[Blog] Want a Successful Food Blog? (+ Video)

LA Weekly’s Squid Ink food blog

Make sure you use colorful, captivating photos. Write with your own voice — the funnier the better, but don’t aim for wit at the expense of clarity. And put a unique spin on the news, especially if it’s been floating around the Blogosphere and Twitterverse for a week or more. (Like a hot restaurant opening. Happened to me!)

That’s what I said when my UCLA Extension “New Media Reporting” professor (and LA Weekly news blogger) Dennis Romero asked me to talk about creating a successful food blog. (We had been practicing making short videos based on interviews.) I answered off the top of my head… definitely a topic to revisit.
