Somehow I was directed to a blog site called The Blog Designers Network. This site looks interesting and may contain the answers to many questions regarding blogging. I was unable, however, to find my way back to their December 2010 postings where I found this little gem. Their description of this printing option was excellent.
The December post recommended Joliprint - a free service that allows you to add a Blogspot gadget to your blog or a link in your Book Mark Bar. Using this service you create a pdf document of individual blog posting or any screen print you select. I chose the Book Mark Bar option. Having this option as a book mark allowed me to make pdf of other things as well, like a recipe from someone else's blog.
The pdf captures the header, the titles, the pictures, the blog text in a clean simple color presentation. You can then print the document off your computer ... basically for the cost of your paper and the ink. Your choice whether to delete or maintain the pdf copies on your computer. I haven't decided on that yet.
This option works well for me. It will take time to print out all that I have written. As I sort through my postings I may skip some, but it does exactly what I want it to do. And, as suggested by one of my readers, if Blogspot fails at some point or my computer goes belly up - at least I will have my hard copies.
Check out both sites. Tell me what you think. I am very interested in your observations.
