With this resource, she gives you the tools to do just that.

My thoughts

I'm one of those people that just HAVE to do research.  When I decided I was going to go to school for culinary arts (and looooooooong before that), I read everything I could on cooking, restaurants and more.  When I decided that I wanted to write a book, I read every book and website I could find.  And, a couple of months ago, when I decided to start a blog, I picked up lots of books and looked at lots of websites, trying to see what others have done and pick up ideas and tips from people who were there before me.

When I got the chance to read this for an r2r, I grabbed it up.  Why would I not?  It's the opportunity to learn something more.

I enjoyed this book.  She gives lots of helpful tips (some I had already known, but some I hadn't thought of) and gave examples and encouragement.  It is definitely a good book for someone just starting out or for someone, like me, who wants to make sure they're "doing it right" :)  (Some of the information she provides could also be good for writing articles and things like that as well.)
