Jill Nystul

Jill Nystul launched the blog One Good Thing by Jillee (OGT) in 2011 on a simple premise to sort through the clutter of life and share one good thing with our readers each day. Millions of people now look to OGT each month for tips on living a more frugal and healthy life.  Nystul€™s helpful €œDIY€™s€ have garnered her the reputation of being like €œMartha Stewart...but a real person€ and as €œHip Hints from Heloise.
In May of 2015 her book, One Good Life, was published by Putnam Books. The book provides readers with more of the tips and projects that have made the blog so popular, while also telling the story of how Jill came to focus on one good thing per day, in order to overcome a failing marriage, postpartum depression, and alcoholism.
In 2014, Jill also self-published the children€™s book Jillee Bean and the One Good Thing that teaches children about the importance of service. 
€‹Jill appeared on The Today Show in June of 2015 and is a 2014 Parents magazine blog award winner. OGT has been featured on The OWN Show, Mother Earth Living Magazine, First for Women Magazine, All You Magazine, People.com, RedbookMag.com, Buzzfee.com, RealSimple.com, CountryLiving.com, HuffintgonPost.com, ApartmentTherapy.com, BonAppetit.com, and SFGlobe.com. Jill is also a Better Homes and Gardens Insider.
