Backin It Up With Carbonite!

Wow, I think they should pay me for that tagline! 🙂

Seriously though, almost lost my laptop a few weeks ago…and all the files that it contains…scary scary stuff. Thankfully, I always back up my client’s work to Dropbox, so that material was safe.

But what about everything else?? I was freaking. My husband has been after me for months to check out Carbonite. As I frantically tried to back up everything on my laptop to a flash drive, I finally gave in. For a mere $59 per year, Carbonite pulled everything from my computer (files and programs) and stored them on their site. It regularly updates whatever I’m doing and saves it. I can access my files from any computer, anywhere in the world. Lovin’ it!

I wonder though….it’s kind of scary having everything ‘out there’ on the Internet. What do you think?

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
