I never knew what Sleeping Is For Losers would become. When I started writing, I did it because I was a new mom who knew nothing and hoped there would be some people out there on the interweb that could relate to my daily struggles. And some people did (and shockingly, they weren't my mom...seriously!).
As this blog has grown and given me amazing opportunities, I've never stopped remembering why I started it and what it may one day mean to my son. I have always hoped that Z could read what I wrote about him and realize how he changed my life in so many amazing ways.
I rarely get around to printing photos- especially now that I take so many quick snapshots with my Blackberry- and I've been AWFUL at keeping up with a baby book for Z. But I did blog about his life and now I have something that will be an amazing and treasured keepsake for Z and myself for years to come.
My friends at Blurb.com gave me the opportunity to transform my blog into a book.
(note: putting on makeup and brushing hair before getting your picture taken would have been a smart thing to do...)
A real book that chronicles the ups and downs of mothering Z...as I see it. A book that I can give to him when he becomes a father one day (gulp) because, let's face it, he'll only really appreciate my sleepless nights when he's awake too.
And it was easy, people. So easy to do. With a couple clicks, Blurb had slurped my blog up and formatted it into a beautiful book- all I had to do was edit (I tried not to do toooooo much). In a few weeks I had my blog, my blood-sweat-tears-words, printed for me to read and relive.
In addition to slurping up your blog, Blurb allows you to create beautiful picture books- perfect for weddings, showers, replacements for that baby book you swore you would create and never did...ahem..., or just treasured keepsakes for you and your loved ones.
I have used other sites like Blurb before but never have I been so pleased with the ease of use, quality of product, and customer support I received. I cannot wait to go back and make more amazing memories with all that Blurb has to offer. Who knows what could come out of it?
