A couple of Christmases ago, my father-in-law gave me a wonderful surprise gift, my first blook. I am not a scrapbooker, so the last 4 years of blogging (over 1300 posts!) are essentially my only record of motherhood. It had long been on my list to save these posts somehow, but I never had the time.
Since that Christmas, he has started putting my blog together in hardback form 6 months at a time. We are now up to 5 yearbook sized volumes. If there were a fire and I could only take one physical possession, this would be it!
Several times a year I get e-mails wondering how he did it, so I thought it was time to put the information in one cohesive post. Mine were made using www.blog2print.com for the set up and www.lulu.com for the printing.
When I set out to do this on my own I tried using another prominent website, but found that my pictures were not going to transfer in good quality. I also consulted with a designer who wanted to charge me $2000 to take on the project. Needless to say, my father in law's gift was much more in line with my budget. :-)
I know there are other online sources and methods, (including people who will do it for you for a fee) so I wanted to open the comments up to those of you who have had experience in undertaking this project. Please post your tips/experiences below.
