Frequently Asked Questions about How to Become a Food Writer

How should I start writing?

It is key to know what area you want to specialise in. Once you’ve done this, it is important to keep your website updated with relevant and topical articles, reviews and updates. Creating a content strategy to help organise yourself is a good place to start.

Research is incredibly important, so make sure you are keeping up to date on trends, news and popular search terms when choosing your article topics, choosing which restaurant to review or location to travel too. By keeping your website populated and updated, you will be able to grow your online visibility.

How do I get my articles noticed?

It is best to be authentic and show your readers your personality. If your audience can see more of you and your brand, they can begin to relate and trust you, therefore becoming more likely to engage with you. More engagement means more likes and shares, increasing the reach of your food blog.

It is important to generate interesting content that your readers can easily digest and interact with. Conducting research into popular and trending topics is a good place to start. Covering content people want to see whilst making your blogs unique is difficult, particularly in the competitive food blogging space. Nonetheless, it is a great way to get your writing noticed.

How do I promote my work?

As with any articles, be that online or print, social media can be your best friend. By creating a page on your chosen platforms that represents your brand and tone effectively, you will begin to build a larger online presence and following. Other options such as advertising and guest posting online are also perfect opportunities to push your online presence and share your work.
