Creating Your Own Blog Book

IMG_2203

Please tell me that on any given day a thought hits,

usually unrelated to what you are doing at the time,

and you think (in no particular order),

“I need to call her now,”

or

“I need to sign up for Carbonite even though I don’t understand how it works,”

or

”I better get all of my blog posts printed before something happens to them.”

And so I did.

I now have 4 volumes of White Spray Paint posts for years 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

The online company I used was Blurb.

The process was simple and easy to follow.

Great idea! A friend's daughter did this of her wedding and gave to them. They loved it and cherish it forever. Thanks for sharing!

I have created three books of my poetry, a huge birthday book for my sister's 70th birthday and another for my oldest son's 53rd birthday last October. All using BLURB!!

I am head over heels in love with them.

Can you do this with your blog posts-not just the photos?

Ann said...

I've been doing this too for the last four years, but with Shared Books. It feels like such an accomplishment to see them all in print.

I have never heard of getting blog posts in print, but what a great idea! Your own personal 'coffee table' books, they look amazing and what fun to browse through actual pages.

Bonnie said...

Thanks for reminding me I need to update. I had a book done a while back but it is not current. I need to check on the name of the company I used and look into your company too.

Hi Laura, I have started to make blog to book so many times and found it to be complicated. Perhaps I was going about it wrong but I would love to have them. As you know, lots of work and love goes into blogging and having a book(s) just seems so nice. I am going to check into Blurb. You now have your treasured blog to enjoy forever.

Kelly said...

Those books are so neat! Now you don't have to worry about anything happening to your pictures in the future.

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Nancy's Notes said...

Love your blog books and oh my goodness, they look so classy in black! Know they look beautiful sitting anywhere in your incredibly impressive home!
Love to you, sweet friend.

Cottage and Broome said...

What a great idea. I have made books before but not one of my blog. I'd be sad if something happened to the posts so it would be a great idea to capture them in a book. Thanks, Laura

When I grow up I want to be just like You. GYB party following you girl.


Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 588 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
