Blog to book
When my website’s host suffered a massive drive failure last week, I was destroyed — five whole years of writing gone. My mom told me, “It’s kind of like you were writing a book. And now it’s all gone.”
Thanks for pounding that point home, mom.
Anyway, I was fortunate enough to recover the majority of my entries through the caches of msn and yahoo and I’ve moved to blogspot. In addition to saving these files in about four locations, maybe I should consider publishing a book of my entries. Now you might be saying, “Stacey, don’t get ahead of yourself. You’re not that good.”
Well, with the assistance of the new Book-Smart software from Blurb, I don’t have to be. This tool automatically downloads and reformats your blog into a book that you and your friends can purchase through the Blurb online bookstore. Pricing is very reasonable — $30 for an 8×10 full-color hardcover with dust jacket of up to forty pages.
I know what everyone is getting for Christmas.
