WebBiographies is a new site that lets users write about their lives.   With the genealogical craze these days, there are quite a few web applications with similar goals.

However, WebBiographies seems to make it easier than most.  It could probably be used by English Language Learners as an ongoing project to write their autobiography or about an autobiographical incident.

There’s an easy way to make a family tree, and then numerous categories, like work, education, travel, holidays, etc.  You then get your own url.

Of course, with this site, as with many or most sites I highlight in this blog, students can use pen and paper to do as good a job, if not better, as they could do online.   Many of the links on my site just offer a change-of-pace and an opportunity to develop a few computer skills at the same time.

I have the link on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Biographies.
