From Blog to Book

Someday I’d like to put our blog posts into printed form. A blog book, if you will. I’m a fan of hardcopies.

Granted, this blog isn’t a masterpiece. There are many poorly written posts, bad pictures, and probably hundreds of spelling errors.

But it’s been around since early May 2005 and after 2,665 posts, and 7,000+ photos, it’s a fairly complete snapshot of this period of our lives.

One of our first posts was searching for the perfect wedding dress with my mom (we didn’t find it), later, the arrival of our lovely Beast, our wedding, the move from Santa Ana to Seattle, buying a house, building a monster chicken coop, traveling to Africa, and having a baby. You know, Life.

I suppose I could begin creating the books now and simply add additional volumes at the conclusion of each year.

A friend of mine recommended a company called Blurb and I’m going to use that to create Benjamin’s baby book. I see they also have a blog conversion program. Anyone out there ever tried it?
