Culinote Introduces a Fresh Approach to Sharing Recipes, Articles, and Food Blogs - A Step in the Right Direction?
Toronto, Canada, March 06, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- If you’re searching for recipes, ideas of what to cook tonight, or even a restaurant review, chances are that you will be reading a famous food blog. Once viewed as an amateur endeavour, food blogging has gained massive recognition on the web. The top food bloggers get book deals, TV spots, and are invited to fancy dinner parties sponsored by big brands. With all this hype, thousands of new food blogs are created every day. The phenomenon is growing at such a fast pace that the question facing new bloggers is: “how can I build a sustainable reader-base in this crowded space?”
Culinote wants to solve this problem.
Culinote emphasises ease-of-use. It lets the blogger “build” each post with simple drag-n-drop widgets. These widgets include the standard text and image types, but also more food-dedicated ones such as ingredient lists, timers, and step-by-step instructions. The team wants to experiment and create a melting-pot of existing and new bloggers, which facilitates content-sharing and engagement, in a way that no other platform does. To that end Culinote launched a collaborative initiative to open-up the development roadmap to its community. Gil says “this collaboration will let our users participate and define how Culinote will evolve - it’s exciting!” and she continues, “but I know that to take on a project as complex as helping bloggers build an engaged audience, is very challenging. We’re doing our homework, and learning a lot from the other platforms.” The good news is that the team is enthusiastic, and has taken on the challenge. They really want to create something special for the food blogging community. From what it seems, Culinote is one step in the right direction.
