About Me

Kia Ora!
Kia Ora!

My name is Samantha.

I am English, living in Auckland, New Zealand.  My introduction to blogging began when I started writing My Life in NZ to keep in touch with family and friends.  The intention was to write a monthly diary of my incredible journey on the other side of the world.

Why Blogging U?

With plenty of free time at the moment, I joined Blogging 101 and Writing 101 as a great opportunity to fill my time constructively, and at the same time improve my blogging and writing skills.

Collaborative Study Makes It Fun!

I look forward to hearing what you think of My Blogging U assignment posts, please do ‘Follow Me’ and post comments to help me along my journey.

Why Do I Write?

I like to write because:

  • I have an artistic background, I enjoy being creative and writing is creative!
  • In a former career, I was the departments roving reporter and wrote a lot
  • Writing is a technique used in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • As a child I used to write a daily paper diary, as an adult there is no time, until now.

By writing a blog I will be learning and developing my writing style:

  • Trying to be more concise
  • Using my own photos
  • Enjoy creating written imagery
  • Read other bloggers posts.
