Get involved and use blogging & social media to support Christchurch #blog4nz

by Shannon on March 10, 2011


This is a bit of a quick follow Friday post for a good cause.  A couple of members of the travel writing industry have got together and started an initiative called blog for NZ (follow this topic on twitter #blog4nz).

It’s a pretty simple concept. From the 21st to the 23rd of March travel writers around NZ and the world are asked to write positive travel oriented articles about travel in New Zealand and the Canterbury region to show off our great country and stimulate tourism post quake.

The project is great example of an industry community working together. It is also another example of an initiative starting via social media and quickly getting attention in the main stream news.

You can help about by

  • Going to the Blog4nz website and offering to write a post or publish a post for someone else.
  • Head on over to the Facebook page, follow it and like your favorite posts once they are up.
  • Follow the hashtag #blog4nz on twitter and do a bit of Re-tweeting.

Good work @craig_martin, @xebidy, @nevjmc and John Reese (sorry John, I could not find your twitter handle)
