Telephone Audio Journaling an Emerging Trend in Capturing Stories.
With busy lifestyles more people are turning to telephone audio journaling - calling into a number and recording thoughts and stories. It's being used for special occasions and as an alternative to written journals.

Alaa El Ghatit, the founder of the company explains, "People always have a phone nearby, so it's perfect for baby journals, spiritual journals, and for anyone who wants to preserve a thought or story when inspiration hits".
The LifeOnRecord Weddings and Events Service captures the well-wishes and anecdotes that surround special occasions. Even if they can't attend, guests invited to a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion call a toll-free number and record their sentiments and favorite stories about the guest of honor.
"There's is power and emotion in hearing a voice that you don't get when you read words written on a page", El Ghatit explains. "You can't pass a card around the country for everyone to sign, and for most people talking is easier than writing".
With both services, the recordings can be preserved on a keepsake CD, managed from a Web site, listened to on a telephone, automatically emailed, and podcasted directly into iTunes.
"Although you frequently see people using digital and video cameras, the meaningful, day-to-day stories are being forgotten. LifeOnRecord makes for convenient, easy-to-operate memory keeping that meets the needs of today's lifestyles", said El Ghatit.
Tom Zengeler, owner of Zengeler Cleaners, the Midwest's largest chain of dry-cleaning stores, employed LifeOnRecord's Events Service to include the community in celebrating its 150th anniversary in business. The company communicated its LifeOnRecord number on its Web site, through the newspaper, and by direct mail to its 18,000 customers.
"We've been there as our customers prepared to look their very best for important job interviews, weddings, christenings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs," said Zengeler. "As a result, our families share some wonderful and significant memories."
"LifeOnRecord provides a truly unique way to have our customers participate in our 150th celebration,"
In addition to helping companies celebrate milestones, LifeOnRecord's Event Services are used for birthdays, weddings, graduations, births, retirements, reunions, and more.
