Pause due to another project

I will be taking a shorter pause from writing Massage and Wellness articles, while I focus on another project I have been working on for quite a while now. You can read the latest news at:

My great project is of course related to Wellness and I have been busy creating web pages, working on content and writing about the entire process, what the thoughts behind it are and many other things. We will soon be launching, so feel free to visit Taunaki – your resource to wellness at and bookmark it for future reference.

I will be posting some news from Taunaki the coming weeks, though as soon as my workload eases up a bit, I will be back at writing articles about Massage and Wellness. I have several planned and some research going on.

In order to share with you all, here’s a list of the news so far from Taunaki.

Behind the name and logo
What lies behind the name and logo of a company can often be a rather interesting and insightful information. For it was a longer search, both for a suiting name and for the logo. Symbolism and names are very important to us, at least to myself and it wasn’t something I could take lightly. Not to mention, we had to find a name that had the domain available as well.

Behind the idea started as an idea to help people easier find a good massage therapist. It was an idea of ensuring a certain quality to massages and it quickly became obvious that the best way to do such was to base the site on reviews from users who had gotten massages. It was also a desire and an idea of helping people find precisely that type of massage they were looking for.

Why wellness?
Wellness is one of those fancy words of the times we live in. More and more people talk about wellness and it’s become a whole industry that caters to all types of people. It’s become a jungle that’s difficult to see through for most normal people, and even for those professional there’s a lot of disagreements and different perceptions of what wellness is.

Looking for writers is looking for writers who’ll help us expand and grow our collection of articles about wellness.
It’s our hope to gather an expansive collection of articles about wellness written by people who’re in the business. The purpose of the articles is to inform our users about the many offers and help them pick the wellness offer that suits their needs and desires best.

Our values and purpose
When starting a business it’s necessary to know what core values and purposes you want to serve and follow.
The values are the moral guidelines, the foundation of a business that is unlikely to change. The is what is kept first and foremost in mind, helping setting the spirit of the company. Our first focus is our users, to serve their needs and make it easy for them to use the services we provide.

The first milestone
We’re online! As Christmas and New Year are closing in on us, we’re working towards getting the last parts of the system coded and be ready for launch early in the new year.
We are excited about the project which has been on its way for a long while now. The first seeds for the idea were sown over a year ago, and many months were spent planning and doing organisational work before we began coding systems, working on the layout and a domain was bought.

Feel free to leave a comment and contact me if you’re interested in the project. I look forward to hearing inputs and getting opinions.
