I think everyone makes a time capsule at some point in their elementary school years. I remember doing my first one when I was in 5th grade. I put my favorite book, beloved BonneBell balm, Valentines Day card from my crush, and packet of Nerds into a box and buried it deep, vowing to open it again 10 years later. After 10 years passed, my then-teacher gave me my capsule back and it was as if I had taken a time machine back. From the book to the balm, I remember why I loved these things so much and it made me think about that little nerdy girl who is a big part of who I am today.
That's the beauty of time capsules- they act as messages tying your past, present and future all together in your beloved objects. This week, I want you all to create your own time capsule, but for your blog.
IFB Project #30: Create a Blogging Time Capsule
Getting started for this project is pretty easy! Print out your favorite posts or pictures, make a list of why you love to blog, and place other memorable mementos into a box and pick a date for when you will retrieve your box. Two months, five years, you pick the date and don't forget it! Store the box either deep in your closet or under your bed and leave it there. When it comes time to open your capsule, you will be reminded at how much you loved your blog, and why it became a major part of your life. Plus, you can proudly show it to your family and friends.
Tip: it's best to tell a close friend or family member that you are doing this project so they can help you remember to retrieve it. I don't know about you but five years is a long time! I might forget if I don't have help.
