Hi Justyn

Just recently landed in the land of the long white cloud, and settling in to Christchurch Justyn will be bringing an international flavour to the get together. We're excited to have another 'new' Christchurch blogger joining in. www.duniaduara.com


My name is Justyn Rebecca Denney Strother

Where do you live? Lyttelton, Christchurch NZ

What are 5 words that describe your blog? Family, Homeschool, Photography, Design, Travel

Why did you decide to come to this get together? We Just moved to New Zealand, after years of living for a few years as international travelers. We moved here sight unseen, with our four children, and have been finding our feet for the last 2 months. I have been blogging since 2005 and when we first began researching a possible move to New Zealand blogs were the first place I looked for information and connection. I thought this conference would be a great way to meet people and also as a way to bring my blogging a New Zealand flavour after years of North America and East Africa ;)

What do you most hope to take away from the weekend? I do not have any particular expectations. I am looking forward to meeting new people and leaving inspired but nothing more specific than that.

What is your biggest hurdle to coming? None.

Do you know any of the other bloggers who are coming? There are a few blogs that I occasionally read but no bloggers that I have met as of yet. Then again, we have only been here a couple of months ;)

Would you describe yourself as an introvert or an extrovert? I am an extrovert on the outside but an introvert at heart. I love being around people but tend to prefer to be in my own home and space.

If you were to participate in a reality TV show or competition TV show – what would it be? And why?  Hmmmm. I have not had a TV since my eldest daughter was born 12 years ago so I am not up on the options but we were asked to participate in House Hunters International. For obvious reasons - we moved ;)

Have you been to Christchurch before? (unless you live here of course!)  I had never been to New Zealand before landing on Aotearoan soil, just before Christmas.
