Printing and Binding Your Blog for Posterity
Some bloggers are beginning to save their words on paper after all–collected between hard covers in a bound volume to pass along to their children.
A service, Blog2Print, from New York custom-book maker SharedBook, prints blogs into books and says that demand has been been growing 50 percent every month, although from a small base.
“When we launched, people would say, ‘Who would want to print their blog?’” said Caroline Vanderlip, chief executive of SharedBook. But while demand was slow when the service was first introduced, she said after Google (GOOG) featured Blog2Print in a communication called “Blogger Buzz,” some 5,000 people clicked the link in 24 hours. It also works with other blog services such as TypePad and WordPress.
“It’s the modern equivalent of writing a journal in a black, bound book,” she said.
