Announcing Food Blogger Camp 2011 – Riviera Maya, Mexico

by on November 4, 2010

Food Blogger Camp is back folks and we’ll be learning the basics of food blogging on sun filled, cocktail laden beaches again.

Last years Food Blogger Camp 2010 in Ixtapa Mexico was a success with a wonderful gathering of food bloggers from around the world.

Back by popular demand, Food Blogger Camp is returning once again and this time, we’ll all be learning on the sandy white beaches of Riviera Maya at Grand Velas Riveria Mexico. It’s a vacation workshop!
We’re excited to be presenting two dynamic food photography sessions where we’ll be leading groups on two hands on food photo breakout sessions! There will be plenty of one-on-one time with our participants.

  • Jaden Hair from Steamy Kitchen – Two sessions on The Business of Blogging: How to develop a personal brand around yourself and your blog & monetization strategies

Wow, this sounds amazing! I need all the help I can get, after attending BlogHer Food in San Francisco I realized there is so much to learn. You are both so talented with a wealth of helpful information. I am going to do everything I can to hopefully attend this event. Thank you to both of you for giving your time and passing on your knowledge.

Oh to be 20 years younger! Sounds fun – but since I STILL can barely do a post I’m going to have to pass – IF I get a brain transplant I’ll come! Love the new look of your blog – and really, you know I love everything you do! Rice pudding with butterscotch sauce?!? Now that’s Serious! xo, Nan

I’m new to food blogging – but I’m really enjoying it and look forward to growing.

When I first saw the name of this blog I thought it was sort of a joke – but it’s beautifully done with great pictures and recipes that look amazing. Thanks so much.
