Turning Your Blog into A Book.

 

 

My second Blook came in today! I am so excited. Of course I found two errors as soon as I opened the book for the first time. It’s AMAZING what you can spot when looking at something on paper as opposed to on the computer screen. I should have edited one more time. But all in all, I am happy.

And let me just say that if you are a blogger and don’t do some other sort of family documenting (like Creative Memories), this is the IDEAL way to get a family memory book without having to use zigzag scissors, fancy paper, and stickers (although I do love stickers. . . and so does Ali!! Maybe I should rethink).

Anyway, you must check into it! Blurb is a publishing company that has software that can “slurp” your blog into book form. You simply download your blog into Blurb using their slurping software, and then format your photos as you’d like them to show up.  Their software is very self-explanatory and fairly easy to work with.  Here’s where I wrote up some of the details and quirks about the process, and here’s the link to my first blook. If you have any other questions, let me know! I’ll be glad to help.

Without further ado, here are some excerpts from my second blook!

Here’s the cover:
This one’s exactly 200 pages long. It’s a bit thicker than the other one:

  1. That’s really neat! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that.

    BTW, I found your blog through the toenail art! lol

  2. What size font did you find works best? Which font did you use? I’m using Arial 12 so far, but I’d like to use BluePrint, but I don’t know if that’ll translate from my computer to Blurb. Any ideas?

  3. That’s really nice. A friend of mine do a book for each vacation they take. What a gift to pass on!
