This year BlogJam was so thrilled to have the support of Sunwing.ca as a Keynote Sponsor. For us that was a DOUBLE WIN because it also included an afternoon keynote featuring the wise words of Candace Derickx aka the force behind the stellar blog, Life in Pleasantville.
Candace provided some valuable insight on the life of a travel influencer. She had the audience laughing at her confessions of how to capture the perfect beach shot and gave some great tips on what travel businesses like Sunwing.ca are seeking when they work with bloggers.
Of course, BlogJam attendees were on the edge of their seats when it was time to announce the winner of a trip for 2 to the IFA Villas Bavaro Resort and Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
The lucky winner of the Sunwing prize was Lori Byrne. North Shore farmer and friend to all, Lori’s blog Farm Fresh Style is a BlogJam favourite. She was a presenter in our first year and took the stage again this year with another amazing woman, Heather Clarke of Heather’s Handmade Life.
In Lori’s words:
“We’re so excited and appreciative on winning this trip! We’ve never been on a trip south like this before and can’t wait to bask in the sun and skip a little of a Nova Scotia winter! Thank you Sunwing and BlogJam!”
Big thanks to Candace and Sunwing.ca for providing their invaluable BlogJam support and this incredible prize.
