The Blog Book

As I have mentioned before, my sister in law, Megan, surprised me with the neatest gift about a month ago.....my 2008 blog published in a book! I love this book so much, that I plan on publishing my blog at the end of each year. In order to prevent this from being an overwhelming task in the already busy month of December, I am already preparing. Each time I post on my blog, I copy and paste the post into a word document. When I am ready for publishing, all I will have to do is upload the word document to the publishing site. The site Megan used is Lulu.com.

Here is the front of the Blog Book

This is what it looks like on the inside.

  1. It looks great! Last year, I had Dec. 2006 (when I started my blog) through Dec. 2007 printed in a book from Blurb.com. I seriously need to do my 2008 book! Like you, now that I had a blog book published, I knew I had to keep doing it.

    I should look into Lulu as well.

  10. Me again!! I just peeked around a bit and saw that you have a Keepers and Contenders club, too!! I began a Keepers At Home club last year, and we meet every Thursday here at my home!! We are having a blast!! Today we will start etiquette, and say goodbye to one of our girls whose family will be heading out to the mission field...possibly Africa.

    We have all girls, so the Contenders is up to someone else ;o)

    We seem to have a lot in common!!
    Blessings,
    Becky
