Printing out your blog

There are quite a lot of blog printing options out there but the books can range from $60.00 to $100's depending on on how many pages or years you have on your blog.  To print our blog - even with a 15% off discount (offered via an email)  it would still of coat over $400.  That was until our ever resourceful Dad found Blogbooker. This site,  originally set up as a resource for teachers lets you convert your ENTIRE blog into a PDF file which you can then save to YOUR computer or onto a USB stick which you can then take to kinko, office max or anywhere that does printing for you and have it printed out at a fraction of what the books off other sites cost. To use this option if free on this site. You might not get the fancy solid book cover but you can have it spiral bound for just a few dollars. It works with Blogger, Wordpress and Live Journal.  We had over 5 years of blogging and this program set it up as a pdf file and sorted it out by year as well.  We are off to Kinko on Monday to have out blog printed out and we will share the results later this week.  If you are thinking about having your blog printed - search around as there are quite a lot of different companies offering this now and remember to take into account the cost of postage in your overall price.

  3. That's pretty cool. Thanks for the tip. Since you have some beautiful photos on your blog, I'll be very interested to hear how you feel they came out when you get the final copy. It'd be very nice to 'page through' the memories some day...

  4. Thank you for this very informative post! I've thought about this before but figured it would be cost prohibitive, so I never really looked into it. You did all my work for me and I thank you!

  7. Yeah. You guys are wonderful to share this with us. We have been wondering how to do this too. WE finally figured we would have to save each post individually. It seemed like an endless job. This makes it 1000 times easier.
    Your wonderful to share

  11. For awhile I was pringing it out myself but it took forever on my slow printer and used a lot of ink and I think I stopped two years ago this July. So this is a very good idea. Let me know how it works!

  12. We tried to print and it kept saying a few pages wouldn't print. It turned into a very long project so we decided against it

  13. I just printed out 80 pages with no problem - it even gives you an index of all the post at the beginning. All the photos printed out in color and it is set out really nicely. If you have problems try downloading the file again. Sometimes these big files get corrupted while downloading especially if you have fluctuating internet speeds.
