Staring at your blog for dayyzz isn’t getting you anywhere. You’ll hit writer’s block, your inspiration will go stale, and you’ll experience marketing burnout.
It’s time to step outside your comfort zone! Move from the couch to your KITCHEN table. Go crazy– change into a different pair of pants even! You know, maybe dark jeans instead of light.
Either way, check out some other food bloggers and get motivated.
So, yeah. Here are the best food blogs to follow If you want inspiration on how to…
Cook with intention and thought | Sunday Suppers
Six years ago, photographer Karen Mordechai gathered a few friends in her apartment for dinner, socializing, and toasting. Since then, her Sunday Supper concept has evolved into a 1500 square foot studio for communal cooking and private events.
As soon as you hit her gorgeous, minimalist homepage that showcases the allure of using a simple wordpress theme, you feel an instant rush of calmness. Scrolling through her bright and clean photography reminds me of pranayama. The style inspires you to slow down and enjoy the process of cooking, from the selection of healthy ingredients to thoughtful wine pairings.
While some of her ingredients may intimidate a novice cook, the recipes are short, concise, and easy-to-follow. For example, this Risotto and Charred Radicchio with Meiomi Wine is inventive yet simplistic.
Want to explore all the possibilities of being a food blogger? Karen has a shop, blog, a NY Times Top Cookbook of the Year, and hosts events — impressive.
Be sweet, healthy, and successful | Chelsea’s Messy Apron
In contrast to Karen, Chelsea’s blog is down-to-earth, personable, and bright. And despite the messy apron, her website is well-organized and clean.
Chelsea has a degree in Exercise and Wellness, so her recipes are a fun balance of healthy, easy, and chocolate.
Currently, we’re drooling over her 7 Layer Bars — the image of melted chocolate is enough to make you give up healthy eating FOR LIFE. Her blog posts combine video tutorials, insights into how she created the recipe, and printable instructions.
Want to learn her secrets? Chelsea published a book that spills the beans on how she made $40K in her first year of blogging. While we personally haven’t read the book, you can learn more about it here.
