Blurb-A BOOK SMART way TO CREATE A PRINTED MEMORABLE KEEPSAKE

It truly is amazing what one can do with technology today. I can not believe how much easier things are in this day and age. I would have loved to have all the things I have at my finger tips that I do today when I was in high school and collage. It seems there is nothing one can’t do. You can create your own website, shoot and edit your own films, and then share everything you do with the world at large. And now you can add making your own books and magazines to this ever growing list.

Blurb or Book Smart is an online service that allows you to create books, brochures, pamphlets and even magazines. It is a wonderful way to let your creative side step out in to the non cyber world. And it gives your photos new life and is an unforgettable way you can share them with your friends and family.

I was amazed how easy it was to use and how quickly I received my book after placing my order

But there other uses for Blurb too, you can also use it to create professional portfolios. From graphics, to photography to apparel, to anything really, the only limitations are your imagination. I used Blurb a number or years ago for my portfolio and I was amazed how easy it was to use and how quickly I received my book after placing my order—if memory serves it was three days.

So if you are itching to get your photos off your phone or DSLR, or are a creative in need of way to promote yourself, or you just want to have fun be sure to check out this wonderful service. Plus they make great gifts. Mother’s Day is just around the corner, wouldn’t mom love a keepsake of old (and new) family photos? A memorable gift to be sure, this is one gift that you can rest assured will not be re-gifted.

    My husband and I was just talking about how we survived back in the days before mobile phones, social medias and the .com boom. LOL! Isn’t it crazy how the world has changed, these days there are something for everyone.
