 Today I’m Eating FAQ’s

Welcome to Today I’m Eating! What are you Eating Today?

TIE FACEBOOK TESTToday I’m Eating is….. (takes deep breath) a recipe sharing, food reviewing, taste bud inspiring, restaurant rating, chef uncovering, foodie community! We are part of the Absolutely Awesome Group which is a bunch of like minded food, technology, news, community and social media nuts that get very excited about all projects but especially food and sharing everyone’s experiences!

Today I’m Eating is for anyone that loves food or restaurants and wants to share their experiences and inspire others! You either create and share a recipe, tagging the main ingredients so others can find it. Or be out with friends and have a dish that just blows your mind and you can share it, linking it to the restaurant, raising their profile and sharing the love! Or you can just make a great dish a home and show the world your culinary brilliance!

We want you to have fun!! People will follow you depending on your dishes and personality. So if you produce a series of super healthy dishes or you are travelling the world taking photos of your favourite candy bar then it’s all good with the Today I’m Eating Team.

How it all began…

Today I’m Eating was born out off a lack of information. We were travelling at the time around a City we had never been to and wanted to experience some of the best local cuisine but which reviews to trusts?? So we thought we get access to the worlds best food reviewers…. YOU! Everyday on twitter, facebook, instagram, tumblr etc we randomly saw these great dishes and restaurants but there was never a place to go that collects these images and links them to the restaurant to give you a real feel for the venue and food! So… Today I’m Eating was born!

Our twitter site launched (@today_im_eating) and people started telling us what they were eating and the community started to grow! People were inspiring, sharing tips, experiences and photos… it was beginning to take off!

All about the Community!

Today I’m Eating is all about giving a platform to interesting food and people, if you are a food blogger and you want to write as a SUPER FOODIE on our site then contact us here with an example of your work: yum@todayimeating.com.

We are looking for people around the world who are passionate about food and sharing their experiences. We want you to be part of the Today I’m Eating Team (TIE TEAM) and as the site grows we want to be able to focus more and more on the local gastronomic wonders in a region! WE WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF THIS!

Meet the Team.

How do I upload photos and how many can I upload??

You can use your phone or camera to upload photos and we have an option to access your Instagram Account so you can upload all your amazing foodie photos you have taken over the years and give them a proper platform where they are appreciated.

How many can you load? As many as you want… go nuts!! We’d ask you take the time to get as beautiful a foodie photo as you can to bring the dish and restaurant to life! The more detailed your comments and the more beautiful your photos then the more followers you will have and the more famous a foodie you will become!

Can I become a blogger for Today I’m Eating?

YES YOU CAN!!! We know there are so many talented people out there with amazing blogs that you simply don’t come across… we want to change that and give you an opportunity to reach a wider audience! If you want to be a superstar blogger then email us at: yum@todayimeating.com. The best food bloggers we will send of on missions to review restaurants and street food venues!

Is there a correct time I should upload my photos?

Nope. If you had a midnight feast and need to share it with the world at that moment then go for it!! We have a global team working 24hrs a day so once we have checked the quality and content (no naughty food pics… it happens! *Cringe*) then it will appear on the home page.

How I show some love?

We love love! It’s all about giving and letting people you like something, the more you give the more you get back! Simply under each food photo is a heart that you click to show some appreciation for their dish…. the people with the most ticks will appear in the favourites sections on the website (a  sort of hall of fame). If that isn’t enough then at the bottom of the page there is a comments sections and like the favourites section then these will appear in the “Most Talked About” section, recipes are particularly popular for comments btw! Simples!

How do I follow people?

Ok.. this one is a bit more complicated…. nah! It’s easy! Once you have clicked on a foodie photo you like you will be taken to a page that gives more detail on the recipe or dish and next to it is a “Follow” button. Click that and then the user will receive an alert when you’re following them – which means they can then check out your profile too – and then you can let the recipe sharing begin and life long friendships!

How do I share food photos with the world?

Once you have uploaded your photo and tagged it, it will appear on the homepage and in your profile page. Simply click on the image you want and under it are a selection social media buttons allowing you to share it to twitter, facebook, pinterest etc.. We love a share and love inspiring! Get them out there!

Is there a newsletter?

When you sign up to Today I’m Eating there is an option to receive the newsletter and I would suggest you do! We simple pop you an email once a month with some of the best dishes and deals around the foodie world! With all the competitions and best blogs featuring it really will be something short and sweet that is worth reading!

Can I post negative comment?

For food dishes and recipes we say “No”, we do however really encourage constructive feedback and idea enhancement. I.E “Have you thought adding Chilli to the dish?”, “I’d do that on the bbq next time” etc. We hate haters! So keep it positive and encourage others!

However…

When it comes to restaurant reviews we want the site to be a true reflection of your experience and build an honest community of feedback to ensure the worlds greatest restaurants, street food stalls and hidden gems get found! Be constructive, be honest and be happy knowing you are helping others.

Where has my photo gone?

Uh oh! Someone has probably posted an in appropriate food or heavily branded photo! We don’t mind chefs and restaurant owners putting their own photos up (we actually encourage it!) but if people start using it as an advertising portal then the photos will be removed and most likely there account shut.
