The Delectable Garden is now on Yummly
I’m really excited to announce that The Delectable Garden now has a page on Yummly.
When starting my blog back in June (2017) I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. I thought I’d just share a couple of nice recipes that were inspired by my new garden. 5000 visitors and 9000 views later it has achieved more success in the first six months than I thought it would in a lifetime.
A huge part of the success has been thanks to all of you who have read, shared and commented on my website as well as on my Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram accounts. I am truly grateful to all who have taken the time to share and try my recipes.
Promoting my recipes on Photograzing sites such as Foodyub, Foodista, Foodgawker and Fridgg also helped increase traffic to my blog and share my recipes with thousands of people across the globe. Being recognised as Foodista Food blog of the day (Shredded Ginger Chicken Curry) and Drink blog of the day (Orange and Bay Infused Gin) were massive achievements that I am particularly proud of.
Photograzing sites are excellent for inspiration on all things food related. Bloggers upload photos of their delicious creations and you can click through to their website for the full recipe.
The latest site I have discovered is Yummly. Yummly is different to others in that it allows users to collate their favourite recipes in self titled collections, like a virtual recipe box. I’ve started to build The Delectable Garden page and collections of my favourite recipes from different websites. You can now click on the Yummly button at the bottom of each of my recipes to add them straight into your own collections.
At first it was a bit mind-blowing immersing myself in the virtual world and food blogging community. I’m slowly getting my head around it and learning with every post. My journey has helped me understand how people can become obsessed with social media and the instant gratification available. I felt like I was starting to lose my way and kept thinking about bigger and better things to post. Luckily I realised quite fast and remind myself why I do it. I love growing my own food, experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my passion. If people get enjoyment from my recipes it’s an added bonus ?
