How do I edit or delete a blog post?

It’s really easy! Here’s how you do both:

  • Edit your post.
    1. Go to My Allrecipes by clicking on the My Allrecipes menu on the top right side of the page.
    2. Click on Add/Edit Blog Post.
    3. You will see a list of your existing blog posts. Find the post you want to edit, and click the word edit next to the date your post was originally written. (You can also find the edit link on any blog post you’ve written on the site).
    4. You will see the write or edit a blog post page with your existing text. Edit away! Hit the Save Changes button to make your changes show up on the site.
  • Delete your post.
    If you would like to delete a post, go to your blog list page as indicated above or navigate to the individual post you want to delete. Click the link that says delete post next to the headline.

A little heads-up... when you’re no longer an Allrecipes Pro, your blog will still be viewable but you won’t be able to edit any of your posts. However, you will always be able to delete a post regardless of your membership status.

I’m not an Allrecipes Pro anymore. What happens to my blog?

Unfortunately, once your Allrecipes Pro term has expired you can no longer create or edit blog posts. However, posts will still be live on Allrecipes where other members can continue to read and comment. And you will always have the ability to delete posts and comments, as well as ban members from commenting on your blog posts.
