If you are thinking about starting up a food blog, then I wholeheartedly encourage you to do so and wish you all the success in the world with it. In the following post I would like to share some of the tips that I wish I had at my disposal when I started this blog. I would also like to point out that there is no real secret, magical formula to a good blog, on any subject and that it takes a whole lot of hard work, dedication and determination. I am confident that if you follow and utilize the following tips that you will have a successful blog just like the one at www.mikeeatseverything.co.uk.
Keep It Authentic
No-one likes to read a blog written by someone who is clearly not interested in the topic they are writing about. Instead, people want to read blogs by people who are passionate and really love what they do and what they are writing about. Keep in mind that you want to make the blog as authentic as possible, so that when people click through to it they will immediately get the impression that it was written by a human.
Never Give In or Give Up
It is important, for your sanity and confidence at the very least; to keep in mind that trying to increase the numbers of visitors to your blog for is going to take a bit of time and you need to stick at it. Don’t worry, if you do all you are meant to – provide readers with good quality content, work on obtaining strong links and a strong social media presence you will eventually have a very successful food blog.
Always Post Original and Unique Content
You may be aware of the phrase “Content is King”. This definitely applies when it comes to creating a food blog that people are going to want to visit and share posts from and leave comments on. You need to ensure that all the content you produce is your own and completely original, as no-one out there wants to read something that has been just simply been stolen for a more successful blog. While you may mine the net for content and post ideas from time to time, as we all do; the important thing is to completely rewrite and where possible, add your own spin.
Inject Your Own Personality
When it comes to food blogs, the things that are contagious and therefore likely to bring people back for more and encourage them to share links to your site with everyone they know is enthusiasm and personality. The worst thing you can do when creating content for your blog is to make it sound like everything else out there. People enjoy reading blog that really show the writer’s unique personality and spin on things, so don’t be scared to put yourself out there.
Make Friends and Help Them Out
The law of reciprocation is important in the world of blogging. Work hard at building up friendships with other bloggers, particularly those who share common interest and cover similar topics to you and help them out. Once you start leaving meaningful and honest comments on their blogs and share and promote content from their site on social media, they will do the same in return.
