A blog of a book of a blog

Have you seen these? We decided to have our blog printed into a book periodically. Our first one just arrived. I'm not perfectly consistant about journaling... or scrapbooking... or printing photos for an album, so this seems like a good way to have something tangible. You know... in case the internet ever explodes.
We used www.blog2print.com and were pretty happy with the results. Not too expensive and it arrived quickly. Plus we didn't really have to do much. You just type in your blog web address, tell them the date range to include, and they do the rest. Then you can preview the book and delete posts, add comments from blog, etc. I do wish there was a way to do page-by-page editting for fixing a few little things, but I couldn't find a company that uploads for you and allows you to make design changes to individual pages.

I need to do this. I've been wanting to. Break it up into years, I think. I have a lot of posts. It will be expensive, I think.

Yay for blog books! Looks like yours turned out great! I'm actually working on ours right now, and I went through blurb.com. It sounds similar, but you can do some editing. I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but you could check it out. Yay!

hey jamie - your blog book looks great. i've turned a few of our blogs into books as well. i used blurb. that software imported the blog and then i could edit every page. i really like that since some of the pictures we upload aren't very high quality.
