Preserve your Story with “Print My Blog” WordPress Plugin

I am reblogging this post from the very generous and talented Mike Nelson. He prepared a PDF copy of my blog (WordPress.com) which I greatly appreciated. I had tried to do this myself using other methods but never found a suitable result. Mike’s solution worked very well for me. If interested, I encourage you to give it a try!

A few months ago I wrote about how most current digital content, including blogs, probably won’t be readable in 100 years. Quite a few commenters said they really just want to make a paper copy of their entire blog, but there’s no easy way to do that.

So, a few weeks ago I created a WordPress plugin that makes it easy to print your entire blog. It’s called Print My Blog, and is available for free download from WordPress.org. After installing it, it’s just 2 clicks to create a paper or PDF copy of your entire blog. It also avoids printing ink-guzzlers, like your site’s header image, menus, or sidebar widgets. It just prints your blog’s content, the stuff you’d want to read.

Here is a 2 minute video showing “Print My Blog” WordPress plugin to create a PDF of my entire blog.

Oops, I Did It Again

My excuse this time was... Our family time together was so rich and full that the following event came and went unnoticed by me. Being one who is prone to reflect, this oversight was highly unusual. And, I didn't make any New Years' Resolutions (also unusual). Perhaps this is all leading to a less driven …

Welcome, Old Blogspot Posts

I’ve recently moved my blog over from WP.org (self-hosted) to WP.com (Personal Plan) and couldn’t be happier. The peace-of-mind alone has been well worth the effort spent in making the switch.

I just came across Mike Nelson’s post about his recent blog platform change. Some blogs that I follow currently use Blogspot. I know that many of them have never experienced a single technical problem (something of which I could only dream)! Still, Mike’s post gave me pause. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic (as I know Mike would as well).

Today, I finally brought my old Blogspot blog’s posts, cmljnelson.blogspot.com, over to my WordPress.com blog, cmljnelson.wordpress.com. I’m pretty happy with how it went, so I thought I’d share why and how I did it. Also, my blog’s timeline now looks weird, with about a 5 year gap of zero blog posts, so I thought I should explain that.

Why I was on Blogspot to Begin With

I was taking a Computer Science class at BYU which required us to have a blog. There was no required technology, but we just needed to have a public blog and use it. That was actually a very good idea, in my opinion. I forced us to “get with it”- not just understanding how to code, but understanding the culture and trends. One of which is blogging. I’ve found blogging helpful, like keeping a good journal. Except it’s searchable. And I get to share…
