blog book give-a-SHWAY!

ok so, it's the new year and you've decided you're going to blog more. because you have a big job to do. you're going to take better care of your memories. remember? ya, you are. we all agreed that you should. 
(some of you asked exactly what my book looked like, so here are some pics)
Photobucket

so to help you do this, blog2print is so graciously giving away a blog book! that's a 60 page hardcover or 90 page softcover blog book. if you've had your blog for a couple years, you'll need a bigger book...i hadn't printed mine for 2 years and i blog 2 or 3 times a week-- so my book was a hard cover, 200 pages and cost $84. but that's still super reasonable and really the cheapest i've seen out there.


Photobucket
love the index...all your blog titles with pages next to them...amazing.


so the voucher is worth $40... whether you're making a small book, or a large one, this is glorious.  good luck!


here's how you enter: ALL IN SEPARATE COMMENTS


1) stand on one foot and leave a comment whilst only typing with your left hand telling me why you need a blog book. it could even be, "because i'm so cheap i don't want to buy it....so just give me one."


2) become a follower and let me know. or if you're already a follower, tell me so, player.


3) blog the giveaway encouraging your bloggy friends to blog more this year...and let me know you did.


 there, you're done. i'll pick the name next monday. why so long a wait? i'm taking a vay-cay from blogging for a week. but i'll be back next week. lest you fret...

  3. I have used this company before as well. I am waiting to print the last 15 months of my blog until they have a sale -- or I win a voucher!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I already follow :)
    I'd love it because it would be great to have a collection of these gorgeous books!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I know I'll probably be the youngest (literally) fellow blogger to leave a comment, which may lead many to believe that I'm not as serious of a blogger as the rest.... However, I started my blog to help me prepare to one day write a book! I would really love to turn my current blog (My Life Inspired) into a little piece of my young life. A book about growing up & facing the challenges of being a teenage girl in high school. This blog book is the PERFECT way to do this! :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. And, yes-- I'm a faithful follower:)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I need to win because I've been wanting to make a blog book for years and am too cheap to do it. :) Really hoping I win...

    ReplyDelete
  8. And of course I'm a follower (of your blog).

    ReplyDelete
  9. I need one because I'm too cheap to buy one :)

  11. Last year I did the Project Life album and it was a lot of work to keep up with it, but very satisfying to see all of those memories at the end of the year. This year I'd really like to do a blog book because I love the idea of it just sucking up everything that I had to say, and making it into something pretty and awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I want one. I think that's reason enough.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I follow you. But not in a creepy way.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Uh, I need a blog book. And I'd rather not pay full price for it :o).

    ReplyDelete
  15. And I follow your blog, cause I'm cool like that!

    ReplyDelete
  16. i need a blog book because i have a blog. duh. you told me i had to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm cheap, end of story. But I feel like I know you...since my friends know you, I do too. :) I also need a good excuse to get my blog up and running a bit more, I'm terrible with it lately.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't need one. I just like being internet friends with you so I'm leaving a comment. If I win, draw again. Bye.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I need to win thi because I started a blog for memory preservation purposes over a year and a half ago. It's time to make a book!

    ReplyDelete
  20. that looks amazing. i'd love to try that. i need a blog book because i always intend to print out my posts but never do.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i would love to make my blog into a book. I've only recently started adding pictures, and I never get prints made so it'd be great to have some proof!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I need a blog book to combine my previous blog archives with the new.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am a fairly new follower, and I adore your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i want the blog book because i am at risk for deleting my whole blog. just ask emily...i had her on 911 speed dial one day because of it. but fo reals...i could totally delete all of my memories of my sweet 2 year old and i have i no where else. bad momma! so please, pretty please, pick me! and i am so a follower of yours. love your wit and spunk and truth speaking. :) now i will go suck up to you on my blog a little more...brownie points, yeh?

    ReplyDelete
  25. and i also speak really bad english, so you should feel sorry for me too. obviously...

    ReplyDelete
  26. The post "you have a big job to do" inspired me to get off my bootay and get my blog printed. :) It would just be so much better with $40 off. :)
    And....this is the first give away I have ever entered!

    ReplyDelete
  27. AND I did a post about your post.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think I follow.... You're in my google reader.
    Does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Why should i win? Because I'm a lazy blogger and winning would motivate me to blog so I'd actually have something to put in my free blog book. Booya.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm going right now to blog about this fab give-away on my very neglected blog that really no one reads (except for you) so don't expect much ad time on my lame-o blog (that I desperately need to put in a blog book...). But alas I shall head over there right now to give your blog some props.
    Love,
    Jenn

    ReplyDelete
  31. I need to win because someday my grandkids will be able to read it and say "grandma was kinda cool way back when"

    ReplyDelete
  32. of course I follow you - natch - I follow all the cool people

    ReplyDelete
  33. I already started making mine... all because of you! This website is the cheapest I've seen... and I'm all about cheap. I've got 4 years that need to be turned into books so I could certainly use the credit.

    ReplyDelete
  34. A follower? Of course I am!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I need this because it'll motivate me to really dig in deep into the blog world this year (and years to come)!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I need a blog book because I have been blogging regularly for three years, look at the prices to get it printed, and shnickeys! I panic at the price.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 1. Need it because of my New Year's Resolution - more FAMILY blogging for my blog books!

    2. Girl, you know I blog stalk you.

    3. I gave you a shout out because you inspired me and I've already had several moms get on the blogging bandwagon because of it! - http://www.ccmillerphotography.com/blog/?p=4147

    ReplyDelete
  38. I need the blog book because you inspired me to blog my memories about a year ago = presto! My blog!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I follow you because your cool duh! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Reasons you should pick me:
    1. I never heard of a blog book until I read it in your blog and it's such a cool idea and I need to make sure it's printed because I never remember to write in those baby books but no one can read my handwriting anyway and it would just be cool(that was like 3 ideas in one!)
    2. And... I have some awesome family pictures taken by Jami Nato on my blog that need to go in a book! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. And I'm a follower and going to blog about blog books on my blog right now!

    ReplyDelete
  46. i need one because i'm in dire need of paper memories. all my stuff is on the computer!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. I want a blog book like yours cause (forgive me Lord, gonna pull the Jesus card,) I started our blog to therapeutically
    make the transition into full time missions work. My blog has been a diary like photo journey of the 'from pampered Chef' life I used to lead to the 'Dude, where's my kitchen' life I now lead. I love it. Thanks for cionsidering me and JC, lol.

I was sooo deeply touched by your words in "you have a big job" I couldn't have said it better myself and I just want everyone I know to blog too. I too do it for the fun of it, but also to document the memories of our family life. Thank you so so much.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wow. 124 comments? Bummer. Jami, I don't ever enter giveaways (even when you and Emily do them!) cause I figure its a waste of my time cause I'm not gonna win. BUT, I WOULD like to win this one and hopefully I do because after talking to you I went to the site and put my whole blog book together...but I didn't want to pay for it. :-/ And its not even as big as yours!
