Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and
voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters,
situations, experiences, and insights."
- Leslie Rule, Digital Storytelling Association
I am a Work-At-Home-Mom who wears many hats. Most of the time I am a
wife and a mom, sometimes I am a Virtual Assistant, sometimes I am an
entrepreneur, and apparently, I am sometimes a Digital Storyteller.
As a blogger, I am inspired to use images, presentations, videos etc that will
enhance the message that Im sharing with my readers. It can be a challenging
task. Finding a picture is easy. Finding a picture that captures a story / an
emotion / or an idea is hard.
Ideally, you use your own pictures, presentations, videos etc. However, you
may not always have something suitable to use. That's where the Creative
Commons license comes in. I recommend that you use Flickr photos with a
Creative Commons to use commercially and to modify, adapt or build upon.
This ensures that your blogs are safe from copyright issues.
I do not know what the future holds for my blogs. There are many things
that I have yet to blog about; people, events, places, food, culture, lifestyle,
home, education, plus plus plus. It doesn't matter. I am quite content providing
chronicles of modern day life as we know it AKA being a Digital Storyteller.
