only saved as long as you remain in active user (update your page once every six months).
Competitors include OurStory.
