Dive Mistress by Tara Sutherland

Tara Sutherland is another blog writer that I’m already familiar with through other Social Media channels such as Twitter and Instagram. In Tara’s case, I wasn’t actually aware that she was such an avid blog writer until a mutual friend introduced us. It turns out that Tara, based in Auckland, is very busy online; managing to maintain a healthy blog, Facebook Page, Google+ Page, Twitter account and Flickr profile,...

I’ve been meaning to add a summary of Simone’s blog to this website for a while now as, from my own point of view at least, on a professional level she’s at the forefront of Social Media in New Zealand – responsible for ASB’s award-winning Virtual Branch on Facebook – and on a personal level I’m a big fan of her work.

Particularly as, for many people, blogs about food (cooking, recipes, food photography, etc.) are the first type of blog that many people come across. And also because of that Julie and Julia (or was it Julia and Julie) movie where Meryl Streep puts on that really annoying voice. Many of us have...

Jason also provides a web design blog that can be accessed through his website. The blog not only provides an avenue for Jason to discuss web design but is also a place where Jason posts about other goings-on...
