Last week, I wrote a post about turning my personal blog, Chattie Hattie, into a book – and this week it arrived in the mail. I was SO excited. The book is adorable, the print quality is great, and I really like the size. I chose to have the picture printed directly on the cover, which I liked. As I mentioned in my first post, it was so simple to import my blog posts and create this book. This will be one of a series!! It’s so much easier to post a few times a week and create a book than sift through a million photos to create the perfect photo book at the end of the year. Every year, I intend to make one large photo book and get so overwhelmed I never actually make the book. This will keep it much more simple!
A few things I will do next time: The captions don’t import with the photo, so the captions are within the text of the post. Not a big deal… but I will proof better the next time! This has to do with proofing, too: some of my blog posts should have been tweaked for the book version, and I should have read it more thoroughly before clicking “order.” For example, I have “click here for a video” – minor things that I will fix for the next book.
