A Blog post, because I have to start somewhere.
Hear Ye, Hear Ye, On a beautiful sunny day in the city of Vancouver a Weblog, or Blog as the kids are calling them these days, is born.
My name is Jonathan Murrell, and I’m the owner-operator of Bulging Baskets Vancouver, a new and exciting giftware company. My fiancé and I started the business in May of 2016 with a proper launch of our E-commerce site in September of the same year. I have spent the last five months overhauling the company, reviewing our processes, sourcing new products, and rebuilding our website from the ground up. All of this with my amazingly supportive partner and a huge network of friends and family.
I’ve decided to start this blog as the next step in sharing our company with you. It’s important to give credit and notice to amazing businesses and events in B.C. I haven’t landed on an overall topic or style, but I strive to bring you relevant content on gift giving, gourmet food, and BC companies.
I have worked with many small to medium-sized companies this year, and we have all made it through the grind of the first year – or many tough years. It has been surprising to see the generous support we have received in our start up. I look forward to sharing my stories, photo’s, and interviews. I am not a journalist but enjoy writing, and hopefully, my humour will come across in the text. If you have any ideas on what you want to see on this blog, or if you are connected to the food and gifting world in Canada drop me a line, I would be pleased to meet you.
P.S. I will share the timeline on the launch of our new full-featured website in my next post. Stop rushing me! I’m a busy guy – I have a blog to write.
