hi,

the main reason we joined travelpod was because we wanted to make our blog into a book at the end of our trip.

we have been away for 4 months and already have 120 blog posts with the average of 15 pics per entry.

we plan to be away for 2 years so wondered how would be best to break this down into books?

ie. 1) can we have the full 2 years blogs (about 730 each over 2 pages and the pics) in one book

2) can we split the total trip into volumes - 2 maybe 3?

what is the maximum number of pages/photos in a book?

we'd be very grateful for your advice

thanks

Once you process your request for the book you will get an error because the book is too big. Then you call our partner, Sharedbook, and they will take your book and break it down into volumes.

Of course you can plan for this in advance and print some books as you go along and call them Volume 1,2,.3 etc yourselves!

Cheers!

Each book can be up to 500 pages. The best thing to do is to preview your book now to get a sense of the size. It doesn't cost anything to preview and there are no obligations.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Hello.

Thanks for everyone's input on this subject! Sounds great!

If we contacted sharedbook at the end of our travels, could we use the ompleted map of the whole trip onto each individual volume?

Would you be able to provide Shredbook's details to us so we have them for future?

Many thanks again for your help!
