At last! An internet magazine for you!
Welcome! This is an internet magazine and social networking site for mature Australians.
It’s designed for those of us over 45. It’s designed with you in mind so you can receive the news information and entertainment relevant to you and communicate with people of your age or era if you want to.
It concentrates on we Australians - there are other sites out there which have an international or American flavour, but few if any which deal with Australian issues and information relevant to those of us who live ‘down under’. It is built and moderated by mature Aussies in touch with issues which affect us ‘cheddas’ – those of us who, like cheese, get better with age.
It's also clear from speaking to mature Australians - cheddas, as we call them - that many feel disenfranchised by the web experience and find it difficult or time-consuming to locate sites of specific interest to them in the veritable mountain of sites generally designed for the majority of web surfers, the young.
As well, those sites we did find for mature Australians are either morbidly boring government sites, medical sites that advise on what tube should be stuck up what orifice and when, or sell 'end of useful life' services!
Like you, we know that cheddas still have a lot of life still in them and want information, news and entertainment to enrich their lives. Thus chedda.com.au is designed as a “one stop” internet magazine site for mature Australians which we hope you'll find stimulating, interesting – and most appropriately, humorous. We hope it provides an enriching view of life for mature Australians so that will want you to come back and visit us often, interact with other ‘cheddas’, and benefit from the information, news and entertainment provided.
You will find our internet magazine richly populated. (Run your mouse over the titles in our navigation bar above -- as the 'drop down' boxes appear, move your mouse down to an item of interest to go direct to that page. We also list our newer offerings below this text, or in the text to the right.) You'll also find our site is heavily 'media' rich, including extensive photography, and easily accessible audio and video. Importantly, this is not a 'static' site; we're adding new content weekly - and in some cases - daily.
Below are thumbnails of the latest additions to Chedda with links to the pages where you can read more.
If you're new to Chedda, we encourage you to check out our site by clicking on the titles in our menu bar above, or further explore the subjects within each title by clicking on items in the drop-down boxes which appear as you run your mouse-pointer over the titles.
For those of you on return visits to this site, we list our latest updates below, and in the body of our text, below left. Just spool down the page...
WE'VE ALSO ADDED a blog to Chedda where you can see what's new and provide feedback. Go to our what's new? page where the blog can be seen - and if you click on the RSS FEED BUTTON in the right hand column, YOU'LL BE UPDATED AUTOMATICALLY when we post new updates and comments!
