58 | How to Use Pinterest and Recipes to Drive Traffic to Your Blog with Jennifer Dempsey

Today I got to chat with Jenn Dempsey from the blog Mother Thyme. Jenn shared tons of amazing advice and tips and I think even the most seasoned bloggers will learn something from her! Jenn started blogging in 2011 and blogged exclusively about food. After experiencing blogger burnout a few years later, she completely pivoted and made the switch to lifestyle blogging. You’ll want to listen to hear more about how Jenn made this transition without losing her existing followers and how her old recipe posts are still driving a ton of traffic to her site! Jenn is a big Pinterest lover, and if you haven’t jumped on the Pinterest wagon yet, you’ll definitely want to after hearing Jenn talk about it. Lastly, Jenn jumped into the nitty-gritty of blogger burnout and shared some excellent tips for anyone facing similar challenges.
