As a food blogger with a day job in digital marketing, I’ve always had a keen interest in the intersection of food, technology and social media. Since launching Make A Story last fall, Instagram has served as my biggest source of inspiration for recipe development and food styling. Through the platform, I have discovered and connected with other food bloggers, editors and enthusiasts around the globe, many of whom are passionate amateurs like myself, interpreting food in their unique style and voice.
Today, we’re proud to announce the official launch of Make A Story’s Fresh 100, a daily list of the best food photos on Instagram from our favorite food magazines, blogs, editors, photographers and stylists. The Fresh 100 calculates the engagement rate of Instagram photos pulled from a carefully curated list of Instagrammers, then ranks them from 1 to 100. The site is automatically refreshed at 9am daily so you can expect a fresh batch of delightful food photos every morning. Our hope is that this beautiful, mouthwatering feed inspires you to embrace culinary adventures of your own.
To help us celebrate, we asked four of our favorite food bloggers to share their Instagram tips and tricks with you.
