2016 Is The Year Of The Blogger

If you are a blogger 2016 is going to be your year.

I am a PR professional and this is what I do for a living. I watch trends and adjust campaigns and plans according to those trends and right now I will tell you that almost every product, big brand and line wants an into the world of bloggers. Because bloggers are a direct line to a particular market these brands want to reach and most importantly, bloggers can launch full campaigns across multiple social media channels faster than ad companies can even begin to story board their ideas for a campaign. As bloggers we are doing it faster, better and smarter. And brands want in.

Some brands are using middle man agencies that work with bloggers. Some brands go directly to bloggers with a pitch. I have even successfully pitched companies I wanted to work with on my own.

Right now there are so many exciting developments taking place in order to bring bloggers to the top of the media pile and if you are a blogger looking to take your blog to the next step you are not going to want to miss it.

What this all means for you is that if you put a little elbow grease into your blogging I think you will most definitely see returns. So in order to help you hone your blogging skills I would like to invite you to the upcoming session of The Blog Staycation taking place January 14th-17th.

The Blog Staycation was created to allow bloggers a set time frame to dedicate towards their blog to work on simple or large updates, connect with other bloggers, share blogging resources, learn lots of great tips and tackle their blogging to do lists. Since the first Staycation the number of bloggers who participate has more than doubled and bloggers around the world continue to use this time to grow their blogs.

In 2015 we had so many great expert contributors to the Blog Staycation and I am living proof that what you learn at a Staycation works. I took copious notes each time and I hit the ground running after these sessions. My actions helped to not only double my blog audience, but also my reach and my blogging income. If you are trying to do all of this, but need a little help to get there then you are really going to want to join us.

So if you want in here is what you need to know:

  1. Oh this sounds like work and you know I hate that four letter word. I’ll plug along with what I’m doing because it’s all I want to do. I know many others want far more. I say go for it.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  5. I am having a much needed mini-vacation during your blogging staycation…I am still going to sign up for the email alerts. I really need to learn a lot about this blogging thing. I hope 2016 is my year to gain an audience, other than my family, for my blog :)

  6. Hi Jen, it’s good to know it’s going to be the year of the blogger. I feel ready now to take my blogging up a notch, not sure how to go about it, but I’ll find out how.

    I totally missed the Blog Staycation, but I have to be honest and say that I am hopeless at those kind of things. Maybe next time though.
