If you’re like many mom bloggers, you may run out of things to talk about on occasion. Or maybe you just get tired and don’t feel like chatting some days, but you know you need an active blog if you’re going to make money — and many bloggers rely on their blog income to feed their families. So, how do you attract more readers and the search engines to your blog on a daily basis? Easy! Add a recipe of the day to keep your blog fresh and tasty. But, where do you find recipes that you can use? Before I tell you the answer, let’s get the legal stuff out of the way.
To keep from breaking the copyright laws and getting yourself in a bit of trouble, you can not just copy and paste recipes or type them in. They are not public domain. Both collections of recipes and recipe instructions may be copyrighted. I recommend that you search google for “recipe copyright” to read the full scoop. But suffice it to say, you can’t just use other people’s recipes legally. You have to use other methods.
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, type them into your blog. They are yours to do with as you wish. Anything that you pull directly from your own head — is free to use on your blog.
Aunts, Grandma & Friends
Does your family have a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation? How about something your favorite Aunt brings to Christmas dinner every year that everyone loves?
Ask your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to contribute their favorite recipes to your collection.
Hire a Writer
The second method that I’d like to share is to hire a ghostwriter to write articles for you. Now, many people don’t think about using a ghostwriter in this way, but it can certainly save you much time — that you could spend in other ways.
I’ve saved the best for last. My favorite way to get recipes for your blog is to buy PLR or private label rights recipes for your use. Why do I love PLR so much?
You don’t have to write the recipes yourself.
You don’t have to pay the big bucks for a writer.
You can edit 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 tons of recipes for cheap. Some PLR memberships sell them for less than $1 per recipe.
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:
Change the directions slightly.
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 that you know how easy it is to add recipes to your blog, you can get started right away. Your blog will go from bare to bountiful.
