Everyone has their own reason for a blog... and it ought to include enjoying what you are doing.  Also every home has a kitchen and people cook in them and a good recipe can be of interest and help to people. We used to have a recipe at least once a week on Facebook. Something happened and we missed a couple of weeks... we actually got people asking where are the recipes??? 

Blogs are for people- People eat- Post recipes if you like- Its all GOOD!!!

I've enjoyed reading many of them, although I've never tried to cook them. That would take making a list of ingredients, going to the store, picking up specific stuff, actually cooking it, then trying to make those near and dear to me eat it. And therein lies the rub. People I know cook a lot better than I do and that's my second excuse to seldom cook anything original. Sad, eh?

I don't mind. I remember when an agent in my old office mailed out recipe post cards every month. There were times when people would call the office and say " I didn't get my recipe card this month. Are you still mailing them out?" It was just one way for agents to keep in touch with homeowners even if they weren't ready to buy or sell.

I do like Will Hamm-he's a nice guy with good posts, so at the risk of offending him; if it was 1970, I'd say maybe? But, then there'd be no blogs if it were 1970.

It's not a good image for Realtor, they come to us for the largest purchase or sale of their lives, not how to make chocolate cake.

To each their own though, my competition is welcome to do all those goofy things

It is a violation of the AR guidelines but so are other things and they all seem to get points. I think the majority are cut and paste from national sites which is a possible copyright violation. How hard is it to write it in your own words? I like a good new recipe.

I don't see the point of recipe blogs as they have nothing to do with real estate.  Same for post card recipe mailers.  They're not original or very creative.

However, blog and write about whatever makes you happy Roy.

I think it is frequently used as filler to try and get points.  If it is something really cool, I like to see photos of the meal with the recipe and maybe a sentence or two about why you made it.  Not as a regular thing though.
