Thanks and keep up the good work. Perhaps this should be a "sticky" for a few months?

This is really cool and much needed for new users. I agree, we need to sticky this as a resource.

Thanks

It's good, but PLEASE check the spelling; it looks a little unprofessional to have so many spelling mistakes.

I did run a spell check, but I apologise if a lot of mistakes remained. Were they of the type where the British spelling is different from the American one? I will be more careful, in the future. Spelling is not my strong suit.

I love the concept and the execution of this blog.

Excellent idea, Thank you.

I didn't find any spelling mistakes. I did find some spelling that did fall into the above area.
catalogue - catalog
colour - color
It seems to me that both are acceptable when dealing with an international audience.

A couple of missing apostrophes calibres - calibre's ... dont - don't

and a missing space upto - up to

These are things I would never point out because my brain is constantly filtering such things from my vision. I can't count how many times I've meant to write doesn't but forgot the n't and wrote does. Failing to write the full contraction changes my arguments from can't to can or wouldn't to would. Needless to say in written word this screws up what I was trying to say.

Again many thanks for starting a blog that will clearly cover areas in which many need a little help.

The blog continues to be very useful but I still reckon that it needs a sticky link on the main calibre forum page. It may also be handy, (as the blog grows), to have some sort of articles index within the blog.

Interresting reading. Found some very useful background info about tags and Get Books. I wonder what are the topics of next week.

I've added a link to the blog in the main Recipes sticky, and a link to a recent tutorial in the blog on writing recipes. As I see other recipe-related articles in the blog, I'll try to link them to relevant parts of that sticky. Mods handling other calibre subforums may want to do the same. I'd certainly be happy to add any specific recipe-related article links I miss, if Krittika feels like sending me a note when she's got another great recipe-related article.
