Our Blogaversary Celebration and We are Giving the Gifts!

That’s right, we are celebrating our blog’s one year anniversary!  This year has been a success in the launch of our blog and we have been honored to have so many bloggers join us to share their stories.

Our CEO, Michael Chang, came on board to share his insights on how home movies are collecting more than dust and his personal experience of how the cloud could save a marriage.

We participated weekly in the Wordless Wednesday linkup around the blogosphere and enjoyed spotlighting individual blogger’s photos each week along with sharing our behind the scenes photos of what was taking place at YesVideo.

Throwback Thursday has become a hot trend around YesVideo since we love reminiscing through vintage home movies.  And while we are on the topic of celebrations, did you see our Throwback Thursday video of Rachael blowing out trick birthday candles?

We featured guest posts such as 12 Traditions for Creating Birthday Memories, Making Memories Family Traditions and how home movies and online sharing is the best way to keep in touch with family even while living overseas.

The employees of YesVideo joined together to offer expert posts monthly.  From giving you a behind the scenes tour of YesVideo’s security measures to a timeline of personal cameras – film to digital.

and that’s just to name a few!

The best part of this past year was connecting with so many of you through Facebook and Twitter, seeing your personal memories be shared and being able to be a part of preserving those memories for you!

To celebrate the past year and to get everyone excited about the year ahead of us we are giving away FIVE $100 YesVideo transfer service gift cards.
