020: How to Secure Your Food Blog with Andrew Wilder from Blog Tutor

Welcome back to the Food Blogger Pro podcast! In this episode, Bjork talks with Andrew Wilder from Blog Tutor about blog security.

When you’re starting and maintaining your food blog, there are so many things to do. From getting your website designed just right to making that batch of double chocolate cookies 5 times to make it perfect, a food blogger pretty much always has a full plate (har har).

So when someone tells you that you should take some of your precious, precious time and use it to create strong passwords and back up your blog, I’ll admit that I’m not the first person to jump up and down in excitement.
