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 from around the web. When a user saves a recipe from your blog, then a copy of the recipe is added into 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.
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 in full, or copies and pastes it into a file, the reader can easily return to your blog again and again to find new recipes.
Users can choose to share their recipes with the public Copy Me That Community board. 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.
We are also ramping up efforts to showcase more recipes, helping to drive traffic back to the bloggers. This could include features on the most popular recipes, seasonal recipes, what’s cooking this week, etc. We’ve been very focused on the internals of the site, such as the meal planner and the shopping list, but are getting a lot of requests from our users to do more with the Community!
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. From time to time, a user may include a favorite recipe from a blogger. Even if that happens, then the blogger’s image from the recipe will not be transferred to the printed book. Only images that have been uploaded from someone's personal computer can be added to a cookbook. As with any printing service, someone could upload a photo that doesn't belong to them. However, these are personal cookbooks, and the images are usually photographs of family and friends. Additionally, it is not possible to add a recipe to a cookbook unless the recipe has been edited.
I’d rather not have my recipes shared on Copy Me That. What can I do?
