BlogJam Atlantic: It Takes A Village To Grow A Blog

Posted by


BlogJam Atlantic

Canadian Blog House received a conference pass to BlogJam Atlantic, a blogging conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in exchange for this promotion. All opinions are our own.

When we first started Canadian Blog House, it was meant to be no more than a hobby. This blog was to be a place where we could share an opinion or two, some product reviews, and some giveaways.

Four years later, Canadian Blog House has evolved into so much more than we could have ever imagined.

Countless hours of self-learning, googling, reading, trial-and-error, and a lot of “muddling through”, brought life to this blog.

It Takes A Village

But as that famous saying goes…it takes a village.

And it really does.

It takes a village to grow a blog.

A village of blogging peers, public relations professionals, brands, readers, social media followers, small businesses, graphic designers, IT professionals, family, friends…the list goes on and on.

Part of that village belongs to blogging conferences…like BlogJam Atlantic.

BlogJam Atlantic

“The goal of BlogJam is to provide an opportunity for bloggers from Atlantic Canada to engage with one another face-to-face and to share experiences and expertise related to blogging through meaningful dialogue.

Participants of BlogJam will be active in this experience through knowledge exchange, which will be facilitated by a day-long event, including plenary and workshop-style breakout sessions.

Active participants of BlogJam will leave feeling enlightened and empowered to implement BlogJam-inspired ideas into their blogging experiences and related undertakings.

No matter how skilled you are at self-learning, how much online help you have, or how extensive your blogging and social media knowledge is, attending a blogging conference like BlogJam Atlantic is something every blogger should do.

There’s such a wealth of knowledge, skills, and know-how to be gained from sitting in a conference room full of your peers, brands, and professionals, in a way that you just cannot experience sitting at home alone in front of your computer.

A Great Canadian Blogging Conference!

In its 3rd year now, BlogJam Atlantic, has been bringing a great Canadian conference experience to East Coast bloggers, straight from the beautiful Nova Scotia city of Halifax.

Hoping to captivate a larger east coast audience, as well as bloggers from across Canada, Renée, Kerra, and Krista, have upped the ante, attracting some big name sponsors and keynote speakers to the 2017 edition of BlogJam Atlantic, including:

  • Sunwing
  • Fujifilm
  • Downtown Halifax Business Commission
  • Oceanstone Seaside Resort

The full roster of great sponsors is just one aspect of BlogJam Atlantic. There is something for every level of blogger at BlogJam Atlantic – from novice to advanced!

Here are just a few of the highlights attendees can look forward to:

  • Food & Photography pre-conference workshop with Michelle Doucette & Gio Restaurant
  • Mini-Jamboree at Level Bar at the Prince George Hotel
  • BlogJam Gives Back with Shelter Nova Scotia & My Home Apparel
  • Quick Pitch for Bloggers & Brands
  • “Sit With Us!” lunch
  • Fabulous door prizes
  • & more!

And yes, these ladies convinced me to attend the upcoming BlogJam Atlantic conference being held at the Prince George Hotel in beautiful downtown Halifax on November 5, 2017. As you can imagine, it didn’t take much convincing! I can’t wait!

I had the pleasure of meeting Renée, Kerra, and Krista back in April. With their down-home east coast charm, warm and welcoming hugs, and fabulous enthusiasm, the BlogJam ladies are sure to make all attendees feel “at home”.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to attend a number of blogging conferences over the years. No matter which blogging conference I have attended, nor how many sessions I have been a part of, I always leave each conference feeling like I have learned some great new tips, tricks or important info. Every. Single. Time.

I can’t wait to attend BlogJam Atlantic! Won’t you join me there?

See you in Halifax!
