As she was describing what it was and how she uses it in her classroom, I was literally getting goosebumps. You can purchase the paper in single sheets, but Keri loves it so much, she purchased a whole roll! Whoever invented vinyl chalkboard paper is a genius. This product is so versitle… from using it to label bins to creating activities…it is awesome!
Shop What should food bloggers write about?
This post is for food bloggers and food blog readers alike! A matchy match on both sides of the story. Every once in a while, I sit down at the computer to write a post and my brain is literally empty.
And by every once in a while I mean all the time lately.
Usually I am overflowing with words and thoughts and ideas and random stories that I feel an urgent need to share on a food blog? This is why I need a conversation about what food bloggers should write about. Now, uh, what do I have to say?
Like dumb little stories about going to the movies. Or more experiential stories about living the Philippines.
Or pictures of my house. Did I really just put those on the world wide webby? What in the world. I remember once I read a post by Joy the Baker and I can still remember the hilarious story she shared about a misplaced bee and a taken-off shirt in the middle of downtown major paraphrase there — apologies, Joy.
I have no recollection whatsoever of what the recipe was in that post. Yet I vividly remember reading that post because of the story, and I remember it again whenever I think of her blog.
And that connection is built not just because of the recipes, but because of who YOU are as a person and how well your reader can feel like they know you. And the goal is that you can very authentically communicate who you with your readers through your stories and your voice.
In the last two years, I have changed my approach from just cranking out recipe after recipe to seeing my blog as a documenting of my story. Our year-long adventure in the Philippines sort of opened that door for me. The face of the blog is food, but I hope it always also tells the story of our lives and the people around us.
The fun of reading food blogs is seeing people passionately in love with their food and oh my gosh, I just wrote that. Passionately in love with their food. What should food bloggers write about? Just make sure it sounds like you.
Of course this is coming from someone whose voice is resemblant of an armpit fart, but what are ya gonna do? Write what makes your heart do a little skip dee do, and call it a day. And then go melt some chocolate. Write about what feels authentic to you. Maybe you made this muffin recipe because it reminded you of baking with your mom when you were knee-high to a grasshopper; maybe you made it because you found out your neighbor is sick and you wanted to bring over comfort in carbs; maybe you made it because you needed a little downtime in the kitchen, and this recipe provided that.
People want to be connected to you, to know more about who you are, why you decided to make muffins today and why those muffins are just oh-so-tasty to you. You really have to play to your own strengths. If writing is not your forte, let your beautiful images or delicious recipes do most of the talking.
But if writing is something that you enjoy, then by all means, make writing a central feature of your blog. If you are going to invest in your writing, my biggest recommendation is to let your personality come through. When it comes to describing the recipe itself, I suggest keeping that portion somewhat brief and letting people read the recipe itself.
I usually try to describe any interesting components of the recipe and highlight something that makes it stand out — a particular flavor or texture, or how easy it was to make. Figure out what your strengths are and what you want your blog to convey, and write — a lot or a little — along those lines.
I personally think that bloggers should write about what comes naturally to them. And they should write about what they themselves would like to read. Finish up with a line or two on why the dish is fab… and boom. Just one thing you should never do as a food blogger: I also love food photography.
I wrote an ebook that can help you learn your camera and I also teach food photography workshops in our Minneapolis studio.Private Letters Index This is a sample Letter to Friend Describing A Visit to The Museum. Chennai 4th March My dear Kavitha, Received your letter.
I am thankful to you for your kind letter. I am really very sorry that I could not reply to your earlier letter as I had gone to Agra. May I give a brief account of my visit to that place?
The Taj was erected on a white marble platform. The . Humor is a funny thing, though. (You should excuse the expression.) This is definitely an area where you have to know your audience. I've had numerous experiences where the same joke, delivered in the same way and during the same presentation, kills in one place and falls flat in another, simply because the audience was a different group of people.

The Good. I love the deliciousness of certain words—the way something as ordinary as chocolate can take on an entire new personality when dressed up with adjectives like warm, rich, thick, gooey, chilled, creamy, or frothy.. Such descriptive words bring everyday foods to life..
Magazine writers, cookbook editors, food bloggers, and restaurant reviewers are experts at describing a food. There are many times when you want to direct your friends to a good video you have seen, or to send them a link to a web page that you want to share.
