Life in the Red Rocks

2012.03 Gunlock (61 of 69)
My goal over the next several weeks is to get through my backlog of photos. I have a ton sitting on my computer that haven't even been looked at. My plan is to organize them, back them up, process them and share a few here, I hope you don't mind a few weeks of travel photos.

My blog has become my journal and photo album/scrapbook, the main place for me to record life. I'm also slowly working to turn my blog into blurb books - one book per year. I finished 2008 late last year, and am now working on 2011 - which I know doesn't make sense, but I couldn't get the photos from 2009 to load to the blurb program so I gave up and moved on.

Have you turned you blog into a book? What service did you use? I was very happy with the result of the first Blurb book I created, but it is a ton of work to put the book together if you don't use their template.

Beautiful red rocks. I wish I was headed that way this year again oh we'll maybe next. I haven't tried the blog to print yet. Though I have encouraged a couple other bloggers to do so. I wish I could buy their blog too Have you ever thought about offering it?

yayyyy for more photos from you :)

These are amazing. The broken bottle on the rock is my favorite. So beautiful.

I've never heard of a blurb book, but what a great idea!

My first year I started printing up my blog so I could keep it in a hard copy. But the formatting was not my favorite. I might need to try a blurb book. These are great Jamie!

Cindy said...

i enjoy your travel photos so much. they are beautiful, interesting and i am an arm chair traveler and get to live vicariously through you :).

i've created a blurb book for each of the last three years and very happy with them, although it does take a lot of time. editing is not my strong suit. i always say i'll work on the current version as the year goes by so as not to be too time-consuming, but i never do.

i'm sure your books are beautiful.

Amaaaaazingly beautiful, I wish I could take pics there too! :-)

I always look forward to your travel photos, Jamie!
Truly some wonderful places you have been.

I did a Blurb book a couple of years ago, and oh yes, it did take much more time than I imagined it would. It was worth it when I saw it though.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
xo.

Those are beautiful! Where is Red Rock?

I've never turned any blog years into books so I can't help you there with suggestions. Good luck though! That's a really cool idea.

These are gorgeous, Jamie! You definitely have an eye for photography. It almost feels like I am there in person again, you capture the beauty of Southern Utah so well.

Such gorgeous photos! I love the idea of creating yearly blog photo books. I always have the best intentions to do so...but never have. Adding that to the list of things to keep me occupied here. :)

And I feel you on the backlogged photos. I haven't shared photos from Paris, Boston, San Diego, my last trip to Kuwait.

Sometimes it's so overwhelming to flip through several hundred photos within a few days of returning. I feel a backlog of photos is only natural for snap-happy girls like us! :)

Lovely photos, looks like a nice place to visit!

justine said...

this looks absolutely amazing wow! great shots. Have you thought of making books with all your photos? I make books with blurb.com and now have about 4 or 5 of various trips, it's a great way of storing photos

I'll never get tired of your travel photos. I've given thought to putting some of my blog entries into a Blurb book, but I don't have the foggiest idea how to begin. I do know I don't want all the posts, just some of them. I have years to go through which is also intimidating. I'd love to see some photos of yours.

Great idea to turn your blog into books. It will be nice to have a tangible record of your travels and commentary.
