Goodbye and Thanks for Reading! 8

Oh what a year it has been!

Another year you say? Yes, already 2015 has zoomed by us and 2016 is fast approaching. It’s been a big one for me personally, with my mini pikinini future canasta world champion arriving in May. While this was very exciting, it meant that The Pineapple Post took a tumble down my priority list somewhat.

As I was out of the country a lot this year I owe a great debt to the lovely ladies of the International Tea Group for helping me keep the website operating from afar. But it’s now with a heavy heart that I’ve decided to hand in my imaginary journalist credentials and retire as editor of The Pineapple Post. Since May, my free time has just never been the same. I hate to be cliché but seriously, how does something so small take up so much of the day?!?

The website had been a fantastic hobby over the past two years, helping me get out and about, exploring Solomon Islands and meeting new people. I’m eternally grateful to everyone who supported the idea and/or provided content for the blog.

If anyone is interested in taking on The Pineapple Post, drop me a line at It’s a little bit of work but a huge bringer of joy.

A big thanks to all the lovely people (named below) who so generously provided their stories, photos, events, and experiences in 2015 – you are superstars!

  1. Congratulations to the new babe and your work on Pineapple Post. Maybe somebody will pick up and make a new mag. I thoroughly enjoyed my years with Coconut News and now write a monthly e-magazine Fifty Five Plus.
    Every best wish
