Blogging is a popular trend nowadays and more than a passion, it has become a successful career that people get money from. A food blog can be an excellent way for you to combine your food passion with this new online trend that can help you increase your income from at home. Here is how you can make money from a food blog and enjoy it.


First things first. What is a food blog, you might ask? Similar to a fashion blog or a travel blog, it is a website that shows detailed recipes and reviews for certain foods or appliances used in creating a recipe so that simple people who are passionate about food can learn new cooking tips and tricks and discover delicious recipes. Cooking has become a sort of art that creates stunning recipes so a food blog requires plenty of work in arranging the food and taking great photos. All this requires money that you can make if you know how to manage your food blog.

Website advertising

Most of the money coming from a food blog is through advertising various companies on your website. Every click your website gets means money and the more clicks, the more money you make. You can also receive money if your visitors click the actual link to the advertised company’s page, which means they could become their own customer.

Paid sponsorship

Paid sponsorship also brings you money, besides the products you can freely use during your blogging sessions. If for example, you are using a microwave oven to cook your recipes, the manufacturer can enjoy advertising and can become your sponsor for your blog. This is a win-win situation that is very popular among blogs of all kinds. If you want to work with a certain company, don’t be afraid to ask them and to offer them more details on what you do. Given that you will want to earn money from your food blog, feel free to ask for payments.

Website content

If you create content for other companies’ websites, magazines, or blogs, you can earn money as well. You can create recipes for various sites and write content that the companies can publish so you will increase your incomes. Sometimes, the companies can come to you for assistance but in many cases, you need to contact them if you want to write them content.

Affiliate programs

Another way to make money from your food blog would be to become an affiliate for a website server that will host your blog. The trick is to redirect visitors from your food blog to the server’s own website and you will receive money for each redirected client.
