You’ve got a good idea @DeaIrby
I checked out your blog. Glad you added pictures – enticed me to read on. Like the premise of using often-use ingredients. And in the posts I scanned through, you were creating new recipes out of leftovers (something I do too). You’ve got an opt-in for subscribers (good) and share buttons for Social Media at the end of each post (good).
In your Pantry Raid #5 up top, the pic you used is great – very inviting – but I’d suggest just a little smaller because the text on the side runs down quite a ways and athough I’m not sure why, I didn’t like reading down so far.
Many of the top bloggers suggest using bullet points because the eye is drawn to those short bursts of text and that would work great for the ingredients of the recipes.
I see you are using Wordpress.com. I had a blog (and still do) on Wordpress.com but in 2 years, hardly anyone found it. Why? Because your URL is http:/thebaronyork.wordpress.com. Google and other Search Engines seem to have a great deal of trouble finding Wordpress.com blogs. When I downloaded Wordpress.org onto my domain, it found my blog and site in 2 days!
Just my thoughts…
