One year later

It's hard to believe, but I've been blogging for a year already! I signed up for blogger on July 31, 2009, and I made my first official post on August 3. I actually kept my blog to myself for the first month because I couldn't believe I was actually doing it! I slowly started letting people know about it, and things just went from there.

It's now one year later, and I've made about 160 posts. I've written about a wide variety of things, some more serious than others, so that I can let people know who I am and how I've gotten to be where I am in my life. Sometimes I worry that people might think I sound really dumb, but I do my best to write well. I've enjoyed blogging much more than I ever thought I would, and that just makes me wonder what sorts of other things I'll do in the future that I never anticipated either liking or doing.

I've been copying and pasting each post to a Word document all year, and now I'm going to upload the document to the FedEx store so that they can print it out (pictures and all), bind it and send it to me. It's going to be pretty expensive, but any expense will be worth it to me so that I can have a hardcover copy of all my posts through the past year. This is just another way to help me document my life, which is something that I'm very passionate about.

There is a web site called Blog2Print that will also send you a book of the posts and pictures of your blog. I'm not sure how much Fedex costs, but this might be something you want to check out to see if it is less expensive. Love reading your blog!

Heather, This is an excellent idea to get your blog in a book form. I did that with my first 4 months of my blog and my kids love it! It is my goal to do the rest of my posts in 6 month increments (since during Tim's treatment there were MANY posts!)someday when I have some extra $$$. :) Keep blogging! What you have to share is wonderful, insightful and valuable to so many!

Hi Heather,

Here is a website that will make your book much cheaper than the method you mentioned...
