For those of you who are bloggers, let me share a little secret with you. Last year, I discovered Blurb. This is a company, like "My Publisher," that makes personalized books with your photos. To tell you the truth it is the whole reason why I began blogging in the first place. I couldn't do the "scrapbook" thing. Too time consuming. I needed something where I could just type something small up when I had the chance and maybe add a pic or two. I kept looking at Publisher and I never found a way to really journal in it. It seemed more about pictures. I looked at Snapfish and others as well, until I stumbled upon Blurb.

The best part about it is that you can give them your Blogger page and download your entire blog into a book. It's fabulous. I made my first one at the end of last year. And right now I am working on 3 books--my own, a recipe book and a special surprise. (I'll tell you about that one later.)

You can also make your book public or private. If you are the entrepreneurial type, you can even promote and make a profit from the sales of your books. If you are just into looking at others books or need ideas, you can browse their bookstore. It's really amazing to see others creativity.

To top it all off, they are cheap! Way cheap compared to other companies. And, the software is free. So, get creative and give your children, grand-children, great-grand children something they can physically get their hands on for years to come. Who knows what the Internet will look like in 5 years, much less 50-100!
