Blog Book Info

Several of you have asked for more information about how I did my blog books. I can't take all the credit for this one - my friend Beth's sister-in-law (Vonda) recommended Blog2Print to us. She used it to order her blog books and was SO thrilled with them. I've had several friensd make books in the past using, and their books are GORGEOUS, but I kept putting it off because it requires you to create your book post by post, picture by picture. I didn't feel like it mattered to me THAT much to devote THAT much time. The books are incredible looking - for you creative types, maybe you'd LOVE it. It would have driven me mad.

Blog2Print basically is a one-click thing. I entered my blog address, selected which dates I wanted the book to encompass (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31 for each year, except 2009 which was too big to fit in one book so I split it into 2 volumes), and then hit "go" and it creates your book in a matter of minutes - literally! I changed the cover color and the pictures that go on the front/back of the books, but that was it! So 15 minutes later, I was done! Right up my alley!

You totally should do it - it's so worth it to have my blog - my journal essentially - in paper form. I LOVE it!
