Blurb

Is there a way to search meaningfully on blurb? There are like 44,000 books under Arts & Photography and no one would go through the entire list to find what's interesting.

Good question - I tried to browse the Blurb bookstore for some inspiration today and came away feeling like it was a waste of time.

Yeah, I have had this issue as well. I usually start with "staff picks", but they aren't always that good. I suppose they choose a variety of books that highlight what all you can do with Blurb, as opposed to great books.

I have tried searching by key terms, but that necessitates that the author saw fit to keyword their book when they posted it on Blurb, which isn't always the case. I didn't do so at first when I made my books on Blurb, and only later went back and added key words.

So really, I've got nothing. But if someone figures something out I'd love to hear it.
