There are times when no matter how much you love what you blog about, it can be hard to come up with material. Often referred to as writer’s block, you find yourself staring at the computer screen for hours and you just got nothing.
No words, no thoughts. If you are feeling the same right now, we have got you covered. Here are some ideas to inspire your next food post and fend off that writer’s block.
Write a seasonal recipe: Readers are always looking for recipes with fresh ingredients that in season. Provide them with recipe collection to find the best dishes for every time of the year.
Share your favorite food blog sites: We all have inspirations, so why not share them with your readers. We shared our favorite food blogs here.
Review a local bakery/restaurant: So, you visited a new restaurant last night? Why not tell your readers about the experience? This one is worth sharing, especially if your blog has a local bent. If you really enjoyed it, you can take it a step further by interviewing the owner. Did this spark an idea?
Answers to frequently asked questions: You get them all the time: What’s your most popular product? How did you come up with this recipe? How did you get into blogging? Compile a list of all these questions and answer them in your blog post.
Post a video: No writing required! Or maybe just an intro would do. Trust us; video is an awesome way to communicate what you might otherwise type in thousand words. And you don’t need an expensive video camera for this. Simply use your Smartphone to start recording short snippets. This will help keep your audience engaged and put a face to your business. Bonus? Create a You Tube channel and upload it there too! Who knows it might just go viral.
Go a little outside the box: Don’t be afraid to scribble about things besides recipes or kitchen tips. Of course, only if they fit your interests and your readers too! For instance, you could create a guide about how to start a food blog to help other aspiring bloggers. Just like we did it here. Share about your blogging platform, your experience with the hosting services, blog design, and more.
Holiday posts: Holidays are always a popular topic when it comes to blog posts. So, why not create a special recipe for Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, and so many other occasions. There are tons of possible ideas for every holiday and they are very significant especially if you get them out on time!
Round up post: You can never go wrong on this one. It is a post made up of responses from a number of industry experts to a question relevant to their area of expertise. Alternatively, you can also create a recipe round up that you like from their blogs. Apart from being an interesting share for your readers, it’s a great way to reach out to the experts in your niche. But make sure that you do it with proper permissions and credits.
Keeping your blog stocked with great content is sure tough, but it will ensure that you have a steady stream of traffic all year round. Hope these ideas will have your cre
