What is a digital legacy plan and why do you need one? In 2019, Angela Crocker and I co-authored Digital Legacy Plan, A Guide to the Personal and Practical Elements of Your Digital life before You Die (Self-Counsel Press). A two-time Top Seller on the BC Bookworld lists, our book offers solutions for the practical, social, emotional, and technical aspects of your digital legacy. The online environment has changed how we live, and it has also changed how we die, grieve, and memorialize. We include best practices for online memorials, social media and mourning and digital etiquette in death. Recently, Christophe Trappe interviewed Angela and I. We covered a lot of territory, including the importance of preparing a digital legacy plan for the sake of your loved ones.
The information in our book is vital to you if you have any kind of online presence at all— and who doesn’t?— and most especially if you are running an online business or community. There are many important questions to consider. What is your legacy? Do your loved ones know your preferences and wishes? Do they have access to your passwords another important online information? What about your online avatar and digital immortality? Care to live forever on the internet?
Listen in on the podcast and find out about death and dying in the 21st century and the key elements of an effective digital legacy plan.
