Guest bloggers wanted!

Inside Shiki Sushi in Victoria, BC

Inside Shiki Sushi in Victoria, BC

Now that I’m back in the swing of things, taking photos and writing up short posts about great places to eat in Calgary and beyond, I’d like to open up this blog to anyone who would like to join me!

I’m looking for a few guest bloggers – either those who want to write an article once in a while, who maybe want to write once a month, or even those who just want to share one or two things that really excite them!

How it works:

You write an unbiased (but hopefully positive!) article about a topic you think would interest our readers. Food, cooking, recipes, spotlights on new food-based businesses, or even a critical-thinking piece about food service/etc.

  • If you have a WordPress account, I can add you as a guest writer.
  • If not, you can email me your article and I’ll write an introduction for you, post your article, and link to your blog or website.

I’ll also need at least one nice, clear photo (sized for web please – I usually stick to about 600pixels on the long side at a dpi of 72 – if you don’t know what this means, feel free to send me your photo and I can edit it). Your watermark can absolutely be included… it’s your photo… I’m just publishing it here with your permission.

Getting social

So little by little I’m working on growing this blog – after all, what’s the point of publishing online if no one is going to read it, right?  With that being said, I was very conscious of not advertising too soon – I wanted to wait to make sure that blogging was something that would ~stick~, and that I had a bunch of things to actually blog about, before I started looking for readers!

OH… and I also really wanted CONNIE to start blogging here too before we started promoting the blog… Hint Hint… 😉

I recently submitted a few of Happy Sushi Belly’s blog posts to UrbanSpoon – whose users have long given me giggles and food for thought (pun intended) about restaurants to try out.  I’m very happy to report that some of the posts have been approved, and are up on the website now!

(Wondering which ones?  Silk Road, Sushi Tokyo, and Sushi Hanami just for starters)

I’ve also started up a Flickr account – I was so happy that Miss604 was willing to share her photos where I was unable to get any, that I thought it might be a good idea to offer the same up myself – though I’m still trying to figure out how best to use the site – so there’s not much there right now.

For a while I’ve linked the WordPress account with my own personal Facebook account too – so that my friends and family can read up on my sushi and tea adventures.  I know that a lot of bloggers use Twitter, but I’m frankly getting tired of Twitter, so don’t see myself using it very much (or very well!)

So.. now I ask the blogging world – what’s next?  What suggestions would you have to help improve Happy Sushi Belly, make it more interesting, and get more readers?  Please let me know in the comments below!
