We are a community built especially for food bloggers — and the home cooks who love them.
Online and in our magazine, you’ll find a growing collection of recipes, cooking ideas and foodie inspiration — as well as practical tips for growing a blogging hobby into a booming business.
We are here for the kitchen creator: those of you who take everything that is best about cooking traditions and then go and leverage the revolutionary self-publishing opportunities of the internet so you can share, inspire, and motivate us to get in the kitchen and get cooking.
We know you as everyday people who can cook, but with a special gift to share. We have tried your recipes and tasted your food, and we believe you are truly stars of the cooking world.
Our larger vision at FoodBlogs and Grateful Ventures is to help bloggers and creators take their brands beyond the blog with print publication features, event appearances and USA TODAY spotlight promotion opportunities. Under the USA TODAY umbrella, we’re working to develop FoodBlogs.com into a helpful, welcoming community built especially for food bloggers and their fans. Our mission is to make this a resource for your voices to be heard, your recipes to be seen and your site to grow.
We recognize the immense value of your tireless efforts in your home-based test kitchens to make meals and treats that are easier, faster, tastier, more unique and clever, more diet-friendly and/or budget-conscious.
Your food blogging has changed the way America cooks — and for that we are grateful!
We’re elevating the food blogger profile
Pinterest “In the Making” Creators Conference
In 2018, Pinterest held its first creators conference, co-hosted by Grateful Ventures. At “In the Making,” an exclusive, invitation-only event, over 250 bloggers, influencers and high-profile Pinners gathered at the Pinterest corporate offices in downtown San Francisco where they shared their personal stories, expert advice and best tips for growing and finding success on Pinterest. With keynote speakers, brands, and personalities all coming together, it was an exceptional and unique opportunity for some of the biggest names in the online space to network offline.
USA TODAY Wine & Food Event Series
Grateful Ventures was also a sponsor of the USA TODAY Wine and Food Experience series, hosting the Grateful House tent at 11 locations nationwide in 2018. Guests of the event, including industry influencers and food bloggers, joined us to participate in an interactive culinary experience, featuring cooking classes, music, art and entertainment.
On December 1, 2018, food scientist and blogger, Jessica Gavin, took the culinary stage at the Wine and Food Experience in Los Angeles.
