A blog book, featuring the first three months of 2011 from the blog "bug and the sweet banana" (www.bugandthesweetbanana.com).
When the notion to create books of my blog first came to mind, I set out to find someone to make the books for me. I backed out of the contract when the bookmaker that I had enlisted stated that he takes a one-layout-fits-all approach to books. So many of my blog posts are photo heavy or rely on photos to tell the story, so that one-layout-fits-all approach would have changed my writing entirely. Still determined to turn my posts into pages in a book, I decided to learn how to use the software. I floored myself completely: In addition to teaching myself how to use the software, I discovered a whole 'nother part of my mind that I had no idea I had the ability to use. Making books taps a different sort of creativity and persnicketiness that satisfies my need for precision. Time passes without my realizing it. I get a fire in my eye when I design a page just so. I fall asleep more easily at night, knowing that my stories are preserved, in ink and on paper.
