On this episode, Karen and Cadie are back in the studio together, and they are talking to food blogger, Instagram influencer, photographer, and wanna-be podcaster Amanda “Birdie” Gibson of the Lemon Baby food blog. Stuffed with Amanda’s own original recipes, food photography, and thoughts on Gulf Coast cuisine, Lemon Baby, is an online blog created to educate and demystify the ingredients, instructions, and dishes that everyday people think are too complicated to make. Have you ever wanted to know how a blogger gets started and makes money? Amanda shares her secret recipe for getting started in blogging, content marketing, and online writing.
Lemon Baby is a labor of love side hustle for this college professor, advertising copywriter, and full-time Mom.
