The Single Most Successful Tool to Kickstart
a Better, More Creative Food Blog in 2017.
(And pssst!...It's FREE)
It all started when...
I realized I needed to restart my own blog. And that was a problem. Because I feared I'd lost my passion.
Though my daily schedule was full of food photography work for clients, every time I sat down to create a recipe for my own site, I'd stare at the blank page, paralyzed with toomanyideas and nospecificplacetostart. It was maddening.
Maybe I just wasn't a good food blogger.
But I started to pay attention to my creative output. And there, I found a pattern.
When creating recipes for clients, they always came to me with an idea. I had a starting point. A base on which I could build. And when there were boundaries, creativity would abound. But sit down to a blank page, and...nothing.
And you know what they say: you start with nothin', you end up with nothin'.
(They don't really say that. But when it comes to creativity: it's 1000% true.)
I realized, I needed to give myself limits. So...
I DECIDED TO TREAT MYSELF LIKE A CLIENT
Rather than letting my blog suffer beneath a wild work schedule, rather than letting my creativity rot beneath a rollercoaster of rando whims, I decided it was time to give myself...limits.
Daily prompts designed to kickstart daily creativity.
So I sat down and started researching. If I was going to treat myself like a client, I would need a schedule of seasonally-appropriate, on-trend ideas. Organized and easy-to-follow.
And, if I was going to do it right, I might as well do it realllllly right. So all of these idea-starters shouldn't just be on-season and on-trend. They should be ready for my blog 1 month before holidays and hot topics hit. Pushing my new content live just in time for it to ride the wave of popularity straight to virality.
It took hours of researching, organizing, trend-watching, idea-hunting, recipe reading, concept formulating and pulling-it-all-together-ing. For days (and more than a few midnights) I sat at my kitchen table, fueled by pots of coffee spiked with heavy cream, hair wild like Einstein (this happens when you get realllly into doing a project right, and refuse to shower or sleep until the wave of creative insanity is ridden all the way to the ebook store)...
AND THE #365RECIPE PROMPTS CALENDAR WAS BORN
But keeping it all for myself wasn't enough.
For creativity to bloom, it needs boundaries...
For goals to happen, you need accountability...
For accountability to happen, you need people...
And so, I decided it was only right to share this calendar with my people. (That's you.)
If you're here and reading this, I'm hoping it's because you've been wanting to build a better blog. And you just don't know how to do it all, organize it all, drive traffic, become the kind of blogger that companies want to hire, make money, make magic, make waves.
