Did you know...

That you can turn your blog into a book?? So - there is a site that will let you either ARCHIVE your blog into your computer and if you want you can PAY to have it PUBLISHED. HELLO! I am so excited! This is where I put everything! Don't you think it would be a great gift to give to your kids when they get bigger? I love looking at old things my mom wrote about me! Anyway - check it out!!

WOW! supper neat. I am wondering if you can archive your blog by putting it on a DVD. I would prefer that. The book idea is truly wonderful too. I think it would be fun to have one book per year to represent your family history for that past year. Let me know what you know about the DVD idea. Are you going to do the book thing?

Oh, that is so cool. I totally need to look into that. This is a great idea for family history and posterity.

I did know about that, but I've heard it's really hard and time consuming. Let me know how it works for you.

One other thing I forgot to say. Because blogger uploads your photos at a low resolution, when you print them in the book, they won't be very clear or nice. So if you do it, don't make the photos too big or they will be grainy.

Thanks for sharing this awesome tidbit of information! I'm so excited too. A while back I was printing out my blog posts and pasting them into my journal, but then I got sick of using up all the color ink... this sounds like a much better solution! :)

I've been working on doing this for Isaac's blog ever since you told me about it last week.

FYI--You can replace the photos (and text if you don't like what you wrote) with the full-resolution ones when you are making the book so it looks better.

I'm so excited about this. I think doing one every couple of years or so of our family blog is infinitely easier than a scrapbook (even though I love digital scrapbooking!) Thank you so much for this tip!
