Blinkbuggy Answers More FAQs: Managing a Brood

Question: I have more than one child.  Do I need a separate account for each child?

Answer:  No, you just have to pick the one you love the most. JUST KIDDING (seriously, just kidding!)  We approach this with the view that the memories we capture are all part of one big story with several key characters – our children, parents, grandparents, friends. etc. – and we don’t want to separate the characters and lose the richness from their inter-connectedness.  Rather than multiple accounts, we think a better way to manage memories for multiple children on Blinkbuggy is to have one account and use the built-in tagging system to associate memories with specific children/people.  Here’s an example of how we tagged a picture with two children in it.

Blinkbuggy Reflections: Looking Beyond The Lens

So here we are: Memorial Day (for our U.S. Blinkbuggy-ers).  It snuck up on us once again and, if you’re like us, you find yourself wondering… what just happened?  Didn’t winter just start?   And surely, we are not alone.  Our non-U.S. Blinkbuggy-ers must be asking the same the same thing about their start of summer/winter (? – apply relevant season for your hemisphere) in general, right?

For us, the “surprise” that it’s already Memorial Day causes a sudden realization (again) that time seems to pass so quickly when you don’t pay close attention.  It’s a stark reminder that we really need to slow down once in awhile, take a good long look at what we have and truly appreciate it. This is especially true as we look at how fast our kids are growing. Continue reading


Blinkbuggy Answers Some FAQs

Hello Blinkbuggy-ers! We hope that you are enjoying your time with Blinkbuggy and are capturing some of those little moments with your families that you might have missed or forgotten before. We’ve been getting some great questions from you and there are a couple of FAQs we wanted to address.  

Question 1: Can I export my memories from Blinkbuggy?

Answer: Yes!  Our philosophy is that the memories you put up on Blinkbuggy are yours and Blinkbuggy was designed with that in mind.  We recently added the ability for you to export all of your memories to a file on your computer at any time. This is great for backups and making sure that you have another layer of control and protection to keep your memories safe.  You’ll find the “Export” function on the bottom of your “Account Settings” page as shown in the snapshot below.

Blinkbuggy Features Update

We’ve been hard at work making improvements to Blinkbuggy so that capturing your memories will now be even easier.  We want to share with you some of the improvements (with some screenshots) that we’re particularly excited about.

  • Memory Management and Bulk Editing:  this is a big one! We’ve updated these features so that you can now manage and edit your memories directly from your homepage and you can now select multiple memories at one time and manage or edit them in bulk batches.

  • Export Memories: another big one!  You can now, at any time, export all of your memories to a file on your computer. This is great for backups and making sure that you have another layer of protection and control.  You’ll find this on the bottom of your “Account Settings” page.

  • Google+ Integration: now, in addition to Facebook and Instagram, you can import pictures directly from your G+ account!

We hope you like the changes and would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to comment here or send us a note using the feedback tab on the site.
