CaL Badge Network

Page updated on 29th May 2017

The Chef at Large group on Facebook sends out about 50,000 visitors a day, to links posted on its wall. If you would like to share your blog’s links on the Chef at Large wall, it is now mandatory to install the CaL Badge (250 x 250 px) on your blog’s sidebar (not footer), as high as possible, and certainly not at the end. Chef at Large will display various articles, aspects and activities related to Chef at Large and its associates in the badge space and in exchange for this, will allow you to post your blog’s links on the CaL Group. Please check with the mods (via email) to confirm your blog is in the whitelist, else your account may be banned.

In order to do so, all you need to do is write to CaL Support at [email protected], share your name, email address, blog name and URL. You will then receive information including code to be inserted into a text widget into your sidebar, ensuring it is as high up the list (no footers please!) as possible. That’s it! Try one, if that doesn’t work as desired (depends on your site etc.), try the other.

Please note, blogs hosted on WordPress.com may be unable to use the badge code. If so, please do not post your blog’s link to the group.

If you’re sharing a link to your own blog, please ensure it displays the CaL Badge. The sharing of YouTube channels or videos, by the owners, is not allowed at this time.

Hosting

Blogs, as with all growing entities, reach a point where you’ll want to consider options other than free blog hosting or even shared hosting. This usually happens when your traffic increases or the facilities (software) you extend to your visitors becomes more elaborate.

We host Chef at Large at WPOven, where we’re very happy with the prompt support, stable performance and otherwise too in general. If you’re looking to host your WordPress blog, we recommend WPOven, where prices begin at $20 per month.

Blog Whitelist

Only blogs that are on the white-list below may post (shortened) links to the group. Please use the table below to see if your blog is on the white-list.

The whitelist has two levels – 1 & 2. Group 1 includes blogs who have correctly implemented the code as well as placed the CaL Badge in a prominent position. These blogs will be actively promoted across the CaL Badge Network. Group 2 are those blogs who have correctly implemented the code and placed the badge in an acceptable position. Getting into group 2 means staying there for a few months, until the entire list is refreshed.

Only those blogs mentioned above are allowed to share shortened links here, though we understand the message hasn’t reached everyone, given that they -were- whitelisted earlier and may incorrectly assume that that status continues.

Please note, even if you were whitelisted earlier (without the unique code), this time we’re using unique codes for your individual blog and your previous effort needs to be repeated once more. :)

If your blog is in the whitelist below, you’re fine and can start posting and sharing on CaL.

If you have received the code but are unable to implement it, please speak with others who have done so successfully. The code we’re sharing is identical; it is the blogs and their configurations which differ. We are unfortunately unable to help with this.
