I'm Published - snort!


Look at it! Three-hundred and thirty-six pages.....Choosing Joy 2006 - Jan-June..... This one arrived damaged and when you're paying this much you don't want crunched corners. I'm waiting to hear what they will do about it. I'm hoping for either a new book or credit towards the next one. I've finished all of 2006 - two more books on their way as it wouldn't fit it in one more. 

We decided to print the rest of the years on a quarterly basis. I'll use the same color for all the books in a year....and we choose our favorite photos from the months for the front, back and dedication page.  I WILL take the time to assign each of the posts a title (this wasn't an automatic feature when I began blogging)....but over all....we're thrilled. I will work on a more polished demeanor, delete most of the book blurbs....but really...we're happy. I told Michael it was almost as good as a scrapbook and he insists he likes this much better.

I love this. I love that Mike encouraged you to get this printed (in fact, I know he's been encouraging about your blogging for so long). I love that I began blogging only because of SHS. Once again you've blessed me, my friend, because I'll be printing mine out at some point down the road after watching you take that big step first. Thanks for sharing!

LOVE the blog/ book idea. I've kept a blog bc I want to have a record (and memory) of what has happened. It is a great idea to print them! (What's the company, again?!) It would actually be a great thing for all missionaries to do, don't you think?!

Tammy - I DO think it would be a great idea for missionaries....would be cool to share with folks back home as you travel too.

We use Blog2print - Shared books. I'll send you a link.
