Comment on How to Start a Food Blog by Anestes Fotiades.

Excellent article Malcolm. It should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a food blog, especially the section on motivation, goals and dedication. I don’t think publishing every day is a necessary for all blogs. However, in my experience the bloggers that don’t take the time to realistically evaluate what they’re trying to accomplish, the size readership they hope to build and what they’re willing to do to make it happen are inevitably disappointed.

Malcolm Bedell is co-author of the critically acclaimed "Eating in Maine: At Home, On the Town, and On the Road," as well as the taco-centric blog "Eat More Tacos," and the junk food-centric "Spork & Barrel." His contributions include Serious Eats, Down East, L.A. Weekly, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post and his food truck, "'Wich, Please," was named "Hottest Restaurant in Maine" for 2015 by Eater. Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
