Blog books

I've been thinking for a long time that it would be a good idea to have a backup record of this blog, and I've been investigating options to print it out.

 I settled on Blog2Print, and ordered the first four years, 2007 - 2010. 

There are options for the type of cover and the picture for the cover page.

There are also options for the layout of the pictures and text.  The quality of the print and the color of the photos are very good.

You can also select photos for the back covers.

I also used Blogger's utility to export all the posts from my blog to a backup on my computer, which could be used to restore my blog if it was lost for any reason.

Marcia -- I have been thinking about doing the same thing. Did the edit program allow you to (for instance) omit some posts, or omit some or all comments, or fix typos? Do the posts come up in chronological order or reverse, as on the blog? May I ask how much it cost you?

Kathy, You can sign in and pick all your options to see the pricing without ordering and to see what it will look like. You'll be offered a 15% discount when you first sign in. You can include/exclude comments, but I don't remember options to select posts or fix typos. I chose chronological order, and I chose to Not force the text with the pictures to save pages and $$. My cost per book was $60-70. It's been fun to browse through and see what was happening each year, and I plan to print 2011-2013.

I forgot to add that you can pick any time frame... I chose to do each year separately. And you can choose hard or soft covers.
