Encyclopedia of People: Build a Digital Legacy with Your Own Encyclopedia Entry

Not too long ago, books were the best source of credible information. In particular, reference books, like almanacs and encyclopedias, were hailed as the most credible resources for research papers, school projects, and anything else that required tried-and-true factual information. 

These days, the internet has changed a lot about the ways in which we obtain information. We no longer rely solely on books as credible sources of information. In fact, even libraries are jam-packed with people using computers to surf the web! 

The beauty of the internet is that it’s updated constantly and it’s available to a huge portion of...

Have Readers Who Follow Your Life Story

With the rise of social media over the last couple decades, there is a heightened emphasis on the concept of gaining followers. Websites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook allow people to follow you and your user activity on those sites, and for you to do the same to others.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have followers who had a greater interest in your life than just scrolling past your latest posts or status updates?

Wouldn’t you like to hear more real life success stories from real life people instead of wasting your time reading the pointless back-and-forth on other social...

Important Aspects to Include When Telling Your Life Story

Important Aspects to Include When Telling Your Life Story

When I think about writing my life story, I always find myself stopping to ask myself, “What are the most important aspects to include when telling my personal story?” 

I ask myself this because I wish to use my time wisely and write about the aspects of my life that people will find most interesting and most impactful. 

There is so much to say about one’s life, and narrowing it down to the most interesting and most impactful material can be hard to do without a second (or third!)...

I Want to Be Remembered Forever

I want to be remembered forever. Do you? If you’re reading this, the answer is probably “yes.” It’s totally natural to have the desire to live on after death, at least in some capacity.

Life is fleeting and impermanent. In fact, no one gets out alive. The knowledge that we are going to die is constantly lurking in the backs of our minds, making itself known every time we have a “close call.”

Knowing that our day will come sooner or later puts some degree of pressure on us to live like there’s no tomorrow, because we can never be...

The thing about legacies is that leaving one behind means you’re not around to manage it anymore. The message that you leave for others after you pass on will remain as it was on the day you died.

Eventually, you will no longer have the ability to tweak, revise, or enhance it. Your life is only so long, and once it’s over, any unfinished work is going to stay that way – unfinished.

During your life, you must take the initiative to start sculpting your legacy in preparation for your departure. After all, it’s impossible to finish something you never...

How-to-Make-a-Wikipedia-Page-vs.-a-Peoplepedia-Profile

Wikipedia and Peoplepedia are both online encyclopedias, and they both contain articles about people. Based on these criteria, they sound pretty similar, right?

Not exactly.

What you’ll find after delving a little bit deeper is that Wikipedia and Peoplepedia are actually quite different. Wikipedia contains articles about far more than just people; it’s a full-blown encyclopedia. This means that articles on Wikipedia must comply with strict rules and regulations from which Peoplepedia articles are exempt.

As I’m sure you’ve guessed from the name, Peoplepedia exclusively focuses on articles about people, and users are not subject to the rigorous rules and...

What Does It Take to Get Your Own Wikipedia Page

Anyone who’s ever turned to Wikipedia to find out the full story about somebody else’s life has probably wondered how to get on Wikipedia themselves. When we read the kinds of detailed, and sometimes fairly intimate, information that is written about people on Wikipedia, we stop and ask ourselves, “What does it take to get a Wikipedia page?”

For public figures, celebrities, the super-rich, and even the infamous, it seems natural that a Wikipedia page would be dedicated to them. They are likely to be people about which the general public has interest, so it’s not surprising that somebody has...

Find Personal Information About People with an Online Encyclopedia of the Human Race

Peoplepedia is an encyclopedia of the human race. It is basically a version of Wikipedia that solely contains articles about people. These articles accumulate with every new user who joins and shares their life story, so over time, Peoplepedia will gradually grow into a comprehensive encyclopedia of the human race.

People are very complicated beings. We are each a product of our past experiences, and every single one of us operates in a unique way. Yes, culture affects our behavior to an extent, but our behavior is also largely determined by our own decisions.

The best way to get to...
