As well as working full time, and looking after three small children, I also manage a facebook page and a blog otakizilchoo.blogspot.co.uk coming up with new topics is the easy part, finding the time to write the articles, well that's the challenge! So I needed to come with a way to help me create more interesting blogs that the local community would be interested in, but at the same time find a solution for the age-old problem of not enough hours in the day.

I turned my blog page into a community blog, asking the local community if they'd like to write about their personal experiences, stories, and adventures.
The answer, Collaboration!
The response was fantastic, I saw my blog turn from a simple blog about the local town to a place where people could share their story with the community. The people of Otaki, New Zealand are very passionate about their town, they engage online and always support positive stories.
