How to start a food blog in 2021 (easy & fast)

Digital Detox how to use social media mindfully

It can be quite overwhelming to start a food blog in 2021. I remember when I started my blog, it was such a daunting task to begin! Since my technical understanding has always been quite limited I was afraid of not being able to pull it off myself and pushed the project out as long as I could. Once I finally tackled it I realised it wasn’t that hard after all and I am sure you will have the same experience. Starting is always the hardest part. 

With this blog post I want to make it a bit easier for you. I won’t give you a million different options that you can use or do. However, I will simply recommend and share what I have done or know what good blogging friends of mine are doing. I will only recommend the best of the best and easiest solutions for you to set up for food blog in 2021. 

I also wanted to keep this blog post as shot as possible and exclude all unnecessary information. We will only look at the things you absolutely need when starting a food blog. Before we start off let me introduce you to my personal food blogging online course: Food blogging success! As Austrias biggest fitness food blogger I will be sharing all my secrets on turning your hobby into your dream job. Kickstart your food blogging career with one single course!

Where to host your food blog

Let’s start off with web hosting. Without a hosting provider you won’t have a website. So this is absolutely essential. I know of two hosting providers that are well known in the food blogging niche. One of them I am using myself and the other is was recommended to my highly from a lot my American food blogging friends. 

  • All-inkl. – If you come from a German speaking country this will be your goto hosting provider. I am using them myself and they have a free WordPress integration through their service, that make setting up your blog very easy. They have a killer customer service that will answer you no matter what time of day. Signing up is very easy and they have very fair pricing! On All-inkl. I have the private plan and it works really well for me. 

ALL-INKL.COM - Webhosting Server Hosting Domain Provider

  • Bluehost – This is an internationally renowned hosting provider. It also offers the 1-Click WordPress installation even gives you your domain for free for the first year! It has a 24/7 support team, which I have only heard good things about from my fellow blogging friends. Bluehost powers over 2 million websites world wide and they are very reliable. 
    How to start a food blog

Through the web host you will also receive your personal email address. This is something that will make you look way more professional than just using a .gmail or .hotmail address. 

Installing wordpress

Once you have found your web host Bluehost or All-inkl. you can install WordPress. Bluehost and All-inkl. both offer 1-click WordPress installations. Like this you can install it hassle-free on all accounts. Of course you can also code your own website, but since I am guessing you are like me and not the biggest tech-nerd I highly recommend you use WordPress. 

WordPress will be the home of your blog. This is the backend where you will be making changes to the design and layout of your website, write your blog posts and be installing plug-ins. 

This brings me to the next topic: finding the right theme for your blog. 

How to start a food blog

WordPress themes for food bloggers

The most important choice you will want to make is finding the right theme for your blog. If you don’t want to or can’t code your own website design themes are an awesome solution to have a beautiful website without getting to techy! 

When you start a food blog you have to make sure that you choose a theme that reflects being a food blogger. You will want a theme with nice header pictures and blog post previews that already give a sneak peek into the recipe. 

In WordPress there are many different themes to choose from. Some are for free and some you need to pay for. I am currently using the Olsen theme, which is a free template. I am not particular happy with it though and had to make a lot of changes in the back-end. So I wouldn’t really recommend my theme for food bloggers. If it wouldn’t be so much work going back and changing everything now I would pick a different one. 

how to start a food blog

If I could choose again I would probably pick one of the beautiful, feminine WordPress templates you find on Blossom themes. These are all SEO friendly, features-rich and easy to use WordPress themes! They even have one very specific one for food bloggers! It’s called Blossom recipe Pro! It’s the perfect theme for food bloggers as it really showcases the recipes well. You can also book their installation and setup service where they set up the entire theme for you. All you need to do is lay back and relax while your blog is being created. Definitely check them out now

Plug-ins you need as a food blogger

Once you have set up your WordPress you will want to install the most important plug-ins to have your blog running smoothly and optimize for SEO. 
Plug-ins can really help to customize the blog experience and improve website speed and search results! 

Here is a list of my favourite three plug-ins for food bloggers on WordPress: 

  • Pin it Button – As a food blogger you will want to encourage your readers to pin your awesome recipe photos to their Pinterest boards. The plug-in will show a pin it button once someone hovers over the picture. This makes it easy and convenient for your readers to save your recipes. 
  • Yoast SEO – In order to achieve high blog traffic and a good google ranking it is important to optimize your blog posts for search engines. This plug-in will help you exactly with that. Yoast will analyse the blog text and will give you helpful information on what to improve. It’s an absolute must have plug-in!  
  • WP Recipe Maker – as a food blogger it is absolutely ESSENTIAL to install a recipe plug-in. Not only because it formats the recipe better, but it also helps your blog post to show up higher in search results. You can even add a „jump to recipe“ button in the beginning of the blog post to make it even easier for your readers to find the recipe. I am now using WP Recipe Maker, but I also used Recipe Card in the past which is a bit more simple. I wasn’t very happy though with the search results coming from the Recipe Card plug-in, which is why I changed! 

Here is an example of a recipe card I make with the WP Recipe maker:

More useful tips for food bloggers

Now that you are all set-up you can start writing your first blog posts!

Let me leave you with another word of caution regarding starting a food blog in 2021. As food bloggers we absolutely love our wonderful, colorful pictures. When you upload them onto your website tough make sure to compress the quality!! Uploading huge file sizes will only make your website slow and google doesn’t like slow websites. I recommend to keep your image size under 150kb per picture! 

Another helpful tip is to always use your „hero photo“ aka. your best photo from the recipe in the beginning as an eye catcher. Don’t start your blog post with a photo of the ingredients or preparation steps in the process. Start with an amazing photo of the finished dish that will make everyones mouth water! 

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and will start your own food blog soon!

Most useful tools for food bloggers – tips & tricks!

ools for food bloggers

It’s been a while since I wrote a piece on how to become a better food blogger which is why I wanted to go in a more detailed article today on the best tools for food bloggers. Over the years as a professional food blogger I have learnt so much and wanted to share my knowledge with you. Like this you will be able to work more efficiently, see better results and drive more traffic to your pages. 

I will share some of the best tools I use as a food blogger that help me plan, organise and schedule my content. Operating on multiple channels like I do (TikTok, Instagram, YouTube & my blog) can be very challenging at times and it is absolutely essential in my opinion to have tools that will make your daily tasks easier. 

Over time I discovered some extremely powerful tools for food bloggers that helped me tremendously. I use them every day. I basically couldn’t live without them anymore and that’s why I want to recommend them to you as well. 

ools for food bloggers

Unum – plan ahead

I could not live without this app! If you follow my Instagram you will certainly already know that I color code my feed. This means I always pick a main color and arrange my photos around that color scheme. Color coding your feed is definitely something that will make you stand out and this is only possible with preplanning your feed. You will need to know exactly which photos will look good next to each other in order to create the perfect „orange“ or „pink“ feed. 

Take a look at this blog post on how to improve your feed with my best tips for Instagram aesthetics

Unum helps you to do exactly that. You can switch photos around to see what looks best next to each other. You can also pre-write the caption. This will save you so much time during the week if you just sit down for one hour a week to plan your gallery and pre-write all your captions. You only have to press upload and add the hashtags in Instagram and you are good to go! 

Instagram Aesthetics for a cohesive Insta feed

Canva – make outstanding designs

Canva is definitely one of the most useful tools for food bloggers! If you don’t want to buy the Adobe inDesign or some other expensive design tool, this will be your go to program! The basic version is free and really all I am using. 

It’s perfect for creating any kind of designs you need to promote your content. I use it to create my YouTube thumbnails, Insta story swipe ups, Pinterest Pins, flyers or anything else that comes to my mind. You can chose among thousands of different designs and so many fonts. Canva is so user-friendly and fun. 

You will want to use Canva definitely to create your personal Pins for your recipes. I always put them at the end of the blog post so people can save them to their favourite board on Pinterest. Like this you are giving them an easy way to save a beautiful picture! It reminds them of making the recipe and brings them right back to your blog. 

Here are some examples of Pins I did with Canva:

Kicksta – maximize your Instagram growth

Gaining followers on Instagram can be a time-consuming and tedious process. Especially in the beginning you will need to spend a lot of time liking and commenting other peoples pictures. It’s a social network – you need to be social to receive likes and comments in return!

Instagram growth services, like Kicksta, use specific methods such as liking photos posted by people in your target audience, following users in your audience or auto-commenting, to name a few, to get you more organic Instagram followers. This obviously saves you a lot of time on a daily basis!
Using a high quality service like Kicksta will avoid gaining robot followers and have you on your way to reaching your goal of becoming a big Instagram blogger. 

Tailwind – Boost your Pinterest traffic 

As a food blogger you simply have to use Pinterest! For me its one of the tools for food bloggers that bring the most traffic onto my website. 
If you have been using Pinterest in the past you might think it’s a lot of work and time consuming! Usually you should pin 10-15 new pins a day! With Tailwind this will become so easy. 

All you need to do is sit down for one hour every week and prepare the posts for the upcoming days. Tailwind makes it so easy to schedule hundreds of pins within such a short amount of time. You can group your boards and then pin similar pins to those boards without having to manually type in each individual board.

For example if I want to pin one of my healthy fitness recipes I schedule it for my „fitness food“ group board which entails 4 different Pinterest boards (keto food, low carb, fitness food, easy & healthy recipes). Instead of pinning it 4 times its only one click! 
It also has so many functions like smart loops and tribes. You can have your favourite and most popular blog posts run in a loop and be rescheduled automatically. Tribes are active Tailwind groups that help each other out by reposting the groups content to their own boards. 

I usually try to schedule 2-3 weeks ahead of time because then I can set and forget it! Being consistent on Pinterest will make such a huge impact on growing your traffic and Tailwind is the perfect tool to make this as easy as possible for you. When you sign up you get a trial period to test the tool for yourself. After that you can decide if you want to continue the paid membership. 

Here is what my Tailwind schedule looks like currently: 

Tailwind schedule tools for bloggers

Trello – organise your day

Trello is super practical why I think it is one of the most helpful tools for bloggers to organise their daily tasks. If you are like me you will have hundreds of ideas swirling around in your head and it would be best to do everything right away. Trello can help you to bring structure into your tasks and prioritise them in different lists. You can create individual tasks and add notes, comments, photos and links to each of them. 

For example I have only three different lists on my Trello account:

-Things to-do: Here I write done everything that comes to my mind that I need to do sooner or later. Ideas I have for promoting my content, new business projects or general to-do stuff. This is basically where I collect all the ideas that come on. 

– Today’s priorities: Here I pick a couple of important things out of my first list that I need to accomplish today! If I finished the task I move it to done and if I didn’t finish it it stays there until the next day. Be careful to not have too many things in this list and really only focus on todays priorities! 

– Done: This list is a collection of all finished projects. I use it as a reference if I need to look something up or have repetitive projects I need to move from done to to-do again after a while. 

Whats awesome about Trello is that you can have it on your phone as an app and also as a desktop version. So wherever you are and an idea comes to your mind you can simply write it down or mark it as done. 

Here a little screenshot of what my Trello looks like:

Audible – get your mindset right

Audible is probably not so much of a tool. However,  it is still a very important app for your personal and professional development. I love listening to Audible audiobooks because its the perfect way to learn new things and grow as a person. Most people think it’s only for romance novel, thrillers and other entertaining books. 

Audible makes it so easy to get your daily dose of new knowledge in. You can listen to the audio books on your way to work or university, anytime you spend waiting around for someone or doing mundane tasks that don’t need a lot of attention.

Here is a list of my favourite entrepreneurial and motivational books I have listened to on Audible! I totally recommend them to you:

  • Superfans – The Easy Way to Stand Out, Grow Your Tribe, and Build a Successful Business

  • You Are a Badass – How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

  • Influence – The Psychology of Persuasion

  • Unscripted – Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Entrepreneurship

When you sign up for Audible you even get a free book at the beginning and can cancel any time after that. So do yourself and your personality a favor and download one of those books which I recommended for free now!

How to become a successful food blogger

Ever wondered how to become a food blogger in 2020? Then let me give you a quick rundown of food blogging 101 and explain what it takes in order to start a food blog! I will be giving you many helpful tips and share some important insights of how to get started in the blogging sphere with you. 

What fuels you with passion?

Make sure to find a topic or niche that you are really passionate about. I am a fitness food blogger and since I have started my blog I did not have one day where I couldn’t think of a recipe I wanted to make. The ideas just keep coming and I could be in the kitchen everyday whipping up my next low carb or keto creation. I just have so much love and interest in what I do that the ideas keep coming. So, my tip for you is to really pick a topic that you know won’t get dull and boring after making 30 recipes. If you think you should be a vegan foodie because vegan food is trendy right now, but don’t eat vegan yourself or find it that interesting because you would rather eat juicy burgers and cheesy fries you will soon run out of motivation.

Setting you up for success

After having defined your niche and blogging topic you can start to set up your blog and Instagram account. These two platforms are the most important right now in my opinion. I get most partnerships over Instagram, a lot of them also requesting a package deal of a blog post and Instagram posting in combination. 

If you decide to start your own blog you will need a web host. I can recommend signing up with Bluehost! This is where you can buy your domain name (they have a one year for free offer right now) and get your email address. Bluehost also has a one-click WordPress installation, which makes starting your own food blog so much easier. Moreover, they have really great customer service, which is always important if you run into any troubles and need guidance. 

For my website I also use WordPress. This can be a bit challenging at first, but after a couple of hours you will get the hang of it. It lets you do much more than other sides with easier user interfaces like jimdo or wix. 

Regarding Instagram I recommend you open a business profile because this will give you much more access to interesting statistic. Also make sure your account is set to public and to to private! Start learning about how to grow on Instagram with my 10 top tips. You might also enjoy this YouTube video explaining some growth tips.

The right equipment for a food blogger

In order to take photos I really recommend you to get a DSLR camera. I shoot with a Nikon D750 which is great because of its speed and easy handling. If you are just starting out I recommend the D7500 with a 50mm 1.8 lens. Right now I am shooting with a 35mm 1.8 lens that takes beautiful photos as well. 

Besides camera equipment it is important to have a nice setup for your photos. It makes sense to get a backdrop paper or a big marble platter you can use for shooting. Gather some nice kitchen towels, cutlery, glasses, dishes and other fun deco items. 

I have an amazing blog post on „basic food blogging equipment“ that you should definitely have a look. It shows you the absolute basics you should acquire as a food blogger.

Food Styling

What can really set you apart from hobby bloggers is the way you style your food. Anyone can make a cake and take a photo of it. But to really draw attention to the shot you should master some basic skills of food styling. Decoration can make all the difference. Experiment with flowers, sprinkles, berries and so on to really add details and layers of interest to your photos. 

Here are two blog posts you simply need to check out:

Useful tools for a food blogger

There are some tools that make your life a lot easier when it comes to scheduling posts or designing layouts for your Pinterest. My favorite tools that I use all the time are: Canva, UNUM, Unfold, Lightroom, Hype Type, Mailerlite and Hyperlapse. 

  • With Canva you can design all kinds of awesome layouts. I use it to make my Youtube headers, Infographics and invitations and Pinterest graphics.
  • UNUM I use for scheduling my posts and planning my gallery. It is very useful to see how your future feed will look like! 
  • I edit all my photos in Lightroom. This tool literally makes all the difference and you should invest your money in it. 
  • Hypetype, Hyperlapse and Unfold are great tools to pimp your Instastory 
  • Mailerlite: this is my email marketing provider which I use to create email lists

Basic Food Blogging Equipment – what you need as a food blogger

Food Blogging Equipment

In today’s blog post I want to give you an overview over the basic food blogging equipment you need in order to start out as a food blogger. 

At first, beginning a food blog can be quite a big and daunting task at first. You have this big vision of taking awesome food pics and sharing your wonderful recipes? However, you are unsure of the equipment you need? Then look no further! In this blog post I have summarized all the basic things you need in order to start taking amazing pictures of your recipes. Food photography hacks included! 

We will look at topics like camera equipment, props, kitchenware and decoration items. I will only mention the essential food blogging equipment. Everything you need in order to start out. Nothing super fancy or advanced – just the basics to get you startet. 

How to photograph for your food blog

First things first. Let’s talk about camera equipment. When you are just starting out you might want to take photos with your camera. That is okay for the beginning. Most phone cameras have a „depth of field“ or „portrait“ mode already. Try using these as it will make the background blurry, which will look more professional. 

However, if you want to become serious about your food photography you should consider switching to a DSLR camera. It made all the difference for me and was a real game changer! For over three years I have been shooting with Nikon already and can highly recommend their cameras. Currently I am working with the Nikon D7500 which is a great camera also for beginners. Regarding the lens I am using a 35mm 1.8 lens. I like this lens because you can be pretty close to your dish and get a very nice blurry background. 

Here are some food photography tips for beginners: 

  • Shoot with natural, diffuse light
  • Using a flash for food photography is something I would not recommend as it distorts the colors in the picture.
  • Shoot on automatic mode until you become comfortable trying the manual mode
  • Use a portrait lens to get a nice bouquet effect
  • Invest in a reflector and tripod – this is the reflector and tripod that I am using

Food Blogging Props

You will want to acquire a little selection of different kitchenware. Buy some nice plates, bowls, platters, forks, knifes, glasses and jars. Try to stay consistent with the style and color of the props you buy. When taking food photos it is always nice to have different props to choose from. There is nothing more boring than always using the same plate and same set of silverware on every photo you take! 

I have probably up to 30 different plates, around 20 glasses, more little tea spoons than I can count and a couple different marble platters. This gives me a good choice to always arrange my food picture in a different style. Here are some of the spoons that I have ordered online:

Basic Food Blogging Equipment-2

Kitchen Towels and Background Fabrics

A range of different colored kitchen towels can’t be missed in your food photography equipment! Placing some kind of fabric on the area you are shooting makes it look smoother and blends together with the dish and the background. I like using kitchen towels for that. In the background I usually put a very smooth, silky white fabric to make the background blur out. 

Background fabrics for food photography

Food Blogging Equipment – Backdrops 

Having a nice surface to place your dish upon is very important when it comes to successful food blogging. That is why I bought varies backgrounds for my photos. I recommend to get a darker and a lighter one. Marble and wood work really well for food pictures. 

A great food photography tip is to go into your local hardware store and ask them for floor samples. These usually come in different awesome wood optics and I always ask them if I can take some samples home. Like this I have free background surfaces for my photos in different styles! 

Here are a couple links to some background papers that I have bought on Amazon, which are very practical because you can roll them up and take with you when traveling:

Decoration items

I believe that you can make the most boring chia pudding look incredible with the art of food styling. In order to be able to make your creations look unique I suggest you get some fun decoration items to add more layers of interest to your photo! Sprinkles, flowers or coconut flakes work great. I also bought some tiny little cookie cutters to decorate my dishes with. 

I recommend you also get seasonal decoration items to include in your food blogging equipment. For Easter I bought a couple of little Easter eggs, for Christmas I have golden stars and for Valentines Day heart postcards. 

Here are two deco items that I have ordered and like very much:

Before the final send off I dedicated a whole chapter to the topic of monetization. I’ll be sharing with you how to find your pricing rates and put together your media kit with great examples. We will talk about how to reach out to companies, negotiate prices and the important topic of disclosing a partnership.
