Tell us a little bit about you, Brittany Mullins, and what you do.
I’m a health coach, personal trainer, and the blogger behind Eating Bird Food. I started blogging about 8 years ago.
What has been your most proud moment so far in the past 8 years?
Most recently, this year I was invited to the White House as part of an event with Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative. It was a group of a hundred bloggers, and the first lady spoke about all the headway that’s been made to fight childhood obesity. I felt really proud to be invited to the White House.
How do you keep up recipe creation and inspiration?
A lot of my recipes come from recipes that my mom used to make when I was little that I love. My mom made a lot of Southern food, so I’ve tried to make those recipes healthy. I get inspired by going out to eat or going to Whole Foods or places like that where I have a meal that I love. I often try to make restaurant meals a little bit healthier at home or make something that inspired me at Whole Foods. I also use reader requests.
What have you done that has really helped your online business?
I think that the biggest piece for me is creating relationships with other bloggers.
How did you approach building relationships?
I joined some Facebook type groups, and I also connected with other bloggers who I liked reading their blogs, I was like maybe I’ll reach out to them, send them an email saying like, “I love what you’re doing,” and kind of just go from there.
What do you think would be your best piece of advice for someone who is just starting out in the food industry?
Get started today. Don’t wait until everything is perfect.
My other big piece of advice is don’t view other bloggers as competition.
