About the Confessions of Food Blogger’s Interview Series

Before I tell you how this video is going to answer the burning question: how to be a food blogger on Instagram, I want to tell you a little bit about this series.

As a fellow food blogger, I’m right there in the trenches with you. I know how much work it is to build your food blogging business. And I also know that none of us can be an expert in everything.

That’s why I want to facilitate us learning from one another. And that’s what this Confessions of a Food Blogger and – specifically — this Interview Series is all about.

How to Be a Food Blogger on Instagram

Sara and I sat down a couple of months ago to talk about all things Instagram. Particularly as it applies to food blogging.

Sara has had a great deal of success growing her Instagram account to over 60,000 followers in a relatively short amount of time. She maintains a high engagement rate by showcasing enticing food photography and mouth-watering reels. So, it’s only natural that I would want to pick her brain.

We talk about a lot in this one-hour interview, discussing things like:

  • How do I promote my food on Instagram?
  • How do food bloggers get followers on Instagram?
  • Do food bloggers get paid on Instagram?
  • How do you grow a food business on Instagram?
  • What should beginners post on Instagram?
  • What are the 5 steps to being successful on Instagram?

If you’re a food blogger (or even if you’re not), I think there’s a lot to be gained by watching or listening to this entire interview. But if you need more convincing, here’s a little taste (pun intended) of Sara’s take on how to be a food blogger on Instagram.
