5 Tips For Becoming a Successful Food Blogger

Corey’s ‘Gram: “I started my account at the beginning of 2015 when I was nannying. At the time, I noticed food accounts popping up, had a lot of free time on my hands and decided—why not start my own!”

Tip 1 | Network

Network with people you share interests with! Instagram is the perfect place to do this.

Tip 2 | Let There Be Light

Natural lighting is your best friend.

Tip 3 | Be Yourself

Show your personality and be yourself through stories, captions and photos.

Tip 4 | Rev-up Your Creativity

Don’t be afraid to evolve. I am constantly striving to post content that gets me out of the box!

Tip 5 | Grit Through

Don’t get discouraged. Without challenges, there is no actual success.

Corey’s Favorite Instagram Accounts:

“They all keep it real—sharing their ups and downs. As much as it has become somewhat of a buzzword as of late, I just love following people that exude authenticity.”
