Comment on How to Start a Food Blog by Michelle @ Taste As You Go.

This was a great post to read — thanks for writing it!

With that said, though, I’ve been able to customize my food blog hosted on Blogger so it doesn’t look like all the others (at least, in my opinion). I think one of the bigger issues has to do with many food blogs looking the same and sounding the same in terms of how a post is set up, the tone it takes, and the way pictures are formatted. I don’t mind if layouts are similar as long as the content sounds like it’s coming from someone with a unique POV.

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 junk food blog "Spork & Barrel," and "Brocavore," a blog about food trucks and street food culture. His contributions include Serious Eats, Down East, Eat Rockland, 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.
