What is LifePosts? Here is the description on their About LifePosts page:
"LifePosts’ mission is to ensure that every person’s life story can be beautifully told, vividly celebrated, and preserved.
"LifePosts’ easy-to-use storytelling tools enable you to create beautiful memorials, birthday celebrations, and digital keepsakes for all of life’s important milestones."
Basically, this website provides registered users the opportunity to write one to many stories about themselves, their family members, or other persons. At this time, it is free to use, but it will likely require a payment in the future.
You can read my finished LifePosts memorial for my grandmother at https://www.lifeposts.com/p/milestone/1067/emily-auble-memorial/lifestory/.
The writing process was pretty easy - I copy/pasted my biographical material from an earlier blog post, which included images, and the images were included in the memorial. There are primitive editing tools available to bold, italicize, quote, add lists, add a hyperlink, add social posts, and add media.
This website seems to provide a relatively simple way for anybody who wants to memorialize persons, or tell their own life stories, the opportunity to do so.
