Australia Day and Aussie Bloggers Forum

Today, Australia is celebrating Australia Day. Although I'm in the Philippines to visit family, club members, friends, peers, and get some work done, my family in Adelaide will get to observe the celebration as it unfolds today.

One thing that I got to appreciate in Adelaide is the accessibility of Henley Beach which is almost like a 10 minutes drive from our home. It is a great place to relax and spend time with the kids (who is usually online in this school vacation season).

Blogging about one's experience in another country and establish relationship takes time. That is why I find the recently launched Aussie Bloggers Blog as a great opportunity. I'm sure that this will help me in discovering new blogs that can be added to Ratified Australia.

Apart from sharing information, there are also collaborative efforts in the forum to promote fellow bloggers such as the creation of an Aussie blogroll, write a guest post or be interviewed. There is also an incentive in participating. Those who make 20 posts in the forum will also gain access to the Events and Meets forum where one can participate.

Happy Australia Day everyone!

I grew up spending lots of holidays at Henley Beach. Lovely beach and lots of fond memories. Aussie Bloggers is great isn't it. :)

My family have spent many happy afternoons at Grange and Henley Beach. Now that we have moved to Morphett Vale, I haven't worked out what is closest. Luckily we have a backyard pool, which keeps the kids happy. Mabuhay on Australia Day.

Thanks for running my Entrecard and for all your work on Ratified.

I've been blogging for years and have only this week decided to start a blog called Scenic Adelaide. I'm even hosting it on an Aussie server. We had lunch at Henley Beach on Monday and drove down the esplanade. Great day.
