Blog to book




www.sharedbook.com is a wonderful site to create a book from a blog. The division is called blog2print. Thought I would try it with my first year entries. There were only five months worth of blogs so I thought it would be a cheaper version to see what it was like. It ended up being forty eight pages worth. (Guess I'm pretty wordy!)

The book came much more quickly than I thought (within days) and I am totally delighted with it. I got the paperback edition and the quality of the book is superb. It is printed on nice quality paper and the pictures are great. A hardback version is available for ten dollars more.

This is a great way to turn an online journal into a hands-on book. (I started to print them out myself a while back, but this is far superior.) There is even a dedication page and a table of contents. A twenty page book is only $14.95 and extra pages are 35 cents each. 2009 is my next book. (As talky as I've been I better save up my money for all those extra pages.) And of course 2010 is almost over.

Well worth the money. Check it out!

Oooh, nice idea!

Please remember to bring this to the next show-and-tell of our Western PA Chapter of the PMC Guild (whenever that ends up being...).

Thanks!
