Bjork here. I’m Lindsay’s husband and the Official Grocery Getter here at Pinch of Yum. How do I get this honorable title? The equation is quite simply, actually: 1 motorcycle + 1 Filipino license = Official Grocery Getter.
Once a month I take a break from my intense grocery getting duties and write a post that reveals the income and traffic from Pinch of Yum’s previous month. Our hope is that these monthly income and traffic reports are inspirational and educational.
Inspirational in that you can see that’s it’s possible to create an income from a food blog and educational in that you can see where the income we’re earning is coming from.
Last month we challenged readers to put together a recipe video. It was awesome to watch all of them (which I did…every minute of every video)! I’ve embedded the videos at the end of this post. Be sure to check them out and leave a nice comment for those that submitted a video. 🙂
After all of the recipe videos you’ll see a screencast from me that explains how food bloggers can create income from these videos.
But first, let’s have a look at the numbers.

Creating An Income From Recipe Videos
As the folks who submitted videos know, creating a recipe video is a lot of work! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could create some additional income when you put the time and energy into making one?
The video below shares an idea you can use to help create an income from your videos by including affiliate links in a YouTube videos description area.
As always, thanks for reading! I’m off to record some more Food Blogger Pro videos. 🙂
