Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost to turn my blog into a book?

I charge $200 for the first 25 pages and $2 for each additional page. I will look through your blog and estimate the number of pages it will take me to lay out your book. Your final bill will not be more than $40 more than my original estimate. If I underestimated the number of pages by more than 20, I will absorb those costs. If I overestimated the cost, your final bill will be lower.

Please see read this post for a general idea of how long your blog book would be.

What kind of blogs can you convert to a book?
My software supports Blogger, Typepad, Wordpress, and LiveJournal.

If your blog is hosted somewhere else there's still a chance I could do the project for you. I can copy and paste the text and you can send me a CD of the photographs. 

 

How long will it take to get a book into my hands?

Turn around time will very greatly depending on my workload and the type of project. Blog books take more time do to the time consuming nature of designing custom layouts for each post.

I don't live in Minnesota. Can you still design a book for me?

Absolutely! I do most of my business through email but am available for phone consultations as well. 952*240*2483 Your books are sent directly to you from the printer.

This post about screen shots shows how you can view preview pages of your book through email attachments.

I just started blogging. Can you design my book as I blog?

You bet! I typically wait until you have at least a month of posts so I can get a feel for the layout style that matches your style of posts (photo heavy, text heavy, or a combination of photos & text)

I've been blogging for years. Do you give a discount for multiple years?

I don't give a discount for multiple years, but I DO give a 50% discount on additional copies of the same book.

Why would I order multiple copies of the same book?

Blog books make wonderful gifts for family. Blogs often take the place of a baby book so think about tucking a special copy away for when Jr. is older.

Hi Carrie,

do you need the username and password for the blog in order to 'slurp' it?
