Blogging Books


Yes, I published my blog for 2009 and 2010 into a book, it was easy with Blog2Print. http://blog2print.sharedbook.com I know at first I thought it seemed a little pretentious to do it but . . . What the heck. I thought I would give it a try and so I printed 2009. Of course it cost a bit much, one book with shipping but it was a special treat to me. The book came and looked so good I decided to order 2010 and some friends also wanted a copy of each. (That and a coupon did help with the cost of the second books.) I know I am old fashion but I like a hardcopy to hold so it didn’t take me long to read my books and enjoy my work and the memories all over again. I know I should have shared it earlier but I decided I would wait until the second book came. That way I could show you the cover and the inside together in a picture.
It has turned out to be a really different way to show my work and to read about my activities over time. When I put the books out during my show last week I found that many people picked them up and had a look. As you can see the pictures and drawing came out very nicely and you can use your pictures for the cover, the back cover and even a dedication page. The company is totally integrated with blogs done on blogspot, typepad and wordpress, so if you want to preserve your thoughts and pictures for prosperity or give yourself a special treat, give it a try.

Thank you. They are great and your are right, I will enjoy them. It is really interesting already to go back and read my early posts from 2009 so I am sure it will be even more interesting in the future.

Yes, Martina, they have been a good idea. I find that people go through them when I set them out at shows and they have been a good keepsake for me.
