If you’re writing a food blog, chances are you are really proud of your recipes and want to share them to the masses, far and wide. The problem is where do you start? In an increasingly competitive environment and with new food blogs popping up by the dozen on a daily basis, just how do you get your recipes seen?
First off you need to give your recipes a fighting chance, and we highly recommend you use the list below to get your blog and recipes ‘out there’ as much as possible on as many different platforms as you can manage.
The traditional ways of sharing are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest but these can all take a bit of time and effort, however are there are lots of sites you can join which are a great source of ‘passive’ traffic. Examples of these sites are Recipes Plus and MyTaste which once you’ve registered, automatically add an exert of your recipe to their site which gets seen by a lot of people who then have to click through to your blog to get the rest of the recipe.
Camilla who writes Fab Food 4 All loves ‘MyTaste’ – it takes no effort and brings in a steady daily flow of traffic. It just automatically adds your recipes from your feed and there’s a handy chart too.
Jagruti writes at Jagruti’s Cooking Odyssey and is a big fan of Yummly, a site where you can ‘yum’ or pin recipes. Make sure you have a yum button on your site so that Yummly users can add your recipes to their Recipe Box.
Becky from Munchies and Munchkins recommends Flipboard which allows you to add content to the magazine style sharing site by using your blog’s RSS feed.
