Before we get on to our regularly scheduled programming... and boy do I have some programming for you, I wanted to take a moment to point out the (fairly) new and ever changing content beneath each of my posts. Go ahead... take a look.... I bet you want to :)
Foodielicio.us focuses on food and lifestyle. The 'food engineers', as they have have ever so rightly dubbed themselves, have created a fantastic widget that analyzes each post for cuisine, restaurants, themes, products, stores, etc... then they match that content with your general location (general is great because we all know readership location can vary) and come up with specified advertisements, deals, etc.. that match your content.
The fantastic team at Foodielicio.us contacted me a while back about trying out their fantastic widget. After learning more about it I knew I definitely wanted to give it a try. And it's been great; for both me and my readers.
Also, the team at Foodielicio.us is just great. They are very friendly and prompt in answering emails. It is definitely nice to work with a team that responds to you quickly with the answer you are looking for.
So what's the bottom line?
I have had a great response from my readers about the customized deals and information they find on the Foodielicio.us widget. Best of all... they are customized based on my content, which means it will be of interest to those that read La Pure Mama vs. some random advertisement for an all you can eat beef restaurant (hello, no!)
For me, having the ability to offer yet another helpful avenue of information, etc. to my readers is what is most important.
My goal with this blog has always been to provide a place of 'reference', if you will. Somewhere people can go to learn about cooking simply and deliciously. If I can offer one more way to make it easier for people to do that, why not?
Well, it's free and very simple to install which means no added work for me and I get paid for hosting the advertisements!
That being said, I am not being paid by Foodielicio.us to write this little blurb. I am doing it because I like their service, enjoy their team and have had a positive response from readers and bloggers alike.
It's like nothing else that is out there and I am happy to get the word out there that it is there and definitely benefits you in many ways, whether you are a reader or blogger, or both!
If you have any questions about it you can email the team; click this link and then the 'contact us' button at the top right. As I said, the staff is super helpful and very prompt. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, even if you just want to say hi!
