This weeks question is:
Have you ever printed or considered printing out your blog?

While following blogs I stumbled upon this blog post over at Little Bit Funky.  I love to scrapbook, but I am very behind.  While I still plan on scrapbooking my photos, I decided that I would try out blurb and create a blog book.  I ordered my book last weekend.  I have decided I am creating one for every 6mths worth of blogging.  Which makes sense for me because I started blogging in July 2008.  I have 3 books started, but it was easiest for me to finish the last one.  Blurb was easy to use and I loved that it imported all of my info off my blog.

It arrived this afternoon by FedEx.  I LOVE it.  I now need to finish the other ones.  =D

I did print off my blog! I haven't done the last 6 months but I printed it off with my printer by copying and pasting into Word. It took awhile and used about a cartridge of ink, but it turned out nice. How much does blurb cost for making a book?

Susan said...

Wow, I didn't realize you could do that! As a book L.O.V.E.R I think it would be FAB to see my posts in print! I think my kids would enjoy it too!
Stop by, I'm having a little giveaway!
I'm off to check out Blurb.
Blessings!

That is awesome. I didn't know you could do this. Enjoy your weekend!

Braley Mama said...

Wow that is such a great idea! I have never done it, but will:O)

Steph said...

I had heard of this but have never actually seen one. Looks beautiful!

Gale said...

Heavens no! My husband would kill me. But then, if my blog were more about our family stuff, maybe that wouldn't be so bad. I save facebook for that.

When I'm pregnant someday I would love to blog about my pregnancy and then print it out for my children to read. I don't think I want to print out my current blog.

Melanie said...

I have thought about it, but I haven't done it. yours looks nice!

Serendipity is Sweet said...

I've thought about it, but not really seriously considered it. Seems like a great idea though. So glad yours turned out well.

Midday Escapades said...

That is about the coolest thing I've seen. I love the way you photographed it too. I will have to think about doing this. Thanks!

p.s. I hope you get the gift of a family vacay to Florida!

Kimberly said...

Wouldn't this be a fabulous gift idea for someone whose blog you love, and who loves to blog? I may have to do this some day...

I've thought about it, but not for everything on my blog.

Maybe in book form.

blueviolet said...

I absolutely love that idea! I'm headed to Blurb now!

Maria said...

Wow, that really looks cool! I've been thinking of getting mine printed, mostly because I've been slacking in updating the kids' baby books and the blog has pretty much everything I want to say in there. Thanks for a great idea!
