Alaska Blurb book video review

I know you know. …. But I love Blurb. Not only have I ordered 4 books from them in the last 6 months, but I’m also an affiliate I love them so much. It occurs to me I’ve never done a REAL review of a Blurb book, so I recorded this video for you all!

Book Printing: Blurb vs Apple vs Photobox

Blurb gives you quite a few methods by which you can build your book. From tools for the beginner {I would recommend downloading their Book Smart program} to the super technical Adobe InDesign option, Blurb has many many ways to create a book. You can even make a book with Blurb from within Lightroom 3 and Ligitroom 4 beta! Far out! |

Blurb Book Review and Giveaway!

"I love the internet as a source of recipes, but I am terrible at organising the ones that I find. Some end up bookmarked in my browser, I tag others in google reader, and the remainder are either copied and pasted into Word or printed out and end up in a huge pile of paper in a very disorganised folder. So when Sarah of Kiwi Mummy Blogs (ummm yes, it was THAT long ago!) offered me the chance to do a review of, I saw chance to compile all the best recipes in a customised Recipe book and jumped at the chance."

Review : BLURB books

A few months ago I got an e-mail from a friend who works for the printing company who handles some of Blurb’s printing needs. She told me there would be a Groupon deal for $60 worth of Blurb printing for only $20 coming up soon. I had been wanting to try both Groupon and Blurb for a while, so this was my chance.
