About Content Catnip

Content Catnip is a quirky internet wunderkammer written by an Intergalactic Space Maori named Content Catnip, although that’s not what’s really on my birth certificate.

I meander through the quirky and curious aspects of anthropology, science, natural history, content marketing, art, music, books, philosophy, travel, Maori culture and loads more. This blog has been my labour of love for the past six years.


Below is my Maori introduction to who I am, in both Maori and English.

What is a pepeha in Maori culture? How can I write one?

    1. Hi Eric, thank you so much for nominating me, I really appreciate that. I’m not surprised that you won it as you know how to put together good posts – well done. Will keep this in mind for future participation, I have never heard of these awards before.

      1. Neither did I until I was nominated. If you click on the image in my post it will take you to the site for the Versatile Blogger Award. The address is

        I’ll admit that I was a little wary at first but after reading about it I found it’s legit. Many of the blogs I’m following have won the award and lots of others besides.

        The best thing is you’re not obligated to participate. However, since I placed the post this afternoon I picked up about 7 followers and I’ve had the best traffic day since I started my blog just over 2 weeks ago.

        Makes me wonder…

  1. Dear, how lovely to be in touch again.
    Your ‘about’ is very interesting to me and in time I may need to ask you lots of questions,
    but first I must read your posts πŸ™‚

  2. HI! Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking something and following. I am enjoying my visit to yours. You certainly demonstrate the meaning of ‘eclectic.’ Great fun!

    1. Hey Tony, not a problem! I am so glad that I found you through a Google search actually, your blog is a wealth of information on health. Really glad you like my blog too, yes it’s a bit like a Turkish Bazaar full of treasures, I can’t possibly keep it to only a few things because too many things interest me hehe

      1. Thanks for your kind words. I think of my blog the same way. As a former newsman I am amazed at the ‘evergreen’ nature of much of what I write. I look forward to more visits to your Turkish Bazaar.

  3. I LOVE your blog’s new look! πŸ™‚ Not sure exactly how new it is since I’ve been gone from wordpress for a while, but thought I’d mention anyway!

      1. I’ve been great! Worked through a lot of stuff in the last year. I feel better than ever πŸ™‚ How are you? What’s new? <3

  4. Greetings Catnip,
    Hope all is well.
    This is not really my usual thing, but I’ve nominated you for a web-log award (actually, you’ve won a melodramatically-titled blogging award – yay!), and it’d be sweet if you checked it out. You are under NO obligation to do anything; but you have been named as a web-log I value. Take that howsoever you choose, and I hope you enjoy!

  5. Hi Catnip I just started skimming through your posts and I love your focus and commentary. I look forward to exploring your site and reading your thoughts. Best, Brett

    1. Hi Brett thanks so much for coming and reading my blog, I really love yours too and you’re doing a great job of selling Canada to me..I’ve never been but have always wanted to and your posts are going to make that happen rather quickly, have a great weekend
