How to become a food blogger?
Tips by Mario Prisciandaro of Lake Mary
I've been in the industry for the past ten years and have seen many
individuals, especially youngsters, working on a food blog. While it may
sound fun and creative, but in reality, the food blogging business is more
than just eating.
You need to have the following skills to become a successful food blogger:
Extraordinary food vocabulary
Fluent and humorous communication skills
The will to travel to faraway locations
Commitment to exercise and stay healthy
If you think you have the talent to be a food blogger, sharpen your
blogging skills with the following tips:
Only Post Original Content
Foodies love original content because they recognize it as more trustable.
They know you cannot review a dish accurately unless your yourself have
Use Sensory Words
This is the reason why I consider food vocabulary a necessary skill in this
business. You need to describe the presentation, taste, texture, and smell very
often while uploading your blog. You will never find a Mario Prisciandaro food
blog without sensory words.
People follow food bloggers because they want to get regular updates on
food. Not uploading something new every day or twice a day in food
blogging is like dropping an axe on your own feet.
Never Sell Out
If you sell out once, there's no turning back. Restaurants will always try to
buy your reviews, but you know you have to be authentic to stay long in
the food blogging niche.
Show How the Food is Cooked
Apart from food, foodies also like to see how their food is being cooked.
Although, not in your every blog, but in some blogs you can upload the
chef cooking the food. It makes you look more reliable.
Learn To Take Amazing Photos
The photos that you take should look apetizing. They should be tempting
enough to make your readers drool. You can learn to take such pictures
by practicing to click shots from different angles.
