How do you like the idea of compiling all the winning posts into an ebook? What do you think of Mr G Vishwanath’s idea?
I just started copying and pasting all the award winning blog posts into a text file.
I am including the Category, the title of the blog post, the author, the date and the link, followed by the full text of the blog post.
I am copying and pasting simultaneously into sets of files for each category.
All the blog posts of a particular category will be compiled into a single file.
I am also copying and pasting ALL the blogs in all the categories into a single large text file.
This is to enable me to transfer the whole thing to my Ipad and to my pen drive for off line reading, on any convenient device, even without an internet connection.It will be a great E book for me to savour in installments as and when I find the time and inclination. I propose to call this e book “Tejaswee Rao Award winning blog posts – 2011” and also include your blog site as the principal reference.
I can also prepare a pdf file of the contents later after some formatting but a text file will be smaller, and more easily readable on a variety of devices.
When completed I hope to have a fine collection of essays from a set of talented and unsung writers who deserve a wider readership.
If any one else interested in a copy I will make it available after I complete it.
I may need a couple of days more to finish the task.
There is no commercial gain for me and I am doing this for my convenience and the pleasure and satisfaction it gives me. I am willing to share it with any body without any consideration. I have all the time in the world to do this these days.
In case any blogger has an objection, I may please be alerted and I will exclude his/her contribution from this compilation. Since all the posts have already appeared publicly and and are freely available to any one I don’t think there is anything illegal in what I am doing. However it is better to be safe than sorry later.
