2009 in Print

I received my blog book for 2009 in the mail a few days ago.

You all know how much I post, so it was REALLY long.  Like 278 pages kind of long.

Another little fun fact – it contains 1095 pictures.  Dude – I know – I may need to lay off the picture taking  a little bit.

Yeah, that’s not going to happen.  And we all know it.

All in all I am very happy with the book.  I think the print quality is actually better than what I got with my 2008 book.

What I love most though is that Blurb updated their software and it allows you to make the layout exactly like you want it.  It made for much more balanced and fun pages.

I even threw in a few pages with color backgrounds, just for fun.

Love all that green!

The only problem with the book is that I am my own editor and since receiving it, I have found several typos.  Oh, well, I know I’m not the best self editor in the world.  If you read my blog regularly then you know that too!  Despite the few flaws of my own creation, it contains a full and complete history of our family for the year 2009 and I love it!

My mom ordered one for her blog and I was looking at it last week. After seeing both your's and her's, I may have to get one of my own.

I am so glad I got a chance to look through your book yesterday - it is wonderful!
I need to post more often so that I can have a better record of our family!
