Christmas 2005 solved

(Printer friendly version)

Talking with Becca tonight in Bountiful, I discovered what I want to give my siblings and parents for Christmas this year: a printed book with all of our blog posts from 2005 (well, the seven out of eight of us who blog—eight if Camilla ever decides to take a stab at citizen-publishing).

That's the high-level idea. I don't know yet exactly how I'll lay it out. For instance, should all posts be arranged chronologically, or sections per author (or per author per blog in the case of Becca and Anna)?

I'll typeset it using the Memoir LaTeX class. I can have copies printed down in Utah County at Alexander's.

On Christmas day I'll have to give rain-checks, since there'd still be another weeks worth of posts to include in the final product.

Sorry, I'm not a complete stalker but at the same time I don't think you know who I am... I know how it can be weird to get a comment on a blog from someone that isn't in your family or group of friends... Anywho, I'm sort of a friend of the family (Paul's friend) / and ex-paper boy.

Anywho, I must say that your idea sounds like a great Christmas present. I'd suggest print blogs in sections per author, so you could quickly glance at one persons year, chronologically. Maybe if the Sugden's were as technically advanced we'd do something like this. Well, now that I think about it, we kind of have; for the last two years, each member of my family is responsibile for their own scrapbook page, and, come Christmas eve, makes eight copies (one for Mom, one for dad, one for each of our five siblings, and one for ourselves) and distributes them. Not quite as consise as bloggings, but you still get to see what the family has been up to over the year. If you kept up the yearly Cleverly blog review, it would be an awesome eternal heirloom of sorts...
