I think it is time for a little blog etiquette refresher course. Most people I encounter are delightful but every once in a while, you run into a bad apple.
Leave comments on new posts. Everyone likes to receive feedback! Leave a comment on an older post if you made and liked the recipe. I know I love hearing that people made and loved the recipes I created! Suggest tips and offer your experiences in a positive way. Ask questions! I get a lot of emails with various questions and am happy to answer any that I can. Ask permission before posting someone else's recipes on your own blog. Ask permission before using someone else's photographs on your own blog. If you are confused by a recipe, email the person and ask for clarification. Make food suggestions. Feel free to email the food blogger if their email is readily accessible on the site. I know I love hearing from readers and have "met" a lot of great people, found a lot of cool sites, and got some new food ideas from emails I was sent.
These are just a few issues I have both enountered myself and heard about recently...any thing I missed?
