Last week a friend told me about a service that coverts blogs into books.
Using this service you upload your blog and can chose from a number of different formats, with everything from a scrapbook style to more of a traditional book. With my blog being more word-heavy and being 4 years old I naturally chose the latter.
IT IS AWESOME! 2 volumes, 751 pages with black and white photos (I also got a color pdf copy with links included).
Even though it is just for me it feels so satisfying to hold volumes in my hands that I wrote. That have my thoughts and ideas inside. It really does make me feel like an author. It is exciting!
I remember a writer told me once to bind your first book whether it is published or not, and I can see why. Its extremely satisfying to see your hard work in paper form, not just electronic.
Its just neat to see the proof of my life over the last 4 years! It makes me want to keep writing.
