I’ve got a new blog going, with a very specific purpose. Please click here, and check regularly for updates. I’ll do some cross-posting, but everything Sydney-related will be up on the Send Me To Sydney blog.
Sydney? What? Huh? I know, it came as a surprise to me, too. A few weeks ago I got an email out of the blue, asking if I wanted to be part of a competition that could end with me winning two sets of tickets to Australia. Oddly enough, I did want to be part of such a competition–offer me free travel and I drool like a hungry dog. So now here I am, setting up a new blog, making up hamster-and-cricket-related pub games, and waiting to see what happens next.
If I win, I’ll use the trip as a reason to write not just for myself but for a community of people who are interested in Sydney, interested in my work, or just interested in the world. So if you read this blog (or even if you don’t), please check out the new site. Your feedback, comments, and ideas will be invaluable. The competition is about creativity, but it’s sponsored in part by the chaps at 1000heads, and I it’s fair to say it’s also about making connections with people–something that blogging, above any other form of writing, is made for.
