I’ve made it to g.blog!

Hello and welcome to my first post on g.blog. I’ve been a Green Party member since 2005, and now in 2008 at the ripe old age of 18 I’ve decided to run as a candidate this election. Therefore it feels fitting that I jump on the gblog bandwagon as it takes off into New Zealand blog greatness.

So now that I’ve shown how articulate I am (thanks to NCEA) with a fantastic opening paragraph, here’s a little more about me so we can get to know each other before my first proper post. I am currently in Ottawa, Canada visiting family as part of a four month trip I am undertaking this year. This is the last leg, after visiting Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico. By September 5 I will be back in Wellington hitting the campaign trail in earnest.

I’ve been blogging the whole time on my person blog, which is called Zackarate Island. So if you want un-censored Zack, that’s where to go. Otherwise, from now on, I will post the best stuff on gblog. Here’s some more links for you though: the Second Global Greens Congress in May was what took me to Brazil in the first place, and I blogged about it here, and the related Global Young Greens meeting here. Also, if you want even more Zack, visit my Facebook Page. And, just so that I feel we’ve really gotten to know each other, I’ve included a photo of myself above. Yes it may look like a holiday snap, but I was in the Amazon, and that is very relevant. Going somewhere like that is truly inspiring. We really need to take better care of our world.

About zacharydorner

I'm an 18 year old running as a candidate for the Green Party this election. This is because I care deeply about the world around us - the planet and the people who live on it. I also care deeply about the fact that young people - especially those under 18 - are so poorly represented in our "democratic" institutions. My personal blog is zackarateisland.blogspot.com, but I will contribute here as I see relevant to keep all you beautiful readers of gblog informed.

    I lent mine to Zack cause he is such a great guy.

  2. Hey Zack!

    Good to finally get here myself, that’s not bad for a first post; I love the subtle lilypads in the Amazonian waters behind you, a nice hat-tip for ‘frogs’ of all shapes & sizes! ๐Ÿ˜‰
