In our publisher interview series we’ve had the opportunity to speak with bloggers in every niche across the lifestyle spectrum. From world travelers like Dave and Deb of The Planet D and Kristin of Be My Travel Muse to expert budget balancers like Latasha of Arts and Budgets and Alexis of Fitnancials, we’ve covered a lot of ground. BUT, we couldn’t have an interview series here at Mediavine without having a chat with Chef D. Chef Dennis Littley is not only a respected and well known publisher in the food blogging world, he also has a place in the hearts of all the Mediavine team as one of our most vocal supporters.  If you’re on the hunt for restaurant quality recipes made accessible for every home cook and tips and tricks from a culinary professional, look no further than Ask Chef Dennis.  We’re so glad you made […]

We loved the opportunity to talk with Deb and Dave of the super fun adventure travel site The Planet D. Hearing the story of how they made their travel dreams a reality through a leap of faith and quitting their jobs in the film industry is inspirational, as is the way they see the world and do life together! And, of course, we LOVE the ‘task’ of going through their pictures to choose which ones to feature in this post. It’s always a struggle when we interview travel bloggers like Deb and Dave, Finding The Universe and Be My Travel Muse. Welcome to the Mediavine blog, Deb and Dave! Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. Hi everyone, we’re Dave and Deb. A married couple of 21 years that decided to leave our careers in the lm industry in […]

Mediavine publisher Laurence Norah of Finding The Universe actually came to blogging from the computer tech side, which is more unusual than one might think. His technical know-how has combined with his passion for travel and photography to create an exciting and beautiful site that’s no slouch in the SEO department. We persuaded Laurence to stay grounded long enough to share his story and expertise with us. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. Hi! I’m a half British, half Seychellois professional photographer and blogger who loves to travel – especially to experience the great outdoors. My wife Jessica and I run our two blogs together full time. Right now we travel about six – eight months of the year, and spend the rest of our time working from home in Edinburgh, Scotland. How did you get started blogging? […]

Today on the blog, we’re spotlighting Mediavine publisher Alexis Schroeder of Fitnancials, where she covers all things fitness and finance, with some travel and health thrown in. She may still be in college, but she’s an experienced publisher from a blogging family, as you’ll read more about below. Welcome, Alexis! Thank you for talking with me. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. Hello everyone! My name’s Alexis and I am a senior in college studying Psychology. Besides school, I spend a lot of my time blogging. When I’m not blogging, I’m mountain biking, reading, or traveling.

“You need a lawyer.” Whether it’s your one call after a wild night or a frantic cry for help after your most popular post has been copied and your images stolen, the need for legal representation typically elicits the same feelings as the need for a root canal. But what if it didn’t? What if you knew you had everything for your digital business put in place and you were covered before anything went wrong? Enter Jamie Lieberman, Esq. She’s a tattooed, purple-haired genius lawyer, with a firm and several businesses that specialize in legal concerns for digital content creators. Jamie will be breaking through the legal stigma in her session at the Mediavine Conference, “Lawyering Up: Blogger Legal Tips”, and she was kind enough to give us an interview preview. Hi Jamie! Thank you for taking the time to gab with us and do […]

I have been performing on stages in music projects and theater for almost my whole adult life. Currently, I live in a suburb right outside of downtown Chicago with my rockstar husband and amazing 1-year-old son. How did you get started blogging?

Today we are chatting with Mel Gunnell, of none other than Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I’ve been a big fan for a long time of this blog in particular, and she was one of the sites that really inspired me to start a food blog of my own. She started blogging way back in the early days of this business, and you are going to love this insightful look into her blog and her life.  (If you’re like us and can’t get enough deliciousness from Mediavine publishers, check out our interviews with Dennis of Ask Chef Dennis and Nicole of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring.)
