My Social Books

20170102_165201I love to write. But I rarely have time to write all the things I want. Somehow I manage to keep up on this weekly blog, but that’s about all I do on a regular basis. I’d love to write more – especially when it comes to keeping up on my journal. I can’t tell you the last time I wrote in there.

I used to beat myself up about it. I would feel guilty for not documenting all of the exiting, crazy happenings in my life. But then I found My Social Book.

My Social Book is a company that allows people to print all of the quotes, pictures, videos and links that they post to Facebook into a neat, crisp hard-covered book.

I may not have time to write in my journal. But with the help of my smart phone it’s easy to document all of the silly, wild, amazing things that happen in my life. I post to Facebook several times a week. I post funny things that my kids say. I post about fun activities we do. I post about my kids successes. I post my failures as a stay-at-home mom. I even post links to each one of these blog posts I write.

All of these posts can be put into my My Social Book books. Whenever I post a link or a video it appears as a QR code in the book. I can scan it with a smart device and it will pull it up. Not only are my posts included, but all of the comments that my friends and family make are also printed in the books.

I have had five books printed now and I love each and every one of them. My kids and I have a great time looking at the books and remembering all the things we have said and done. We smile and laugh as we flip through the pages.


I have started printing one for each year I have been on Facebook. So far I have made a book for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

The books aren’t cheap, but there are all kinds of promotions online for discounts. I have spent an average of $50 on each of my books. But they mean much more than that to me.

To me they are my journal – along with these blog posts of course. To be honest, they are probably a better representation of my life then any journal I could write myself. They show the best and worst, happiest and saddest, and the weakest and strongest parts of my life.

I will cherish them for a long, long time.
