WOW--Big News! While I was messing with this blog after the last post, something caught my eye--an ad on the right hand side of a page. I look and did a double take. It's some service that will print your blog in freaking book format! No kidding. It's called BlogsPrint. Well, as you can imagine, I dropped everything I was doing and hot-footed my way into their website and added a cover photos and a few words of introduction and printed the danged thing in PDF format. Then I opened an account, paid them $7.95 on the charge card and--BAM--as Emeril would say, I got a 90-page PDF book delivered to my inbox faster than Superman speeding over Manhattan! It is a 6 meg file so it's not to be taken lightly. What's the book about? Well, some of your loyal readers know I doted on a blog a year ago called "The Great Winter 2008-2009. It ran for about six months as I recall and had well over 100 posts. It was a VERY popular blog and had a LOT of steady repeat traffic. Since then, several friends has complimented the blog and asked if I would every continue to do that sort of thing again. It takes a lot of time and attention and thought so I haven't really equaled last year's performance. Meanwhile, if you know much about blogs, it's a real chore to attempt to print out your blog. Well, actually, it's not a chore, it's a downright MESS! I would have loved to print out that blog but would never attempt something so complicated and messy. Enter Blogs2Print. WOW, for a mere eight bucks and a fwe clicks, BAM--there it is--in chronological order no less. AMAZING!
OK--here's the deal--I uploaded the six meg file to a website and renamed it. Click here to get the 6 meg file. Today at work I will try to reduce the file size. I think I can do it without sacrificing readable quality.
This is the dawn of a new era!
Well, this whole deal threw me for a loop this morning. I am trying to get to work by 8 am but the book deal has made me run late. I even called Brad W. on the phone and babbled on like a maniac about it. Good thing I came back to update this post as I wouldn't have noticed I forgot to include the link above. Opps!
Well, I have to go to my Day Job. More later today.
