At the moment this is a non-comprehensive, partially annotated list of resources for food bloggers. I’ve been meaning to make something like this for a while, and I’ve decided I don’t want to wait until it’s “perfect” to hit publish as I think it could help aspiring food bloggers get started faster than I did. So for now, it’s an unpolished work-in-progress.
Watch this space for new additions and feel free to ask if you’re looking for something specific. Who knows, I might even reorganize it to spice things up. Do you feel the spontaneity?!
Food Blogger Pro is hosting a freeeeee event taking you inside Pinch of Yum’s Instagram playbook! This event will mark the opening of (indefinite!) Summer enrollment for FBP, but I can tell you from experience that these evens are incredibly helpful and so not spammy. You’ll get great info even if you don’t join!

A great placed to get started with blogging (especially food blogging!) is Food Blogger Pro. I’m a member of their awesome community, and I’ve learned SO much since joining. Bonus: the feeling of community in the forums and live Q&As is vital for me as someone who spends so much time at my laptop building my blog at home.
Food Blogger Pro is run by the creators of Pinch of Yum, one of the most well-known food blogs out there. Lindsay, Bjork & their FBP team are honest and generous—this isn’t some make 7-figures in your first year of business clickbait. I hope you appreciate that as much as I do!
This is a paid service and you can definitely still have a food blog without it, but I can tell you from experience, having a roadmap makes things much faster and smoother.
Note: If you sign up for a yearly subscription you can get one year of access to Nutrifox, a new service that makes embedding nutrition labels in your recipe posts super-easy.
Here’s a sneak-peek at some of the video topics you can find at Food Blogger Pro.
