Clean eating is all the rage right now. Unlike up to 80% of food packaged in the U.S. containing dangerous chemicals, this “unpackaged” diet doesn’t have any of the unnecessary colors, additives, and preservatives found in many foods on the market.
Clean eating is still a relatively new and unfamiliar concept to many of us who have spent years eating prepackaged food made with unnatural ingredients. Have you thought about starting a clean eating blog?
There is no doubt the public could use healthy, reliable information, and with the rising popularity of clean eating, it’s likely to be widely read.
But, before you get started, here are 5 things you need to know.
1. Research Your Platform
You’ve already done the most important step when starting your own blog.
The first thing that any blogging hopeful needs to do is to identify their platform or niche. In your case, this would be defined as “clean eating”.
But before you start your blog, you need to research your topic thoroughly. Find out the latest advice, tips, and news.
It’s also a good idea to find some great sites or videos that can be used as “go to” material for your blog.

2. Decide on a Site for Your Blog
There are lots of free sites available! Some of these offer options for upgrading at a later time.
You might choose to begin with a free basic site and upgrade as needed.
3. Choose a Domain Name and Host
There are many hosting services to choose from. Some of the best ones cost $10 dollars or less, so don’t be fooled into thinking this has to cost a lot of money.
When you choose your domain name, makes sure to use something that lets readers know that it’s a clean eating blog. This way you are sure to attract your target audience. In this case, yours would be readers who are interested in clean eating.
Another option is to use your business name.
Then choose how your blog name will end. Most sites end with .com, for example. You may want to stick with this choice because it’s easy for your readers to remember.
4. Customize Your Clean Eating Blog
Here is the fun part. You get to choose what theme you will use, decide what your menu will look like, and create links to any internal or external sites that may be helpful to your audience.
Make sure that you include a form that allows readers to contact and message you. Even if you are not selling a product, this step is important. It will allow your readers to communicate with you.
Also, add any social media links so that your readers can follow you and stay up to date on your latest posts.
5. Write Your First Post
Now it’s time to construct the perfect blog post to kick off your clean eating blog.
You may want to go ahead and write a few blog posts prior to publishing your blog so that your readers will look to you for regular content. This way they will see that you have plenty to say on your blog.
