Food blogs are all the rage, whether you’re a chef or you cook at home, cuisine is a big market. So having a perfect theme that is built specifically for food blogging is incredibly important.
Ad-Sense is a powerful magazine theme, I think you’re going to dig it. It’s got a ton of various options that make it easy to blog about whatever you want and to monetize your site with Ad-Sense or the advertising network of your choice. This is the recipe blog example, but there are several others that are just as great looking and just as powerful. Some of the best features about this theme that make it the most powerful Ad-Sense ready theme around, awesome ad management, advanced advertising placement, ad blocker detection and content locking for readers who are using an ad blocker. That means everyone will see your advertising, no matter what. For recipe bloggers, that makes a lot of sense. MyThemeShop offers great support and documentation to all of their themes, so you won’t get bogged down trying to solve some minor technical problem.
