We were absolutely honored to chat with the ever inspiring Bjork Ostrom. He requires little introduction in the food blogging world. Bjork is the founder of Food Blogger Pro – a membership website that teaches food bloggers how to start, grow, and monetize their blogs. After helping his wife Lindsay get started with her food blog, Pinch of Yum, in 2010, Bjork started to wonder: is it possible to make a living from this blog? In 2011, he began publicly sharing the traffic and income that he and his wife Lindsay were generating from their blog, Pinch of Yum, in monthly income reports as a way to document their progress and share their findings with other food bloggers. These income reports have been a unique resource for many bloggers across all niches as they have ultimately documented how the couple took their site from a $20/month hobby to a 6-figure business. Today, Bjork continues to run Food Blogger Pro while also developing two new software tools, WP Tasty and Nutrifox
Bjork is a talented educator at heart with a passion to uplift and help others. In this interview, he talks candidly about the ups and downs of growing their successful business, how deep purpose and intent outweigh growth and financial gain, his favorite book and meal and what it’s like being a new dad to 3-month old Solvi. We loved this interview, gained personally from his perspective, and hope you will too.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed. All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements? Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies? They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity.
When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best. I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
