Why Blog?

I have a personal journal of sacred experiences so why would I need a family record generated via the internet?
1. I am awful at scrapbooking.
2. I live far away from friends and family and this is more organized than a massive email.
3. It isn't until I write about our experiences that I recognize the presence of the Spirit in every endeavor and the many blessings we enjoy.

I would hate to lose these thoughts so I have started printing our blog annually. I am sure there are plenty of ways to do this but we went through lulu.com. Just open an account. Copy and paste you blog into Word. Upload the document into a project and design the cover. Here is an example from 2007.

I was wondering how these looked when they are printed. My one year blog mark is coming up and I think that I will have mine printed too.

Thanks for the website! I knew there were ways to print blogs and I've been wanting to do that. This is the closest I come to a journal so I really want to preserve it. I'm glad to see what it looks like printed. Thanks!
