Every wonder how #bloggers get their start? If you have a few minutes, I'd love to share my story with you.
I grew up in #Vancouver . By being at the right place at the right time, I happened to “be in the know” about new restaurant openings, sample sales and new club openings. I felt like I was coming across a lot of cool information, but I didn’t know who to share it with, so I started putting it on a “blog”. This was in 2008. I named it Modern Mix Vancouver, a play on the term “Marketing Mix” which a business school term referencing a combination of factors (product, price, placement, promotion) controlled by a company to influence consumers to purchase its goods or services.
I started off by attending local craft markets, and interviewed and networked with makers and artists I met. In fact, the first "media" invite I ever got was to a Vancouver craft fair. This is why I still have a soft spot for local markets - that’s where I got my start! In nearly 10 years, I have published 2,000+ blog posts featuring my experience with hundreds of Canadian brands, and have attended events in almost every lifestyle category spanning from beauty, to food, to retail, to fitness. As blogger outreach became more common to include in a consumer marketing strategy, my opportunities to work with brands grew as well. I’ve been very lucky to be a part of this!
To this day, I still get excited about being in the know and finding something new to share with my friends and readers. It brings me great joy to recommend a destination, activity, or experience, and for someone to find value in what I have to say. For me, blogging has always been about sharing my experiences, and supporting local where possible...and "local" can apply to any where in the world you happen to be. ✈️ Thanks for reading! If you’re still with me at the end of the year, I have some BIG news to share as I continue onwards in my blogging journey. ♥️ 📷: @fuoco.photography
