Printing your blog as a book

Travel Forums System Talk Printing your blog as a book

Hey everyone,

I just got an email from Into Real Pages and they are running a Christmas special on turning blogs into books. They are (as far as I know) the only company that will print Travellerspoint blogs into physical books. I haven't done it myself yet, so a bit hard to speak of the results, but if you are keen to try it out, now is as good a time as any. From the photos I've seen of finished books, they look pretty good.

The promo code is WINTER19 and will give you a 20% discount.

If you do try it out, please do report back and let me know what it's like. I want to build in some more integration into their system if people like this.

Thanks a lot, Peter! Good idea. The only drawback is that I often come back to my blogs finding and correcting a mistake or two, exchanging photographs or adding a paragraph or two...:)

You could always check and edit the blog before going ahead. And according to the info on the website you can also edit while creating the book. I'd be tempted to try it with my North Korea blog but I'm less than halfway through publishing so will have to see if the offer's still valid by the time I finally finish!

I should probably disclose that TP does get some commission from these sales theoretically (not from this promo code specifically). Truthfully I don't expect that to ever be a whole lot, so am not particularly fussed. It's more that I know some people have been keen for printed books in the past and this is as far as I'm aware the best option at the moment :)

No worries - I assumed as much and I'm sure I'm not the only one who's keen that you make some income in order to keep TP running!
