Over the past few weeks I have been sharing how, and why creating with Blurb is an incredible way to share your ideas and memories.
Whether your book will include photos, words, or both, Blurb can help you share your story in the best possible way.
Not everyone has the desire to write a novel, or sell a book of their photos, patterns or recipes.
Some of us just want to commemorate a trip, an event, or a special occasion in a tangible way.
Others want to visually capture a business concept, share our family genealogy or make an organized recipe book.
Whatever you want to make, Blurb makes it easy and affordable to achieve!
Chances are you already have an idea for the kind of book you would want to create.
Whether you are passionate about photography, poetry, memoirs, or comic book creation you can bring it all to life with Blurb.
In case you are curious, here are my book ideas:
- Family Recipe Book
- Family Genealogy
- Oombawka Design Crochet Pattern Book
- an Art Book filled with drawings and art my children have made
For a little more inspiration, here are a few ways people have used Blurb to create their own creative and useful books:
A beautiful, custom-made book is one of the most thoughtful, meaningful gifts you can give. With Father’s Day, graduation, and wedding season just around the corner, this type of book can make the perfect gift that keeps on giving and with Blurb’s cutting-edge book-making tools, you can add photos, words, stories, drawings—anything you want—and make something that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Ideas include: a favorite recipes book, a baby’s first year book, a book of poems, a senior year book, etc.
You have a story to tell. Ok, so you may not have hiked across the Sahara, or been on Broadway, but that doesn’t mean that you haven’t impacted lives, or had interesting life experiences. And it certainly doesn’t mean that you don’t have valuable insights to impart. Even if you have no interest in sharing your memoir with anyone, the process of reflecting on your life and writing down some of your thoughts and experiences can be incredibly eye-opening and cathartic.
What better way to showcase your best friend than with their very own book. It could be something as simple as pictures and quips of trips to the park, naps on the couch, playing with a favorite toy, or basking in the sun, to a more in-depth life story book about your pet. These can be shared as gifts, sold to fellow pet-lovers, or just kept for your own personal enjoyment.
Non-Profit Fundraising Books
With Blurb, non-profits can share their story with compelling words and images and then sell them via Blurb’s Sell & Distribute option to fundraise for their organization. For example, Gerrit Greve’s Hearts for Healing book showcases how kids interpret a giving heart through art. It also chronicles how Greve’s students gained new confidence in themselves and their abilities knowing that their art could make a difference in someone’s life and health. This beautiful book is an example of how Blurb’s platforms can be used to support a cause that’s important to you.
These are only a few ways that you can use Blurb to share your story, or promote a purpose – there are many, many others. So, get creative!
