With unique and innovative restaurants popping up in cities around the world, dietary trends making a big shift and now including everything from fat-free to paleo, and the online and Internet world booming more than ever, it only makes sense that starting a food blog is the perfect thing for a food connoisseur. However, eating food and clicking pictures & posting are two completely different things, and becoming a Instagram food blogger requires a specific skill set and strategy.
Over more than a decade, India’s food bloggers have been raking up followings on fresh platforms, while still staying true to their original, traditional platforms. Needless to say, the earlier crop has seen a lot change with time — from popular cuisines to fads, trends and movements. And they have a lot to say about it. Our today’s post is also about one of the dynamic Instagram bloggers who continues to leave his mark on the hearts of every connoisseur. He is someone who barely needs an introduction. No matter where you reside, you’ve apparently heard of Rizwan because it’s hard to miss the affable man with a big heart and a great sense of humor which reflects through his Insta captions. Rizwan is a passionate food blogger and the creator of “WhereinWorld” and “explorewithriz” where he posts alluring pictures of food and travelling around the world. Rizwan reaches out to almost every food place traversing flavors which can satisfy his taste buds and his soul. His Instagram feed is an evidence of all the appetizing delicacies and cuisines. Rizwan is becoming a trending Instagram blogger from India who gives you a mesmerising experience into his world of food. “My life revolves around food. I live to eat. To be honest, my style of blogging is of the food, for the food and by the food,” says Rizwan. Mr. Farooqui is an MBA graduate and partner at ‘Spoonfuldigital’ with Faraz.
Rizwan devotes a lot of time to clicking bewitching pictures which makes everyone desirous of his ability to do so and Rizwan’s this art of getting attention from all around is worth learning. However, it requires a lot of hard-work and determination to become a successful blogger. You can’t simply start a blog and imagine getting fame immediately. In order to flourish as a blogger, you must be consistent with your work, post good quality content, solve problems, entertain, attract an audience and that is what Rizwan is specialized in. He avows,”There is no guide you should follow to achieve your goal. Keep your passion alive, actively post your content and be consistent with what you actually want to do with your passion. Doesn’t matter whether you’re being liked or not, just keep putting your best efforts and at the end you will be there. People are going to love your great work.”
Undoubtedly, 2020 has been the worst year for everybody in this world. Food bloggers have been affected by Covid-19 by not being able to explore new places to eat out & take pictures. They had to change their posting style and content creation. “Unfortunately, this unprecedented time has been very difficult for all of us but there is light at the end of the tunnel and that credit goes to great chefs out there who took this time as an opportunity and have started home-cooked food which I get to order and review for them.” Rizwan and his blogs ‘WhereinWorld’ and ‘explorewithriz’ has grown to a family of thousands now. He is such a brilliant blogger who has precisely proven that hard work pays off. Now, Rizwan has become an inspiration for those who want to stand out and leave their mark in the blogging field. Lately, he has been thinking of starting a YouTube channel and vlogging to manifest his passion for food.
