FAQs for Bloggers
In brief, what’s Copy Me That?
Copy Me That is a recipe manager, shopping list, and meal planner. Copy Me That users can add their own recipes from scratch or they can save recipes that they find around the web. When a user saves a recipe from a website, then a copy of the recipe is added to the user's personal recipe box. From there, the user can refer back to the recipe, add it to their meal planner, copy the recipe’s ingredients directly into their shopping list, and edit any part of the recipe. Copy Me That also has a public Community where users can opt to share their recipes.
What are the benefits to me as a blogger?
We fully understand that the recipes you develop are a professional labor of love that require expertise and time.
Every saved recipe retains the link back to the original recipe webpage. That means that, unlike when one of your readers prints your recipe, screenshots it, or copy-pastes it into a file, the reader can easily return to your website again and again to find new recipes.
Users can choose to share their recipes in the public Copy Me That Community. Visitors and members alike love to use the Community to find new recipes. Our users also share their Community recipe boxes with their family and friends. Shared recipes do not show the directions. Instead, the viewer is directed back to the original site in order to read the directions. This is a great way to drive traffic to your site while introducing your blog to a new audience.
What about cookbook printing?
At Copy Me That, we offer our users the ability to create a personal printed cookbook that includes their favorite recipes. Users can only include recipes that they have added from scratch, and images that they have uploaded themselves. Previously, it was also possible to include recipes (text only) that had been saved from websites, so long as the recipe had been altered.
I’d rather not have my recipes shared on Copy Me That. What can I do?
No worries at all! Please just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove from the Community board any recipes that originally came from your website. We will also make sure that recipes from your website cannot be shared with the Community going forward. You can also submit a DMCA notice. View our DMCA policy here.
