I created Dawwdle because I wanted a place to record the fun and interesting events in my life.

Social media can do that, but I’ve soured on addictive algorithms and the social dynamics created by people chasing likes. I know a lot of people feel the same way.

Plus, why should my life be content for some tech billionaire to advertise around? No thanks.

Admittedly, it’s been difficult for me to communicate what Dawwdle is. I’ve tried:

  • Online storytelling for family and friends
  • A fun way to save and store photos
  • Part social media, part cloud storage

Dawwdle takes inspiration from a lot of things – social media, cloud storage, journaling, scrapbooking – so it’s hard for me to say what it is. But I know one thing for sure.

There are likely pictures on your phone right now. Many don’t matter all too much, but the ones that do are a piece of a story. That story is filled out by details only you know, information like who was there, what actually happened, and how it relates to other meaningful events.

Dawwdle was built to record that story, event by event. So if that seems fun, start Dawwdling.
