It’s no secret that blogging is a big deal these days. You’re reading one right now, you know! 

Although we talk about all sorts of things on this blog, we absolutely love to talk about food. 

Do you love to make food? Do you love to eat food? Have you ever wanted to blog about your favorite recipes and tips?

Well, Utah’s Everything Food Conference is the perfect event to inspire you. Held at one of our favorite outside shopping destinations, The Gateway! 

Meet Kami, host number one. She writes the popular food blog “No Diets Allowed”. Kami had a hard time when she started her blog. She had no idea where to start! She couldn’t decide how much time she should put in, what tools she should invest in, and had no place to learn all this. So with a lot of hard work and experience, she figured it out herself. As an RN and a mom, she cares a lot about healthy living. Her father passed away from Parkinson’s disease in 2011, and she struggled seeing him live an unhealthy lifestyle. Not only has she figured out how to start a rockin’ website, but she makes rockin’ recipes! Through trial, error, and time,  it sounds like she has it all figured out. 

Not only will you hear from Kami, but you’ll be inspired by Sabrina, host number two. She is another passionate lover of food, who loves to share her passion on her Instagram account. She is an extremely successful event planner and corporate manager, who knows how to throw a perfect party. She loves to dedicate searches to find the best of the best in the food in Utah. Can you imagine getting a restaurant recommendation from her? 

Make sure you bring a computer, or a notebook to take notes with. You must soak up every last bit of valuable information you’ll be receiving. You’ll also want to bring a DSLR camera, because you’ll be getting a ton of tips, tricks, and lessons in photography that will help you perfect your blog’s photos. There’s a high fitness workout class happening as well, so don’t forget your workout outfit. Oh, and there’s going to be food, OF COURSE, so bring that appetite of yours!

The site also said you should bring an extra bag for the free swag you’ll be receiving… Free swag? Sign us up! 

You will not want to miss the amazing lineup of guest speakers. You ever watch Cupcake Wars on the Food Network? Well the host, Justin Willman is a guest speaker! He’s a popular guest star on The Tonight Show, Ellen, and even Chelsea Lately! Enjoy Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, and even Mary Crafts-Homer the President and CEO of Culinary Crafts.

There will also be food presentations from some incredible and inspiring presenters. To name a few, we’ll start with Derral Eves. Derral is a successful YouTube culinary star who has worked with brands like Red Bull, Adobe Software, NBC, and more! Oh yeah, and his channel is the most popular “How To” YouTube channel in the world! Phil Pallen is an extremely successful brand strategist. Why trust him? Maybe because he works with Shark Tank, Dancing With the Stars, The X Factor, American Idol, and even Project Runway. Bjork and Lindsay Ostrom are a production power couple. They own Food Blogger Pro, a site for aspiring food bloggers. Sally McKenney is a Pinterest star. I guarantee you have pinned most of her recipes, they are so popular. Because they’re so delicious! Her blog “Sally’s Baking Addiction” has been so successful, she blogs for People magazine!
