I decided to choose PDF over other formats (like .chm, .hlp, .doc..) as PDF is print-ready, easily searchable, can be indexed by google and most of us have the free Acrobat Reader.
This is the procedure I followed to generate the PDF file:
- Blogger does not have an export or download function. So I followed the instructions here to create a single file with all my posts.
- I opened a free trial account with Adobe to use their service "Create Adobe PDF Online" - It is a great online tool to convert your documents or Webpages to PDF. The free version allows you to convert upto 3 documents. It even does OCR for you.
- I passed by blog address to CreatePDF and the PDF file was in my inbox the next minute. Wow !! Thank you Adobe.
