RED on the web!

On 3rd February 2010 when my first post Red Nomad OZ is GO! hit the blogosphere, I had NO IDEA how my life would change.

For the better, of course!!

Over two years later, my passion for sharing the good bits of travelling downunder in the wonderful land of OZ is still going strong.  So strong, it sometimes spills over into other blogs and forums!

Here's where I've been seen (most recent first):

Journey Jottings

After seeing the Journey Jottings products I adore in many places around Australia, I offered to write a guest post with the 2012 highlights as a follow up to my 2011 My Journey Jottings Aussie Odyssey post.  Only problem was getting round to it ...  By the time I DID, it was April, so my 2013 Joining the Dots with Journey Jottings post covered 6 HOT places in 5 OZ states I'd been in the last 12 months!



Carnamah Historical Society Blog

Too many coincidences is the sign of a poor writer, but my 2012 visit to the West Australian wheat belt town where my mother was brought up was FULL of them!!  Not least of which was finding George, the Carnamah Historical Society president who knew more about my family history than I did ... so it was my pleasure to write a guest post for the Carnamah Historical Society blog:  All Roads lead to George



Explore Australia   

It was an honour to write another guest post for Explore Australia.  As if they hadn't already had enough punishment!  Being a seeker of solitude made finding 5 Summer Beaches away from the Crowds too easy - because I'd already done the research!!



Glove Box Blog

It was my privilege to be interviewed by the fabulous Fiona for Argus Car Hire's travel blog.  The Glove Box Interview regularly features travel bloggers and writers - and I used the opportunity to plug Australia to the max!  Take the link to my Glove Box Interview to answer that pressing question:  Do I, or do I NOT give good interview?!?!?!


City Daily Photo

The wonderful Julie Storry from The Sydney Eye was kind enough to encourage me to join the City Daily Photo community AND be interviewed for her 'In Focus' feature!  Oddly enough, she makes specific mention of the necessity for editing out exclamation marks ... weird, huh!  Not everyone appreciates how much of a heavy burden being the Exclamation Mark Queen can be!!  Read the Introduction, then go to the Detail if you DARE!



Get in the Hot Spot

When Annabel Candy visited Central Australia for the first time, she fell in love.  So she asked me to write about the 5 Hottest Travel Spots in Outback OZ to show the rest of the world how RED Australia can get!  But I went one better and wrote a companion piece on my blog highlighting the 5 Cool BLUE OZ Top Spots!  Read them both, and decide for yourself what's best!!



Explore Australia   

I can't thank the Explore Australia team enough for giving me the chance to tell the world what's wrong with my blog!  But you can avoid my mistakes - all you have to do is read Confessions of a Tween-Age Travel Blogger!!


Infinity Pool, Cairns
52 Perfect Days.com

What a thrill to be asked for an article about a perfect day in Australia by predominantly US-based site 52 Perfect Days!  But how to choose just one perfect destination from OZ? 

I settled on Cairns, Far North Queensland for  A Perfect Day Up North Downunder!



Poddy Creek Free Camp, Outback QLD
Explore Australia   

In 2011, I was nominated for the Explore Australia Road Trippers Hall of Fame award AND ended up a finalist!  Explore Australia interviewed me for their blog:

Red on Red, Windorah, Outback QLD
Get In the HotSpot!

Inspiring, intrepid and intriguing traveller Annabel Candy featured Amazing Australian Adventures in her blog post - 25 Australian Travel Blogs and Bloggers to Watch in 2012!







Recording the trip on my Map Journal
Journey Jottings

I LOVE Journey Jottings uniquely Australian map journals and other products, and I've seen them in some weird and wonderful places!  Linda published my guest post My Journey Jottings Aussie Odyssey listing some of the interesting spots I saw her products in 2011.





Red Outback Road, Windorah, QLD
Holes in My Soles

I was honoured to be featured on Jim's wonderful Holes in my Soles blog - My FavouRED Things #2 coincided with a colour theme!  RED Rocks!!







Not BBQ, but char-grill is close enough!
TexaGermaFinlaNadian

When I first encountered hockey wife Texa's blog, she was living in Germany with Canadian hubby.  Her Frackin' Friday posts were required reading for her international audience to learn cuss words and slang from many different languages - even more when she moved to Finland!  Here's my contribution - Aussie Barbecue slang!!





Windmill, Thargomindah
Rocky Australia Travel Blog

I've learned a lot about how other people see Australia from non-Aussie Michela's excellent Australian travel blog. 

So I was honoured that she published my guest post about possibly the ultimate 'Australian' destination - Thargomindah!

Reflections

As blogger and photographer Jidhu Jose's 35th victim interviewee, I answered the same 6 questions he asks everyone!

The Thargo Thunderbox
An Ache for the Distance

My first ever guest post - and it just HAD to be part of my Australian Scenic Public Toilet series!!  Weirdly, blogger Stuart seemed to like what I revealed the mysteries of the Thargo Thunderbox!  And it stopped me from having #13 on MY blog ...
