Flowermouse Between Pages

Front cover of the book.
With just a few clicks my book is out. I am a published author. This really sounds much better than it is. It would be a nice dream. But this is just about me printing my blog into a book.

I have thought about it for long after I saw it on another blog. But when all photos suddenly disappeared one day on blogger - I decided it was time to order that book.

Back cover of the book.
The photos came back the same day - but it reminded me about life online. It can be over in just a click and everything is lost.

Writing a blog is sharing a little part of a life. And I wanted to be sure that it will be with me forever. Or whatever....

I ordered the book on blog2print. And I am very pleased with the quality of it. Colors, photos and text is very good. I included all comments.

They mean a lot to me - and my blog would really not be what it is without them.

The only thing I think is negative is that I chose to have a so called snapshot of the blog posts. But they have centered all the photos - which added a lot more sites to the book.

In addition I got a vague answer from them when I contacted them regarding that. On their site it do not say that they change the layout when you choose snapshot. Maybe that word has another meaning to the company than to the rest of the world?

Anyway, I am happy to have saved my blog in this book. I am planing on making a book every year.

And I thank you all for your visits, your comments and your support. You are the ones making my blog alive. And you brighten up my everyday life.
Inside the book.

  1. Jeg har også fått lagd bloggbøker - en for hvert år, og har stor glede av å bla i dem. Det minner meg på at jeg må se å få lagd en for 2011 også...
    Det eneste negative med dem, syns jeg, er at dager og datoer kommer på engelsk, men men...
    Ha en riktig god helg!

    1. Helt enig - jeg synes de burde tilpasse det bedre til internasjonale kunder. Blogger er jo ikke kun for ett land... Tror faktisk jeg så det hos deg - at du satte meg på ideen. Ha en fin helg du også!!! Her skinner endelig solen dog i partnerskap med iskald vind...

  3. That is so wonderful!! I have often looked at the link for 'making your blog into a book' but I'm thinking I would need to clean my blog up a bit and get more interesting first :) Wish I had done it with my old blog 'Living With Walls' before I shut it down but 'oh well'. :) Thanks for sparking the fire and stirring the coals in my mind :)

  5. What a great idea. Can you choose to leave some posts out? I would choose to cut a few of my disasters out!

    1. Thank you so much Jo!!! I do not know if you can do that. You have to check it out on the site. I think the so called disasters is a part of the process - we learn so much from it. Be proud!!!

  7. Ih,tillykke:-) Det må nu være noget særligt, en rigtig bog med noget man selv har skrevet,også selv om det bare er til sig selv. Det har jeg ikke oplevet siden jeg afleverede speciale, og det var mere sådan et tykt hæfte.
    Glædelig sommer -eller noget:-)

  9. Har sett flere gjøre det, og synes resultatet jevnt over har blitt veldig bra. Det er ikke alltid like lett å klippe og lime web-design over på papir og motsatt. Her synes jeg at de har funnet en layout som fungerer.

  11. Gratulerer med bok! Den ser lekker ut! Har laget en for 2009, men pc-en min vil ikke laste opp 2010, for mange innlegg tror jeg? Skal prøve på nytt med en annen pc etter ferien. Det er som du sier, plutselig er det borte.

    Uansett, fortsatt god sommer! :)

  13. Wow, very smart decision. I too would hate to find that my blog disappeared from cyberspace.

  14. Lekkert!

    Nå har jeg bestilt :) De fire første månedene av bloggingen min. Må dele opp!
    Og den skal min mamma få, for hun har ikke PC:)

    Takk for tipset, Lone! :)

    Du har ikke nevnt pris. Tror jeg kom opp i 6-700 kr for min første bok! Litt dyrt, men sikkert verdt det :)

    Skal til "hoppbakken" om en uke.... stilen skal vel vurderes ;)

  15. Tusen takk Marit!!! Ja, synes nok det var dyrt. Men om bloggen skulle forsvinne er det vel investerte kroner. Lykke til i hoppbakken - det blir 10 i stil. Helt sikkert!! God klem til deg!!
