For quite some time, I've been wanting to get my blog printed out in book form! I've even started working on this project once or twice - but wow, the time investment for the amount of content I had and what I wanted was big!
First of all, I have to tell you that my blog is b.i.g. And, I've been blogging for nearly six years. So, David suggested that I divide the books up into two year segments.
I began on my first blog book for 2005-2006, it took me several weeks to edit my book and get all of my posts and photos the way I wanted them. And, it came to a whopping 300 pages! Yes, that is just for the first 18 months.
There are a few companies that allow you to print your blog into a book. And, I checked into at least two. Now, I will admit to you that no site I checked worked according to directions. After lots of e-mailing the help desk back and forth - we finally got this worked out on Blurb. My sweet blog friend, Katy, likes this site for her blog books.
Now that I have received my first book printed out - I am so pleased with the quality! The pages feel good quality and the printing is great. This will truly be a great keepsake for years to come! I've already had so much fun going back through everything to edit this and now that we have it printed out.
Getting this book printed out was not cheap - but what a treasure to have!
I'm hoping to finish a book for 2007-2008 and for 2009-2010 sometime during this year.
