I think I should contact Blurb and see if they want to start paying me for advertising for them because I will definitely be telling anyone and everyone about how much I LOVE them :-)!
I kept this book to 160 pages to avoid going up to the next price bracket and with the image wrap cover (picture printed right on the book instead of having a dust jacket) plus shipping it was about $60. It doesn't sound like a great deal until you consider that I was paying well over $100 for prints of our photos each year and then buying nice photo albums to keep them in. This book is nice and slim (I have 3 FULL photo albums from 2007) and I love that the stories that go along with the pictures are right there with them! I will definitely be "blurbing" every year of our lives from now on...and probably any major occasion too. I'm almost done with my Oregon trip book and then all my old roomies can just look it up on blurb.com and order their own copy if they so desire. The site is super user friendly! You can transfer your blog right to the book format and then rearrange as you wish, add more pictures from your computer, play around with your layouts, etc.
Fun, FUN, FUN!
Here are a few pictures of my pages that show some of different layouts you can choose from (and you can view a preview of my book here). Of course, I will happily show off the book to anyone that lives near me too - I may carry it with me everywhere :-)!
