  1. Just saw your Food by Nature page on Facebook, I noticed you have invited all foodies to share recipes but you have asked not to give a link to blogs now I too have a food blog, I would like to join your group, but it wouldn't be much fun if I do not share my recipes but it is quite tiresome to type out the entire recipe all over again, would you please allow a link to the blog. In the mean while please visit my blog It Is Tasty Ma

  2. hi shilpi. foodie by nature is receiving complaints regd that too many blog links are posted and readers dont wish to access them. however if a recipe is posted with its pic and thge blog link only at the complete end,readers get attracted to access it. you dont have to retype. you just have to copy and paste a single recipe and add your blog link only at the end. the format looks better and bloggers are getting more traffic. thanks
