Before I became so invested in this blog, I used to be pretty good about keeping a personal family blog. I keep thinking I will get my life in order enough to post there again. It served a lot of great purposes. I could share info with family and friends, but more importantly, it served to record my family history. I was so thrilled when I first learned that there was a company that could “slurp” the photos and information from my blog and turn it into a published book!
Blurb can publish any kind of book, but the ability to transfer the blog to the book is what really got me excited about Blurb. Twice now, I have taken the blog and put it into hardback form. (You may note that 2006 is missing–so I’ve got another book or two to make).
This process can be pretty fast if you use a standard template, etc., but you can customize fonts backgrounds and everything else. Which of course, I do, which means that spend a long time putting the books together. But here are some examples of the different kinds of pages I put together in these books.
There were too many fun pages I wanted to show you! I can’t even begin to tell you how much my kids LOVE looking at these books–examining every picture and reading every word! I really wish I had one for every year!
But you should know that even if you don’t have a blog, there is some kind of book you will want to make with Blurb. You can make a book of your Instagram feed in no time flat. You can also upload your Facebook photos, make a recipe book, and who know what else!
