Okay, so my kids will tell you..I am blog obsessed. I will admit it right from the start. For years I "stalked" blogs. Never leaving comments, never having my own blog. I feel like that was a time that I was getting my "blogging education". Then last September, after moving into a new house, I felt it was my time to take the plunge, into full blogging. I have my own blog..I comment on blogs. I love blogging. I feel so much support and friendship. I don't apologize to my kids for it. I'm a stay at home Mom and they have my full attention all the time so if I spend a little time on the computer, it is not taking away from them. My husband thinks its great. I hate to cook but when I find recipes posted by a fellow blogger I try them. My husband loves that. My oldest daughter has her own blog and it has been one more thing for her and I to have in common.
So being as blog obsessed as I am I really wanted to print my blog into a book. My parents had given me money for Christmas so it seemed the perfect gift for me. I am really happy I did. The pictures are all small, which I wish you could get printed more true to blog size..but you can still read and see everything I blogged about the last few months of 2011. The other thing I was not pleased with was the pictures are dark. When looking back at my blog I noticed a lot of my pictures are dark and so that is something for me to work on this year. When I called the company Blog2print they were so nice. They said because they print on paper and not photo paper the pictures tend to be dark. They said they couldn't reprint the book but they could refund me 20%. I was pleased with that and from now on will work with using lighter photos.
It is a great coffee table book. I like having it to show friends that aren't in the blogging world and maybe getting them interested in my blog.
Blog2print gave me the 20% money back on my paypal account. Now I don't use my paypal account that often so I don't know if you can take money out of it to buy groceries or what. I am going to pretend you can't. (LOL) To me paypal accounts are for buying things on E-bay or Etsy. So I felt like God was saying to me.."Go ahead and buy that peat pot rose you've been wanting". I have had this item saved on my bookmarks for months from this Etsy seller, who I love abbyspaperiegarden .
So I ended up getting this little beauty that I have wanted all these months..
The rose is made out of tissue, tulle, and lace..I love it. It has my name written all over it (actually it doesn't really..it says "Serenity" --even better) Janae liked it online but said she thought it was even more lovely in real life. I couldn't be more pleased it got to come live with me! So it is kind of like a bonus gift I got with the Christmas money from my parents.
So if you have any questions about getting a blog book feel free to ask. I might be able to answer your questions.:)
Have a great week! Happy Blogging!
