5 Essential Things Every Food Blogger Needs (Video Tutorial) - Becoming a food blogger requires much more than delicious food. Here's a video and a list of other items that are recommended in order to become a better blogger and run a successful post.

5 Essential Things Every Food Blogger Needs

Becoming a food blogger is a wonderful thing. I can’t imagine doing something else. Creating and inventing recipes from the heart is truly a dream come true. But let’s face it, there’s more to this job than cooking. From the time you develop a recipe to the moment it’s posted and amplified through social media channels, it can take hours or sometimes days.

As a new food blogger I’ve learned what things I need in order to perform better at my job. That’s why I’m so excited about RETURN time. Don’t know why everybody calls it tax time.. I am personally looking forward to get back a few dollars so I can invest it in becoming a better blogger. The first thing I am aiming at is a new lens for my DSLR camera, more specifically a lens with macro capabilities so I can capture every detail of my food without losing focus. Unfortunately, these lenses are pretty expensive but definitely worth it. If there’s some money leftover (hopefully there is), I will consider buying more props for my photos.. I am getting addicted to buying those, in fact I have to admit that I am getting a slight addiction for prop shopping.I visit every antique store, thrift store or discount store.. Can’t stop myself!
