How to Start a Recipe Blog

There’s an old saying that “hindsight is wonderful.” The Culinary Institute of America, now located in Hyde Park, New York, at one time was located in New Haven, CT which is not too far from me.  My husband’s first cousin graduated from the Institute when it was  in New Haven, and he would stay with the family during break.

Over the years I’ve come to realize that I really  enjoy cooking, and perhaps I should have looked into attending the Culinary Institute and it’s hospitality programs while it was in Connecticut.  Now I just share my enthusiasm for cooking through my food and recipe Blog.

Having a Blog, is a great way to share information with others in a public forum, by posting comments on a (often free) website.

Recipe Blogs are easy to build; even a novice can set one up in just an hour or less. With free applications like Google’s “Blogger” (blogger.com) or the easy to use WordPress (Wordress.com), a simple blog can be put together that will highlight your thoughts and images. By setting it up with a clean format and using the latest templates, this increases the blog’s appeal and it can be updated as often as you wish.

One fun and profitable way to blog is by starting a recipe blog (and there’s plenty of information on the topic in this Just Add Sweat guide). A recipe blog is where you can post your favorite family recipes, restaurant secrets or other popular “dishes” about the world of cooking. It’s perfect for people who have tried recipes and thought they could do better. Or those who have sampled restaurant cooking and found a favorite they’d like to share. If cooking is your passion, blogging about it is a wonderful way to get more information out there about this interest. It’s also a great way to tell others about new products available in the world of cooking.

A recipe blog can also offer the opportunity for an entrepreneur to build a home based business. How? By offering for sale cooking products, popular recipes, recipe eBooks and other tools that the budding chefs of the world would like. In this way, a blogger can build a nice residual income to support their cooking habit.

Popular blogs that earn a substantial amount of website traffic can earn even more revenue. Through the power of using web traffic tracking tools, a blogger can earn ad revenue or earn commissions by recommending product from other companies. Successful bloggers can even sell their blogs to others and earn an income from developing popular topics into highly trafficked websites.

With a little bit of time and a lot of creativity, a recipe blogger can create an income working from home.

As a Baby Boomer, I’ve collected and tweeked quite a few family recipes over the years.  Check out my Recipe BlogHERE for all the recipes I share!

  6. Having had a number of blogs over the years in other niches, and having a food/recipe blog now, I would agree with most of that. Except it really takes a lot of time consuming networking to build that traffic needed to start making a decent income.

    But you are right. It’s a great way to make money from home, but it is time consuming work.
