New Month & A New Editor


Foodies 100 final logo

I am hugely excited, and slightly daunted, to be stepping into Amy’s shoes as the editor of Foodies100.

Firstly a massive thanks to Amy for her work on the site and twitter since Foodies100 was founded and a huge congratulations on your new job!  I am (naturally) a little nervous (aka not really looking forward to all the questions the first time the index is updated – from experience my top tip is if you change your Twitter handle then remember to update your Foodies100 profile) but looking forward to working with Sally and the Foodies100 team.

If you do not know me I have been blogging at Fuss Free Flavours for over 6 years; I write for various publications, develop recipes and do some social media work for a number of brands.

I’ve got lots of ideas for Foodies100, and once I am settled in, with feed under the desk and mug of coffee to hand, I look forward to sharing them with you.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
