For this episode of the Food Blogger Pro podcast, we’re taking with Jason Leake from 100 Days of Real Food.

Jason went from supportive-but-not-interested husband to full-time behind the scenes blog manager in less than 2 years. He takes care of almost everything that goes on at 100 Days of Real Food that doesn’t involve cooking, photographing or writing posts.

What that means is that Jason knows a LOT about what it takes to make a food blog run beyond the cooking & photographing part – and this is where most of us get stuck. This interview is definitely not one to miss.
