Have you "slurped" lately?

I love the idea that there are all kinds of sites on the web that can turn your blog into a book. They "slurp" it (and "slurp" actually IS the technical term!) right off your site and do all the work for you. 
On more than one occasion I have lost more than a handful of posts at once - and I have absolutely no idea how it happens, but it makes me nervous.  I keep a back up archive on my shutterfly account (I just cut an paste) just in case anything should wrong with my blogger account.  It's a good thing.  I've actually heard of people who lost their entire blog and could do nothing to retrieve it. (I'm sure that doesn't happen often, can you imagine disappointing that would be?)

I thought it would be a great thing to do at the end of each year so we could have a hard copy, for reference and fun.  So I've been doing a little research on various companies and was wondering if anyone out there has published one before and might give me a little feedback.  Did you like the company? Would you use them again or would you choose a different route?  This curious mind wants to know!

Here are some of the companies I was looking at:


  1. I have no clue, and haven't done any research on this, but would love to do it, too! I can't wait to find out what you learn from all your hard work. : )

  2. Maria,
    I have been wondering the same thing! A friend of mine just did a post on how much she likes blurb books. I was thinking about trying one. Here is the link to her post:
    If you find out anything else, please post an update!

  3. Keep posting stuff like this i really like it.


It means a lot that you took the time to leave a message!
