What goes into writing a good food article? Our articles for The Love of Food Magazine are always planned and outlined, but never scripted.
When we publish a monthly issue of the magazine we typically start with an overarching theme. That theme will contain a series of articles that relate to one another. For example, since January is the month when most people make their New Year’s resolutions we needed to come up with a theme that addressed the most popular food-related goals. We planned to write articles about healthy eating and how to add in fun exercise that helps burn the most calories. That transpired into articles about meal planning, juicing, the Keto lifestyle, boxing classes at Title Boxing Club and more.
When we write an article we always try to remain positive, but objective. We let our experience unfold in front of us so that we can embark on an adventure together. We always incorporate photography into our articles and we try to use video when appropriate. Video helps to lend authenticity to the article. Sometimes video is requested and planned and other times we simply pull out our cell phones and spontaneously ask for an interview. Regardless if it is selecting an entree or learning about a piece of art, we want our reader to share the moment right along with us.
