Blog Books by Blurb

My friend Isabel, who documents her family's life beautifully at Life of the Williams Family recently posted about the blog book she ordered from Blurb. It is the coolest thing ever! You simply download their software which "slurps" the content from your blog and then you arrange it in your book. They even have a helpful video that walks you through all of the steps in a little over a minute.
It seems that the quality is really nice and the prices are very reasonable. They are available in several different sizes and you can even include hyperlinks and comments if you wish. Wouldn't it be nice to have a tangible, hardcover (or soft bound, if your prefer), glossy version of your blog on your coffee table?

What a great idea! We use Blurb to create client gifts of their project before, during and after. But this would be fun for ME!

Joni, if you watch the video, it shows you how to select only the posts you want to include.

You’re so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read anything like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. Really thank you for starting this up. this website is something that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality. Useful job for bringing something new to the internet!
