Overview

Is This Book for You?

There are as many different ways to earn an income by food blogging as there are types of food blogs. It would be impossible to cover every single way to earn money, but in the pages that follow, we detail what has worked for us in the decade or so that we’ve been running our foodie sites. We also offer ideas and creative sparks to help you generate new ideas for your food blog.

This book is designed to help those who have not yet started their foodie site, or those who already have a foodie site or food blog and want to monetize or increase their earnings. We cover a lot of the basics on how to conceptualize your food site if you don’t already have one, how to start up your site or blog, different ways to monetize and earn income, social media, marketing and promotion, writing and publishing cookbooks, food writing, and food photography. We also include a number of interviews with successful food bloggers, writers, and a photographer that specializes in food.

This book is not necessarily a step-by-step plan to follow, but a discussion of strategy for what has worked for us in writing and blogging about food. These strategies have served us well. We hope they serve you, too!
