Welcome back to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. I’m excited to be sharing this new episode with you. I record a podcast episode every week and have done so since September. I want to first say that I’m so excited I jumped into this space to celebrate cookbook readers, buyers, collectors, writers, and clubs. Not many other podcasts are celebrating you.
My journey with cookbooks started with cookbook reading and has taken me on a path through cookbook editing and now writing 4 cookbooks of my own. I love writing cookbooks and there are several advantages I see to writing a cookbook over a food blog. I say this knowing there are many successful, professional food bloggers, but cookbooks suit me well (and they may suit you well too). For today’s episode, I share why I choose to write cookbooks over a food blog. Here is the list of whys – and in the episode I explain each one in more details.
- Food photography is not my responsibility
- Cookbook manuscript writing is a finite project
- Cookbooks are portable and can be carried to events
- Participation in gifts and giveaways
- Status of working with a traditional publisher
- Prove to self could do it
- Attend Kentucky Book Fair (now called Kentucky Book Festival)
- Learn and help others in their kitchens
- Share simple, delicious food
