Although this is not a solution for the loss Margel was discussing, it made me think of the times I've read about people accidentally deleting their entire blog. That was always one of my worries -- because if anybody can do this, I can. I commented on Margel's blog that I have found a partial solution. We all get annoying pop-up ads and I had seen one repeatedly for Blog2Print. I decided to check out the site, because I have a cousin who has repeatedly asked me if I could print out my blog -- something I've had no desire to do.
Another one of my favorite bloggers, Nancy of My Ancestors and Me read my comment and suggested I do a post on this topic. I steer away from advertising and try to limit my posts to my family history, but I'm following up on Nancy's suggestion -- because I feel very strongly about preserving my work.
Another option, and I'd pay attention to this one, is that you can have the pages printed exactly as you set them up, or you can let the software rearrange your pictures to save space. You can preview it both ways. I chose the option to print it the way I set it up. Here is a sample page:
It will give you the price, and like all of these sites, you can wait because they are bound to have a sale soon. I was impatient and ordered this one right away. From the day I submitted the book to the day I received it was FOUR days -- despite their claim that I'd have it in a couple of weeks. I chose standard shipping.
So thank you, Nancy, for the suggestion. Should any of you have other ideas on how to preserve your blog so you can sleep better, let me know. If you try out this option, I'd love to know if it worked for you.
