It’s not you, it’s us.

The Blurb website will be down for maintenance this Friday (July 18th) from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. PDT (that’s 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Saturday, July 19th, GMT). We’ll be down again on Sunday (July 20th) from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m. PDT (or 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. GMT). The site will be inaccessible during these times, and you won’t be able to upload books.

In addition, both the Book Preview feature as well as our GroupBook Facebook app will be unavailable from Friday at 11 p.m. through Sunday at 2 p.m. PDT. During this time, anyone that tries to view your book’s preview will see a message explaining our downtime.

We know, this isn’t great news for some of you, but a little maintenance goes a long way around here. Thanks for your patience.

  1. My first Blurb book…… Took me close to a year to get up the courage to push the buttons on the computer to get this far with it…..

  2. As a graphic designer who is in book publishing, and has been working on a Mac since the inception of electronic publishing, it ironically never occurred to me that there were sites that allowed you to create your own book. Only after I got my iMac at home, and was playing around with iPhoto and their book templates, did a colleague recommend Blurb as a better and more economical site. So, I redid my book, as designed in iPhoto, and sent it off to Blurb to be printed. My book, visually detailing a trip to Greece in September 2007, by a group of us to disperse the ashes of a best friend who had died in 2006, to whom my book is dedicated, turned out to be one of the most rewarding projects I have done in a 30 year career, bringing praise from my boss, as well as the Editor-in-Chief, not to mention friends. The service you provide is first rate and I look forward to future projects as I shoot more images.
