the lively show: volunteering abroad & food blogging with lindsay ostrom

TheLivelyShowWithLindsayOstrom

Happy Lively Show day to you!

Today I have an awesome new episode with Lindsay Ostrom, the blogger behind the incredibly popular Pinch of Yum.

Lindsay’s food blog has tons of great recipes, eCookbooks, and helpful income reports (great for those looking to monazite their blogs). She and her husband Bjork – the business half of the blog – also have a site called Food Blogger Pro where they help food bloggers take things to the next level.

In today’s episode, we are talking about Lindsay’s recent decision to go full-time as a blogger after deciding to stay in teaching last year, her experience teaching abroad at the Children’s Shelter of Cebu, and what she would recommend for those who want to give back either through travel or donations as well.

This episode is perfect for those who love their day jobs and are trying to pick the right time to go full-time with a blog, or for those interested in getting involved internationally in a greater way.

Today’s episode of The Lively Show has a special guest…. Mr. Lively himself!

When I first started dating my husband, I called him Mr. Lively on the blog.

Back then, many readers assumed it was a pseudonym.

In fact, one or two readers even shared their disappointment when they learned that Lively was, in fact, his last name. They preferred the idea that it was a nickname based on his personality alone.

Me on the other hand?

I was thrilled to adopt the Lively last name myself!

Anyways, today’s your chance to get to know the hubba.

We’ll be talking about loving a 9-to-5 job. This is an important topic – and one of my favorite episodes – because I deeply believe being intentional is not tied to entrepreneurship specifically.

This episode is perfect for those who love their day jobs, those who want to find a 9-to-5 they love, or for those who want to hear about the benefits of having a day job compared to entrepreneurship.
