Your Blog in Print!

by Karen Rani

A while back, I asked my readers what they would recommend I use to print my blog. It is getting quite long and I’m concerned I could, in fact, lose it all.

 

Krista at The Silent K, offered this link to Two Peas in a Bucket. I might consider this option since the outcome looks more creative then others I’ve seen. Thanks Krista!

I also found Blog Printing, from QOOP, Inc., takes your blog from Movable Type, WordPress, or Typepad and offers the options of black and white, or colour printing, in three different sizes. Printing from Blogger is unavailable at this time. To give you an idea of price:

Black and white books cost $7.50 for the first 28 pages, plus 4 cents per page for additional pages. Color books cost $12.00 for the first 28 pages, plus 30 cents per page for additional pages. If you set up an account to resell your blog, you can specify either a percentage or a flat royalty. Any royalties are added to the base cost of the book.

I’m not personally concerned with royalities, but some bloggers might be able to sell their printed blog if it contains valuable information.

Other options include Lulu.com, Print My Blog.com and Blurb. It’s all the name of preservation.

Contributing Editor Karen Rani also blogs at Troll Baby and owns Troll Baby Graphics.

    Take a look at Blog2Print as well. You can add the Blog2Print widget to your site and then anyone can print your blog and return a royalty to you. Or you can print your own blog. What’s unique about Blog2Print is that you can then edit the book further before it is printed. Add more photos. Remove some of the blog’s comments. Add your own.

    Blog2print is a beta program and it is more expensive.
