Hi, We're Lindsay and Bjork Ostrom

The Food Bloggers Behind Pinch of Yum

We started our food blog, Pinch of Yum, when Lindsay was a 4th grade school teacher as nothing more than a hobby to share recipes we love with our friends and family. Our first food processor was from the “free” pile at a garage sale, so we're proof you don't need a ton of bells and whistles to get started.

Since then, we have grown Pinch of Yum to over 80 million site visits every year, and now it provides our full-time income and allows us to support a whole team of creatives.

With over 10 years of blogging experience under our belts — and not without a lack of trial and error — Food Blogger Pro is the place where we share everything we know to help other food bloggers reach their goals.

We help creative foodies (like you!) take the guesswork out of building a food blog that allows you to share your passion and earn money doing what you love.

I set a goal to double my blog revenue within three months and, with the info provided by Food Blogger Pro, I was able to accomplish that goal in under 30 days! My revenue was already fairly large, so this was no small feat. This website and all of the easy to follow information is beyond valuable.

Quitting my day job, paying off my student loans, and buying a house are now all realities of the very near future.

The BEST thing I ever did was subscribe to Food Blogger Pro!! Without it, I would never have taken the plunge to start my blog. The courses and teaching styles of Bjork and Lindsay were key to setting everything up, and I am now happy to report that this has become my full-time job and we are almost at the point of my husband quitting his job to help me! It’s very exciting and I still can’t believe I’m getting paid to do something I am so passionate about. Thank you guys for making my dream a reality!!

Food Blogger Pro has been absolutely essential to my growth this year! With the training and tools they provide, I started creating videos. I literally went from knowing nothing about video to making ones that I’m super proud of — and now one of my videos has over 1.3 million views!! (EEEK!)

One year into my Food Blogger Pro journey, a recipe video of mine went viral. With nearly 10 million views, that one video has literally changed my life. I’m now a full-time blogger and a proud member of Food Blogger Pro all thanks to their teaching and guidance!

By joining Food Blogger Pro, you’ll get access to the same recipe video course I watched that changed my life and my career as a food blogger. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to quit your job and become a full-time food blogger too!

I vastly underestimated the skills that would be needed to run a successful and higher traffic blog. My goal was to hit 1,000 pageviews a month. After joining Food Blogger Pro, I can say my traffic is now at 150,000 pageviews a month (and growing). Some of it was me working behind the scenes. But honestly, I needed a whole lot of tools for my tool box before those magical numbers started happening.

Blogging is ever changing, and the content posted on Food Blogger Pro represents the evolving field that it is.

My Food Blogger Pro membership is one of the most essential investments I’ve made to date. My only regret was not finding out about it sooner.

Organize Yourself Skinny

After 12 years working full-time in Higher Education, I resigned from my position to become a full-time professional blogger. This was a decision I did not take lightly. But in the last 7 months I made more money blogging than I made in my “real” job and decided it was time to take the leap.

I strongly believe that because of the knowledge you share on Food Blogger Pro, I was able to take my blog to a professional level.

Food Blogger Pro helped me become one of those ‘six figure bloggers’ that I wanted to be when I started the journey with them. From podcasts, seminars, lives calls, courses and discussions, my membership was the biggest resource to help me get to where I am today!
