So, You Want To Be A Food Blogger?

So, you want to be a food blogger? If you are someone that enjoys eating, making, and talking about
food, then becoming a food blogger may well be for you. But make no mistakes, you will need to put
in a lot of time and effort to build up your blog. 

Here are some tips to help you set up your blog and make it a success. 

Find The Right Platform

The first thing that you need to do is find a platform to host your blog. Setting up a blog site is easy
with sites like Blogger, Wix, Wordpress, and Squarespace. Before you decide which to go for, think
about the functions that you will want from your blog later on down the line. Building a blog is easy,
but migrating it later when you decide that a different platform offers more for you is trickier. 

Think about whether you will want to monetize your site as well as how much control you will want
over your search engine optimization. These things may not be on your radar yet, but as you learn
and grow they will become more relevant. Paying for hosting from a service such as bluehost will
allow you to get a free domain name and access to all of the tools you will need to really push your

Create Content Often

Once your site is up and running, you will need to create content for it on a regular basis. Ideally, you
should be posting a few times a week. Think of a variety of different articles. For example, you may
want to create posts about making your own hershey kiss cookies or compare and contrast a number
of different types of diet.

Avoid posting all of your articles at once. If you end up writing your content back-to-back, use a post
scheduler so that your posts don’t go all up at once. This keeps people coming back each day, rather
than visiting once and then forgetting about you.  

Attracting The Visitors

Great content is what visitors are looking for. But if they don’t know that you exist, then nobody will
come. Make sure that you are getting out there and sharing your posts on social media. Using your
own profile is great, but you may also want to think about creating pages on all of the major social
media sites so that you can build up a following a share your posts along with other relevant posts
your readers may like. 

Search engine optimization is also important. This involves putting relevant keywords in your posts so
that you appear in searches on Google. You should also get your site linked to other sites as much as
possible. One great way of doing this is by providing guest posts on established blogs. 

It may take time to start building up your page views, but once you start achieving good numbers you
can introduce adverts and use affiliate links to start earning money from your site.
