A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

How to Make a blog Book

I was going to write a post about our Easter, but decided to do one on how to make your blog into a book. I did this...without any help from anyone, a few years ago. It is so easy. At first I was leery of clicking on the selections, but I decided that I could just delete if I had any trouble.I answered the questions and made my selection...not thinking that I would be doing this again and again over the years.
I visited Blog2Print and the first thing is to select that you are on Blogger, Wordpress etc.Then you put in your blog address and click. From then on...it's pretty much done for you. You select the date that you want the book to start at and the date you want it to end. Most of the next questions are already answered for you. It starts to get fun now...you select the color and cover from so many pretty selections. You might pick a couple of pictures...just like you do when you are writing a post...the pictures are for your front cover and back.... and then a few more questions and finally, after just one page of things to select...you click print my book. They will tell you if you have too many pages for one book. You can shorten your book by changing the dates or select that you want another book made up. I had enough for three books once...so I got in touch with them by email and the problem I was having was resolved. My books are all about 350 pages. Then you wait for several minutes and the book is ready for you to examine You might find that you want to change something...and that is easy too. You can go through each page, as it will appear in your book.When everything is the way you want it...it is time to purchase...I can give you a ball park figure on what it costs...depending on your choices...my last two books cost a little over $200 for both.This cost hasn't really gone up much since I started printing them. After giving your charge card info and address...it is only a matter of days before you have your perfect book in your hands. It's so exciting to have one of these beautiful books in your possession. I chose the soft cover and each book is done in the same color, with the same pictures on front and back...so they look like a set. So, if you've been thinking about making a book out of your blog....give this a try...you can always delete it if you are not happy.....but I know you will be happy with one of your own.
Hope this helped....Balisha

Actually Lynn started this all. When I was hospitalized she made up a book of my poems...that I treasure today....and the rest is history. They are really easy to do and are a lasting keepsake.
Thanks Lynn...the book you made me is right next to me on my computer desk
