¡Help! Has Anyone Tried to Convert Their Blog into an Ebook?

Seeking advice from fellow WordPress users.

We were looking back on our adventures yesterday and it occurred to us that it would be great if we could create an ebook using our posts. The two advantages are:

  1. Access to the stories when offline.
  2. Independent storage of the content.

We've created photobooks before but they are very time intensive. What we are hoping is that some software exists that can copy the content on the blog and paste it into an ebook. We would then edit the ebook to make sure the presentation is perfect, or near enough.

Has anyone experimented with this? Are there any websites you would recommend?

We've had a look at Pressbooks.com but it is not for use on an existing blog, it must be used with a new site. A possibly better option is MagPress, which seems easy but requires a $50 purchase.

Some good advice here but curious to know if anyone has tried anything with success?

Thanks in advance.

Mark and Saskia.

    The actual answer is no, but I have produced eBooks and published them on amazon KDP which is essentially just a case of formatting a Word file and upload it – that would be one option, a straight copy of the blog articles and pasting into an eBook template. You can find templates for free online and you do not need to be tied to amazon.

    Another option is to type “convert Word to epub” into Google and find a free online converter that will turn any Word document into an eBook format which you can then choose to share or sell….
