I did it.
Two hundred pages.
Six hundred and twenty seven photos.
One big, beautiful book.
It was worth every darn penny ($128 + S&H) to finally get this done. It’s amazing. I added in bits, pieces and quotes from my blog over the last year. We’ve all looked at it a dozen times and we’ve only had it for 14 hours. My mom and dad both have one and I’m already looking forward to making another one next year, and every year from here on out. If I’m being honest, if you’re going to get a book as big as this one (13″ x 11″) you should probably have some pretty good photos, the point and shoot and phone photos are pretty obvious compared to the rest (the Blurb bookmaking software tells you when a photo isn’t big enough or high enough resolution to fit.) Not big into designing a whole book yourself? You can have Blurb design it for you. My very most favorite thing about Blurb? They let me use the photos I already have uploaded to Flickr, no sorting and uploading from my hard drive necessary.

This is not sponsored or endorsed by Blurb at all. I made the book on my own and paid for it with my own money, those links up there are affiliate links (which I did use when I bought my book, full disclosure) and I used the 15% off coupon just like you can. I mean, hopefully Blurb sees this and is all “YOU’RE AMAZING! BOOKS FOR EVERYONE!” but that isn’t really why I did this. You see those little girls up there looking at the book? That’s why I did this. You need to do it too, no sense in having all those wonderful pictures sitting on your hard drive or in the cloud where no one can touch them, look at them and enjoy them. Do it, do it, do it.
