Building a YouTube Cooking Channel to 250k subscribers with Hilah & Chris from Hilah Cooking -FBP006

For this episode of the Food Blogger Pro podcast, we’re taking with Hilah Johnson and Chris Sharpe from the YouTube channel and food blog Hilah Cooking.

Hilah and Chris did not get started in video with their cooking channel. It all started, in fact, with a "post-apocalyptic horror comedy" film they did together – which ultimately took a dive and failed.

But just a few years later, Chris and Hilah are a very successful and popular team in the Youtube video industry. They joined Bjork on the Food Blogger Pro podcast to talk all about their journey to YouTube success.

The Business of Food Blogging with Jason Leake from 100 Days of Real Food – FBP005

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

For those outside the food blog world, blogging seems pretty simple – just make some food, take a few pictures, and put it up on the internet. For those of us inside the food blog world, the last sentence really just made you laugh. Well, Jason Leake is right there with you.

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.
