Introducing: The Member Directory!

I know we introduced our Study Halls just last week, but since we were on a roll, we decided to launch something else this week!

Introducing: The Food Blogger Pro Member Directory! 🥳

Starting this week, members can use this directory to search for and connect with their fellow Food Blogger Pro members and experts. You can search for members by niche, location, name, and blog name!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll continue saying it: One of the best parts of Food Blogger Pro is the community. Why?

  • Blogging can be lonely. It can feel like we’re isolated from others when we’re developing recipes, photographing or videoing food, and writing blog posts all by ourselves.
  • We can learn and grow by connecting, collaborating, and troubleshooting with one another. Other members have had similar experiences to our own, so we can learn from their knowledge and share our own in the pursuit of making positive progress on our blogs and businesses.

This Member Directory is just one of the ways we’re making blogging feel a little less isolated and helping members connect! We’re so excited for you to use it to meet, follow, and engage with your fellow Food Blogger Pro members.

Using the Member Directory

If you’ve been around Food Blogger Pro for a while, you’ll notice that our menu bar now looks a little different. You can now access the directory and the forum under the Community section:

Once you’re there, you can use the filter and search to find members you’ve connected with on the forum, members that live in the same area as you, or members by their blog names:

Only active members will appear in the directory.

How to Fill Out Your Member Card

Here’s what a completed member card looks like:

You’ll notice that we display information like your:

  • Photo
  • Name
  • Blog Name and URL
  • Location
  • Social links
  • Blog niche
  • Bio

You can add almost all of that information right on Food Blogger Pro. Simply head to the top-right corner of the menu bar, click on the “Hi, Your Name” drop-down menu, and then click Edit Profile:

When you scroll down, you’ll see the fields you can fill out to complete your member card for the dashboard:

And of course, as a member, you have the choice of how much or how little information you share on the directory. Or you can opt-out all-together by switching this setting to Disabled:
