My 2017 blog book arrived yesterday. When I first starting blogging in 2008 I didn't know you could make a book from your blog. I didn't post as much back then and when I found out you could put your blog in book form I actually put 2008 and 09 together to make my first book. This year's book is the smallest one I've done since then. I also forgot to check what kind of cover material I wanted and got a soft copy instead of a hard cover. Oh well, I'll probably just reorder another one and give this one to Mom. It's easier for her to read than going on the computer and she enjoys looking at all the photos too. There are times I've considered quitting, but when the book comes and I see all the events and family gatherings put in print I realize it's a journal of sorts. I'm no great author but someday I hope a family member will take the time to look at them and remember what we did together or read about what I did with my time in this life. Mundane? Probably. Repetitive? Yes, many times I've repeated a tribute to a family member and I always put a post in on the holidays and frankly those don't change much year to year...except we all age a bit! Important? It is to me and that's all that matters isn't it? I use Sharedbook.com to make my book. It's pretty easy and depending on the number of pages, not too expensive. Anyway, how can I put a price on a year in the life of us?
