I’ve not had much motivation to write here lately, not sure why. Some combination of lack of emotional bandwidth, overhead using (and maintaining) a “heavyweight” piece of software like WordPress, and just general focus on living life rather than documenting every last piece of it.
To that extent, I’ve been pretty pleased with Google Stories, a surely underpublicized piece of technology out there.
It’s pretty brilliant. You download the
G+ app Google Photos app (edit 2 June 2015) to your phone and set it to autobackup. I turn off full-size backups so that all the storage is free. Google Photos “high quality backups” are more than sufficient for most phone photos. (edit 2 June 2015)
And that’s it.
Photos upload automatically in the background, a few days later, you get an email saying your story is ready.
Perfect for the lazy photog.
