Here are some resources if you are thinking about starting a food blog.
I use WordPress for my website. It’s easy to learn and there are lots of themes and plugins available. For hosting my website I use InfoQuest’s WordPress web hosting.
A favorite plugin for SEO is Yoast. They have some good posts too. Be sure to check them out.
I use EasyRecipe PLUS for my recipes. It’s decent. Could use some improvement and I spoke with the author late 2017 and they have plans for some good updates that I’m looking forward to in 2018.
I’ll list more plugins as I determine which ones I’m going to use.

There are lots of themes available.
This is the theme I purchased and use for the site. They have many demos set up showing how this one theme can be customized. It includes a lot of widgets though I’ve gotten away from using most of them. They have a border around most which I don’t like. Other than that it works well. There support is EXCELLENT though. Always quick to respond and helpful.
