We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.

Here's the best advice we discovered for starting a food blog:

#1: Mason Woodruff, founder of Kinda Healthy Recipes:

We chatted with with Mason, founder of Kinda Healthy Recipes ($15K/month). In our interview, Mason says:

Perfect is the enemy of good. If I’d waited for perfection to start, I’d still be waiting.

Additionally:

As a creator, your core audience is the ultimate asset in your business. As they say, earning trust takes forever but destroying it takes seconds. If you’re unsure about a partnership, don’t do it.

#2: Lexi Harrison, founder of Crowded Kitchen:

We chatted with with Lexi, founder of Crowded Kitchen ($17K/month). In our interview, Lexi says:

There’s SO much that goes into a successful blog. Improving SEO is essentially a never-ending process, but there’s incredible potential to make huge ad revenue over time.

Additionally:

We haven’t ever had content go crazy viral on social media and gained 10k followers overnight, but we have been incredibly consistent over the last several years and have grown a high-quality organic audience as a result.

Further:

Do your research early on. Especially when it comes to SEO and website best practices! I’ve had to essentially re-write almost every single post on the blog (of which there are hundreds) more than once over the last few years.

#3: Brett Lindenberg, founder of Food Truck Empire:

We chatted with with Brett, founder of Food Truck Empire ($5.4K/month). In our interview, Brett says:

Starting a business is time consuming and insanely difficult even if you’re doing it full time. Take the hours you have left after work and focus them toward one thing.

Additionally:

When you start a blog, my belief is that you should outsource all the one time technical work, design, and setup. There are so many people that spend months wasting time trying to figure out plugins and Wordpress themes when they could have solved the problem for a couple hundred bucks and be off to the races.
