Print Friendly Button

Hey Blog readers - I have been browsing lots of great blogs lately and noticed that most of them have some type of "print" button for their posts. This comes in handy when I'm looking up recipes and want to print off the ingredient list & directions. For a while I was always copying & pasting the text from a blog to a word document or just printing the whole blog post. This definitely gets the job done, but I wanted to find a way to offer you all the option of printing just the necessary info from a particular post if you wanted to try out a recipe I've posted about.

After some googling, I came across this website called Print Friendly. I've added this button to the end of my blog posts, so readers can now print the post without having all the info on the sidebar of the web page come up. Once you click the print friendly button, a separate page will open up with the text and images - please note you can click the "remove images" if you don't need the pics that go along with the post. You can also hover the mouse over the post in the new printer friendly box and delete paragraphs from the post if you want to take out some of the information.

Let me know if you have any problems with this button. I'd also love to hear your thoughts/feedback if you use the new print friendly option. Here's a link to get your own print friendly button if you want to add it to your blog. Enjoy and thanks for reading!
