Now Is The Time To Backup Those Christmas Pics

Save Your Holiday Photos To An Online Backup Service


Don't Lose Those Precious Memories

If you have children then Christmas was probably a pretty active time around your house. And if your family is like ours, that means every laugh, smile and gift opening needs to be captured by the camera(s).

Well, the Holidays are over, the wrapping and boxes out in the trash (and maybe a toy or two already), and the good food is gone.

January blah’s.

Are you still carrying around those precious photos on your phone, that you could lose or break at any minute?

Have you downloaded those pics off of your SLR camera to your computer – the one with the hard drive that, despite how new or old it is, could die at any second?

Why Worry When You Can Sleep Easy?

What I have found is the longer it is between the time that holiday photo is snapped and someone actually takes the time to rename the photo, tag it, and sort it so that it’s not just one huge directory of files named PICT0001.jpg…PICT9999.jpg, the less likely that it will ever happen.

And if you can’t find a photo when you want it, what’s the point in having it?

And if you can lose everything in one power surge, or one piece of 35 cent electronics going “poof”, then you have to ask yourself if the photos mean anything to you.

The Logic Of Backing Up Photos To Online Backup

Maybe you can see where I’m going with this.

If you can’t find it when you want it, or you can lose it too easily, then what’s the use in bothering to take that holiday photo of the kids opening gifts or the grand kids tearing the paper off that toy you bought them?

You would be better off to just enjoy the moment and not be distracted by trying to get that photo (and possibly annoying everyone with the antics of trying to get a good picture).

But since you DID take that photo, I’m guessing you DO CARE about preserving the moment.

Kids grow so quickly, don’t they?

    My heart always goes out to families who lose everything in a fire, flood, tornado – something that seems to be happening more and more these days.

    You can replace a house but it’s all the important things and family photos are definitely irreplaceable – a great idea!
