The fermentation hype

I have recently started blogging for Symbiota, a company that is all about food fermentation. Continue reading if you’d like to know more about fermented lunchbox ideas.

I have recently started writing blogs for a friend who runs a very successful business that evolves around fermentation. Apart from eating sauerkraut I didn’t know much about fermenting foods at all, but the more I research about it, the keener I become on trying it myself.

The first blog I wrote for Symbiota was all about fermented lunchbox treats. If you have the right tools, it’s actually pretty easy to create some really yummy, healthy and beneficial snacks for yourself and your family!

If you want to know more about how to ferment food, why it is super beneficial for your health and overall wellbeing, check out Amber’s website and stay tuned for more blog posts.

Traditional Wedding Party Roles

When the bride and groom to be have set the date, the work for the wedding party only just begins. But who is actually responsible for what? Find out more about traditional wedding party roles.

I haven’t published anything for a while, but not because I haven’t written anything. On the contrary. I am struggling to keep you guys updated with all the happenings, so I will slowly try and catch up with blog posts I have completed over the last few months.

This one here I particularly enjoyed writing. It’s for a company called Collective Concepts. They specialize in wedding planning, event management and brand engagement. Today’s post is about the traditional roles of the wedding party.

Since I have never been married, I found this quite interesting and certainly learned a lot. Of course there is so much more involved than just the bride and groom exchanging their vows and saying YES to each other.

From the moment they set a date, the work behind the scenes only just begins. And the roles – traditionally – are quite clear. Everyone has their part to play, from the respective families of bride and groom to be to the Man and Maid Of Honour, the bridesmaids, groomsmen and more.

If you’d like to find out more, please find the link to the article below.

What’s up with Google Ads and the Amazon tax?

Have you heard of the latest changes to Google Ads? And what’s up with the so-called Amazon tax that comes into effect this year? Find out more…

My latest article for Energise Web was a bit challenging. I am only just familiarizing myself with Google Ads, and I had never before heard of an Amazon tax. However, I enjoyed writing this one even more so because it taught me a lot about what’s to come and what to look out for.

The bottom line with the so-called Amazon tax is, that starting this tear, Kiwis will have to start paying GST on goods bought online through international websites such as Amazon, Ebay, Wish and many more.

How it all works, why it could or could not be in your favour and who is going to benefit from this decision most, is what I’ve explained in the following blog post. It also covers changes to Google Ads which will affect businesses residing in New Zealand.

As usual, if there is anything you would like to add or if you have any comments, please throw them in the field provided below.
