COngratulations! Winner have 24 hours to get back to me. Or else I will have to pick another winner.
It’s a giveaway time! I have scheduled 6 giveaways this month as a part of my blog’s first birthday celebration, as I promised in my birthday post – remember? So here I present you the first giveaway…The most helpful book I have ever read, “Food Blogging for Dummies” sponsored by Kelly Senyei of Just a Taste.
Kelly, herself is a food blogger of Justataste.com and has been blogging for more than 5 years. Not only that, she is a food journalist, stylist, photographer and a chef. She has even worked with Food network and she has a degree in culinary arts. I think her qualification says it all that this book is written by someone with lottsss of experience.
Are you relatively a new food blogger or even wanting to start one and no idea where to start? This book has all the information you need to have one valuable food blog. From soup to dessert, anything and everything! This is simply the Bible for Food blogging!
I have known Kelly through one of the food blogging conferences. She is a down to earth, charming personality and full of knowledge. She knows every bits of this blogging world!
Check out this video yourself, you will fall in love with this beautiful personality!
At first when I received her email saying that she wants to send me a review copy of her book, I was like – Oh wow! That’s something new…but why not? In few weeks, it arrived at my doorsteps, and as it arrived, just like another books, it found its place on my cookbook shelf. You know what I am talking about right? The huge pile of cooking magazines and cookbooks that we plan to read when we get time and the pile gets bigger and bigger???
But this book was exceptional – I was curious to find out what’s in there and so I started reading. And then I realized, oh! This is like a perfect manual for how to have a successful blog! And very soon this book took place on my bedside table from bookshelf.
Kelly has done great job writing this book very carefully, the book has 16 chapters. Every chapter is dedicated to one special topic – like what blogging platform to choose to how to make money out of your blog. How to use your camera to how to take good food photographs. How to write a recipe to how to develop one. Finding your voice to eating with your eyes. Even how to upload something on the blog…like image or any other media etc…Every tiny detail that you need to know for blogging is there.
Why to spend time finding things on Google, when you have all the information you need related to food blogging in this book.
Kelly dear, I so wish I had this book in my hand when I started my blog – but never late than never right? I know I need to make a few – okay lots of changes after reading your book!
Thank you Kelly.
I am totally sold to this book and totally recommend it. It’s worth every penny.
