How I went from BlogJam to Full-Time Blogger in 2 Years
Jennifer attended the first ever BlogJam armed with only a domain name and A LOT of questions! She left pumped up and inspired to hit publish on her blog shortly after. Two years later she was working full-time as a blogger (in a small rural market!) and hasn’t looked back. In this session Jennifer will show you the specific steps she took and provide key advice for how to be successful in the ever-crowded and always changing world of bloggers and influencers. She did it and so can you!
Jennifer Naugler is the owner and CEO of Simple Local Life, a media company celebrating life on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Recognizing the lack of a local voice talking about all the fantastic things happening where she lived, Jennifer started Simple Local Life in November of 2015. She blogged for a year…without any making any money…to see what the response was, and her own enthusiasm for it. At her one year anniversary, she committed to turning Simple Local Life into a business, started treating it like a job and began making money shortly after. By April 2017, she was blogging full-time. She works promoting local businesses and events through Facebook Live series, content creation, local gift guides and more. She has added 2-3 contributors in the last year and Simple Local Life is a trusted resource and influencer in her small, rural market. Simple Local Life has been featured and interviewed in LighthouseNow, The Sheldon Macleod Show and Weekend Gardener with Nikki Jabbour on NewsRadio 95.7 and has written for the Now Lunenburg County magazine. She has partnered with and been sponsored by Presidents Choice, Natrel, Mosher Motors Ford Ltd, Gow’s Home Hardware, Bridgewater Pharmasave, Wile’s Lake Farm Market, the Lahave River Credit Union and more. Jennifer sees huge potential for businesses in the online space and is happy to help them reach their market.
