I talked to George Morgan and Steve Danko in Burbank about publishing your blog into a book. Getting electrons down on paper is really the best way to archive something. Blogs are prime real estate for losing information to the digital dark age. As I have invested in this blog, with so much more that will be invested too, I want a way to hold on to it and make sure it is available in the future (I'm a control freak that way.) Both of these have software you download to take the information from your blog and create a .pdf. Take a look:
http://www.blurb.com/ Blurb's software BookSmart was easy to use and brought my blog right in. You wouldn't want to be really picky about the formatting though. You don't have alot of control here.
http://asprise.com/product/blogcollector/selfpublish.php I had trouble downloading this software with Vista and then it wasn't terribly intuitive. Would work in a pinch, but I liked BookSmart better
I would love a place where I could just go type in the address and have the book arrive in the mail (like our charting service.) Unfortunately it looks like there have been some blog book companies like that go out of business. (blogbinders.com) I haven't been able to find any easier solution. If you know of one--I would love to hear about it.
Now Kim knows what to get me every Christmas. A published account of my blog for the year.
