The best blogs usually have a theme, this is called a niche. It’s a specific area of interest that the blogger writes about. The niche here at Genesis Blogging is well… blogging and social media – specifically I write for beginner bloggers and beginners to social media.
There are blogs for just about any niche you can think of – truly, there are some really bizarre things people blog about; their hobbies, family, sports, business and of course, there’s the food blogs. In addition to the myriad of food blogs of every type you can imagine, there are, of course, the multiple cooking shows on TV – and now, coming out this Friday (August 7, 2009) is the movie Julie and Julia about what else: cooking and blogging! To say that cooking and blogging are both hot right now is an understatement!
So what’s my point? My point is that if you love to cook, or eat (I would fall into the latter category)… well, basically if you’re breathing – you need food. But if you’re one of those ‘foodies’, you know who you are: those special folks who truly enjoy food, who enjoy being in the kitchen cooking, you’re one of the ones who will be standing in line waiting for Julie and Julia to open on Friday because well… it’s about Julia Child for goodness sakes! Then perhaps you should take your love of food to the world wide web and share your food experiences with the world too, just as Julie did in the movie.
Okay, so you don’t have to cook your way through a cookbook if you don’t want to; or at least you don’t have to all by yourself, there are actually groups of others who do this online, together. Did you know that?! Yep, Tuesdays With Dorie is a lovely group who do this; but you need a blog to join.
Don’t have a blog?
I can help with that. If you do not have a blog, and need help on how to start a blog, try my Beginner to Blogger in 4 Weeks eCourse. I can help you get your blog up and running so you can get started blogging too.
Once you have a blog online, blog about your love of food. Blog about what you’re cooking that day, or what restaurant you went to and review their food. You could become an affiliate for cookware, cookbooks or write your own cookbook and sell it from your blog.
The possibilities are endless whether you want to blog just for the enjoyment of sharing your love and experience of food and/or to also earn some money via your blog as well. You just need to get a blog online and start blogging!
My Favorite Food Blogs
Even though I enjoy eating more than I love cooking, I do of course, cook. I’ve not yet sent anyone to the hospital with my cooking, so hey – that’s something, right?! But like most people, I do enjoy finding good recipes and what better way to find good recipes than from good food blogs.
So here are a few of my favorite food blogs. Visit these blogs, click to subscribe to their RSS and I know soon you’ll enjoy them too.
