adding blog posts to current project
Tips and Tricks

I was wondering if there is a way to slurp more blog posts into a current project? I got real behind on turning the years of my blog into books, and am currently working on the 7th year (2012). When I finish that one, I would like to start working on the book for 2013, one month at a time. Does anyone know of a way to do that?

Thanks in advance!

Blog to book?
Tips and Tricks

In my experience, NO! Maybe someone else has figured out a way but I haven’t. I’m currently working on my 7th blog book. I have had to edit page by page for every book I’ve made. I also like to include the comments from each post into the book, which requires a lot of copy/paste and editing. When BookSmart first came out and I did my first book, you had an option to include comments. Unfortunately, that option disappeared. I also began getting pictures from my computer instead of using the pictures BookSmart slurps. They are better quality, and make it easier to use page templates that have bigger picture areas. I usually reference my blog while working on the book, make note of the picture file (ex: IMG_608, which appears when scrolling over the picture on the blog), and upload them into the program one or two posts at a time, also getting all the comments for each post. Yes, it is time consuming, and I sometimes sit at the computer for days while working on my books. The time is worth it though, I can make the book look exactly how I want it to, and know that each page is edited correctly. It’s an amazing feeling of accomplishment when they arrive in the mail! They also make wonderful presents for family members. Good Luck and DON’T GIVE UP!!!
