We are seeing a huge increase in those interested in documenting life in with the Project Life method of memory-keeping. On Friday another shipment arrived to Amazon – our largest order to date – by a landslide. In fact, when we placed the order, we felt that our huge quantities might be a little too generous and we hoped the products would sell. And then Friday came. And Friday went. And we sold out of a few items in just a matter of hours.
(By the way, another order of even more plastics – nearly twice as many as Friday’s shipment in fact – is well under way. We expect that shipment to arrive to Amazon.com by late April. If I could get it here faster, I would. I will have more of an update on the timing of other products in the next couple weeks.)
So what does all this mean?
To me it means that you guys get it. It means that Project Life truly is a solution for those of us who love to document life with pictures and stories and anecdotes and memorabilia – but we simply don’t have time for scrapbooking in a time-consuming, artistic, detail-oriented way.
To me it means that you value your memories and you value the hobby of memory-keeping … but you value your time the most. You want to document life but you don’t want to spend hours and hours putting your memories into books. You want to live your life to its fullest. You want to cultivate a good life.
To me it means you are thrilled about how Project Life is helping you and so you can’t keep it to yourself. You’re telling your friends, who then become interested, and they are telling their friends … and, well … you know what I mean. For the record, we are so grateful to all of you who are spreading the word. Project Life is 100% a word-of-mouth thing. Our growth does not come from any paid advertising whatsoever. What we earn goes straight to the next re-order of products, as well as the development of new products. Trust me, we are in the thick of new product development right now.
Kudos to you. Here’s to each of you who is making the effort to record your life, no matter what your approach or style. Project Life or otherwise. Here’s to each of you who understands that the actual process of recording life can be an incredibly rich experience, but it doesn’t have to take away from actually living your life.
If you haven’t visited our About page recently, we have updated it so that anyone interested can quickly get to know a little more about us and what we do. For a more detailed story about how all of this came into fruition, there is a link to my recent interview on The Digi Show. Something to listen to on your next walk. : )
