Johann Christian Blum started out as an apprentice to the gunsmith Christoph Vogler in 1798. Later he was working as an indigo dyer, and making chairs. By 1807 he was a wheelwright. In 1809 he is listed as the tavern keeper. In 1815 he asked to be relieved of the tavern business. He eventually went into the publishing business, founding Blum's Almanac (published since 1828) and becoming senior editor of The People's Press, a local newspaper. His sons Levi and Edward eventually took over the family business. Levi was sent to Washington in 1833 "for a time in order to perfect himself in his book-printing profession".
