Blurb {$50 Giveaway}

Blurb is a creative publishing platform that allows anyone to create, share and sell a professional quality book. Make a portfolio of your client work, an archive of your blog, a cook book of your favorite recipes, a photo book of your family pictures or a quick book of your instagram photos – the possibilities are limitless. It’s easy and quick to do – with a variety of software options you could complete your dream book in next to no time.

Once you’ve made your book you can share it with others on your Facebook/Twitter or website & blog- you can even sell it for profit.

I created a Blurb book a few weeks ago using my Facebook account.  I included all the photos I had uploaded the past couple years over Facebook.  This is such a neat feature because it includes all the comments from friends and family and I just loved reconnecting with those memories and photos!

Here is the cover of my Blurb album:

 You can title it whatever you want :-)
Here is an example of what the inside looks like.  It includes photos, comments, and commentary on the pictures.

I loved all the memories the Blurb book brought back.  While flipping through it I got to read all the things friends and family have said over the past few years. 
I know this book will be something we can pass onto Connor and his family someday. 

Awe..first airplane ride :-)
Blurb books are so awesome!  Last year Terence surprised me with a Blurb book.  He created a book that included all the posts from my first year of blogging.  It meant so much to me that he put that together for me!   I love the fact that you can turn what you post on your blog & on Facebook into writing.  I know lots of Grandma's and Grandpa's who would love to receive a book of memories for Christmas this year.
