Many things on the internet can be time-wasters if you let them be. One thing that I have really liked though, has been Pinterest. I have actually done quite a few of the things I have found on there. One in particular that I recently did was this. I think many of you have actually pinned it as well.
I finally made us some blog books. I used to be an avid journal writer (I filled up 8 while growing up). As soon as Dennen and I got married I stopped writing in my journal. I have no idea why. Having a blog has made me feel less guilty about this. The program is free to download and is called blurb. It's an easy program to use and gives you options of many different layouts. I made 2 books in 2 days. They are compiled of the last 6 years of our lives. I got the smallest, most inexpensive books made. They are 7" x 7".
Here are some pictures of our blog books.
They are very nice quality. Word of advice. Make sure that whenever you do a blog post, you make your pictures the extra large option. Some of the pictures from our earliest blog posts had to be pretty small so the quality would look okay printed, because when we did the blog post the pictures were saved so small.
Overall, I am way happy with how they turned out! It also gives me more incentive to do better, more meaningful blog posts (always with pictures of course).
