Hey, did you know I’m from the Caribbean? Ok, you probably guessed that because of my cool accent ;)

Well, today I’m super excited because I actually get to interview a fellow Caribbean. Not only that, but he’s someone who Blogs about Caribbean food (side note: It’s the BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD).

So, if you hear my Caribbean Accent a little stronger in this episode, you know why :)

Today’s guest is none other than Chris De La Rosa from from the Caribbean Pot blog. Chris was able to take his passion for Caribbean cuisine and culture and share this on his blog that gets over 100,000 Unique visitors every month.

Now, I don’t know about you but I think that’s A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE.

Here are some of the other cool things he has been able to build to:

  • Over 21,000 Likes on Facebook
  • Over 14,000 Subscribers on Youtube
  • Over 2.3 MILLION Videos views for his Caribbean Cooking Videos

Is that significant? It totally is. But that’s not the most powerful thing in my opinion.

What makes what he does great is that he is able to take something he’s EXTREMELY passionate about, share it with the world, and build a business around it. It’s a beautiful thing.

Inside This Interview, Chris shares the following:

  • How he got into blogging
  • One change he made to his videos that propelled his blog forward
  • How he gets traffic to his site
  • How he used social media to take his blog to the next level

I know you’ll enjoy this interview, because I sure did. And yes, you’ll get lots of value from it, in addition to practical tips to implement to grow your blog. So what are you waiting for? Have a listen :)

    I loved this interview.
     
    Seeing the success of Chris gives hope to rest of us to start something and reach some kind of popularity. Of course, having a great product does not hurt.
    After all these years in social media, I still do not understand Tweeter.  Every body seems to have all those automatic tools pumping out irrelevant information every hour. Like Chris, I only use it when I have something important to say, but it gets drowned by the noise within a few minutes.
     
    Thank you for all the motivation.

      @AlainGuillot I hear you Alain, Twitter is a very interesting beast in and of itself. I’ve recently made the decision to focus more on Facebook than anything else. Instead of trying to be everywhere at once (since my time is so limited), I decided to just go with ONE, and do it well.
       
      Thanks for the comment!
