My 1st Blurb Book!


I'd wanted to turn my blog into a book for a long time & I'm so excited that I finally did some of it! It took HOURS & HOURS but it's totally worth it! I'm so glad to 1] Have my blog backed up. It's unlikely that it would happen, but I have heard of people losing their entire blogs! That would be devastating to me since the MAIN reason I blog is so that my family has a history (don't get me wrong - I love the social aspect of it). 2] My family will be able to look at this book years down the road & be able to enjoy this "scrapbook" chocked full of memories & pictures. I haven't printed copies for my kids yet, but sometime I will. That's one thing that's awesome about Blurb (the printer I used). You can go back & order additional copies of your book at any time. I highly recommend Blurb to anybody who is thinking about printing your blog. But like I said it took me a really, really long time to make a book. If you're into a simpler look (and I mean MUCH simpler) check out
Blog2Print. I think you could probably get your book done in a matter of minutes! Here's my 1st book:

I've used blurb to print a book of my digital scrapbook pages. I love it!

Heidi said...

I know that Nicole Christensen does something like this too, and I have often thought of how neat it would be to have all of these memories saved for my kids. I think I will have to check it out! Great idea!

Chelsea said...

i loved yours. I looked through the whole thing (I didn't read it all, but I looked at all the pictures...what I typically do with most books anyways).

Reed, Liz and the kids said...

I use blurb to print mine every year. I love them!

Awesome, it takes a lot of work but is so worth it.
