January YBR, In Top 10 and Top 100!

by Spicie Foodie on January 18, 2011

It’s time again for another edition of YBR! This month’s YBR roundup will be the first for 2011 and I’m excited to see how everyone has kicked off the new year. Before I move on to the information on how to participate in January’s YBR I would like to say Thanks. A few days ago I received notice that my cookbook, An Epiphany of the Senses, was among the top 100 cookbook’s selling on Lulu for the month of December.

Sweet! Thank you so much and obviously this wouldn’t have been possible without all of your support and purchases. Well if that wasn’t enough, My 2011 Calendar was also in the top 100 sellers for last month. Wait it gets even better, it also climbed to #7 in the best sellers for this week!

How cool is that? Again thank you for your purchases, bear hugs for everyone!

January 2011 YBR announcement:
Show me Your Best Recipes
Your Best Recipe, a monthly roundup of your best recipes hosted by Spicie Foodie. There are no limitations as to what you can submit, anything goes. No limits on your kitchen nor photography skill, everyone is invited to join. This is not a competition, it is just a showcase of great food being cooked all over the world. And here is how you can participate :

Requirements to participate:
1. It has to be a recipe that you published in January, and it has to be a recipe that you feel was your favorite one posted that month. It can be anything your heart desires. Your submitted recipe can be your own creation or one that you adapted from another foodie, just give them credit on your post.

2. Sign up to January’s roundup by using the Linky form provided below this post. (It is the “Click Here to Enter” button. AND please link to your blog NOT the recipe you are submitting for the YBR. Your thumb doesn’t have to be the recipe you are submitting, it can be your profile or blog photo.)

3. You must choose and display any of the following badges to invite your visitors to the roundup being hosted here.

Some participants like to use this badge below on a new blog post inviting their readers to see the roundup.

4. By the 29th of January please email me at spiciefoodie (@) gmail.com the following:
1. Your Name, Blog Name, Name and link to your chosen recipe published in January.
2. A small image of your dish. You must own the photo, and it cannot be a creative commons or public domain photo.

On January 31, the last day of the month, I will post the roundup photos with a link to each of your sites and recipes. It would also be good if you invite your readers to the roundup by also posting a new blog entry or mentioning your participation in a new post (the last day of the month or after) on your blogs with a YBR badge and a link to the roundup here on Spicie Foodie. This way we can all help spread the YBR submitted love around even more!

If you need any help or clarifications post a comment or send me an email. I’ll make sure to post a reminder as we get closer to the deadline.
