Food blogging is something so exciting and beautiful. Sharing your best recipes, food photography, and delicious meals you discovered while exploring the world.  Out of all blogging niches, food blogging is my favorite too.  Your food blog can be a place to share your new recipe creations with the world and improve your photography skills to inspire your audience to live a happy and healthy life!

But listen. My setup is what I believe to be the easiest and best solution, which will help you start a blog that you can grow and nurture and which can help you build a life that you love.

How to Start a Food Blog in 2020 (Hosting + Setup)

To start a Food Blog in 2020 (a website), you need three things:

 

1. Blog Hosting 

Your blog hosting is where your website is stored and managed on the internet. For this, you will need the help of a service called Siteground. You can start a WordPress Blog at SiteGround for no less than $3.95/month. 

 

2. Blog Domain

The second thing you need is a domain. Your domain is your blog name a.k.a, your domain name, a.k.a, your URL. The great thing is that if you don’t have a domain name yet, you can get it together with your hosting directly at Siteground for about $13.95/year. We will set this up in the video tutorial together as well.

 

3. WordPress (CMS – Content Management System)

Once we have set up our hosting and domain, we can pretty much forget about it. Awesome right. Once you set this up, we will spend all our time in WordPress. WordPress is the backend of your Blog. It’s where you create your amazing recipe posts, upload your images and video, and so on. Even better news! WordPress is free. We also set up WordPress together in the video below.

 

Now, this is it. That’s what you need to start a blog. These are your two non-negotiables when it comes to cost. And I know you can find 50 bucks somewhere to change your life for the better.

Everything else you can add later, you can get for free or upgrade and buy if you want to.

So this is it, are you ready? Amazing, let’s do this. Let’s now set up your food blog together in the next 10minutes:

3. After that, please fill in your contact and billing information.

4. After successfully filling in your information, you will now need to set up your WordPress account. Just follow SiteGround’s instructions, or if something does not work, ask for help in the live chat here. 

 

5. Now that SiteGround has successfully set up your hosting, domain, and WP Blog, we can forget about it for now and switch over to WordPress. WordPress is your Content Management system. This just means it’s where you will spend most of your time creating and designing your amazing Mom Blog.
