If you’re starting to discover your love for food and want to share it with the world, you might find you need to open a few more social media accounts than you have right now. After all, what good is it to review restaurants, come up with no recipes, and share food pictures if you don’t have a good place to do that? Here are the best websites that let you easily share your love of food with friends and strangers!
Probably the most all-inclusive way to share your foodie thoughts is by starting a blog, and Tumblr is a blogging site that makes it extremely easy for others you pass on your opinions and pictures! Food bloggers such as Maxim Gorin are extremely easy to find here, so jump in and join the gang. You can post your own pictures, videos, or text posts, link to other interesting posts and websites online, or “reblog” other Tumblr users’ relevant posts. With just a click of a button, your Tumblr followers can pass on anything you share with them, and before you know it, you’re an Internet foodie sensation!
An often-heard joke about foodies is that they take pictures of their food — but if you’ve made a dish that looks too good to eat, you want to share it! Instagram is all about sharing pictures, so grab a quick photo with your phone and upload it instantly to your account for all your followers to see and share. It’s one of the most popular photo-sharing apps around, with millions of users sharing their photos, so jump on the bandwagon and make the most of it before it stops being cool.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but what if you want to include words along with your picture? Pinterest is one of the most popular sites for sharing picture-based posts, as well as many web surfers’ top choice for finding recipes. “Pin” your favorite recipes with a picture attached, and your account followers will see that picture first and foremost — with the option to click on the link if they want to see more. Add a picture that’s tantalizing enough, and chances are they’ll just have to know how to make it! Then your followers can repin your posts, saving it to their own accounts to try out later.
4. Yelp and Urbanspoon
Getting viewers on your personal blog or social media accounts can take time, and sometimes you’re just itching to write a scathing review of that awful new restaurant you visited last night. Social review sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon invite users to rank and review local businesses. You can find just about any restaurant in your area, everything from fast food to sit-down establishments with a dress code. Browse and rank other users’ reviews or submit your own. If you become a respected reviewer on the site, your write-ups can rise to the top and help others make decisions about where to eat tonight.
Whether you’re just discovering your love of food, or whether you’re a long-time foodie looking to expand your horizons, checking out these sites will let you share your thoughts and connect with the people who want to hear them.photo credit: www.finedininglovers.com
