For those of you wanting to know exactly how I edit photos, I made a PSD just for you! It should help a lot with Photoshop editing.

The PSD basically has most of the levels, curves, brightness and contrast already adjusted. Just follow the directions written when you paste your photo there.

A few important notes:

Sharpen the image by going to Filter->Sharpen. That cannot be done beforehand, so you need to do it for each image. Continue reading

Food Blog Income and Traffic Report: November 2013

Income Report for November 2013 (Month 2)

Google Adsense: $60.82
Lijit: $8.98
Total Income:: $69.8

This is something I’ve seen at Pinch of Yum, that has really really inspired and helped me. Divinehealthyfood.com is a website I started in September, but before that, I had been working on a series of recipes on another website, Divineglowinghealth.com.

However, I noticed that it wasn’t working as well because that site was about so many different topics that it was hard for people to navigate, so I started this to share mainly vegan recipes (with occasional posts about vegan food/food blogging).

Since then, I’ve found that having a site dedicated to one subject really really helps, as people tend to return more, and I find that more people join the fan pages and such.

Note: I may not be posting an income report every month, but I will do it when I really have something major to share.

Plan on Notepad

I have a notepad called “Tomorrow_Plan.txt” and I literally just stuff it full of information. Anytime I get an inspiration or idea, I will write it down. Sometimes, I even create prototype recipes, such as I want to make a cookie, so I write down the amount of ingredients I think I need. The more stored up information there is, the easier it is to go through them and pick something out.

My notepad started off with just planning for tomorrow but somehow, there’s now so much information I think I’d be set for the next three years! Continue reading

Be Inspired

First thing you may wonder is, how the heck do I come up with all these articles each day? Do I ever run out? The answer is, yes. Of course! I’m no superhuman and I do have my limits, but I know when I get inspired, I won’t stop. The key, I believe, to blogging is to find your inspiration. Whatever may it be, let it flow all over you. I personally get inspired by similar websites, talking to people, and most of all, working towards a goal or dream. If I didn’t get inspirations, then I would’ve quit a long time ago. Continue reading
