New Blog Tip: PrintFriendly

I just discovered an amazing little widget that literally saved me HOURS of future work!  For several months, I've been wanting to convert my recipe posts into alternative print-friendly versions so that y'all can print just the recipe and not all my rambling.  I considered using Goggle Docs, but really didn't want to spend all that time copying, pasting, and reformatting.

Today, I found PrintFriendly.com!  Not only do they offer a widget that I now have at the bottom of each post, but they also offer a PrintFriendly bookmarklet which allows you to turn ANY web page into a print-friendly version!  You may wonder, "Well, what about all the rambling mumbo jumbo that you put in with your recipes?"  You can easily tell it to delete portions of the page!  You can also tell it to not print the images.  (Unfortunately, that is an all-or-nothing feature.)  To make it even better, rather than print the page, you can have it converted to a PDF file and save it on your computer!

I was so excited about this website, I just had to post right away and tell y'all!

Please note: I was not asked to do this review and was not compensated in any way.
Pin It!

  3. Ava, I love this! I'm glad you shared it. I stopped posting recipes for a while now, just because of the typing/cut&pasting that goes along with wanting to share with my readers. I can't wait to add this widget.

    Thanks again!
