Your Blog Readers are Hungry!
My girl, Arika, wrote up this article and I wanted to share. She and I are business partners at www.YummyPLR.com (where you can get PLR recipes and food content).
Serve Up Tasty Recipes for your Blog Readers
by Arika Lewis
Are you looking for a fast way to add appeal to your blog? Try adding recipes! It's an easy way to add content that people will “eat up”. Everyone eats and most people cook, at least a little bit. But, how do you get recipes that you can use on your blog? There are numerous places to find recipes and I'll give you a few ideas in just a bit, but first let's discuss some legalese.
To keep from violating any copyright laws, you can not just take recipes out of cookbooks or magazines and type them into your blog. You'll absolutely want to be sure that any recipe you use does not contain the original directions word for word. Both recipe instructions and recipe collections may be copyright protected. Therefore, you have to use other options.
Now let's cover my favorite ways to find recipes that you can use on your mom blog.
We all have recipes that we make on a regular basis at home. Maybe a favorite dish that is easy to make and everyone loves? Do you have a specialty? Or just a handful of favorite dishes?
If so, get them on your computer and use them on your blog.
Aunts, Grandma & Friends
Does your mother have a special chili recipe that everyone loves? Ooh, and that spicy dip that your sister always brings to football parties.
Look around the Thanksgiving dinner table and ask everyone to share their recipes. Then, start asking your friends, neighbors and co-workers.
Hire a Writer
Another way to get recipes for your blog is to hire a ghostwriter to write them for you. This is a great way to save time and focus your energy elsewhere be it on your website, marketing efforts, or something else. Keep in mind that hiring someone will cost money. However, for most the cost is worth it when you look at the time and effort necessary to do it yourself. You'll have more time to focus on other aspects of your business. Also, you can assign a project to a freelance writer and have it back quicker than you might on your own. You might check out elance.com or shelancers.com for starters.
The fourth (and my personal favorite) way to get recipes for your blog is to purchase PLR recipes. The great thing about PLR recipes is:
- You aren't stuck coming up with all of the recipes yourself.
- You don't have to pay someone else to write them for you.
- You can change the recipes as much or as little as you'd like.
- You can split them up and add them to multiple blogs. You can pretty much do whatever you'd like with them to create a product, freebie or something else.
You can get a lot of PLR recipes for cheap. Some PLR sites sell them for less than a dollar each.
Of course there are some rules with PLR recipes and depending on where you get your recipes the rules vary. For instance, most PLR content providers will not allow you to submit PLR articles to article directories or offer them as private label rights content elsewhere. So, be sure to check the rules before purchasing any PLR content.
A final tip: I recommend that you edit your PLR recipes so they are unique. Some ways to do this are:
- Modify the directions.
- Make the title sound more interesting.
- Give the reader some additional tips. Maybe a favorite side disk or a way to speed up the preparation.
Now you know how very easy it is to add a recipe section to your blog. I hope you'll consider getting started right away so you can attract hungry readers.
