Introduce yourself in a few lines : You, your passions, your projects…


First of all, thank you to the BlookUp Team for your trust.
I’m Nadia from the literature blog “Le Style de ma Plume“. Mom of 2 little angels, blogger, administrative employee, I love this exciting rhythm of life: Diversify my occupations while keeping my literature priorities in sight.

Could you explain to our readers what your blog is about ?


Through my blog, I wish, to share my readings in an original way, without any pretention.

In my opinion, reading is a journey of senses. So, what is more natural than sending a postcard from my current destination to my readers…

I also share interviews that I make myself, and you will discover articles as well.

I wrote for Webzines et paper magazine (Alhy magazine, Foulexpress, On behalf of the graphic designer “graphidine”…)

So far, what moment of your blogger’s life was the most significant ?


The launch ! When I went from development to achievement by buying the domain name. Then by clicking on www.lestyledemaplume.com

From there, I only remember lots of beautiful encounters… Projects…

Did your passion for books and writing have a decisive influence on the idea to turn your blog into a book ?
Yes, quite… This was only logical to me. Turn my blog into a book, what an ingenious idea!

How did you hear about BlookUp ?


I spotted the concept a few months ago on the internet.
I was curious about testing it and share my experience, so I contacted you.

What are the positive elements about the platform ?


The rapidity and the intuitiveness of the platform. Overall, the platform is open to anyone, with or without computing knowledge.

What are the areas for improvement ?


For me, and as previously exposed on my blog, it was the heterogeneous quality of the photos.

Nevertheless, you explained that from now, an alert will be put in place in order to have the possibility to delete or modify the picture when one is likely to be improved.

It is a huge and sincere YES!

Discover the new service that gives value to your digital posts!

Blogs appeared in the 90’s. First used by professionals and companies, private individuals haven’t waited to adopt those digital spaces of expression.

Maybe you too could own a blog like 250 millions of people in the world?

Blogs and social networks have replaced private journals nowadays, people like to speak about them, what they love, their passions and express the need to share every single moment of their daily life. And while we spend more and more time feeding digital accounts, BlookUp offers to do the opposite!  Give tangible form again to digital contents to turn them into books.

Inventor of this new use, BlookUp allows to “blook” (contraction of the words “book” and “blog”) your blogs or social networks accounts, to materialize your virtual contents in the form of a book, using the codes of a traditional publication.

That is to say with a customized cover, pagination, table of contents…

Why make your blook?

If blogs and social networks are amazing spaces to express yourself, internet remains insubstantiable and this accumulation of digital posts!

It is pointless if it’s not shared or valued. That’s where book still have a bright future, because beyond a reminder book or a sharing book, making your blog book is an event!  It’s making YOUR book.

By creating their blook, bloggers customized their cover, adjust the layout, they give life to a publication! A transmissible work, certainly modest but dear to them and the ones they love.

Because the content of a blog is often very personal and concerns a family, it requires investment, passion, time to write, post…

The more time they spend on their blog or their social network accounts, the more the authors want to keep a material track of their work.

Already 8000 bloggers have made their blook, what about you?
