Tell Your Story

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s easy. Start by writing a story you’ve told before. Or grab a favorite
picture and tell the story behind it.

After you sign in, Porch Swing puts you into your first story. Give it a name and a chapter number and start writing. Save your story, add pictures if you’re ready, and start your next story.

Porch Swing cures writer’s block with lots of questions (we call them
memory joggers) to give you lots to write about.

Porch Swing automatically gathers your stories and creates a website (we call it Your Storysite) for you. It looks a little like the first screen from the Brady Bunch, with each chapter in its own box. We give you a chance to give your Storysite a title and picture that goes across the top. You can also store videos and audio recordings.

As you write each story, you hit Preview My Book to see what it will look like when it’s printed. When you’re ready, hit Print My Book and confirm your list of chapters, add the title and cover pictures, and your hardcover book will be sent to you, normally in 2-4 weeks.

We recommend 6-12 stories. Stories usually are around 4 pages each including pictures, so that gets you a 24-48 page book!

Yes. the website provides a step by step process to get you from start to finish. And you
get a free 15-minute session with a Story Coach just to make sure you’re comfortable and confident. Additional Story Coach sessions are available for purchase.

Sure! They make terrific birthday or anniversary presents. Buy one for a
loved one to encourage them to write their story. A life story is a terrible thing to waste…
