National Library Board (NLB) asked is I would pledge the Cycling in Singapore blog to the Singapore Memory Project (SMP). They are tying to “collect memories that are already manifested in existing online channels.”
So you needn’t rewrite your blog posts or resubmit them to SMP, they will figure out how to extract relevant content. The definitions are vague so they rather err on the side of caution.
It’s al explained here: http://www.iremember.sg/?page_id=2822.
My friend Ivan Chew had told me in December last year to please pledge as many of your blogs as I could, so just now I submitted these, which I manage:
- Cycling in Singapore (with Chu Wa and Paul Barter) – http://cyclinginsingapore.blogspot.sg
- Habitatnews – http://habitatnews.nus.edu.sg

They had explained,
“The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a national initiative to collect, preserve and provide access to Singapore’s knowledge materials. Spearheaded by NLB, the SMP aims to build a national collection of content in diverse formats (including print, audio and video), to preserve them in digital form, and make them available for discovery and research.”
