Full Time Foodies Interviews and Blogging Posts
Every food blogging journey to full time is as unique as the amount of ways we can all cook pancakes. From those who lost their jobs and were forced into taking the leap, to others who waited until they’d saved for years so they’d have enough support with a little more security behind them. Each path is so fascinating, we feel they should be shared with everyone.
Read and discover stories from full time food bloggers around the world, with helpful resources, recommendations and advice. Learn how to transition to food blogging full time, starting with our first interview with It’s Not Complicated Recipes.
Don’t get frustrated when things don’t happen overnight – blogging is a long-term game, and you must be patient! Also – get started earlier. I don’t believe in having regrets, but it can be difficult to not wonder why I didn’t start a blog years ago when I first thought of it!Alex, It’s Not Complicated Recipes – Full Time Foodies Interview #1
My biggest traffic referrer is Google. Even with nearly 700K followers on Facebook, 100K on Instagram, I would say that 80% of my blog traffic comes from Google.Lisa, Fresh Eggs Daily – Full Time Foodies Interview # 2
I finally started really asking myself why I was doing certain things and if they were serving my goals for my business. For instance, I used to be obsessed with keeping my Instagram feed looking beautiful and curated. Why? Because that’s what everyone would say you needed to do to be successful and have a lot of followers. It really stressed me out, because photography is not my passion and I just don’t want to spend a lot of my limited time focusing on taking images.Kristin, Baker Bettie – Full Time Foodies Interview #3
(On going full time) My BFF told me “if it was a good decision for your family at the time, it’s still a good decision for your family.” If you’ve put thought into your decision, there was a reason for it. Trust your gut, don’t burn any bridges on your way out of your former job, and take the plunge.Lynn, Fresh April Flours – Full Time Foodies Interview #4
