G-Day Mate!

Auckland-CityOfSails.jpgWhat started out as a once-city venture just keeps on growing. Metroblogging today announced the launch of their 51st city-specific blog community in Auckland, New Zealand.

While Auckland represents a brand new country for Metroblogs, it is actually the second blog focussed on the ever-interesting Australasian continent (following Melbourne). The blog is sure to flourish as its first writer, BigNosedUglyGuy, has the experience of helping to launch Metroblogging London under his belt.

If you get a chance, stop by Auckland and say “G’Day!” I know, I know, that is more of an Aussie thing, but that is the only cheesy reference I can think of! Give me a break.

    I’m sure New Zealanders will be happy to hear that it is part of Australia.

    I think they prefer the term JAFA, or perhaps Sheep-shagger, as all good Kiwi’s are known.

    Oh hahaha Mik, the Aussies are the sheep-shaggers.

    Naoh – the phrase you’re looking for (but quite rightly don’t know cos it isn’t in English) is “Kia ora”.
