That’s what so many people have said to me over the years. I know that the first step of launching a new site can feel so overwhelming. That’s why I’ve created guided lessons to help you take every single step from idea to successful launch. Launch Your Dream Food Blog is the food blog course for you.
Hi! I’m Rachel Cunliffe of Cre8d Design, with 13 years experience designing custom WordPress themes – specializing in food blogs. I work with the best foodies in the biz including David Lebovitz, Marion Nestle, Chocolate and Zucchini, Once Upon a Chef, Cooking Classy, Natasha’s Kitchen, The Naptime Chef, Karen & Andrew, Alexander Lobrano and many more.
I’m also a mom to four aged 1, 3, 5 and 7. I totally get your concerns about being able to find time to start something new when your kids are finally in bed and your brain feels fried.
I know the challenges that new and seasoned food bloggers face, all the things you need to avoid doing, and all the things you need to do.
Have you been wondering “why do all their blogs look so nice and clean and organized. How do I get to have a popular blog like that?” Maybe you have been Googling for “How to start a food blog” and found all sorts of tutorials.
Here’s the thing though: one blog post isn’t thorough enough to take you all the way from that dream in your head to a live website. You need someone to turn to who knows how to get you unstuck in the process. You need a lifesaver to stop hours of frustration and truthfully, a few tears.
There’s plenty of general WordPress courses out there, but they’re not geared toward food bloggers, the specific skills you need, and the tasks you need to focus on. And, what’s with them. They’re so sterile… “do this, then this, then click on this”. I get sleepy even thinking about those videos.
Maybe you’ve even tried in the past to start a food blog but have struggled with getting the layout you want.
What you would love is someone to give you tons of actionable tips and insights into food blogging, as well as handling that techie stuff for you.
That’s why I took my thousands of hours experience working with food bloggers to create Launch Your Dream Food Blog: I’ll be there helping you get to your goal each step of the way.
Stop spending wasted hours on Google and in Facebook groups looking for answers, piecing together solutions, frustrated and pulling out your hair over techie stress and being so afraid to mess up with code.
