Finally, we’re here! Taunaki is launching and I’m all excited about it. It’s an event I’ve worked towards for more than a year. And since September I’ve been working more or less full time on the project. It’s been a very exciting process, very interesting and it’s taught me a lot. I must admit I’ve greatly enjoyed the work in spite of frustrations and stress.
So, what is Taunaki?
Taunaki is your resource to Wellness. It’s a website dedicated to Wellness. It’s meant to be a complete guide to Wellness in all forms and shapes. There are two core products which are available at launch.
Business listings with user reviews. Think of the restaurant guides there are out there and apply that to Wellness. Users rate and write reviews about Wellness providers and other users can search and find the one they want to try out. The content is determined by the users, and for now no business can be listed without a review to back it up. The site is for the users primarily. The business can be anything related to wellness. The local spa, a massage therapist, the yoga studio, the personal trainer, a course in healthy cooking. Anyone who works with wellness. Again, it comes down to the users to decide who are listed and who’re relevant.
The other part is articles. Our aim is to create a large database with articles about wellness in all forms and shapes. Educative and informative writings covering everything from describing massage styles, to why organic food is good for you, stress reduction, positive thinking, exercise routines and you name it. Anyone who’s an expert in their field or knowledgeable about wellness are welcome to participate and provide articles, as long as they live up to the requirements of covering wellness and be informative in order to help the users.
We have many other things planned for Taunaki with time, such as creating a community and forums for discussions about wellness. But the core product is the reviews and articles. The rest will be icing on the cake.
I look forward to hearing your feedback and see you on Taunaki.
