I just wanted to make a couple quick suggestions. Gone Raw has been getting bigger and bigger, and it’s very important to us that the quality of our recipes stay top notch! While we don’t want to take the fun out of it for anyone – individual expression is very important to us, as well – we want Gone Raw to be the absolute best site on the web for raw, vegan recipes.
So here’s a couple suggestions for posting great recipes:
- Provide a good title and description. When folks search for recipes on the home page, the program looks in the title and description. If your recipe is a cucumber soup, and it has the word “cucumber” in the title or description, people will find it and be happy!
- The “draft mode” is handy. Some people have had problems with the last ingredient, when adding the ingredients to their recipe. This is my fault, and I’m working on a fix for it… but in the mean time, if you initially create your recipe and don’t “publish” it right away, you can take a minute to make sure everything looks right.
- If you’ve got a camera, be sure to take a picture of your recipe. Nothing makes a recipe look more delicious than a good photo!
- Remember: they have to be raw, they have to be vegan, and they have to be recipes.
We really do appreciate all the great recipes and discussions you share with everyone, and we will always be trying to make Gone Raw even better. Thanks!
