Blurb books and offers


I wanted to do a post and talk about Blurb books and my posts about them and how I plan to share their offers.

As I've mentioned before, I was using Blurb for my photobooks for years before looking into their affiliate programme. I'm now an affiliate, which simply means that if you click on a link in one of my posts and order your own book through them then I get a tiny amount of money (and it is really small). I used to receive free books from them, but they no longer offer that so I pay for my own books now.

I have looked into other affiliate programmes but there was nothing that I wanted to pursue. The reason is that I didn't want to suddenly start talking about products or stores that I hadn't before, just to make some money. I became an affiliate for Blurb because I was already talking about their products and because it's a company that I genuinely want to promote because I appreciate their goods.

Now, Blurb sends me offers to share all the time. And I want to pass those offers on to you. BUT I also don't want to turn my blog into a hard-sell commercial enterprise (we all know those blogs, ahem.) I share them now and again but there are plenty that don't make it to my blog. So I thought I'd start sharing them at the bottom of regular posts.

I currently post on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, with an outfit post on Fridays. I think I'll add any current Blurb offers to my Fashion Friday posts, so you can always pick up the latest code but not have extra posts just about Blurb. I hope that suits you - please let me know if you have any other ideas, for example if you'd like to see a Blurb post on its own as an extra post, detailing the offer, or a separate page with the latest Blurb offers.

I'd love to hear from you. Have you ever used one of the offers I've posted? Are you likely to?

That said, I will share the latest offers for you here, and it is (this is an affiliate link).

  1. Awesome! I got hooked on Blurb because of your posts, and now I do an annual 'yearbook' like yours! I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for deals through your affiliate links. Have you ever created a page through a different process (ie Photoshop, InDesign, etc) and imported the whole thing? I'm.looking for ways to incorporate some more creative options....

    1. I haven't done anything like that, but you totally could! Just save your creation as a jpeg and import it into the book just like any other picture.
