Kia ora! I'm Anjali, a New Zealander blogger with a love for books, travel, creative projects and sharing my 10+ years of blogging with others. In 2008 a friend suggested I start a blog, and the rest, as they say, is history. Books, travel, and creative projects are some of my favourite things to talk about on This Splendid Shambles, as well as providing resources, guides, and top tips for blogging (whether you’ve just started or you've been in the blogging world a while). Throw all those things together and you have this mishmash of topics and posts to keep you entertained, encouraged and inspired. I welcome you to join me as I venture through this splendid shambles I call life.
