Besides the animosity, the point of this article is to outline what is possible by sharing recipes with the larger world. Having the opportunity to create food, a thing shared across all cultures is a fabulous position to be in. Furthermore, to gain monetary gains from something like that is quite beautiful, and lucrative to say the least. For example, Jamie Oliver, a world-famous chef celebrity, is known to have a net worth of around $200 million. Although he finds himself among the most famous of celebrities like Gordon Ramsay or Martha Stewart, it is still important to acknowledge that many smaller food blogs may be different in size, but not necessarily in essence. Both Jamie Oliver and the fabulous Tiffany Cooks quoted above, earn their income from creating recipe-related content.

As you can see. There are numerous amount of content creators, A.K.A food bloggers, generating a valuable livelihood. Some Food Bloggers listed above are still generating that revenue and more to this day. One of the many beauties of a Food Blog is that any content created on your website or social media continues to grow, or die, after posting it. Obviously, it is very important to continue to update your blog posts now and then with accurate information. Yet, the importance of a viral post, if it makes it to virality, is that it continues to grow long after posting. Take this post by Content Hacker, they claim that blog posts are capable of living on two years after being posted. That has fantastic results as it means that the amount of revenue that you generate can continue to live on long after you are done creating the content. They even claimed that;
