Print & Share!

One of the interesting things about managing a blog is the sense of frustration that occurs when you can’t find exactly the right tool to do what you need. That was the case when, a few months ago, people started asking for copies of my blog articles to hand out to their fellow horse owners. So I’ve been searching for a tool that would allow me to automatically format blog posts in an acceptable format for printing, but, alas, all of the add-ins I could find either wouldn’t generate an acceptable layout orĀ  required the reader to jump through too many hoops (like sign up for the service or endure endless ads).

And so, I finally decided to give up the search and start formatting them to my liking as printable PDF files, available on their own page on the site. That way, I’ve got absolute control over the layout/formatting (I value nice & neat!) and can maintain the continuity of the article as posted. A link to their page now appears in the sidebar under the heading “Printable Article Archive.” I’ve started with four popular ones, and I’ll continue to expand the offerings as time permits. Please share them with your friends!

Exciting news coming soon…
