———————————-

We are back and super excited to be hosting The Food Blogger Cookbook Swap of 2014! (Already Completed)

A fun way to connect with new food bloggers and pass on gently used (or new) cookbook(s) from your collection that aren’t getting much use to another food blogger in our community.

Every FBPS participant will mail a gently used (in good condition) or new cookbook from their own collection, so there is no need to buy anything new.

The ONLY COST to you is the cost of postage ($5.95 flat rate padded priority mail envelope anywhere in the U.S.)!

Priority Mail® Padded Flat Rate Envelope 12-1/2″ x 9-1/2″

Hosted by Alyssa of Everyday Maven and Faith of An Edible Mosaic

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE PROP SWAP:

  • Food Bloggers who have had an active food blog for at least 6 months and who post original content at least two times a month.
  • We will be checking every blog before approving participation. A food blog is an actual WordPress, Blogger, Typepad, or Tumblr page, not a Facebook page or Pinterest group board.
  • Food bloggers who live in the United States. 
  • Food Bloggers who are available to meet EVERY deadline (see below).

All Cookbook Swap Participants agree to send a cookbook that is either gently used, barely used or unused from their own collection. The value should be at approximately $20.00 USD. You are more than welcome to send a book that is valued higher than $20, but please don’t send a cookbook valued under $17.00.
