Today you’re in for a special treat, it’s time for our second Blog Talk Episode. How fun! The series is called Blog Talk and today specifically is this: Blog Talk: Social Media Live. The purpose of Blog Talk is to get into the behind-the-scenes questions of the business of food blogging. Read below for more information on today’s episode. If you’re into the business of blogging, you should check out my post on the Three Revenue Models for Food Bloggers or my interview with Casey of Kitchen-Play on the Business of Blogging.
So, we’re back with another episode of Blog Talk. This is a new series on The Chopped Podcast, but it received so much positive reviews, we had to come back with episode two! Blog Talk consists of Marly and Trevor (see links below) talking about your questions on food blogging; the behind-the-scenes kind of questions. These are the questions you’d love to ask but just don’t know who or how to ask. Or maybe you’ve been pondering a question for a long time but hesitated to ask it for fear you might sound…stupid!
Rule #1 of Blog Talk: There are no stupid questions in Blog Talk.
Here’s a favorite quote that came out of today’s Blog Talk: Social Media Live:I really would love to see food blogging become this very esteemed and very valid profession and one way to do that is to lead with integrity. Click To Tweet
