1.Post fantastic recipes only
When you start a recipe or cooking blog the idea is to start off with fantastic recipes like making Italian meringue. In this way people find your blog and right away are interested because you offer recipes that they cannot find elsewhere. You want to stand out from the rest right away and have people take notice and tell their friends about your blog.
Start by posting something new or unusual on your blog. Include recipes that are original and not the same as everyone else has online. Add some outstanding photos so that others will pass the word on and say, “Go to that blog, it has something no one else does”. So always keep on the lookout for something authentic you can write about and make a list of recipes that you know or have been passed on in your family. It will make all the difference.
3.Don’t give up
When it comes to blogging everyone sometimes tries and fails. So if something doesn’t work change it and try something else. Make a note of what works well and what doesn’t. The only thing you must not ever do is to give up.
4.Post original content
The content you post on your blog site must be original and not copied from anywhere else. If you want to write about a recipe or cuisine and find information online make that information your own with your own unique writing style. You do not want to take anything that does not belong to you so make sure your content is always original and unique and not found anywhere else on the Internet. Develop your own kind of flair for writing.
5.Show your personality!
Show everyone that you have your own kind of flair and style. Let them see your personality through your blog. Start connecting with people who like what you like. So if you love avocado on toast respond with enthusiasm to those who also do. In this way people will learn that you are open, honest, and friendly and will be glad to always read your blog.
6.Make friends and help each other
As more people start reading your blog and you get more follower start making friends. You will be sharing your love of food with others so find out what kind of blogs they have. Then start following their blogs and leave your thoughtful comments for them and they in turn will do the same for you. With time you can chat with them on the social media sites and promote their content as they promote yours. It is a winning situation all around.

8.Keep your site design clean and easy to navigate
