Aussie Bloggers Podcast began as an inspirational dream by two Aussie Bloggers – Tan and Amanda – who wanted to show case the Australian talent in the world of blogging.
Tanja is a Digital Consultant and podcaster who supports individuals and small businesses in using Technology.
Her passion is empowering women who are not sure where to go with technology, by teaching and training in Podcasting, WordPress, blogging, producing digital products such as ebooks and building online courses.
She manages the front end of WordPress builds and works between her clients and her developers, ensuring the whole process of building a website runs smoothly for both parties. She manages builds from simple blogs to complex membership and e-commerce sites. By holding her client’s hand every step of the way, she makes every technology task simple and easy for them.
She has won numerous awards for her work in technology and education, and in the past, held the position of chair of the Girls in IT committee, helping raise awareness in IT career paths for girls finishing high school.
She’s based in Brisbane, Australia, where she received her original qualifications of formal education and holds a Diploma of Teaching, Bachelor of Education, and Master of Education (Information Technology).
She is also a Certified Trainer and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming which she uses to help clients overcome the fear of new technologies.
“I am a big believer in personal and professional learning and growth, whether it is via formal face to face education, blended delivery or through online learning. I have completed my education through all these avenues and have delivered thousands of hours of education this way as well. This has taught me that everyone learns differently, and I strive to cater to everyone’s individual needs.”
During her time of learning and teaching, she has received many many certificates, awards and appreciation for her work, including the prestigious Queensland, Outstanding Teacher Excellence Award for ICTs in Education.
Amanda is an entrepreneur by nature and a BAS Agent with My Office Books. She specialises in online accounting, bookkeeping and using technology to save time, reduce stress and empower small to medium business owners.
