Actually, I have known this for quite some time now, but have been too
And when I started doing research on how exactly to do this, I ran into some problems. The two sites I had heard about, lulu.com and blurb.com, are not compatible with Blogger.
(My friend's hubby got her blog printed into a book for Christmas. He used lulu, and had to manually cut and paste each of her entries into a Word doc, and then transfer all of the corresponding pictures as well. Now THAT's true love.)
Enter the company Blog2Print. They're Blogger (and Typepad! and Wordpress!) compatible! Turning your blog into a hardcover or softcover book simply takes a few easy steps.
All you have to do is enter the time-frame, whether it's your entire blog or a chosen time frame (I'm printing mine out by years) (Hint: make sure that if you're including posts within a certain date range that you pick the dates using the calendar provided. When I manually typed in my date range, I got an error message saying there were too many entries or photos.); choose a cover (you can also download a photo) and type up introductory text (if you so choose). THAT'S IT. You're done. Easy peasy.
