How to Convert Your Blog to PDF

turn your blog into a PDFIf you are serious about your blogging, then you should be equally serious about cataloging and backing up your work as well. One of the best ways to do this is to convert your blog to PDF and essentially make an e-book out of your blog.

BlogBooker is an excellent site that allows you to do just that. In several easy steps, you will be able to turn your blog into an e-book for your safe-keeping or to share with your friends who always forget to check out your blog when you tell them to.

The site works with three of the biggest and most popular blogging websites – WordPress, Blogger and LiveJournal.

Here’s how it works.

LiveJournal

For LiveJournal, all you really have to do is input your LiveJournal username and password. You must also make sure that your blog has previously been converted to UTF8 (click on the image to enlarge it).

BlogBooker will guide you through the process very simply, and it even provides a link at the bottom for you to check whether or not your blog has been converted to UTF8. You are also less likely to get errors in the process if you uncheck all of the listed features.

 

WordPress
