The greatest food blogs feel like a good conversation between friends; comfortable, warm, with snacks at an arm’s length. Such is Aneesha Ahmed’s blog, Good Food Guwahati.
Many foodies visit her blog to find meal ideas that will be a hit with the family! Hailing from Guwahati, she has taken social media by storm with her creative take on smoothie bowls, desserts and other eye-catching healthy recipes.
She revealed that the idea to blog came to her after attending a blogging workshop ‘Weblog’. ‘It was WeBlog that taught me how to start a blog, and also. how to turn my passion into content. I started this blog casually, but now it has become a part of my life.’ Aneesha finds inspiration in her father. ‘He loves trying out new delicacies, and is also very eager to try out new recipes.’
On her blog, you can find recipes and reviews. She posts fairly regularly and is extremely active on Facebook, Instragram and Twitter. ‘I am still a student so I have to manage my time well, in order to pursue my passion for food blogging.’ According to Aneesha, the best part of the blogging journey has been the support of the people. Of course, it is not all roses. ‘There are some people who taunt me about eating free food. But they do not understand that food blogging is not about stuffing your face with free food. It is a lot more than that. I put in a lot of effort and work.’
But the negative criticism has not affected her much, she continues to do what makes her happy. She hopes that more and more people will discover the love for blogging. For aspiring bloggers, Aneesha recommends clicking pictures out in natural light. ‘Do not use overhead lights or lamps or flash. Try taking photos from multiple angles, and also, do not over edit.’
