So, if you are in dilemma to create your own food blog or not, let us give you some solid reasons why you should start a food blog.
Share your cooking with the whole world!
Whether you are a home cook, a recipe developer or anyone who loves to cook, a food blog gives you to showcase your recipes with the whole world. It gives your recipes more visibility and permanency. If you want to popularise your cooking in front of a bigger audience, food blogging is the best thing you can do. You would find that people who visit your blog are more encouraging, supportive than the social media and they would love to share your work in their networks popularising it.
But, are the foods blogs are only for recipe sharing? I am a member of so many food groups on Facebook and other social media where I can share a pic of my dish. Why do I need to have a food blog? We are going there in a bit!
Food Blogging can be an amazing platform to share your knowledge about food.
Food Blogging is not just recipe sharing. It’s much more than it. It’s about how creative you can be with your food.
Food is one of the essential things we need to survive. Our food has evolved from meagre things to this stage and it will never stop evolving. Every food item has its own history and digging this history can bring out amazing snippets of information regarding mankind.
If you love to know about your food and share the knowledge with the whole world, food blogs are a great medium for it. It can be about the vegetables you use in your own cuisine, lost recipes from your home, or how to grow seasonal vegetables. Just remember that your knowledge can help someone who has just started.
Food Blogging helps you to be a skilled person.
Yes. Once you start food blogging and getting appreciation form the other parts of the world who don’t know you personally, it kindles a desire in you. The desire to cook and share more things. It challenges to push your limitations as a cook. You learn new techniques, new recipes, develop your own cooking style, try to learn a lot about your native cuisine, know your ingredients and much more.
The skills you learn for your food blog is not restricted to your cooking.
Food blogging comes with two accessories. One is your skill of writing and the other one is the photography skill. While it is not mandatory to be good with both sets of skills, food blogging moulds you to develop them thoroughly. You learn to style your food, take good pictures for your Instagram and write about the food.
Food Blogging helps you to make new friends who understand your passion.
Let’s admit it. Food is a beacon which brings friends and foe together. The food blogging community is absolutely same. Once you are comfortable with what you are doing, building relations and sharing food details come easily to food bloggers.
Food Blogging creates new avenues.
Food blogging is not always about recipe sharing. You do not need to cook to start a food blog. If you love to eat out and share the details of eateries across the continents, you are good to go for a food blog.
If you love to click pictures of ingredients and food, your food blog can be a place where you showcase your portfolio and let people hire you as a food photographer.
If you have good skills to style food, your food blog can be the creative outlet where you show your charisma a food stylist.
Food blogging is more than a hobby. It’s a lucrative career.
