Who Knew? You Can Get Paid to Write (and Test) Recipes

Quick — where do recipes come from?

Like me, you may have thought that they just magically appear in a book. The cookbook writer (chef or foodie) camps out in his/ her kitchen for months on end, brainstorming and phoning for ingredients to be delivered… dirty dishes are stacked to the ceiling, and the dishwasher hums 24 hours a day.

No so. It turns out recipes are written and tested by writers.

Denise Vivaldo: The Making of the Infamous Kwanzaa Cake says:

“I sell recipes from $100-$400 dollars apiece plus the cost of groceries. I love it. Not only is it fun, creative and challenging, I get to study all kinds of food. Most projects are just plain terrific. I’m humbled by the amazing people I’ve gotten to write and work for.”

I think I missed my calling. If you love to cook (or just love to eat) and write, it may be the freelance writing career of your dreams.

If you’re looking for writing gigs, you’ll have seen that many businesses advertise for bloggers. Unfortunately, the businesses which advertise are all doing so because they’re looking for cheap content.

You can do much better.

You can find clients who don’t advertise, but who pay well for blogging. Did you know that experienced professional bloggers charge their clients a minimum of $1000 per month, per blog? Consider that if a blogger’s working for 20 clients, that’s $20,000 a month.

You can blog for businesses too, if you’re prepared. Discover how, with Blogging Ace: Make Six Figures in Nine Months by Doing What You Love.
