For the past 18 months I have been part of a local community team who look after all the news and events in the Roath area of Cardiff. We are a small but dedicated team who research, plan and write about everything to do with Roath. We love the area that we live in and we enjoy sharing the local news and events with Roath residents and businesses. We are roathcardiff.net!
I am not a writer on the team but the ‘technical-guru’ that I have been affectionately named. I mostly look after the tech side of the website that includes the running and maintenance of the site, website analytics, Facebook and Pinterest pages plus I’m a Social Media Surgeon for the team. It’s a huge amount of fun to be part of RoathCardiff and humbling too when we are recognised for the work we do. Last Thursday was a huge moment for us when RoathCardiff.net was featured on the local news, Wales Today, as part of a news piece about hyperlocal bloggers. I have included some screengrabs of the news piece as the iPlayer link has expired.
