I'm so thrilled with these blog books. I started writing my first blog just over seven years ago now (seven years, really??). I had no idea how long I'd last, I just wanted to keep track of what I was doing in the garden. Very quickly, I broadened out and started waffling on about all manner of things. I was hooked.
I've changed blogs twice since then, but never stopped taking pictures and writing about everyday life, things I've made, places I've been. I've wandered off every now and again, but never for more than a couple of weeks at a time. I look back at what I've written quite often, and it makes me smile.
A couple of years ago, I saw pictures of a book someone had made using posts from their blog, and decided to do the same thing. The first year took a long time, and I made several mistakes. For the second year, I used Blurb software, which was a LOT quicker, and looked a lot more professional.
I've now printed off all of my original blog, and I'm not sure what to do next. I switched to a Wordpress blog for my fourth year, and Wordpress isn't supported by Blurb in the same way, meaning I won't be able to use the same software.
So far I've been making one of these a year. Which means I'm five years behind myself, and never going to catch up.
Hmm, might try and do a couple of extra books this year...
