I’m enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning here in the Phoenix area, and I just wanted to let you know about a couple of cool things. The first is a Food Blogger Pro special, and the second is a wonderful free book preview for you.
Here’s the skinny on the special. FoodBloggerPro.com is offering bloggers a special deal until the end of January. Sign up and get a month of access to the site for just $1. If you decide you’re not interested just cancel and you will not be charged for the following month. What does site offer? It has 300 concise and to the point videos with topics covering food photography, photo editing, setting up a WordPress blog, SEO, Google anyalytics and webmaster’s tools, URL shorteners, running a give-away, generating income with Google Adsense and affiliate marketing, and much, much more.
I have been a part of the community and highly recommend FoodBloggerPro.com. I especially enjoy Lindsay’s food photography tutorials that instruct how to use props to set up a shot (composition); lighting; editing in I-Photo, Photoshop or Lightroom; and photo optimization to make a photo load faster. Within weeks I had my photos accepted to Foodgawker and Tastespotting. Wow! I was also doing a lot of things incorrectly, that were just slowing down my site, and I learned how to correct my mistakes. The other thing I love about the site is the forum. When I have questions I can go there and get the answer I need. If you’d like to check it out just click on FoodBloggerPro.com and sign up.
The second cool thing is that Inkling.com contacted me so I could share links with you about their new app and free download of a chapter from Modernist Cuisine at Home by Nathan Myhrvold. The book is very cool. I saw a video promotion of it some time back and marveled at the detail that went into photos. They actually saw a casserole dish and a pressure cooker in half to give the reader a view of what goes on inside during the cooking process. At any rate, I thought the author’s approach was unique and that you might be interested in getting a free chapter to see the app. Or click here for the book: Modernist Cuisine at Home.
