Turning my Blog into a book

Over the next week I will be working on turning my 2009 blog into a 12x12 book through a company called blurb .  So far, I completed 64 pages and I have approximately 150 more to go. This will be the test to see how good it comes out because I want to turn my Family Heritage Cook Book into a book. I chose blurb because they were the only company that offered the 12 x 12 size and allowing me to incorporate my own personal touches.

blurb has a free software program called blurb BookSmart that I down loaded onto my hard drive so I could work on my book. It has a tool that allows me to import my blog into the software. So fare I am impressed with what I could do with the pages. I am a scrapbooked and for me it is all about decorating the pages. blurb allows me to down load digital embellishments on to my pages as well as choosing my own personal digital paper for the backgrounds. They provide many different types of embellishments with their program. They have 85 backgrounds to choose from. They provide eight different picture boarders. In addition, they have about 75 different ornaments to choose from.  I should have the book completed and printed by mid next month.  I will let you know how it looks then.
