Oooh… on Friday I’m off to Australia for a month-long research stay, and I only just now find out (via Tama) about the Australian Blogging Convention, to be held on September 28 in Brisbane, a mere 4000 or so kilometres from the airport from which we’ll be leaving Australia on that very day… Too bad it’s too late to change those flights…

Can’t wait to get to Australia – just gotta get to all the last minute details… ‘scuse me while I pack.

    Hi Jill,
    Hope you have a great time in Oz! I’m from Perth in Western Australia – where every single thing is a mere 4000 or so kms away! I also recently stumbled upon info about the Blogging Convention and am trying to think of a way there. Exhausted all of the illegal options and now waiting for inspiration to hit in the form a ticket with my name on it suddenly appearing on my doorstep…
    S..
