Thank you 2015! Love, Nuffnang

 

Dear 2015,

You’ve been such an eventful year. This has truly been a year of many changes. There were quite a number of notable moments this year, so let’s take a step back to see how far things have come for Nuffnang.

 

Company trip

  • Company trip

The Nuffnang team has grown substantially since our first days. 2015 came with many internal changes and development plans for expansion. Naturally, we’ve also had new people come in to keep the energy up and operations going.

Company trips are an annual event for #nuffiesaroundtheworld where nuffies from the Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and China offices come together and get to know each other better. This is one time where we get to meet the others from the regional offices and get to know people from our own office even better!

 

8 birthday

  • 8th birthday

Our 8th birthday was quite a milestone! 8 years into the industry, and Nuffnang is still going strong as the top Blog Advertising Network. We are very proud to have come thus far.

The theme of the party was 8 onto ∞, where we aim for greater heights, and work towards a bigger and better Nuffnang, all around the world. This was also the time of the white/gold or blue/black dress viral phenomenon. Since our dress code was white & gold, Ming decided to be trippy and come in blue and black.

The birthday celebration was a huge success as there was an explosion of congratulatory notes all over social media. Both influencers and nuffies shared their well wishes for the company with hashtag #nuffnang8irthday. That was indeed one of our most favourite times of the year!

Passing of LKY

  • Passing of LKY

With heavy hearts, Nuffnang went to pay our last respects to Singapore’s greatest founder, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. We joined the line on the very first day from 10am, and through that, witnessed the Singapore spirit as fellow Singaporeans helped each other with the long wait. Mr Lee might not be around anymore, but we will keep him and his aspirations close to our hearts as we work towards a home that he would be proud of.

 

NDP

  • NDP SG50

National Day was especially meaningful this year, not only because of the passing of Mr Lee, but also because it was a celebration of the amazing 50 years Singapore has come thus far. This SG50, Nuffnang partnered with the National Day committee and had our bloggers join in and share about the festivities. Older Singaporean icons as well as memorabilia definitely brought a lot of memories back!

Check out the thoughts of Becks, Kelvin and Joyce as they wrote about their exclusive experiences before and during the parade!

 

IPO

  • IPO

2015 was a big step for Nuffnang as we became a publicly listed company. Tons of sweat, blood and tears went into the planning and execution phases. When it eventually materialised, our CEO Ming and COO Timothy could not be happier. Big plans await!

 

Garuda

  • Garuda Indonesia Trip

We also had one of our biggest media trips with our bloggers this year- our Garuda Indonesia trip! 8 bloggers were invited to go on the trip – Andy, Charlene, Shenny, Evonne, Randy, Sheila, Zoe and Jessica Tham.

It wasn’t an easy trip as it required a good amount of physical endurance as the bloggers did quite a bit of trekking and hiking. Call times were also often at odd hours in order to catch certain events. But overall, it was a great trip as bloggers had the chance to explore places they would otherwise not be able to on a regular trip.

 

blogcon

  • Nuffnang Bloggers Conference

We had our first ever blogger conference! The blogging industry has been changing and we wanted to take time to also educate our bloggers on the changing landscape of the digital industry. We had speakers come in and share about various things- from online to offline, from Instagram photo taking skills to search engine optimisation. All in all, it was a really fruitful session for everyone.

After the event, Hotel Jen Tanglin also kindly extended invitations for a staycation for our influencers and Nuffnang stuff. Definitely a one of a kind experience!
