Have you ever considered making your blog into a book? I do! I make one every year, in fact. I love having an in-print record of all my posts and I like the security of knowing I have them if the Internet decides to freak out and delete my blog or something.
My blog books are also useful as historical records. I use these a lot to look up when stuff happened. If Jordan asks me, "When did we go to the lake house last year?" No worries! I'll just look it up in my blog book.
I use Blog2Print and haven't had any complaints. Their website is super easy to navigate. You really can't mess it up. I know there are other blog printing services out there, but like I said, I've been using Blog2Print for about 5 years now and don't have any complaints with how much books have turned out, so I'll just keep using them!
If you get a soft cover book in black & white and use one of their gajillion 15% off coupons, it will cost you around $30 for 1 book with a year's worth of posts in it. The total cost, of course, depends on how many posts you include in the book, so that price can definitely go up or down. They do offer the option of color photos and a hardcover front and back, but that is much more expensive so I don't go that route.
You have the option of including a table of contents, which will give a title and page number for each post. That way, you can find things easily. You also get the option to choose which posts to include in your book! I typically do not include things like my Blog Talk posts, sponsored posts, or other things that I wouldn't care to keep or read about later.
When you input your website address into the site, you can choose a range of dates, so you can make a book of just posts from a certain year or period of time!
There are a few options for pictures: you can pick the size (I usually go with medium, pictured above), and you can have them included in the post in the order they appear (pictured below) or clumped together at the bottom of the post to save space. For the first few books I chose the second option, but I realized I much prefer putting pictures in order, even if it does take up more space and cost a little extra. There are a ton of other customization options available too if you just click around.
As you can see below, some of my books are really small and some are larger. I started including an entire year's worth of posts, which is what the bigger ones are. But like I said, if you want to do 6 months or something, you book will be much smaller (and cheaper!).
