On the 1st of July 2018 we celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary with Food and Travel Guides, and what a Year it has been! This is what we have done together with our bloggers so far and what we want do year two with you and Food and Travel Guides.
Food and Travel Guides in Review
We started with 12 Food and Travel Bloggers on the 1st of July 2018. You can read about why we started Food and Travel Guides in the first place further down. If you are a Food Blogger and/ or a Travel Blogger you should join us - but lets start with what we've done with the top blogger team, during our first year!
Writing for Food and Travel Guides
Every blogger on Food and Travel Guides must contribute with an article about a Food and/ or Travel topic of their choice when joining. As a member of our community, you can do as many or as few Articles or Blog Posts you like. You only contribute when you want, as much or as little you want.
The Article is a presentation of sorts and what you can expect reading about when visiting the bloggers site and blog, and is also essential when we set up a bloggers profile.

But we also do posts about the Blogger Life with - hopefully - helpful tips for the Food and Travel Blogger, like our "Guide to Succesful Food and Travel Writing" with ultimate tips on creating fantastic content, SEO Tips and much more.
Food and Travel Community and Forum
In our Food and Travel Forum we have cathegories that's open to all and we would love start talking Food and Travel with you!
If you want access to the whole Forum - most value if you're a Food and Travel Blogger yourself - you can become a Member on Food and Travel Guides after creating a free WIX-profile with us.
We encourage collaborations and exchanging ideas between our members and bloggers, doing guest blog posts, starting projects and interacting actively with each other.
Why doing this together? Why did we start Food and Travel Guides from the beginning? Lets find out!
Lets Create, Connect and Explore Together!
The Team at Food and Travel Guides run own blogs. And the Idea with Food and Travel Guides started with three words and a perfect (brain) storm.
We realized one thing early as newbie bloggers; doing things on our own and reaching our goal with blogging about Food and Travel; in this world overwhelmed with fantastic food and travel blogs, was going to be real hard. And that troubled us. How were we supposed to be seen?
All our questions, doubts, fears, hours of analyzing, failures, setbacks but also small successes, all came down to what now have become our mantra for Food and Travel Guides: Create, Connect, Explore!
CREATE great and unique content!
We want to create a perfect mix with Guides to Worldwide Destinations and especially what to see, what to do, where to eat when travelling the world. We want to create inspiring guides and itineraries with travel tips, travel hacks, food spots, reviews and travel inspiration with you and most defenitely for you!
CONNECT with likeminded!
The main reasons with blogging is to gain readers. On that we all can agree. One thing that we thought about and were amazed with though, was the desperate, unsound competition bloggers and influencers seemed to be spending a lot of energy on, competing with each other - just to be seen and hoping a reader will see noone else.
We couldn't understand this mindset at all. There's a major error with the idea thinking that you must do everything yourself and a big failure made if you think you don't need working together with likeminded.
We come from a business where a team with different backgrounds and experiences means strength, where collegues within the same niche enrich instead of being competitors, and where working together slowly will make everyone successful.
And that became the main reason for us when we reached out and connected with our fellow bloggers!
EXPLORE the World Together!
We belive that we are meant to explore our world together; sharing our Travel Stories and Food Travels with the World. Together we can create an amazing, beautiful, interesting, inspiring Food and Travel content that will attract an audience that love Food and Travel, just like you.
Which means, there's a win-win-win situation when joining forces. You as a visitor can read quality Destination Guides here at Food and Travel Guides, You as a Blogger reach a new audience - and the last win is that all the Blogger together will make a "buzz even a Spider can't ignore" (yes, we refer to the almighty Google Algorithm)!
Basically this means; the link juice you will get from doing collabs, projects, round-ups and guest blog posts together with us and other Food and Travel Bloggers writing about the same things like yourself will defenitely increase your chances to get higher ranking positions on search engines and be seen.
Google's Business Idea is to show quality content!
We can't think of a better way of creating quality content then doing it together. It's not Rocket Science and whether you want to read - or write - great Food and Travel Guides, we hope you have figured out by now that the magic word here is together!
"Our Mission is to make Your Dreams and Site Visible!"
We run this site with that motto and that's also why it's free to register your food and travel blog with Food and Travel Guides!
We just reached our goal with 25 bloggers within the first year online. That is truly amazing! Our second year with Food and Travel Guides will be a real challenge! Now we aim to have 50 Food and Travel Bloggers connected within year two!
UPDATE: We have an average publishing pace with 2,3 new bloggers/ month!
Together we will bring YOU quality Guides and more Food and Travel Inspiration to come, so stay updated with us joining our newsletter and be sure to check back again!
Safe Travels - Stay Awesome!
