I made a book!
No, not that book. After coming back from overseas, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to use Blurb, which I’ve wanted to try out for ages. You download their very easy-to-use software, you can start from scratch or use one of their great templates, if you have a blog you can ‘slurp’ your blog straight into the template – and that’s what I did. I also fiddled around adding my photos from Flickr and then ordered it! Easy.
If I was going to do it again, I would probably be a bit more careful with it. I didn’t alter any of the fonts and (shame!) didn’t do a close enough proofread so there are some glitches in the transfer from blog to book that I should have tidied up. But all in all, it’s a wonderful memento of my trip and so much more interesting than a photo album!
I think you can look at a preview of it if you click the link below…you could even order it if you were that way inclined (that isn’t a hint, by the way).
