There are many ways that you can support our efforts to maintain this blog, the Facebook page and the various Venice Foodies related groups on Facebook. As you may not realize, it does take a considerable amount of time, effort and money to maintain these valuable resources for the community. While I love supporting this community, I also recognize that I need your support as well!
YOU DID IT! Just being on this page means you are one of my favorite people.
Thank You For Supporting Venice Foodies!
If you’re reading this right now, you are already supporting my efforts!! Just browsing this website earns me a few pennies.
Ways You Can Support Us For Free
As a food blogger, I really rely on my readers to help grow and sustain our community. It would mean the world to me if you could take a few moments out of your day to read through my recipes, guides, and restaurant reviews, and share them with your friends. Your active participation through leaving comments and engaging with my content is also really valuable to me. Plus, as a member of an ad network, just checking out relevant ads along the way can provide me with the support I need to keep doing what I love.
Purchasing Things I Recommend
I just wanted to let you know that when you see me recommending certain products or sites in my posts, I may receive a small commission payment if you choose to purchase something. This won’t affect you in any way, but it means the world to me and helps me to continue sharing my love of food with you. So, if you do decide to make a purchase, I really appreciate your support!
Directly Through Paypal
If you would like to show your support for our blog in a more direct way, you can make a monetary contribution through Paypal. Simply click HERE to go to Paypal’s website where you can choose the amount you want to send. Every dollar is greatly appreciated and makes a big difference for us. Thank you for your generosity and for helping me to continue sharing my passion for food with the world!

That’s ok! We now have a Venmo option as well!
You may be asking, “What does the money go towards? Are you raising money for something specific?” Allow me to explain in detail! Along with the time it takes to research and write these blog posts for you to read, and as much as I enjoy going out to restaurants to report back to you all, there is a cost factor that goes into this. Contrary to popular belief, I do not “eat free all over town”. While I have developed relationships with restaurants and do receive occasional perks, I will never expect to be served a free meal simply because of this blog. Even in cases where I do receive something as a courtesy, I always want to make sure the servers are taken care of as well! When you support my blog, you are ultimately supporting our community as well since it will more than likely be used to do something at a local, small business!
