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):
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
All Roads lead to George
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 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
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!!
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|
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|
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:
Interview Part 1: We chatted with Red Nomad OZ ...
Interview Part 2: Travel Tips and Favourite Spots
|Red on Red, Windorah, Outback QLD|
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|
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|
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!|
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!!
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!

|The Thargo Thunderbox|
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 ...
