Introducing our Preserve Affiliates

This year for the first time we have welcomed an amazing cohort of bright and brilliant bloggers to join us as Preserve Affiliates to help us to welcome attendees and spread the word about our event.

We encourage you to follow along with this group and engage with each of their unique accounts. Remember, if you purchase a ticket to Preserve Retreat via an Affiliate Link, you’ll receive a sweet discount off your ticket price.

Heidi of Raising Haligonians

Heidi is a professional writer with a family that is always on the go — doing crafts and activities around the house; running around to local — and not-so-local — playgrounds, programs, and events; and checking out all the amazing people, places, and things her community has to offer families.

We recommend checking out her playground reviews. They’re a great way to find fun stops around the HRM for your kiddos to enjoy.

Jennifer of Simple Local Life

Jen lives on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia where she blogs about local businesses and events in her community.

We recommend her Sunday Morning Coffee series that provides a glimpse into what it might be like to buy a home and experience life in her charming, quaint, and vibrant region.

Lori of Farm Fresh Style

Lori blogs about creating a country life in full colour, from the the north shore of Nova Scotia where she lives with her sweet girlies and her handsome Mister.

We recommend her posts about lambing season. It’s serious cuteness overload.

Jen of Settling for Great

Jen has backpacked around the world and is now a mom of two, striving to up-level family life and continue her adventure. She began the blog Settling for Great as a way to hold herself accountable as well as to inspire others to up-level their own family lives.

We recommend reading her insights on last-minute travel with the family. She’s open about both the risks and the rewards.

Jennifer of Prairie Telegraph

Jennifer relocated from a one-horse small town in Alberta to beautiful New Brunswick. She is an expert in digital marketing, working with entrepreneurs and small business owners to promote their products and services.

We recommend checking out her “Telegrams” where she provides tips on blogging, networking, and more.

Sandy of Canadian Blog House

Sandy is a proud Canadian, incurable big kid, and self-described luckiest person on earth. She blogs from the Nation’s Capital and covers all the best events and activities in Ottawa and beyond.

You’re Invited to Preserve ~ A BlogJam Atlantic Retreat

Each year, one of the resounding messages we receive from participants is that they leave BlogJam with an abundance of information (and lessons and tools and ideas). It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. It’s common to not know where to start — or even feel pulled to start over.

We want you to know that where you are right now is okay. You can nurture what you have started. You can find the best parts of your blog and preserve those hard-written words and beautifully crafted posts. And we can help you.

Bigger does not always mean better.
A message shouted is not what makes it worth hearing.
Sometimes more is just more.

While we know how wonderful it can be to watch something blossom from effort and diligent care, we decided that for 2019, we didn’t want the focus of BlogJam to be solely on growth. With that in mind, this year, we decided to slow things way, way down.

Instead of growing louder, what if we were quieter? Instead of shouting, let us whisper. Let’s create space for deep learning, inner growth, and sustainability.

Join us at the enchanting
Oak Island Resort
