Last month I chatted up how wonderful Blurb.com was for publishing books and memories. You can publish blog books, portfolios, recipe books, photo books and more. You can read the complete review here: Publish Your Life.
Today, I want to buzz about Blurb.com for a slightly different reason - summer. Once the weather gets warm, so many of you are going to be out with your kids with one thing on your agenda - FUN. Theme parks, the beach, water parks, visiting family and more. And the memories you have will be PRICELESS. Without a doubt, I suggest preserving those memories in a book you self-publish at Blurb.com.
The quality is UNBEATABLE. Books feature 4-color printing on 80# coated, matte standard, or 100# silk-finish premium paper. Plus, you can get soft cover, hard cover with dust jacket or, my personal favorite, hardcover image wrap. Trust me - get the image wrap cover.
And the options are limitless. Easily choose page layouts, fonts, colors and more to really personalize your books. I know I am in love with the book I created to remember 2008. And my husband wants me to make more for this year. Plus, he thinks we should order additional copies for family members as Christmas Gifts. And that is a super idea - for you too!
Just imagine - let's say you spent a few days or weeks with family this summer. Take lots of pictures, make notes on memorable moments and then upload and write everything when you get home. When the holiday starts rolling around - order those books as gifts. Without a doubt, grandma and grandpa will cherish those Summer memories for years to come!
From Grandpa going down the waterslide with his grandchild to grandma going on a rollercoaster with her grandkids - these are the memories you want to keep forever! So don't trust anyone else to preserve your memories. I know I only trust one company - Blurb.com!
And don't forget - if you write all of your summer memories on your blog, you can always create a Blog Book at Blurb.com! It works with many blogger platforms, automatically bringing in photos and stories from your blog and laying them in your book.
