Some of you may know that there are companies that can turn your blog into a book. I back up my blog (just in case something catastrophic happens), but now that I have three years of posts I decided it would be nice to start getting hard-covered bound books created. Sometimes, low-tech has its place in technology too!
I need to give a shout out to Blurb. I published the first 2/3’s of my blog into a book, and they did a bang-up job creating it for me. Their software is easy, prices reasonable, and just a great quality product. (NO, they are not paying me to say this). Hubby saw Volume I of BagMomma (all 400 pages), and even he was impressed!
So there you go, I don’t give a ton of product recommendations, but this is one I had to tell you about.
Secondly, Bean hit me up for a meme, and this one is close to my heart. I saw the story relating to this on one of the world news programs, and it intrigued me.
This originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith & Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. It’s a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were, “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.”
So I slept on it, and here’s what I came up with:
“Lucky in Life, Despite Past History”
What’s your 6 word memoir?
I won’t tag a bunch of people (because I just did on another meme), but DD… I want to hear yours!
