10 Things A New Food Blogger Should Know
The decision to start blogging about food should really come from passion and lots of dedication. For those who are about to embark on this journey I would say there are main 10 things you should keep in mind:
1- Your recipes should be ones you have tried and tested and never ones you copy from other sites.
2- Recipes should be simple and easy to follow in sequence.
3- Your credibility is part of your brand reputation, when you write about restaurants make sure you know their quality and can actually vouch for them, one time experiences cannot be the judge for any culinary experience.
4- If you smoke, you probably do not have fresh taste buds and most of your tasting would be of only sharp tastes, while the subtle flavors completely surpass you (My advice quit smoking before you blog about food coz you frankly can’t taste food)
5- If you use ingredients that not many people can find abundantly, put alternatives that do not affect the recipes.
6- You will receive many treats to try out and test, make sure you deliver the actual experience and not feel obliged to say nice stuff just to keep people happy (this follows point 3)
7- You will be known for what you post, take a line of food blogging and stick to it to keep your image clearly unique to your audience.
8- Use your social media platforms to spread your posts to as many people as you can (Don’t forget the hashtags)
9- Keep up with what is new on the world food trends and try to see if you can follow that for the day on your blog or others social media channels
10- When you go to try all that nice food remember, a bite of the right dish is better than a pile of a dish not worth it, don’t feel obliged to finish your plates when you are tasting you can even ask for a sampling portion which would keep your figure and taste palate entertained!
