A modern day diary – it’s not what you think

Remember the days when you used to write in your diary about grade school crushes and summer vacations? Or maybe you had a box stuffed to the brim with pictures, movie ticket stubs and other knickknacks to remind you of the special moments in your life. You chose to write about and take pictures of these experiences to ensure these moments would remain something you could always hold on to. But as the world becomes more digitized, shouldn’t these tangible representations of your memories evolve into a digital space that can stand the test of time?

Loccit preserves your memories though its private online diary service. Every time you upload content to sites like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, Foursquare and Picasa, the website compiles it into a digital diary that you can view whenever you want. Now the recent promotion you noted on LinkedIn will be combined with the Flickr pictures of your new house as well as the Tweets and Facebook comments of friends’ congratulatory wishes.

A two way street with Loccit

You can update all of your social media profiles at the same time with Loccit, negating the need to log into each one individually. The website integrates all of your social media profiles and collects the special moments you post on each one to capture a complete snapshot of every monumental moment in your life. And when memory fails from old age or because you’re horrible at remembering important details like where you and your significant other had your first date, you have a reliable resource that you can quickly access at any time.

Although the online diary collects pictures and postings that you’ve made public to your network of friends, it is private and allows you to maintain the intimacy of a traditional diary even more so through the reflections section.

Hard back or soft cover, it’s your choice

For those thoughts and feelings you had about your wedding reception but didn’t want to post on Facebook, you can go into your site or app, write a thought and lock it away for your eyes only. And if you still like the feeling of crisp pages between your fingers, you can order a copy of your digital Loccit as well. It’s a great way to capture all of the real-time events you post on a daily basis and preserve them in a sacred space, encapsulated in time, that’s all your own.
