My Birthday Chronicle
You just enter the recipient’s name and birthday. They email you a “newspaper” highlighting their birth year. The file is PDF, easily printable and suitable for framing.
The PDF resembles a newspaper with several sections:
- The weather forecast, as well as the day and date of birth.
- The president at the recipient’s time of birth heralding the joyous occasion.
- World headline news from the year.
- Celebrities born on the same day.
- A blurb announcing the World Series Winner
- An article about consumer prices for that year
- Academy Award winners
- Top music hits
- And the Chinese Zodiac
My Birthday Chronicle offers both a free and a paid version. The paid version allows you to append a brief greeting, such as Happy Birthday and allows you to give it a vintage look. They are free, but made on a first-come first-served basis with paid users taking priority. Paid users receive their Birthday Chronicle within 24 hours. Free versions may take up to 10 days. They just ask that you tweet or share Birthday Chronicle to your Facebook wall to get access to the free version.
My son’s 22nd birthday rounds the corner on May 14, so I made one for him. His was the paid version, so I opted to go with the vintage look. I also ordered the free version for myself. The paid version arrived in my inbox within an hour. I received the free version the next day. I really prefer the vintage paper’s look. If you are looking at a newspaper that is 20 years old, it’s not going to look crisp and white. The vintage seems more authentic.
From what I can tell, the charming weather forecast exists for purely aesthetic reasons. They don’t ask where the recipient’s birthplace and weather can vary wildly from one location to the next on any given day. For instance, it is 35 degrees and snowing where I am today, but in the 80’s in Florida. However, it does round out the paper quite nicely and all the news is accurate. My son was tickled pink to get his and learned quite a bit about his “page of history.”
Everyone can get a free Birthday Chronicle for the price of a tweet or Facebook share.
I am giving away a paid version. I will email a code to the winner that they can redeem on the site.
