Blurb Review & Giveaway

Years ago, I did a Blurb book (my first foray into manscript writing).  That's it right there -> "a MOM book". (it's still on the Blurb store bookshelves if you want a copy or three).

I liked template choices for book layout, colours and set up.  And it was EASY!

With blurb you can write your own cookbook, write a novel, publish your portfolio, create custom educational books for your kids, and of course, tell the story of your wedding or vacation.

With Blurb, there are three ways to design your book http://www.blurb.com/make/:

1. PDF to Book gives professional users full creative reign over the bookmaking process, offering blank Adobe® InDesign® templates
2. Booksmart makes it very easy and lays out a template for you

3. Bookify lets you unleash your creativity from cover to cover

    I just did a Blurb Photo book, yet I love that there are so many options on this site. You can use it professionally too! Myself, I would love to make a cookbook - a collection of all my Mom's recipes!

    I would make a blog book even though I'm not a blogger to reflect on my daughter's live.

    Oh, I'd love to win this! Friends of mine have raved about Blurb's books. I want to make a book of the photographs I've taken of the kids' art over the year!
