Blogger Spotlight- Interview with Food and Travel Blogger Rethabile Mabula

Tell us about yourself and how we can connect with you (links, website, social pages)

My name is Rethabile. I am a food and travel blogger from South Africa.

You can connect with me on my blog:  

As well as on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest using the handle @myfoodortravel

What would you like to promote? (Add links, description, photos)

I focus on relatable and affordable reviews mostly based in Africa. I know that there are a lot of people that are in this particular niche however, I like to look at the cheaper options!

I also give advice as well as share my experiences and reviews. More frequently on Instagram at the handle @myfoodortravel

How do you attract new business?

I love connecting with fellow bloggers, especially on social media platforms. I have found Twitter and Instagram to be very helpful! I use Facebook more to attract people to my blog posts. I try to post blogs as often as I can, that is mostly how people get to know about me and tend to follow my experiences as well as subscribe to my mailing list.

What is your favorite comfort food?

I like to try out new restaurants and different food, mostly for my food reviews. However, I love my seafood. Anyone that dines with me frequently knows that I would pick calamari and prawns over any dish, any day!

What has influenced you the most?

I got the chance to have my first out-of-the-country solo trip about 3 years ago. That was the source of starting my blog. I have always been really interested in traveling however the questions I got about my travels then were what made me realize that most of the time the lack of information on travel information is what limits us. That is why I decided to blog all about it. Also seeing fellow bloggers trying out new experiences in South Africa makes me want to do more as well on my end.

What helps you to stay motivated?

I love getting feedback from people who have used my blogs to visit restaurants and plan their trips. Just knowing that I was of some help to someone always motivates me to share my experiences. That is the reason I started the blog, to begin with.

Thank you Rethabile for this wonderful interview!
