Welcome to the final episode! 

I am going to be honest with you, creating, filming, and funding this series has been a bittersweet experience. I have loved being able to share a part of my world with you, but the truth is, if I don’t have a network behind me not as many folks are going to watch. I thought for SURE that my audience would be interested in seeing what we do here. Only about a 1/4 of my audience has tuned in.

In doing this series I wanted to convey truly how hard we work, how much time and money goes into perfecting every recipe I publish on my websites. Just how much we care about quality over quantity. And also be vulnerable and show you the hard stuff. When employees quit, when things don’t work, when life gets tough. And also the joy and talents of everyone around me. We do have fun. 🙂 

The weird thing about food blogging is that I am not trying to sell you something, I am ultimately trying to convince you to accept the free recipes offered. It is such a weird concept in this world! So far in my career I have failed at trying to convince google of that, so I have dedicated a lot of time and resources into you, the audience. Building relationships and making friends. Offering transparency into every aspect of our lives here, and humbly hoping you accept that offer. 

I don’t know if Season 2 of Food Blogging Diaries will happen, that is really up to you! If you want more, I just need to know. 🙂

  1. Please, please do season 2! Can’t imagine why more of your followers aren’t watching…. It’s so good and each episode feels too short- I want to see more. You guys are a hoot. And you’re right food blogging is kind of a mystery. Merry Merry Christmas to you all 💕🎄

  2. As a food blogger myself I find the videos really interesting from a technical standpoint even, but I’m shocked that more people aren’t tuning in for the sheer entertainment value alone! You guys have done an amazing job and if people aren’t interested it’s a reflection on them not you and your team. I hope very much that there will be a season 2, both for my own enjoyment and because you guys just seem meant to do this! 🙌🏻💕

  3. Loved all of these episodes, awesome seeing all of your delightful personalities each week and the yummy-looking food. I would love a season 2 (and more)! ❤🙏

  4. OH MY GOSH, I love this series but honestly I forget where to watch it.

    I feel season 1 was the getting to know you and season 2 should get into the guts of it all.

    Episode 7 wins a bloggy if there is such a thing!!!!!!
    I laughed so much with you.
