My blog is a book! Well, a self published book, using Blog2Print, and paying a hefty amount. I easily downloaded my posts, by date, and created a book online. They shipped quickly and I'm thrilled with the tangible record of my 2012 blog posts. I've got a book for 2011, too, and considering doing a 2010 edition. 
Why? Because it's a great record of what I've done. Because I work really hard on this blog, and I'm proud of it. And, this way I can show others my blog and encourage them to sign up to receive it in their email box, which I'm sure you're doing, right? (Just go to my blog and enter your email in the column on the right side, and you'll never miss a post.)

  2. I plan to do the same thing for my blog, Needlepoint Study Hall. Like you said, it is a great way to see all of your efforts. Being in print does give further validation. Congratulations and thanks for all of your wonderful inspirations. Robin King/Memphis, TN

    I want to do this with my Journey Juju (now defunct) blog. I started but the pictures needed more work than I had time. But your post inspires me to look at this project again!

    Thanks for sharing your pages and resources with us.

  19. I love my Blog2Print books, though I have always gotten the soft covers. I get one for every year I have been blogging. It seems like a nice visual diary of what has been going on, doesn't it?
    Yours looks very snazzy in its red cover! I may need to rethink the cover of mine next time.....!

  20. I did this for myself with my blog what a wonderful choice it gave me inner satisfaction and inspired me to grow as an artist. Having something in your hand from the virtual work you did was something good for your soul.

  21. That is awesome!!! Are you selling it?

  22. I think that is awesome!!! Are you selling it?
    If's too expensive, you can make a condensed version in a magazine format. www.magcloud.com 20 cents per page(i'ts been awhile since i've been on the site. don't know if the price is more)

    I think we would be very interested in purchasing it, and it some else to sell at your classes. Typing this is reminding me that I need to do it also.
