Food Blogger Resources

When I first wanted to start a food blog, I knew it would take hard work and dedication. While working in digital marketing, I managed blogs and the social platforms of several clients. I realized the amount of work and tedious attention to detail necessary to make a blog successful but it wasn’t until I got into it myself that I realized it was A LOT OF WORK. More about that here.

Once I was finally ready to take the plunge and go head first into this whole food blog biz, I handled it like I handle everything in life – I goggled the hell out of it! So here are some helpful resources that helped me get me started. Hope this help you too!

Tools For Success

  • Food Blogger Pro: The BEST community to get you started and maintain your food blog. Great way to make friends too! There’s message boards, how-to videos, and tons of valuable tips for growing your blog. Food Blogger Pro has over 300 videos on anything from how to set up Google Analytics, SEO tips, building traffic, food photography and of course, generating an income. Get on the waiting list and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!
  • MailChimp: One of the first things I did when I started my blog was sign up for MailChimp. I know the importance of reaching my readers outside of social media. Email may not be the most popular but a lot of my initial traffic came from MailChimp newsletters. MailChimp allows you to store up to 2,000 subscriber emails and send up to 12,000 customizable email newsletters per month! FOR FREE!
  • Tailwind App: This is one of my favorite tools. It’s like your own personal intern for Pinterest. You basically schedule your posts / pins into any and all the boards you want and it does the rest for you. It’s such a time saver!

  • Hi Jamie!

    I just found your blog and I love it! :)
    This post especially has hit it spot on for me. I have been blogging for a few months and always wanted to take the leap on joining communities but since they were paid I wasn’t sure and had a lot of doubts joining these communities but you seem to rate them so highly! :)
    I also love that you list podcasts and courses as well!
    Thanks so much for listing these resources, and helping a fellow blogger out.
