Blogging the News

Social media plan

November 24, 2014 Written by | No Comments

Twitter and Google Plus are two social media sites that seem to be most popular. Many journalists have credited both of those sites to promote their work. That seems to be the best way to garner readership. Hash tags will also be an essential part in using social media. It will prove to be another positive way in having my work more recognizable. Here are fifteen accounts that I’d reach out to and would like to be associated with.

@RShreeves: Her work covers around being eco-friendly. That consists of a heavy use of vegetables and fruits. She has over 4,000 followers and is consistent in posting environmental based food choices.

@FollowNathan: In a remarkable story, he spent 5 months and 4300 miles biked around the United States. While on this trip, he interviewed people around food chains and agriculture. This applies to my blog well from all of the traveling.

@TheFoodTrust: A website that wants to ensure their readers about having affordable meals. These meals also include nutrition, which connects to my blog effectively. This is a nonprofit organization as well.

@EdibleStories: They look to post about local foods in your area. It can become rather convenient, especially when you’re looking for a fulfilling meal. From what I’ve said, they focus on food chains and what the health benefits are from them.

@KitchenKop: An actual blog that investigates on incorrect health tidbits. Just recently, I looked through various food chains that can still be beneficial. Kitchen Kop is a good fit because it gives them information on various nutrition topics.

@FoodRenegade: Another website that looks purely on nutrition. The difference is that these tweets and articles come from a well-accomplished author. She is very adamant on helping those, who are constantly struggling to find a balance due to other life obligations.

@DaveZinczenko: One of the most popular nutritionists in the world. He’s well versed in practically everything, when it comes to food. He travels all across the United States as well, which shows his experience in adapting to eating out.

@EatingWell: This account is different because it’s mainly a magazine that focuses more on good tasting food. They make it an objective to combine good tasting food, along with having actual health benefits.

@Meredithmo: She is someone that seems more reachable than some of the other accounts. Her account only has 5,655 followers and talks too many of her followers. Local food is one of her main priorities to write about.

@Fairfoodfight: They have a more aggressive style of writing. Many of their articles pertain to recognizing what organic food is. Their aggressive style does intrigue me, which is why I’d like to connect with them.

@MichaelBauer1: While he resides in the West coast, his articles are very informative. He includes many recipes from what he’s eaten across that part of the country. It helps involving what to order at a particular restaurant.

@AmandaHesser: Besides writing for the New York Times, she is very active with her followers. Despite having 151,000 followers, her openness really interests me. As someone who writes for a major publication, she has experience in practically every food culture.

@Mbhide: Her writing focuses on her Indian heritage. That leads to her focusing on a healthy appetite, as it focuses on bowl dishes. It brings a different twist compared to other writers. Sometimes focusing on just one certain culture is much easier to follow.

@TheFoodLab: Another writer that has thousands of followers, yet still interacts with his readers. Many of his articles pertain to certain recipes and what to order when trying to eat healthy out.

@GaelGreene: One of my favorite choices because she’s consistently eating across New York City. Her popularity is enormous at 123,000 followers. Many of her articles are based on experiences in eating in New York City. A perfect fit for what I’m intending to do.
I’d use my Twitter account at @AllenStrk to promote my blog. I’d post my articles in the morning, which is the best time for people to read it. People are too busy with their lives in the afternoon or night. I’d post around twice a week on weekdays to reach out to as many people as possible. You have to figure out a proper time frame for people to read articles. The weekend is usually the time that people like to enjoy their lives and stay away from the computer. That would be my agenda to promote my work efficiently. Reddit would also be another site that I’d link my articles too.
