Today it's International Women's Day and my thought go naturally to every woman!I could develop a bit more about this topic but I'd rather let the journalists do their job.Instead,I would love to focus on the women food blogging community,because let's face it,主要是女人在写关于食物的博客。我不抱怨，我的意思是说应该有更多的人等等。然而，我认为这是一个完美的机会来告诉你所有发生在女性食品博客生活中的事情。
What we see when scrolling down a food blog is basically mouthwatering pictures of food along with the recipe attached.We might even see all the blahblah around but come on,不要害羞，we all know that we often skip this part due to a lack of time or interest.但是如果你想一分钟，do you have an idea about what blogging about food really is?I noticed that most of the women bloggers are quite modest about this and won't tell how much time they spend in the kitchen and behind the screen.也，because it's so exciting,我们不会计算我们真正花费的时间！但既然今天是我们的日子，我想通过告诉你我们真正做了什么来尊重美食博客社区的所有女性。
Step one,of course we need to create the recipe.这看起来很容易，I mean if we blog about food it means we're good at cooking or baking,right?实际上，这有点困难。我们需要提前考虑一下我们想要创建的配方。我们不想发布标准配方”你可以在网上的任何地方找到。Then of course we need to do the recipe by gathering up all the ingredients we thought of using,有时这是一个彻底的失败，我们甚至不能想到在博客上张贴食谱！烹饪和烘焙是一个没完没了的实验。It's really fun but sometimes the result is far away from what we expected.Not only do we want the recipe to taste good but also to look delicious.
第二步，you may think"吃”?！Nooooo,请不要！The food looks and smells good but sorry guys,it's time for the photography session.你可能认为我们所要做的就是按下相机的按钮，然后一切都结束了。In reality,being a good food photographer is a bit more complicated.学习如何使用相机至关重要，especially when you have a DSLR camera (I'm still working on it).但首先我们需要考虑食物周围的环境，which means using and/or buying accessories so that we can play with the colors.We don't only want you willing to eat the food but also dream of the food you want to eat.在写关于食物的博客时，图片的美学方面是最基本的。I cannot agree with anyone who claims that all that really matters is the recipe (although the recipe must be as amazing as the pictures are,don't get me wrong).But the fact is,we all naturally salivate in front of a beautiful picture of food and all the success stories about food blogging match with beautiful food pictures and that's why the photography session is so important.The recipe here might not be the one which illustrates my point the most,but I would recommend you have a look at my生巧克力杏仁冰沙or my巧克力芒果可可乞丐钱包recipes.
Step three,we have got to write the post with the recipe and all the blahblah around (this takes me even more time since I write all my recipes both in English and 万博万博电竞French,意思是写两次，plus I have to think about the measurement conversions).再说一遍，我们必须处理这些图片，并选择几个我们想用来发表文章的图片。
Step four,a woman blogging about food has to be good in marketing.We all need to use all the platforms we might find on the web to help us being referenced as much as possible.这意味着用一种聪明的方式玩社交媒体，publishing the recipes on photography platforms and even try to be published in select magazines (see my page压力).I tell you straight away,there are endless possibilities and it can be difficult to not get lost.You also have to answer to all the requests you receive about your recipes and comments you get on your blog,这样你就可以保持互动部分的活力。When talking about marketing,we also want to make some strategic partnerships with food and design companies or magazines.
Step five,dealing with both our full-time job and our almost full time blog.Women blogging about food almost always have the feeling they have two full-time jobs.And seriously,we do!It takes so much time to do both of them seriously but that's what we do!！
Step six,家庭时间。女性美食博客包括女性，don't forget it.所以我们经常有人和孩子分享我们的生活，我们需要在每件事之间找到平衡！My boyfriend is very supportive even if I know it's not alway easy (if you think for instance that I just had a complete burn out because this article suddenly disappeared as I didn't save it for a little while),so I've got to say I'm really lucky having him in my life!！
步骤七，allow oneself to have some free time!否则烧坏就很快了。所以我们都想和家人和朋友一起度过空闲时间，training,doing some crazy shopping sessions sometimes,and travel (I love this part!).Having a full time job and being a recipe developer – food photographer – food blogger – marketing manager – owner of its own business – wife and/or mom – friend WOMAN is really something,I tell you!我们都应该为自己感到骄傲！！
第八步（是的，我以8结尾，因为我们是3月8日，the International Women's Day),well everyone is starving now,所以是时候吃你做的食谱了。Hope you didn't forget!I think you all deserve a slice of this delicious Pecan Brownie Cheesecake.
