I’m never sure how much to write so it’s just enough or when to stop so it’s not too much. I don’t back up my blog until I have a really big scare when my site goes down and I get prickly heat and I’m convince it will never come back. I procrastinate about answering the hard emails. I have a hard time working ahead and I don’t keep a strict editorial calendar because when I do, I usually blow it because of my recipe whims. I suck at SEO. And I really suck at accounting. I do however remember to save all of my work related receipts. Thanks dad, you can’t say I didn’t listen to you.
Hello, I’m Heidi and I’m a blogger. But obviously not a very efficient one.
These are just some of the reasons a bevy of food bloggers descended upon Miami, FL for the 2014 BlogHer Food conference, to learn from those in the know and get secret insight to the magic that will make us all work smarter. harder. better.
Me, not looking in the camera but instead at an invisible spider on the wall, Lauren of Climbing Grier Mountain, Annalise of Completely Delicious and Cassie of Bake Your Day
But like nearly every conference I’ve been to, I end up learning a lot more from my fellows in the field, my blogging buddies in the line of fire with the oven burns to prove it. Comrades who I can ask questions of and advice on how in the heck to do it all.
I did come home with a few takeaways I’m happy to share with you here.
So not to bore my non-food blogging friends, my Blogher blogging tips are at the end of this post.
First up, my list of this week’s foodie crushes in the form of my Friday Faves.
