What advantages/benefits will I get from joining The Recipe Room?

By writing your blog as part of The Recipe Room you will start to form part of a community of blogs related to the world of gastronomy where you will be able to get in touch with professionals and other foodies and exchange opinions, tips, advice and experiences. Additionally, by forming part of The Recipe Room you could be in with the chance of gaining our Badges and winning prizes for your work.

What are Badges?

Badges are awards that recognise the number of hits your blog receives, the number of blog entries you have, the popularity of your blog (the most shared and commented-on blogs gain recognition), as well as the total of any other Badges you have. When you receive a badge, your blog will standout from the rest as it represents an achievement for the effort and work that has gone into creating the blog itself.

Currently the levels of Badges that we have are:

  • Dishwasher: As a beginner to our online cooking community, you will automatically start at this category. But do not worry, little by litte you will be able to progress to the next level (Kitchen Assistant) thanks to your posts.
  • Assistant: One step up from dishwasher, you have become a kitchen assistant. It is a higher level which means you are beginning to show greater knowledge and ability, not only in the kitchen but also within our online community. You are going from strength to strength in the world of cuisine blogging.
  • Cook: You have progressed to being a cook. You gather interesting ingredients and create recipes to perfection, and at the same time you have become an important part of our community and create posts that are generally very popular. But still you have the final hurdle to jump. You are only one step away from being the chef of the kitchen.
  • Chef: Congratulations! You have achieved the highest level. Now you are a cooking expert, and what’s more you have become indispensable to The Recipe Room. You now start to have a considerable recognition within our community and you now have the privilege of choosing your rewards.

Our team is currently working on developing new and different Badges that reward the effort and work of our bloggers.

What prizes can I win?

Apart from our Badges, the bloggers who are registered as part of The Recipe Room all have the opportunity to win various prizes, some in the shape of free meals, cookery products or trips and other ‘virtual’ prizes such as acknowledgement for the work that has been produced and peer and user assessments.

How will my work be recognised?

Your work will mainly be recognised according to the number of visits that your blog gets, alongside any comments that readers and other users post on your blog and the number of blog entries you upload per month. Good blogs will quickly gain popularity and allow you to reap the rewards.
