How To Start a Blog
Ever since I started my own blog, I have been getting messages from SO many friends and readers asking for help to start their own blogs…and I totally understand why; getting started can be frigging COMPLICATED you guys! I know I definitely struggled (that’s putting it lightly) when I was first starting out, and spent many a night frustrated and on the brink of giving up. I really wish there was a simplified, clear guide I could’ve followed to save me all the hours wasted in confusion and dumb mistakes. Mine was FAR from a smooth road, and I think it’s about time I did my part to make sure your experience is hopefully less bumpy!
These suggestions and recommendations are based purely on my own personal experience, and on what I truly believe to be the best options out there for running a successful blog – be it food or otherwise – without spending too much time, effort or money on the boring technical stuff, and focusing on the fun creative parts instead!
