A little while ago a blogging friend did a post about a company that will turn your blog into a book; basically for personal use; at least that’s my understanding. Actually she chose to get her blogs sent to her in PDF so she could arrange them in the future herself.
Today, I phoned to get some information. I had thought I would just select some posts, as that was listed as an option, but when I first inquired it seemed that the only choice for a WordPress blog, was to include all, or from a certain date to another date. When I explained that I had almost 600 and didn’t really want them all, I was advised that only 400-445 pages could be in the book, but that perhaps if some were shorter it would be okay. I had to actually go through the process before I got the message that indeed there were too many to print.
But that was good, because then I got the chance to delete some from being included, and so I could select only the ones I wanted. NOTE: I just went to the site and found ‘Faqs’ at the bottom. I wish I had seen this earlier as it would have answered some of my questions. The gentleman that I spoke to, did really not seem to explain things well to me, and said he didn’t think I had an option to select the posts I wanted. So, have a look and you’ll find out some more information
Anyway, I ended up with about 250 pages which cost approximately $130 plus shipping (u.s. funds), in a hard cover with pictures and in colour. There are other options available such as soft cover and in black and white only.
I have not yet received the book, so cannot at this point recommend it, but I will let you know when it comes if anyone is interested. I had been printing off my posts myself, but I have fallen behind and thought this might be the answer to save myself a lot of printing and organizing.
Anyway, here is the link if you want to look into it. The pages by the way are 8 1/2 by 11, so it isn’t a small book as I thought it might be. ( I asked what the size of the pages were as it doesn’t state that, and the fellow on the phone told me????) There is a toll-free number also.
