“You may study all the '-ologies' of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless.” – Author Unknown
Here at Konfidence, we love reading family and parenting blogs. After all, they are a way of getting right into the heart of our target audience. We have been reading them for years and working with bloggers for a long time. That is why in 2014 we decided to launch our Swimologists program – a way of working on a long-term partnership with some of our favourite bloggers, rather than just the odd review of our products here and there.
2014 was so successful and we built up a really great relationship with our bloggers, that we decided to do it again in 2015. And then 2015 was also amazing, so you guessed it – we are doing it again this year, too! In 2016 we are doing it slightly differently, however, with us announcing our Child Swimologists first and then searching for Baby Swimologists later in the year.
We think that we have picked a really great bunch here, and are super excited to get started working with them. Over the year, they will be reviewing some of our favourite Konfidence products, as well as heading on a weekend break to Alton Towers to really put them to good use in the Splash Landings pool there.
Without further ado, here is a little bit more about our 2016 Child Swimologists...
