1. Tell us about your background and journey. 

Let me go into the background of creating my Instagram account swad_darbar, I’ve wanted to start a food blog and share famous dishes from different places. 2018 is the year that I finally decided that I was going to do something about it. 

Then, I began shooting and building a backlog of dishes. I also felt that I needed to have a backlog of 20+ dishes. I learned how to grow my Instagram following by posting, using popular hashtags, and liking hundreds of photos a day in those hashtags. 

I was getting 5 6 followers a day and very few visitors a day to my site from Instagram. This time I have more than 7000 followers on my Instagram account. This journey is full of fun! I enjoyed a lot by visiting different places and try some good new food.

2. When did you first decide that you wanted to create content and how did you start?

Its modern era and people are moving towards social networking sites. There is a great trend of Snapchat and I also started from Snapchat, clicking photos from different angles and I also have an interest in photography and that's how I started creating my own content.

3. Is vlogging and Instagram content creation a financially sustainable career?

Yes, vlogging and Instagram content creation a financially sustainable career when you're ready to do hard work and good in creating unique content, you will get so many benefits you just have to do a lot of hard work trying to make real content, avoid copied content. 

As I m food blogger i also get many benefits like meets at different places or other vlogging activities also have many benefits sometimes you receive gifts or also get paid of doing promotions

4. Who is your favorite creator and why? 

All the bloggers are doing their great work. Karan dua and Kuljyoti Dhingra both are my favorite. I really admire their work. The way he does blogging is very unique. His blogs are very different that makes him stand out of the crowd. I appreciate there work and learned a lot from him.

5. How and where do you find inspiration to churn out content?

Love for food brings me into food blogging. I love to travel and try different food and click photographs and I use get appreciated for photography from my loved ones. And one a fine day I decided to create my own page. Also, I get inspired by my family and friends who supported me.

6. What does your typical day look like?

I woke up at 9 am daily and I check my Instagram account to make sure everything goes smoothly and post content daily on Instagram and Facebook. Then I start finding something very interesting to eat at breakfast. 

And also I m doing an internship, meanwhile, I also check, if I have to go out for any meets or bloggers event. Then after doing full day work. I make dinner for myself and I watch the news while having dinner, after that, I check my emails or Instagram. 

7. Which is your favorite book and why?

Although I am a food blogger I don't read books related to food My favorite book is usually the one I am reading nowadays. At the moment, I’m rereading the “History of Love” by Nicole Krauss. It’s a lyrical story about love and loss and just beautifully written. 

For me, this book is a reminder of why I love to write: to touch hearts, to shine the light on the parts of our humanity that we hide from one another, and to give a picture of the struggles each one of us faces.

8. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring creators?

As a creator, you should create good and unique content. Do not copy other content. Your content should be 100% real. Don't move towards fake engagement. Create your own content with your hard work. You must be knowing with your content.
