Want to Make a Book of Your Blog?

My creation

Happy Mosaic Monday to all of the participant's in Mary's Little Red House Mosaic Monday!

I often think about the time and effort I put into my blog. This mosaic of a recent trip to Manhattan to see my college son is just one example.

I think about how I'd love my children to have a nice copy of what I was thinking and feeling about in this snapshot in time. Will  my thoughts one day be lost to cyberspace? Wouldn't it be great if I could publish my writings?

To the rescue The Cutest Blog on the Block! This website offers a way to publish your blog to your very specifications! You can design a book of your blog with your own cover design, chose just the posts you want for posterity, and it will even allow you to publish comments that were so dear to you from your fellow bloggers. In other words, you customize every detail!

I will definetely be working on this, as a gift to myself and my family. I wanted to pass the word along to you, dear bloggers! Enjoy designing! :0)

Hi Tara. How have you been? I'll have to read through your posts to see what you've been up to. I think we all have a petrified food story to tell. I can remember finding a hidden hard boiled Easter egg that I months later. Yuk.

I've wondered about this very thing myself. Will be checking out that link. Thanks for sharing your pictures and idea!

Mary said...

Oh Tara, I'm so glad to see you here! That sounds like a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing at MM. :)

Oh, and isn't it so much fun to visit your children in the city? I love seeing how my son has grown up... :)

Hi Tara, thanks for the link, I have saved it. I have always thought about that idea!

The upper left building, isn't that the flat iron building? I used to work there a long time ago, and i have not been back for a visit!

Thanks for sharing!

Your Mosaic is lovely. I'm glad you keep your camera ready!

Hi Tara,
Love the mosaic! I didn't know they did that, I know that the Book Smart people turn your blog into a book over at Blurb. I used them to create two books. I will go and check that out, thanks.

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful Fall day.

Donna said...

Hugs to you,

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I will have to think about this. We put so much work into this!

Lovely blog and I love the design you picked. I wonder to what will happen to it all in 10 yrs and beyond. Could it ever disappear??? Yicks!
I've thought of doing a background but they seem to leave no room for larger pics!

Hi Tara

Another blogger had her blog transformed into a book by another service and it came out so beautiful! It's a nice idea. I will have to look at your source and see if it is affordable --I have a lot of photos in my blog

Happy Mosaic Monday!

Hugs, Pat

Beautiful mosaic of Manhatten sights and what a wonderful suggestion on the blog book. I have looked into other sites and am considering doing one for each calendar year but this sight sounds like I can customize it the most.


Joy said...

What a clever idea!

Kathleen said...

Well, you don't have to travel far to see your son..that's a good thing!
Have a good week, Tara!

M.Kate said...
