Blurb Giveaway!!!

Here is a fabulous giveaway for your Tuesday from one my favorite fellow bloggers Natalie. How I have never heard of Blurb I will not understand but it allows you to make a book out of your blog or pretty much anything else you feel like! She is giving away 5 book credits so head on over to her page and sign up for this giveaway and follow her blog cause she is fabulous! Here is more information from her post about Blurb for those of you in the dark like me apparently...

There was a general outcry of despair when Blurb decided they would not be compatible with Blogger for a while. My cry was the loudest. However, if you haven't heard, Blurb is back to "Slurping" blogs with a vengeance. What is "slurping" you ask? Well, it is just about the coolest development for multitasking bloggers ever. You can actually upload your entire blog into Blurb to create a blog book. It is incredibly easy and the finished product is fantastic.There are a lot of self-publishing companies out there, and I've tried almost all of them. Seriously though, you haven't really seen anything until you have tried Blurb. Blurb is a creative book-publishing platform that lets anyone produce their own bookstore-quality book. Blurb’s BookSmart software is totally free to download and includes a huge (HUGE!) variety of professionally designed layouts. The photo quality is the best I have found and the prices are very competitive. (Like half what I have paid for similar books.)

You can do any type of book that you would like on Blurb; wedding album, cookbook, novel...you name it. My latest and greatest idea is to "slurp" my son's baby album. I am planning to start an entirely new blog just for family photos. When he hits a year, I slurp the blog and have his "Baby's First Year" book done in an hour. Scrapbook done and grandparents get loads of grandchildren photos on my blog. The best of both worlds. I will let you know when I start that new blog. Hopefully by the end of the month.
Blurb has graciously given 5 book credits of $29.95 to be awarded to you! That is 5 winners for this giveaway alone.
Contest Rules:1. Go to Blurb and check out their products. Check out the books in Blurb’s Bookstore at www.blurb.com/bookstore. Leave a comment on this post between now and Monday, May 18th, explaining what you would create if you win a free book from Blurb.2. For a extra entry, let me know in a separate comment that you are a subscriber or follower of Natalie's Sentiments.3. For a third entry, let me know in a separate comment that you have blogged or tweeted about this giveaway.
Five winners will be selected by random generator and announced on Tuesday, May 19th . Good luck!


  1. Love anything pink..especially leopard print!! We must be kindred spirits..

  2. I've never heard of this. I'll have to look into it. Looks really nice. xo

  3. I will create a series of blurbs about my mother and her life, memories i have and collect others from family members. I will also do the same for my grandmother (her mother). This way I will always have a book of memories of my mother ( who passed when I was 12) and so will the family. As well, to be sure there will be memories of my grandmother so that we will always be able to remember her.

  4. How have I not heard of this? Oh internet, you kill me. How fun!

  5. that's awesome....I am totally going to check it out!


People who are pink & fabulous...
