If you have firmly decided to invest your writing skills in creating an inspiring and mouth mumbling food blog, then its best to do it in a way that can enable your personality to come through. This section will assist you in realizing the importance of tranquility, inspiration, uniqueness, and healthfulness in food blogs, and how to make it very challenging for anyone to replicate.
Find your own unique voice
First thing that you should realize is that it will take a while, may be months or even years, for people to reflect desired attention and admiration. As a writer, you also need some time to discover and practice your own style of writing and photography.
When it comes to food blogs, there are no specific rules to follow; however, every writer is expected to have a consistent identity as it enables them in finding their own unique voice. Great popular recipe blogs have one thing in common that they all carry their own unique personality; indentify and write about things that assist you in finding your area of interest and source of motivation.
Inspiration and etiquettes
People often make mistake of being wrong with their recipe attribution; it not only irritates the food writer, but also readers. Therefore, ethical guidelines are quite essential to follow and must be given priority before start posting.
Always link your food blog posts with your inspiration, even when the recipe and/or other blog content have been reinvented. Apart from being ethical, it generates interests among readers and craves them to read more blog posts. For instance, many successful food blogger writers make recipes 2-3 times, changing certain ingredients every time as per their instincts to give them a personal touch. Such practice really helps them in passing their special instructions and preferences on to their readers.
Be authentic, enthusiastic and interesting
Write about things that you truly love doing; for instance, you can write about interesting components, your personal recipe making experience, or anything that can make the recipe stand out and interesting to read. Your passion, knowledge, and special connection towards particular ingredients (such as avocado, tofu, star anise, etc.) or special type of diet (such as paleo diet, Ketogenic diet, etc) also add values to your blog content and provide authentic reading experience.
Keep it classy; enthusiasm is infectious, so never hesitate to show it. One of the great things about writing a food blog is that it gives you a golden opportunity to interact with people sharing your undying love for your favorite ingredients.
Build emotional connection by telling mesmerizing stories
Food blogs are also great place to share interesting stories that is hard for people to read it through other sources. Maybe you decided to write a post about mug cakes because it is the first thing that you have shared with your first high school crush; maybe it is your mommy’s special recipe to make when you used to feel blue as a child; or anything else. Your story does not need to be necessarily out of the world or epic, but it has to be true and appealing.
Readers adore reading about stories that make them nostalgic and help them to build emotional connection to the recipes. People like connecting with blog owners that can mesmerize them with their stories.
Avoid selling out
Selling out is something that can offset your readers so it is not recommended to do, especially during initial stages. Aligning your blog posts with any food related project or a brand is really not a good fit and that is why it should be avoided.
