Tips for Creating an Awesome Food Blog

Tips for Creating an Awesome Food Blog

If you are a foodie who loves to share your love of food with the world, you may want to consider creating your own food blog. By doing this, you can share information about food, recipes, content from other foodies, and a whole lot more. But, there is a lot more to creating a blog than just writing an article and posting it. Here are some tips that will help you to create an awesome food blog.

1. Time Management

One of the first things to think about is time management. You need to create a specific calendar for your blogs, and stick to that calendar. Make a list of each thing you need to do in order to achieve this goal, and don’t sit down to blog without a specific plan in place.

2. Connect with other Bloggers

Start networking with other bloggers who share your interest in food. Leave comments on their blogs, start chatting them up on social media, promote their content on your own blog and place a couple of guest posts on their sites.

3. Make Following Your Blog Easy

Make sure that your blog contains links to RSS (Rich Site Summary)/email subscriptions, as well as to all of your social media networks. These links should be displayed prominently so they get noticed.

4. Make Commenting Easy

Don’t make your readers jump through hoops in order to leave comments on your blog. Let them know that you appreciate their input, and respond to each comment to generate conversations.

5. Promote on Social Media

These days, if you are not using social media to promote blogs (and just about anything else), you are missing out on reaching a huge audience. Make sure to use all of the tools at your disposal to promote yourself on social media, including:

6. Make Content Sharing Easy

Content sharing is free promotion, so make it easy for your readers to share your content. Give them sharing buttons for social media at the end of every post, and thank them for sharing your posts.

7. Use the Right Font

Fonts should be easy to read, so make them clear and large. People don’t want to have to squint while reading posts. Use common fonts, such as Arial or Georgia, and make sure that the color is not too faint.

8. Create a Recipe Index

If you are sharing recipes, make sure that you give your readers a recipe index so they can easily find their favorite recipes on your blog. This will let them find past recipes and post archives quickly and easily, and you can split up the index into various categories.

9. Take Great Food Photos

People want to see what various dishes look like, but they won’t be appetized if you are offering up bad food photos. The photo should make the food look mouth-watering. Learn to take great food photos so people will be even more interested in your posts.

10. Build a WordPress Blog

It is a good idea to create a self-hosted WordPress blog that gives you total control over the design and content, and allows you to grow. If you do not know how to do this, find someone who can do it for you.

11. Understand SEO

Search engine optimization is important, and you need to understand how to use it to your advantage. At the very least, you need to know the basics of SEO in order to really get the most out of your blog. SEO makes it easy to find your work online, and the easier it is, the more people are going to see it and start following you.
