Steve Garfield Makes a Book for His Mom

How To: Make a Blog Book with Blurb

Steve Garfield made a hardcover book of his mother's blog, 'My Mom's Blog' using Blurb.com. The book came out great and his mom loved it.

He had two problems. The first is that you can't do a global search and replace on the text from within the Blurb booksmart software. The second problem is that once you edit your book with the blurb booksmart software, you can't save it as a clean PDF without the blurb branding.

Two books seen in the video:

The New Rules of Marketing and PR by David Meerman Scott.

Be the Media compiled by David Mathison.

Hi Tim,

Good seeing you at the New Media Expo. I enjoyed your talk. Next time we are in the same place at the same time, we need to make sure we spend more time together.

Nice jacket!

This video has story and emotion... :-)

Thanks for sharing it.

I think this video also has spectacle. Those books look really cool. They remind me of when I saw the first iPhoto photo books.

And yes we do need to spend more time together and you need to get a flashy jacket.
