Cowbird's full title is Cowbird, a Witness to Life. It proclaims to be ". . . focused on a deeper, longer-lasting, more personal kind of storytelling than you're likely to find anywhere else on the Web." I agree.
At Cowbird, you'll find a way to link stories of the same subject with other stories by different users. These are called sagas. For example, anyone, from anywhere in the world, can list their story with others who experienced Occupy Wall Street.
Another feature is users can easily add a sound recording to their stories, which gives stories a voice--literally. As I explored the site, I found this added feature to be wonderfully moving. You can also dedicate stories to other Cowbird users, which makes stories more meaningful.
I created my first story this morning. The subject of my story is someone I know pretty well--my older daughter, Sophia. I invite you to click the link below and read and hear an excerpt:
The name "Sophia" is of Greek origin and means "Wisdom". . .
