A while ago I decided to start sharing links from my quarterly newsletter.
The post was so successful, ricocheting around Twitter and Facebook, that I’ve decided to post a list after each newsletter comes out.
So, in the meantime, sign up for the Will Write for Food newsletter. You’ll get only four emails per year, with the next one at the end of September. It’s filled with useful info for food writers, bloggers, recipe developers, cookbook authors and social media mavens. There are lots of links, not just the ones listed in my posts.
And now, here are 10 links from my most recent newsletter. They should keep you busy until my next newsletter arrives:
1. Sharing Recipes on Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+. Good advice on how to post recipes ethically and how to contact people who are violating copyright. On a similar theme, check out this piece on copyright myths.
3. How to (Really) Make $1,000,000 Selling E-Books: Real-World Case Studies. Forget the overblown title. If you want to make and sell an e-book, here’s a long post with tons of practical information.
5. About to write a query letter to literary agents? See this post with 11 pitch letters that worked.
6. If you are a book author, you need to know about Goodreads (recently acquired by Amazon). It’s a powerful place to promote your books and some authors are on it daily.
7. Jennifer Bain caused a sensation when she revealed the details of her cookbook deal in the Toronto Star, followed by another feature about the photo shoot. There’s lots of inside information here that make both pieces worth a read.
8. The Association for Food Journalists recently updated its guidelines for food critics.
9. Think you know Google Analytics? Read 20 Must Know Tips and Tricks to Master Google Analytics Data to test your understanding or learn something new.
10. Bloggers Replace Mom’s Recipe Box as Source of Food Knowledge. Half of all consumers use social media sites to learn about food.
