My name is Amiria Gale. I am an artist, teacher and writer from New Zealand. While a stay-at-home mother, I taught myself how to create a website, so that I could share and collate teaching resources for high school Art students. I spent the next few years learning about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – and, through trial and error discovered a way to write content that is visited and shared by millions. Despite only managing to publish 0-3 articles a month, my blog became one of the largest in New Zealand, competing with sites that publish content daily and hire several staff. When my second daughter was born, I rebranded this website as www.studentartguide.com. Student Art Guide site continues to grow, and currently receives half a million monthly pageviews. You can read more about the Student Art Guide’s journey to 500,000 monthly pageviews here. I now run several websites in a range of niches (while continuing to be a stay at home single mother).

As a result of this success, many other New Zealand bloggers and small business owners seek out my advice. This website is an effort to consolidate this advice, allowing me to continue to help others in an efficient way!
