Before I get to the YBR announcement I need to ask you guys something to help me out on my first photography tutorial I am going to be posting soon. What photo editing software do you use? Please provide the name and version of the software you use (for example Photoshop CS5). If you do not use any please say so in your comment. Thank you.
**PLEASE READ THE RULES FOR THIS MONTHS YBR, THEY ARE DIFFERENT. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE RULES I WON'T BE ABLE TO INCLUDE YOU IN THE ROUNDUP** THANK YOU.
December's YBR (Your Best Recipe) is going to be a little bit different from the previous months. I had been kicking around the idea of hosting two YBRs this month to 1. Showcase your December recipes and 2. Showcase your best recipe for 2010. But everyone is super busy this month with the holidays leaving us with little to no extra time. So the best solution for this is to host "Your Best Recipes of 2010". In the previous roundup I asked what you guys thought and the majority liked the best of 2010. I'm announcing the YBR earlier this month to give you guys as much time possible to pick your recipe and sign up.
RULES TO PARTICIPATE:
1. If you want to participate sign up using the Linky form below. When it asks you for the link just use your blogs main URL, (for example mine would be : http://spiciefoodie.blogspot.com/). When it asks you for the photo use your profile photo or avatar, it shouldn't be the recipe's photo. When you are asked for the Caption or Title use the name of your blog or your name only, do not use the recipe name.
2. Choose a recipe(one) from your blog that was posted in 2010. Choose a recipe that you feel was your favorite, your biggest culinary accomplishment or just plainly said your best recipe of 2010! REMEMBER there are no limits to who can participate nor your culinary level nor photography skills are important. I am looking for passion and love for what you do.
3. Email the following to me : Your name, Your blog's name, Your blog's URL, Your recipe's name, the link to your recipe, and 1 photo for your recipe which will be used on my roundup. **PLEASE EMAIL THIS TO ME NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 28TH ** to spiciefoodie (@) gmail.com
4. Don't forget to grab your badge and place it somewhere on your blog. You can find the details for the badge here on the YBR dedicated page.
The round up will be published here on Spicie Foodie on December 30, 2010. It would be great if you also invited your readers to come and see your best recipe of 2010 on the roundup here. (Your individual photos will link back to your chosen recipes.) I know it is going to be challenging for you to pick just one of your recipes, but I think it's a great way for all of you to "show off" and be proud of your favorite 2010 recipe.
I can't think of a better way to end 2010 than by showcasing "Your Best Recipes of 2010" I'm so excited!
