The Economics of Food Blogging

The blunt truth is there is not much money to be made writing food blogs. You do it as a labor of love and have a day job that pays the bills.

That's why it's so shockingly obvious when a former food blogger goes "rogue".

They start advertising specific products or specific items. Which is truly bogus.

If you want to make truly great food then you need top of the line items. That is hardly surprising. However, it is not true that you need a specific top of the line item. There is enough competition in any field that as long as you have a really good supplier, you will do extremely well.

Incidentally, there's not much money to be made doing "food trucks" either. That's why most "food truckers" sell the truck the moment they get the first book deal.

With such blunt truths, the CC doesn't envision a ton of advertisement revenue in his future. If he earns even a single penny, he will scan it and show it to the world.
