108 Food Content Ideas For Your Blog
Losing your ability to create content can happen to you at anytime. Especially to those of you who are unsure of what to write about and how your post will differ from the next person who writes about the same thing. If you run out of words to say, it isn't because you aren't creative, it is because you are looking for the right content to cater to your blog and your blog's niche. 

Whether you are looking to start a new food blog or you are a food enthusiast running out of ideas and cannot find anyway to be inspired, you've come to the right place. Your blog post can be any length; however, if you want it to reach the top of Google, it must be at least 1,200 to 2,000 words. 

Food is essential in life so there are many ways to create content that caters to the subject. With everything from the latest recipe and concoction to even the best places to eat, in a city you recently visited--the possibilities of producing write-ups that accommodate foodies all over the world are endless.

What's Trending

Blogging can be fun, but only if you have the chance to interact and enjoy it. So taking advantage of link-ups is a great way of getting involved. Don't forget to comment on other blogs, as this is the best way to receive both traffic and comments. Most of the time bloggers will return the favor and reciprocate. Skyrocketing your social has so many benefits which will happen if you take a trending topic and write a blog post about it. Always use the tag "food" and hashtag #food with every single one of your posts for more exposure.

Food Is A Part Of Life, As It Is A Part Of Our Culture

A food blog should always be more than recipes. Of course, recipes help you build a loyal following, but to have only recipes on a food blog is much like only talking about makeup on a beauty blog, when there is much more than just makeup. It is also vital to use the appropriate labels and tags to better fit your regularly updated website. Evidently you don't want to tag "French Toast" in with "dinner" as this is a popular breakfast food item. 

21. Describe your ideal menu. What would be the first course, second course, third course, fourth course, etc. 
22. Do an exclusive interview and/or Q&A with someone you respect or admire in the food industry. 
23. (insert cuisine): the best dishes

Food Blog Posts
Some of the best content I have read on the internet is fun food facts. If you do create any articles pertaining to this, it is very crucial to cite your sources.

What Do You Think About Instant Meals?

Reviews are one of the most Googled things on the internet. Did you know that? The best way to review anything food is to review the instant, pre-made foods that you purchase at the grocery store, as many people around the world purchase those. Cookbooks are also a great essential as many people across the world use those on a daily basis. Perhaps with your review, you can create a recipe from the cookbook to compliment your commentary.

Help Foodies Choose Gifts For Their Loved Ones

Gift guides are so important. Especially when writing any content for your blog. There are millions upon millions of internet users who Google and Bing what to purchase for their family, friends, and loved ones because they are clueless as to what to buy them. I know when I first started using the internet, I didn't know what to buy for certain family members and gift guides helped me.

Don't Be Afraid To Embrace The Listicle

It is so important (and I cannot say this enough) to create content that is travel-friendly because believe it or not, there are many people who frequent food blogs just to see what eateries are good and what aren't. There are many review zines that contain fake reviews, so to kind of weed them out Google sets it's algorithm to find only the best quality content around. This means real reviews from real people. And although reviewing one place is a great idea, listicles work good too. Especially in this case. 

61. Top 10 best restaurants in (insert location here)
62. The best restaurant in (insert location here)
63. Why you should eat at (insert place) in (insert location here)

Even If You Don't Eat Keto Or Gluten-Free, You Can Still Talk About It

Words are completely meaningless and irrelevant if you don't have the creative process to back it up. You have every right to choose what you want to say and how you want to say it on your blog, but remember there will be many types of people reading your content. It is crucial to cater to your audience. Even if it means stepping outside of the box a bit.

Vegetarians And Vegans Need Love Too

A lot of people will want to read your blog as long as your blog can relate to them in some way. It is very crucial to cater to those who are vegetarian and vegan. As a vegetarian, if I look at your blog and notice not a single plant-based article, I will click off immediately without flinching.

When All Else Fails, Talk About Food On The Tube

Food Content Ideas
YouTube is one of the most visited websites on the world wide web. It is also owned and operated by Google, which means the moment you start talking about it, the more traffic you will receive to your blog. Don't be afraid to write something controversial, as you are entitled to freedom of speech.

Some Food For Thought

As technology continues to evolve, so does the demand for those of us wanting to learn more about it. There are many people who don't know which apps to download nor do they know what social networking apps will help them grow. As you continue to learn, you can also educate your audience including other aspiring bloggers on what are the best and what are the worst on the world wide web.

101. What is your favorite food app? Why is it your favorite?
102. 10 amazing apps as good as Pinterest to share recipes.
103. The best food blogger I discovered recently. Why are they the best?
104. What are your favorite food blogs on the internet? Why are they are your favorite?
105. Why (insert app here) is the best app for food lovers.
106. Why I love (insert food app)/Why I hate (insert food app)
107. Share your Pinterest recipe success and/or failure. Explain more.
108. The best Pinterest recipes. The worst Pinterest recipes.

Remember that there are many meanings for the word "best" so it is important to utilize them to create original and compelling content. Best also means "greatest" too. A quick Google search of the definition will bring you to a list of synonyms which you can use in place of the word. You can also do this with every word you decide to use. 

Keywords That Define Your Content

Keywords are important and really serve as a guide to helping others find your content. If you want people to find your content, it is extremely important to use a platform that helps them find it. Virtually every single, generic term associated with food has a heavy search volume and high competition; however, when it comes to the Google search engine, the term "foodie" has a very strong volume and low competition. This is why you should always use this word in your posts when talking about food. Pay attention to the related search term results too. Some great places to find keywords include Keyword ToolUbersuggest, Google Keyword Planner, Word Stream, and Semrush

Remember Your Audience 

Your audience is what makes your blog important. It is so important to remember that your subscribers are important. Create polls and utilize them in your daily and monthly emails to see what kind of content you should produce next. You don't have to make writing so much work, but if you want to be successful it is important to cater to your audience and put a little bit of work into your writing pieces. If that means producing content that is different from the content you normally create, this is a good stepping stone in doing so. 

Use Amazing Images

Remember a high-quality image is key. If you do have something that is relatively low-quality and not the best, try your best to tweak it up a bit using Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop. Also, do take advantage of utilizing templates and images. Some great apps and platforms you should definitely take advantage of include Snappa, InDesignCanvaSparkFotor, PicMonkey, VismePiktochart, Venngage, PixlrWord SwagPablo, Desygner, Photofy, YouZignPlace It, Recite, and Design Bold

Wow, Sarah!

Your post is incredible. I now wish I were in the food niche! :) These over a hundred food content ideas for your blog are very helpful for someone who is in the food-focused niche. You've even offered keywords and hashtags. You've done half of the work for the writers; they should be heartfelt thankful. And all these tools you are suggesting for keyword searches, images, etc. are also very helpful. I'm familiar with several of them but haven't heard of others. I'm definitely bookmarking your page even though I'm not in this niche.

Many thanks,
