Knock knock. Hello, anyone here? Any bloggers around? So, why would the world be boring without Bloggers? A somewhat duller, less lively, less honest version of its current state. Because Bloggers are creative, bright, loud, quirky, funny and well the hottest thing since caramel off the stove. Bloggers in their most honest form are more than merely entertaining. Why? I guess it is because their blog’s are a direct reflection in the world of who they are in words and photographs.
The Inside of a blog
Have you ever wondered how a blog post happens? Time, travel, effort, creativity and trying to combine all this into something people may want to read. Plugins (like apps for a blog) that constantly have to be updated to make things work like they should, your media library, your actual writing (and don’t forget to get your SEO tweaking right too). And that’s after you have put your blog post together.
If you are like me, you may still be digging around on the web to find some interesting bloggers. So, I thought I would introduce you to three of my Favourite Bloggers. Without further ado……..

What is your blog addy? : At the moment the URL is still ceecestaxi.wordpress.com. When I first started out I was travelling via public taxi only and thus came the url, but since we have grown so much and have gotten involved in various industries, people just generally google Ceeces Travel and I pop up.
Where can you be found on social media? : In order of most active:
How did you get into blogging? : I have always been a writer. It’s been my number one form of emotional expression since I could read and write as a child. My father was also a journalist, my mother a teacher and my godfather an architect. One day my god-sister suggested that I put my writing online and start a blog. And so I did. Within a few months, companies started approaching me, people started meeting me and I took my education in the digital world further by self studying social media, digital marketing and entrepreneurship.
What do you blog about and why that? : Everything? Ha ha ha ha we’re always told to choose a niche but I have found that If I am just me, it works better. I do everything from tech, events, beauty, and especially travel.
Something about you that we may not know. : I am adopted. I was one of South Africa’s first 100 Cross Culturally adopted babies before 1994. I speak English and Afrikaans. I have a love of cars, but more if they’re old school or muscle. Not so much super cars and carbon fiber.
Who is your favorite blogger? : What is this question even? Roflol there are WAY to many bloggers who all provide something special to my day, I couldn’t single out anyone.
Where do you live? : Kwa Zulu Natal BabY! I am a proud Durbanite, born and bred!
What is your favourite thing locally to do? : TRAVEL
Favourite food? : Sushi
Your favourite band / kind of music? : Again, I danced for many years (ballet, modern, hip hop and tap) that taught me to listen to music to appreciate different kinds of music. I don’t favor one over the other, they all speak different languages.
What is your next adventure? : Well, we actually have news. We are launching a new brand and media house in August 2016. I can’t say much about it yet nor tell you it’s name, but keep an eye out on my social media and my business partner and photographer, Al Nicoll’s facebook page or click here for his website . It’s going to be amazing.
