Blogcademy Auckland: Kiwis Taking Over!

Blogcademy Auckland: Kiwis Taking Over!

I can’t even begin to describe how thrilling it was to bring The Blogcademy to my homeland, New Zealand. I was beyond excited to show Shauna and Kat where I grew up, and introduce them to some rad Kiwis! Thankfully — but not surprisingly — our NZ blogcadettes were a damn good crop. They did me proud!

Class was held at the undeniably cool Generator, down near Britomart. I left Auckland in 2006, and it’s incredible to see how much the area has changed, developed and evolved in that time. What a cool little area!

I like to think we spoiled our blogcadettes rotten with our goodie bags. They were pretty cool…
