You probably already know that I love Dana Shultz from Minimalist Baker (seen here and here). But like most of my internet girlfriends, we hadn’t ever actually spoken before this podcast. But based on our emails, her Lil Jon and Martin references, and her undying dedication to creating new dairy-free mac & cheese recipes, I knew that we’d hit it off (and we did).
In this episode, Dana and I discuss her decision to ditch the traditional publisher route and self-publish her cookbook, her top tips for creating a website that Google loves, how she’s taken her photography skills to the next level, and the most important thing she believes you need to have a successful website.
