Many guest post food blog bloggers are looking for new ways to spice up their blogs with content that is informative, but also well-crafted and enticing. It may seem easy enough to simply write about an ingredient or cooking technique, but there are more creative opportunities waiting for you if you’re willing to put in the time and effort!
This post will explore five different types of posts that can provide a unique perspective on your blog’s content.
1. Recipe Round-Up
This is easily one of the most popular posts on your blog, and you’ll notice that it has lots of traffic. So pick a descriptive name and title for this post, adding keywords to your title tag, writing a catchy description to give readers an idea of what they will find when they click through the post.
The goal here is to bring different types of recipes together in a way that gives readers the ability to put their own spin on them, or choose only certain recipes because they appeal more than others.
2. No-Bake Recipes
A similar idea to the recipe round-up, but in this case, you’ll be sharing recipes that don’t require any cooking! And don’t worry, it is possible to create delicious food that doesn’t include any actual cooking, because the best ingredients can be turned into other things with different textures and flavors.
One example of this type of content can be found on Dana Gardner ‘s blog Pinch of Yum , and her top three posts for 2015 were no-bake recipes. Gardner shares the kinds of recipes that people love to look at, without all the fuss involved in actually making them.
3. Breakfast Round-Up
It is no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it can be overwhelming to decide what kind of food will be best for you in the morning. So why not compile a list of different kinds of breakfast recipes that you can get your hands on? And unlike the recipe round-up, this one doesn’t have to just include recipes!
This post can include ideas for what meals to order at restaurants, as well as things people want to eat for breakfast when they are eating out. There are many ways that you can expand on the content of this post, but it also has the potential for a lot of traffic for your blog.
4. Best X
This type of post can be very time-consuming, but it will certainly take your food blogging to the next level if you decide to go through with it. In this case, pick a specific ingredient or technique for your best, and create an in-depth list of recipes that feature this item, as well as other culinary ideas that don’t include the item but use others that do.
5. Cooking Gift Guide
People love to receive cookbooks and kitchen gadgets as gifts (particularly young students who want to make a good impression on their roommates). But it’s also hard to navigate through the different stores and sites that sell these items in order to find the best one for you.
This post will require going through all of the different options, highlighting not only the pros but also the cons, and explaining what problems each item might solve for someone who is looking to purchase a gift for yourself or someone else.
