Food Bloggers: 150+ Links to Everything You Need to Know

This post may contain affiliate links.


I’m always looking for good information in regards to tips and tricks on how to make my blog successful, and I get an awful lot of emails asking for advice on food blogging.  So here’s a round-up of fabulous tips and tricks from fabulous food blogs and elsewhere that have been very helpful to me.  There’s an enormous amount of talent in the food blogging world, and when everyone contributes their expertise, it’s appreciated and helpful.  I’m happy to share with you… 150+ links for pretty much everything you want to know about food blogging.


  • After having MANY problems with some of the big name companies, I opted for using a smaller company called YellowFiber Networks (great, quick, responsive service, they know WordPress- and they keep my site up and running with few, if any, problems!)
  • Other recommended hosting companies from blog friends: Liquid Web  and BlueHost

 

  • The Importance of Blog Backups by The Blog Maven
  • Carbonite (I used to use Carbonite before I got a MAC.  This company does not back up external hard drives)
  • CrashPlan (This is what I use to back up all of the content on my MAC.  I love Crashplan because it backs up external hard drives too…and the cost is reasonable.  I bought a plan for all of the computers in my house, and it was about $150 for a year with unlimited computers).  My hosting company auto backs-up my blog content daily.
  • Sucuri:  I don’t use this one, but a lot of people have recommended it for malware detection, cleanup and protection.
  • Last Pass:  Remembers ALL of your passwords for you, so you don’t have to.  I have this, and it has been a lifesaver.

    Hi Lori,

    On the “Nutritional Fact Links” section you should also include Newtrien.com, a nutrition facts label maker for food bloggers 🙂

    Have a very nice day!

    Lori, under “Security,” you have listed Carbonite for your blog backup. Hate to tell you this but I have Carbonite and just called them; they informed me that they do not back up blogs, that they cannot “backup the internet.”

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      right- as stated, Carbonite backs up computer content, and hosting companies will usually do daily/weekly blog backups for you. I use Crashplan to back up my computer content now- and I love it because it will back up exterior hard drives too.
