Hi!! For those that don’t know me, I’m Lindsay! I live in Dallas, Texas with my husband, Alessandro and my fluffly, short-legged, snuggly, mini golden doodle, Knox. I started this blog a little over a year ago when two of my hobbies collided–cooking & photography. I was already cooking and already taking photos of my creations, so why not share it with the foodie world?
I didn’t know a single thing about starting a blog until I actually decided to start a blog.. imagine that! I googled “how to start a blog” and took it from there, so I promise you can do it, too. I’ve had so many people ask me how to go about starting a food blog, so i’ve written up a step by step process to get you started on your blogging journey!

3. INSTALLING WORDPRESS: After you have chosen your domain name and signed up for web hosting, the next step is actually creating your blog! I use wordpress for Tippsinthekitch.com, and it’s been nothing but great! You can install for free on the Bluehost website.
You will also need to choose a theme for your website, which can range anywhere from $0-$130 depending on the feel you are going for. You can definitely start with one of the free themes, and can always change it down the road depending on how you’re liking the look/feel of your site. My blog uses a Studiopress theme on the Genesis Framework. All studiopress themes are beautiful, clean, and easy to navigate which is why I went with the Foodie Pro Theme. I personally love the clean feel and thought it was perfect for my blog. Thesis and Elegant themes work great, too!
