Start A Food Blog For Your Food BizPosted by Nicole
Food blogs are some of the most popular blogs in existence. From food lovers wanting to share their latest culinary adventures to entrepreneurs whose businesses are built on the freshest tastes in town, anyone can quickly start up a food blog.
Want to start a food blog that stands apart? Read on for some tips to get yours off to a tantalizing start.
- Learn To Take Amazing Pictures Of Food
Your readers want to see vivid, up close images of every food item you describe in your blog. Learn about how the elements of design — colour, shape, texture, line — work together to make compelling compositions, and always, always photograph only the freshest ingredients.

- Make Your Food Blog Spicy With Variety
Want to keep readers coming back for more? Shake things up with a wide variety of posts — recipes, slideshows, “how to” videos. A food blog has the potential to be so much more than text and images. Find creative ways to feature food, remembering that video is highly shareable (in fact, an April 2012 study by ZuumSocial showed that video is the most shared type of content on Facebook).
- Update Your Food Blog Often
This is an important rule of thumb for any kind of blog, but it bears repeating: the more frequently you update, the more relevant your blog will continue to be in the eyes of your audience and the search engines. Aim to post consistently, and keep each post as exciting, entertaining and engaging as your last. You’ll enjoy a growing readership to your blog, and more paying customers at your establishment.
