Getting paid to eat pierogis…it’s the ultimate dream, right?
Who wouldn’t want to make the big bucks and be an amateur foodie?
Thanks to the internet, anybody can launch a food blog. In fact, top food bloggers earn anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars per month. They get to travel, explore cultural cuisines, try new tastes (like our brand-new honey siracha chicken), and document the whole experience in photos and words. All while being sponsored to do so.
If rolling in the dough (yep, that’s a pierogi pun!) while eating delicious food appeals to you, read on. Loaded Pierogi has a step-by-step guide on how to get started as a food blogger in 2022.
The #getloaded Guide on Food Blogging 101
Here at Loaded Pierogi, we are food bloggers too.
Afterall, you are reading our website’s blog right now and probably drooling over all the yummy menu options. From Bacon, Sauerkraut & “Oh Yeah” Bacon to Buffalo Chicken and everything in between, there’s no limit to your pierogi blogging potential.
So hopefully, you’re also feeling inspired by the endless possibilities!
To get started with your own food blog, here’s what to do:
- Choose a Food Blog Name and Niche
Spend 10 minutes brainstorming fun blog names. For example, you could incorporate your own name into the blog title, or use a funny nickname, the name of where you live, a play on words, etc.
Next, pick your “niche.” This will be your area of expertise. Love spicy food recipes? Or chocolatey desserts? The Loaded Pierogi niche is pierogis – obviously – but yours could be anything. The sky is the limit.
- Set up a Blogging Platform
Secondly, think about where / how you will reach an audience. Social media pages such as Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook are great traffic tools for beginners. Publish your blog posts on platforms like WordPress, Wix, and Medium and use keywords to rank on Google.
- Eat, Eat, Eat!
Now, the best part…
Finally, you are ready to get eating! Make a list of 5 different restaurants or meals you want to try (hint: why not try Loaded Pierogi?).
Grab your phone, take some awesome photos and videos, and write notes on the experience, atmosphere, aroma, flavor, taste, and so on. Then, upload your content. Be sure to use #hashtags and links so people can find your foodie page.
With consistent effort, an audience will grow as more and more hungry folks begin to follow your account. And soon, food businesses might even start reaching out to YOU for paid or sponsored content.
Who knew eating could be so cool?
