My Surprise

So last week Wendy started tormenting me with "I have a surprise for you....but it's not here yet" Uh Huh. Nice. So all week I was waiting in suspense for the "big surprise." By Wednesday I stopped asking what it was. I figured it would get here when it got here.

It came. Today. It's the nicest thing ever. Wendy found a company online "Blurb" that makes Books out of blogs. Yup. That's right. I have my very own book- and it's the first three years of my blog. It's beautiful.

I haven't had a chance to do much else than browse through it but I am really looking forward to sitting down and reading it. I love my blog- probably more than a normal person should but really I think it has been a really great way to record keep, and how cool is it that I can look back to the first time Sam did the weave poles, or the first time Wicca saw sheep. It's even better in paper version....

Thanks Wendy!

How good. I've had one book printed my Blurb and I loved it, but I was wondering how the Blog to book would work out. Congrats on three years of blogging too!

Hi Corgi Girls,
It doesn't take that long to put together as the program pulls together your text and photos but all the pages are put into a "standard" layout and you need to change each one to suit your needs (i.e. 2 photos vs. 4 or lots of text vs. a little bit). So it isn't super quick but it isn't a huge task either.
