“There was never yet an uninteresting life” – Mark Twain

By Rolland Love

Candlelight can bring comfort when someone we care about dies, but memories sustain us for a lifetime. Every life is a reservoir of stories. ImaStory can help you write your own memoir or guide you through interviews with parents or grandparents. Think of it this way, when a person passes away, it is like a library burning down. Have you thought about this? ImaStory can help you capture your life’s written journey, your story saved for future generations.

After presenting a number of life story workshops I discovered if you ask people what they would like to have gotten from their parents and grandparents the majority would say, “More about their lives.”  

Based on the strong interest in legacy writing and the slim number of people who write anything I’ve teamed up with software consultant and we’ve created an interactive program called ImaStory.  

Thanks for logging into the website and letting us know what you think of our life story creation. http://imastory.com/

Sincerely,

Rolland Love

Testimonials “ImaStory”                                  <http://www.imastory.com>

Imastory http://imastory.com/ is an AWSOME website! Gary Brock, Director of Education, KCPT Kansas City Public Television

“Chronicling lives brings rich rewards” story written about a couple of Kansans Rolland Love and Mark Andresen who are promoting a website called Imastory that is a fabulous learning experience for all students. Joe Robertson, education reporter  The Kansas City Star

Rolland: Your site is a great, valuable idea and I wish you enormous success with it!  I perused some of the stories, and it’s refreshing to read “ordinary” people talking about their extra-ordinary lives.  So many details of who we are as human beings are lost because no one gives an ear to people who are not writers. imastory.com is a tremendous service to humanity. All the best, Debra, Linkedin Member – France

Rolland, I can’t think of anyone better to bring out the stories in all of us and ImaStory is the perfect tool to facilitate the process.”– Cris Siebenlist, Retired English Teacher

I watched the tutorial of ImaStory and I LOVE this idea!  My son is in grade 2 and he is really enjoying writing and would like this.  It would be great to get some of our family heritage in writing.  I’d like to also see if his school would do this.  Thanks for sharing! – Hilda, Linkedin

I Am A Story (aka: <http://www.imastory.com> is the next generation of social networking.  The website is well designed and is a user-friendly way to share our individual life histories and times that no other outlet provides.  Another stroke of genius from Rolland Love. I’ve already begun to chronicle bits and pieces of my experiences and found that the gratification gained from writing down my expressions was extraordinarily satisfying.  I especially like the share (co-author) feature in the website that allows others to read what I’ve written.  I must admit I also like the fact that Imastory is Free.Dewayne Knott, Lt. Col., USAF (Ret.) Explorer and Play-write

THIS IS AWESOME!!!! I have a couple of ideas where we may be able to incorporate this program into the projects we have scheduled for the rest of the year. – Adrion, Site Coordinator, Central Middle School

    G’Day! 10Daybookclub,
    On a similar note,, I recently wrote an article called:
    everything About Social Networking-Im Sure You Have Heard About Social Networking
    I’m sure you have heard about social networking, after all it is incredibly popular worldwide.
    With social networking sites people can connect with friends and family, meet new people

    and join communities. There are many different social networking

    websites and some are targeted to specific niches while others are more general. Even those

    general sites may contain groups that are to bring together likeminded individuals. If

    you are looking to meet people that share the same interests then social networking is what you

    need.
    You can read the rest of this article at:

      If you spend 30 minutes or less reviewing Imastory you will be able to use the program for stories for the long haul. You don’t have to write stories if you already have some in your archives just cut and paste after you log in an click on My Story.

  3. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I
    find this topic to be actually one thing which I feel I might never understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very extensive for me.
    I’m taking a look forward on your next post, I will try to get the cling of it!

    Actually, each item on the menu has pull down instructions. One you log in just click on My Story and start writing.
