The Long Road to being a Successful Food Blogger - Page 2
To be successful you need to post regularly, two to three articles a week. Regularly postings will help build a fallowing. Typically a new blogger spends too much time tweaking their design and fiddling with plugins instead of writing.
Articles or posts need to leap off the page, before the second sentence, while being visually tantalizing. Having a recipe with directions and a picture or two by no means is what the internet audience wants. There are over 500,000 blogs published on the Internet. Unfortunately you cannot major in blogging, it is a self taught learning experience, start with a picture, interests are sparked with a good photo and label the picture with a catchy name.
The psychological nature the internet audience starves to be entertained, which means you need to develop pictures with stories. The stories are ones that come from your life experiences, try to add your personality with your life without it becoming the entire story, remember your trying to showcase the food!
Alright now you have a recipe, hopefully tested (generally i test my recipe six to seven times), a eye popping photo and your triple proof read story. Guess what? You're are not finished. Now you need a short link; another title for the search engines and meta tags. I fell into SEO and metag pit in the beginning and added every word I thought pertaining to the recipe. The optimum use is a few good words, for example using the picture above, mousse, raspberry, cake, bobbiesbakingblog and the short link title is raspberrymoussecake. Remember it is the writing your audience wants.
The very best advice I can give is to have fun, remember to enjoy yourself, keep your content focused on your blogging topic. Try to stay away from copying a more successful blogger If you believe in your article so will your audience.
