Today, Kelli and Crystal have Tiffany King, from Eat at Home Cooks, to give you Blogging tips for foodies and non-foodies. In this hour long video, Tiffany will show you how to find your niche, what to write about and who to write to. When writing, Tiffany says to ask the question, “Whose problem are you solving,” i.e. gluten free recipes or weight watchers.
Tiffany will show you how your photography should reflect your blog niche, using simple props for everyday food or if you are a gourmet site, you would use more formal props and she will share what she uses in this video.
Tiffany uses Picmonkey for most of her editing along with Photoshop and a point and shoot camera.
Using simple props with good lighting will make all the difference on your images for pinterest and your blog posts. She also shares what to add to your photos and the right size to make them more pinnable.
Great quote from Crystal this week: You can spend thousands OR you can take a path that is more budget friendly and still have a VERY successful blog!
This video is for the foodie and the novice alike.
