Interview with food & travel blogger Kamiya Jani


Interviewer: How do you generate ideas?

Kamiya: I think about all the questions I would have as a traveler or a food enthusiast, pen them down on a sheet, and start working on it. I also trace news and trends in the food & travel space and then work on an in-depth feature story on it. Something that has not been done by others. 

Interviewer: How you become a content creator?

Kamiya: By telling stories in the most engaging fashion while giving it a personal touch. 

Identify your audience
Establish your voice
Put yourself out there
Reflective of your personality
DON’T BE - Jack of all, master of none
Position yourself as an expert in one specific area 
Interview with food & travel blogger Kamiya Jani

Interviewer: How do you measure the content’s success?

Kamiya: In the most simple way, through virality. However, I realize that Social media is an important distribution funnel but not the destination. Blogs or websites will always be relevant when they are looking for information. People google information and not always look for it on Instagram. Google Analytics tells us about the pageviews content gets and youtube tells us about the video views and that's the parameter.

Interviewer: How do you react when content bombs?

Kamiya: I am fine with taking risks. It disappoints me a little if I have set high expectations but I move on very quickly to my next project.

Interviewer: Impact of social media in your life as a content creator?

Kamiya: My professional life revolves around social media.

Interviewer: Future planning for your content(How you will improve)

Kamiya: I heavily rely on making a content calendar, a week in advance. Every week, we publish over 14 videos and over 100 articles. I work with a big team now so getting everyone on the same page is a bit of a challenge but the process is quite enjoyable. For us, the audience is the king and content should be helpful for him.

Interviewer: What do you think of our current social media efforts?  

Kamiya: Would want to understand in which way. But there are two sides to social media. It can be your best friend or your enemy. I look at it as a learning ground and a pool of ideas so I quite enjoy it.

The beauty of Niagara Falls is difficult to describe, but I’ll try! What can be better than viewing the splendid falls from your own room. Every morning I would wake up to this gorgeous view as I stayed at @sheratononthefalls in Ontario. But staying at the hotel with a view is not the way to witness this beauty. Here are 6 more: . . 1. Hornblower Cruise Viewing - Sail aboard the state-of-the-art, 150 passenger Hornblower Guardian Jet 2. White Water Walk - Take a boardwalk situated on the very edge of Niagara’s whitewater 3. Get down on a 70m elevator through a tunnel onto the 1000ft boardwalk 4. 4D Experience - Discover the ancient story of Niagara in 4D at the 360 degree theatre 5. Experience water & bubble spray as you travel down a river or even snow 6. Zip Lining - The MistRider Zipline at Grand View Marketplace is 640m low 7. Journey Behind The Falls - Enter the heart of the falls through 130 yr old tunnels of bedrocks 8. Helicopter Viewing - Hop onto a fleet of the 7-passenger Airbus H130 that flies year-round. . . Choose your favourite way to watch this fresh white water crash down!
