Need a Photo Book? Check Out Blurb!

“This post contains affiliate links and I received free product for this post”



Hey neighbors!!

I have to share this beautiful photo book that was created using Blurb!!  I was so pleased with the quality of the book.  Many of you know, that I love to take pictures.  I have shared a few on here.  Over the years I have ordered several different photo books and I actually think this one is just a step above what I have previously ordered.  Making a book through Blurb is so easy!! They make great gift ideas too!! I used my photography name for the book.



Creating a photo book on the Blurb website is as simple as following the steps that they guide you through.  First of course you must pick the size of book you are wanting, as well as the shape.  Next you will choose if you want a soft or hard cover.  You can even opt for a hardcover with a dust jacket.  Last of the choices here, is to choose the type of paper.  I personally chose a matte.  The books start at 20 pages, and you can add pages for a small fee per page additional.  I downloaded their BookWright app to create my book.



The program will show you the safe area to place your photos, so none get chopped off.  The first option is to title your book and add any additional information.  At this point, you can upload photos you want included in your book.  I added several, and in doing so added a few extra pages to my book.  You will have several layouts to choose from for each page.  Pay attention, because some a photo boxes, and others are text boxes.  You do not have to use all of them.  I did not want text on every page, so opted out on many of the text boxes.  The program let me know if my pictures were not going to look good enlarged, so I was able to choose other options.  When you are completely done placing your photos, and adding text where you want it, you will be asked to review your book. Take the time to do this, because I found a couple of mistakes I had made, and was able to go back and correct them.  When I was totally satisfied I uploaded my book and placed the order.



When you place your order, you have a couple decisions to make.  Not only did I choose my hardcover photo book, but I was given the option of receiving my book in ebook form.  I was pretty excited about that.  Once those decisions were made, I entered my information for purchasing, as well as choosing how I wanted it shipped.  I chose the standard shipping.  The ebook was immediately available.  Then I just had to wait for the book to arrive.



All I can say is totally impressed.  My photos look wonderful!!  The entire family took turns looking through the book.  The cover is beautiful and the pages are of a very good quality.  I would definitely recommend Blurb.

I have told my husband about Blurb, because he is presently working on a book, and they do regular books as well as ebooks.  When he is done, I have a feeling he will be checking out their site.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
