Tips for Starting A Food Blog with @YumSideOfLife

One of last week's #GoodVibes live guests was food blogger Roanna Delos Santos from @TheYumSideofLife! Roanna began her food blog our of a quest to find what makes her happy. In cultivating her passion, she also found purpose: connecting her audience with the small family-owned restaurants she loves to help support local business.


A little more about Roanna: She lives in North Dallas, and officially started blogging January of 2019. With the encouragement of her friends, she started sharing her foodie finds on a dedicated Instagram page. She initially had no idea what it meant to be a food blogger, yet through education and networking has grown her following and connections within the community within months.
