so i hope you are not tired of notes yet! i had an idea while i was driving one night to make nick a ‘web scavenger hunt note book’ where i made him some small handwritten notes that contained web addresses he had to go to, in order to find the real note! i thought it was neat and would make it fun for him to find the notes on the internet. some of the web notes were images, but i did record a couple video notes too, which i probably won’t be sharing cause i was super silly and i’d be embarassed 😉
this note directed nicholas to the playlist of songs i selected for him.
we’re talking, lots of cheesy ‘love’ songs
this note contained “an important reminder” which had him go here
this note contained a video message!
the final message had him go to a website for some cutsey images i collected
and placed on a website for him to read
so anyway, if you want to do something like this for a friend or someone special, it’s easy! to make the web notes, i used iweb and my web camera for the videos. if you have iweb + a mobileme (or .mac) account through apple, you know how easy it is to create and publish websites.
if you don’t have a mac, that’s okay too! you will need a place to make websites for your ‘web notes’ (you can try google sites.) and a web camera (if you want to include video notes)
the notes included:
– a really cheesy lovers playlist! (via playlist.com)
– 2 video notes.
– 1 picture note.
– 1 note of found images.
but get creative! create the web notes you want to include, get them organized, then create a book of notes and simply write the web addresses out on each page.
oh, the last element i used was this site, which shortens long web addresses into something like, “fly.to/thispage” so you can have a shorter URL in your written messages in the book.
