I’ve started a new job as Community Manager for Nuffnang Australia.
Nuffnang is a blog advertising network which came to Australia over a year ago. Basically their business model is to sign up individual bloggers to become part of their network, and then serve ads across its blog network. The cool thing about Nuffnang from my point of view is that they focus on building an active blogging community as a reason for people to join Nuffnang – not just offering the financial incentive of making money from ads.
So that’s where I come in. I get to help build the blogging community & blogging expertise of Nuffnang’s Australian bloggers. You may have already heard of some of Nuffnang’s bloggers, like Erica Bartle of Girl with a Satchel, and vintage fashion blogger Candice DeVille of Super Kawaii Mama. Over the coming year, I’m hoping to use my experience & expertise to help build a bigger & better blogging community across Australia.
You can find out a bit more about Nuffnang over at the company blog – they’ve posted a roundup of 2009 which has some facts & figures about their international network. There are over 118,000 bloggers in the network across Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines & Australia. I’ll be looking after the Australian Nuffnang community, which is around 1,200 bloggers and growing.
I’ll be organising blogger meetups and events throughout the year, and you’ll hopefully see me out and about at lots of events too. Tech & gadget bloggers are welcome to attend our first tech blogger meetup on 4 March – details are available on the Nuffnang blog.
