Then at Blissdom 2012 ConAgra sponsored Girl's Night In at Blissdom 12, where they kicked off their Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. To see a big company really trying to make a difference in the world is enlightening.
Now, ConAgra has started a great new site, The Dish, that was specifically designed for bloggers. With 4 main content areas, The Dish has something that appeals to everyone.
Seasonal Spotlight has everything you need to know to prep for that Holiday dinner or summer picnic.
Recipe Resource has top rated recipes that use easy to find ingredients.
You can meet the The Dish experts and contact them with questions or request for your blog in the Ask Our Team area.
And lastly, the First Look, First Taste section is exclusive content for bloggers. All you need is your blog URL to apply, and you will have access to the promotions and product information from ConAgra. This is also a place where you can request product samples and get coupons!
I found a whole article on how to grow fresh herbs on your windowsill that I LOVE! Having most of my herbs dead from the 100 degree temps we've had, I need all the help I can get. On top of all the food-related content and the fun videos from George Duran, I was surprised to find great blogging articles as well. Here is one on how to create a blogging business plan I thought was super useful.
I am very impressed with how ConAgra has reached out to bloggers. It is such a huge demographic that many big companies have yet to fully appreciate. And mercy is ConAgra a big company. I had no idea just how many brands are theirs!
