Amid the big announcements last week, one big feature of Common Kitchen got underplayed, and now may be a good time to highlight it.The simple summary is this: if you’re a Common Kitchen user, you can keep a free food blog on the site. Just go to the “My Account” link on the left, and you’ll see a link which says something like, “Create Your Blog.” And there it is. Take a look at mine, for example.The point of these blogs is a bit more complicated. Every recipe on Common Kitchen has a source, whether that’s a cookbook, a magazine, or a website. But anyone who has been cooking for more than a few weeks has at least one recipe kicking around which bears no relation to any published source. How would you put that recipe on Common Kitchen?The answer is: post it on your blog. Now the blog is the source. That’s what I did with my sweet potato fries, for example. As I was writing the post, I checked a box at the bottom of the form which said, “Add this as a recipe to Common Kitchen,” and now the recipe is listed on the site (and quite well rated, as well, since I fed them to Noah and medfordgardener.)There’s nothing stopping you from using your blog to write about other things, like musing on oregano or even non-food-related details. It’s yours, after all. So now that I’ve rambled on, what do you have to say?
