Some Events in the Life of Kate Pettis Kerr

Earlier this month, I posted a Schulte timeline made at TimeRime. For this one, I used Timetoast. I found Timetoast much easier to use and I think the display is more attractive. Timetoast also allows me to customize the size of my embedded timeline.

In addition, Timetoast gives me the option to view my entries in list form, which I find very useful. Although there is no Print option associated with the list itself, it can be printed using the Print command in your File drop-down menu.

Very cool! I was thinking about trying out TimeToast for my COG timeline too. I love the interactivity :-)

Oh my gosh, Jasia, I'm glad you mentioned the COG! I completely forgot about it with the Games on, and now I'm thinking I may need to do another timeline, because I think I'd like to write about Kate's mother for the COG. I know less about her, but she does have an interesting story.

I'm glad Thomas mentioned Timetoast--I hadn't found it when I went looking for a way to do timelines, and I like this a lot better than the one I found. I was a little thrown when I first created my account and then didn't find any instructions on the site, especially since I'd already used TimeRime and found it a bit less than user-friendly. But Timetoast turned out to be simple enough not to need instructions. It's pretty self-explanatory as you go along.
