Neveo, Our Monthly Journal (& a Giveaway)

*This is a collaborative post.*

Journalling has just taken a new turn for me with Neveo. I started journalling when I was nine years old, then I moved on to travel diaries with photos when I went to university, filled with quotes, pictures and various bits stuck to my journals. During one of my maternity leaves, I would type my diary almost daily and more recently, I moved on to a digital journal, sharing ‘the little things’ on my blog through our monthly family updates or Snapshots and Scenes. I love putting pen to paper (or hand to keyboard) token track of what we do, how I feel and to remember the tiny little details that make me happy or sad. 

Our family memories are recorded online, but my grandparents are not web-savvy and I try to remember to print photos for them a couple of times a year. As we share our lives online, it’s easy to forget that some people just are not there with us on Facebook or Instagram seeing every smile, every bit of mischief the kids get up to or our latest adventures. 

 Neveo is a family journal printed and delivered to your chosen recipient by post every month. It's a lovely photo diary you can put together effortlessly.

Neveo was created to bridge the gap between generations, so that we can share quickly and easily memories with family members who might not be online. Neveo is a family journal printed and delivered to your chosen recipient by post every month. I chose to send ours to my dad’s mum, whom we only see once or maybe twice a year, but the more I think about it, the more I want to start sending it to other members of the family. My father-in-law can’t stand social media, my mum’s cousin doesn’t even have a smart phone and my nan would also love these little updates.

The way Neveo works is really simple. You can use the free app or go through the website on your computer to upload photos and add captions. At the end of the month, Never automatically sort out the layout, create the journal for you and send it to your recipient(s). I can’t emphasise enough how easy it is to do. It took seconds to load the app on my phone and create my account. I just linked it to my Facebook account and it was all ready to go!

Photos I normally post online are carefully selected, edited and enhanced, so I upload some of those favourites through the Neveo website. I’ve also focused more on the moment and been spontaneous for my granny’s Neveo journals. I’ve been taking photos of our everyday fun on my phone, so there are some poorly lit photos there, some slightly blurry smiles and off the cuff moments, but that’s what I want these little journals to be: a mini life update.

It’s a record of our everyday, our normal, rather than just the special moments. In our first Neveo journal, there are pictures of Beanie showing off Mr Nibbles, a shot of Jumpy’s arm as she was having her prick tests done, the girls beaming as they were about to go to their tap and modern class, sleepy smiles and quick snaps on the way to school. 

For the past couple of months, I’ve been uploading our photos throughout the month, but you could also do it all at once. The interface is really easy to use but I’ve found it a tad glitchy at times on the app when adding text. The desktop version is quicker to use to add text in my opinion. You don’t have to upload your photos in the order you want them to appear when using the app or the website as you can move them around (simply drag and drop) afterwards. 

I don’t always write my captions straight away and quite like the fact you can add your photos as you take them and then label them at your convenience before the end of the month. It’s easy to spot the pictures on which you’ve not added the captions as it says “add comment” on them on the app, and when you hover over the photos on the website, the ones with a caption show you a preview of what you’ve written whilst the others show nothing.

You can add up to 50 or 100 photos every month depending on the plan you choose and you can even invite other family members to add photos as well. Potentially, if done collaboratively, the journal could include photos of the whole family in every instalment. The name of the person who added each photo is written above the captions and it’s great when several family members contribute to the journal, but it would have been better without for us as I’m the only one uploading photos. 

Life is busy so last month, I was grateful when I received a reminder that the deadline for adding new photos was coming up three days before the end of the month. It enabled me to add more photos and finish writing my captions. I then received updates about our little family journal when it got printed and shipped. 

My granny in France was really surprised when she received the journal and there were tears involved. She was even more delighted when she found out she’d be getting a little booklet with photos of us for the next twelve months. 

Since I was reviewing the monthly journal, Never sent me a copy of the first instalment. We were all beaming as we were going through our copy of the photo diary. It looks really professional, the layout is perfect and the quality is great. It’s like a little newspaper about our family in November.

    I’d get my daughter to supply the photos so that she can keep a lovely record of my toddler granddaughter & her little sister who’ll arrive in February

    I think I would send the journals to my kids who would then have them to look back on when they grow up. They are 10 and 6 just now

    I would send them to my mum who, like your mum is not computer savvy and likes to physically hold and see things. I also like to see things and find when people come to visit it is much nicer to show photos in an album of some type instead of taking them to my messy office where the computer is situated 🙂

    To my Son’s Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle, Sister and Brother in Law. They all live in Northumberland and we live in Outer London. We see each other about once a year if we are lucky.

    Whilst I get my son to write to his Grandparents once a month about what he has been upto, the photos are shared on social media for Aunt and Uncle, Sister and Brother in Law, I rely on them to show the Grandparents.

    They would love something like this, with the ad hoc photos I choose not to put on social media.
