Should You Build Your Own Food Blog or Hire Somebody to Do It for You?

As you have probably noticed, blog-writing at the moment is serious business, and that trend is only going to continue for the foreseeable future.


There is a lot of potential money to be made from blogging, and many businesses now utilize it as a powerful marketing and advertising tool. You yourself may have been toying with the idea of starting your own blog, which can create a bit of an issue.

You see, a lot of new bloggers find themselves struggling over whether they should build a blog themselves, or whether they should hire a professional to do it for them. If you've been struggling to decide over which would be best for your new food blog for example, here's a look at a few pros and cons of hiring a professional, or doing it yourself.

Hiring a professional

First off, we'll begin by looking at the pros and cons of hiring a professional to build a food blog for you:

Pro: You save time – One of the best things about hiring a professional to build your blog is that you will save time. This is because they do the work for you. This will then give you more time to start gathering ideas for content and looking for inspiration of what your first food-related post could be.

Con: Costs money – Perhaps the most obvious con associated with hiring a professional blog writer/builder is the fact that it will cost money. They so say that you have to spend money to make money but even so, if you are on a very tight budget, this is something that you will need to consider.

Pro: They do it for a living – Another awesome reason to hire a professional to build your blog for you is the fact that they do it for a living. Because of this, you can rest pretty easily, safe in the knowledge that your blog is in safe hands. They know how to build blogs and create content, so the finished product will not only be efficient, it will also look professional as well.

Building a blog for yourself

Now we'll look at some pros and cons associated with building a blog yourself.

Pro: You know your message – Remember, as this is your blog, you know exactly which content you want to create, and which message you would like to get out there to your readers. This can then be put to good use when you create the content, as you know exactly what needs to be written and posted.

Con: time-consuming – If you do decide to build a food blog yourself, one major drawback is the fact that it will be very time-consuming when you first start to get it up and running. You will need to look into the different strategies for building a blog, you'll need to come up with a name, register a domain, create the content, edit, add images, and so on. If you don't have much free time on your hands, it may be best to hire somebody to build your blog for you.

Pro: Save money – If your funds are limited, building your blog yourself is a great way of saving money. While it is tough and time-consuming, if you are willing to put in the work, and learn as you go, you can build a blog yourself, and save yourself heaps of money in the process.

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose


Soul Singer Rosie La Posta who goes under the moniker of December Rose releases the ballad Hanging On. Finding a vocal style of her own, she hits all the notes effortlessly. You can hear past influences but she still keeps contemporary. Think Andra Day'smega smash Rise Up. As far the inspiration behind the song, Rosie says, "Besides the grief of a crumbling relationship, the hardest part in moving on is realizing neither person ever really closed the door. 'Hanging On' really paints the melancholy of the process." She first made waves her first single "Ball Game" which received a New Artist Spotlight award and was featured on AOL/Slacker Radio's "New Pop First" channel. Give it a stream.

Can you tell us a bit about your new song Hanging On?

For sure! So 'Hanging On' is about the "elephant in the room" everyone is ignoring. The relationship is crumbling, no one's letting go and closing the door to that chapter in their lives. The song carries listeners through the reminiscing sweet encounter and desperate plea for truth to set them free.

How would you describe your sound?

Always the hardest question to answer!! haha With all the new music I've been working on, there's been a huge musical maturation. With that said, there is a lot of influence of different genres, but to keep it simple, I'd say Adele meets One Republic, meets Gavin DeGraw, meets Amy Winehouse.

What's your song writing routine like?

This has evolved a ton over the years and still haven't really found a routine. My most creative moments are usually in the mornings, in the shower, and while on public transit around the city. Super random!!! I think on average these are the times my mind has the freedom to just think about anything. So, little melodies or song concepts might come to mind, or lyrics. Sometimes on a great day, all of these things come together at the same time. Little by little I build it. I don't force the song to come together in one day if it's not there. I let the idea "sit on the slow cooker" until it's ready (can be super quick or super long).

Are you playing any shows soon?

With the holidays approaching, no shows for the rest of 2018, but booking for 2019 already so all that information will be up on my website shortly. (
