Food Blog University Conference
An All Inclusive Blogger Conference in Cancun Mexico!
Hi guys! I’m so excited to tell you about this new conference that I’m a part of…it’s called Food Blog University and it’s an all inclusive conference that’s NOT just for food bloggers (don’t let the name fool you). The Food Blog University Conference was started by fellow bloggers Melissa of Serendipity and Spice and Diana of Eating Richly. FBU15 will be held in Cancun, Mexico the weekend of October 22-25, 2015. And it’s sure to be a blast! It’s all about learning how to grow your blog to the next level and learning the secrets of some power blogging couples on how they turned their blogs into successful family businesses.
So what is an all inclusive blogger conference?
This year’s conference will be held at the luxurious Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa located right on the beach. When you purchase your ticket you’ll receive ground transportation from the airport to the hotel and back, 4 days & 3 nights accommodations at the Dreams resort, all the food & drinks you could possible consume (they have 6 award winning restaurants plus several bars and buffets throughout the property…even room service is included), all premium adult beverages, nightly entertainment, kids club (bring the kids and check them into the kids club for the conference sessions!), conference sessions, an excursion, taxes, gratuities, and more!
Just think if you went to a conference in the states how much you would spend between hotels, transportation, drinks with friends, childcare, etc. You would wind up spending the same amount or more…..except this time you’ll be in paradise and learning in an intimate atmosphere (tickets are limited to 50 bloggers to give you individual time with the speakers).
So who are these fabulous Food Blog University speakers?
Food Blog University has an all star line up of speakers! Each of the speakers has taken their blog and turned it into a successful family business. The men behind the women were able to quit their corporate jobs and are now passionate about helping their wives be as successful as possible and share the secrets to that success with YOU!

Lisa and Jason Leake of 100 Days of Real Food and Pro Blog School
Lisa is the New York Times Best Selling Author of 100 Days of Real Food where she chronicles her journey and shares recipes on how she improved her family’s eating habits by giving up processed foods. Her passion lies in teaching others the simple steps they can take to lead a healthier lifestyle and pay attention to what they eat.
As 100 Days of Real Food continued to grow Lisa started enlisting the help of her husband Jason. As he started helping her with the technical and business side of her blog he started placing his entire paycheck into a savings account to see if they could live off her income alone. After just 8 months he was able to quit his job because her income surpassed his own. They have turned 100 Days of Real Food into a family business and even have help that they regularly employ.
Seeing the need of transparency in the blogging world Jason decided to start Pro Blog School. He loves sharing and helping other bloggers reach their full potential with their blogs.
