Chances are you’re still feeling guilty about not keeping a journal or preserving your personal history. But today is the day to stop feeling the ghostly fears of unaccomplished tasks and accomplish something today!
If you have shared your life, your dogs, your food, or your genealogy findings on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, then you can turn those digital details into a physical world journal in less than 30 minutes! Oh, yeah. A busy person has time to record their personal history!!!
My Social Book
My Social Book will slurp (pull your posts from your account, with your permission) your Facebook content and prepare a digital book for you to print.
The speed of pulling all of that content is simply amazing! I’ve tried to do this manually it that takes days of repetitive copy and paste work. Oh, my heck. These services are super efficient!
Once you make a few changes to the book title and cover photo, you can order your printed journal which will arrive in a matter of weeks while you drink your favorite beverage and celebrate how amazing you are. No more guilt. No more stress. Just live, post, slurp, print!
My friend Amie Bowser Tennant wrote a lovely review of My Social Book called Turn Facebook Posts into a Book.
My Social Book will allow you to select the date range you want to include in your book. Once the digital magic prepares your proof file, you can then remove any posts that you don’t particularly wish to remember in your printed time capsule. The nice thing is you can publish the book in a softcover or hardcover variation. I recommend always opting for hardcovers. They just last longer!
BlookUp (Facebook and more)
A new possibility is BlookUp. BlookUp will grab your feeds from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr and compile them into a book! I’ll admit this is a brand new discovery for me but it’s something I’m willing to investigate in the near future.
