What to do with photos?

I realized I had multiple copies of some photos on my phone. That's what started this adventure. Well, maybe I should say restarted. Back in time before phones were as smart as they are, I decided to digitize all our photos. I had to use a scanner though. Phones are much faster.

Decisions to be made include:

where to keep the digitized photos for perpetuity. I've already got pix in several places. Too hard to find and not good for sharing. I mainly used photobucket before. I don't think I'll keep it because it's not easy to maneuver.
what editing app to use ( I almost typed software here. How yesterday. ;) )
how to organize the photos.
which ones to keep. I'm trying to approach this like weeding books, but I'm finding it to be much more difficult.

I've tried a couple of apps on my phone.

Heirloom - not bad. It allows you to keep your photos in albums as well as to share them. Lacks an editing component, and it's kind of clunky.
Camera+ - this was more what …

Education in general
Teaching
NC General Assembly and budgets
What it means to be a Christian
Books
Movies
Learning

So, why don't I write so much anymore. Well, I do, but it's on Facebook. That's a shame. Facebook doesn't keep things like a blog does. I could never go back through Facebook and find a post from 9.15.07 to reread. I also noticed that as I progressed through my MLS, writing happened less and less. A habit was broken. Time, energy, topics. Everything revolved around completing course work.

I started writing to work through my childhood, and it went on to absolutely everything else. I am a generalist. I keep  trying to do blogs on specific topics and I fail mi…
