Blog Book

So a while back - one of my fellow bloggers talked about turning her Mama-blog into a book. Her idea was to turn the first year of her daughter's life into a published book from her blog so that her daughter could read it later on. I thought that was a great idea. I didn't really think about it again until I recently saw this post on Click it up a Notch (my new favorite photography blog by the way!) - she recommended a great website called Blurb. They offer several ways to turn your blog into a book - or just do picture books, etc.

I like it because you download the software for free... it syncs up with your blog ... and then you edit everything on your PC. It's not done online and you have so much control over every aspect of the book. Once you get the book edited, you then upload it and pay for it. It doesn't cost anything until you are ready to publish it. And I have to say, the prices seem very reasonable. I want to do this because I think it would be pretty cool to have Julianna read about her first year through my eyes.

Here is my front cover so far... this could easily change 50 times by the time I publish it but it's a start.

So any of you moms out there who were thinking about doing this - I can tell you it is pretty easy to do - and the editing software is easy to follow along with. Here is the website again: Blurb.


  1. I am thinking of doing this. Very soon!!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! It's something I want/need to do.

  3. Thank you for sharing Skye- I saw the link and was interested but had no idea how much control I would have on what was published (I can rant and I didn't want the kiddos to read it in the future and think I was completely crazy.)

  4. I wanted to do this but didn't know where to start! Thank you so much Skye! Can you believe a year has gone by already?


Thank You for taking the time to stop by.
