Before you can become a prominent blogger in the food niche, you will have to learn the tricks of the trade. Learning how to blog well is just like any other skill at first it will seem difficult but after practice, you will become a master.
There are several mistakes that newbie bloggers make when the start blogging. In this post today, I will tell you about the most common mistakes that new bloggers make if you have done some or most of the mistakes don’t worry it is never too late to learn how to do a thing correctly.
So without further ado let’s get started with the most common mistakes that new bloggers make when they enter the flute food blogging.
They ignore the technicalities of blogging
Most of the food bloggers are from the non-technical background they do not understand that without understanding the technicalities of the tools used in blogging they won’t be able to create a blog that matters.
So if you are a new blogger, you should first learn how websites work, how web servers work, how word press works and how you can customise your blog so that it stands out in the crowd. Now surely this is something entirely optional for a person who has money to invest. There are several freelancer website from where you can hire people to do all this stuff for you.
They do not realise that food blogging is very competitive
If you think that you are the only person who is enthusiastic about food and presentation of food, then you are clearly mistaken.
There are over million blogs are created every single month and nearly 40% of those blog about food in some way or the other.
Yes, even Lifestyle blogs cover food so it is important that if you want to create a mark for yourself in the blogging niche, you do something that other people are not doing.
If you will write the same thing that other people have written about earlier, you will not be able to distinguish yourself from the crowd and will fizzle out before your hosting expires. So find that unique perspective to your writing and express that.
Building a blog and writing content don’t necessarily drive traffic
It sometimes amazes me that bloggers feel that if they build an attractive looking blog and write content on it people will come automatically come.
This is not how things work! Yes, maybe in the past you could add a lot of keywords in your post and rank on Google but today is different, Google is not looking at the amount of keywords in your blog post, it is ranking websites on the basis of trust that it has over the web.
So, to drive traffic to your blog you either have to acquire links from several top bloggers in the food niche or you have to become a social celebrity.
Today becoming a social star is not that difficult all you have to have is have a flair for presentation.
Once you get that you can start publishing pictures of your food on social networking websites Facebook Twitter Pinterest and see people engage with your content.
