G'day everyone. It's been three weeks since my last update. (Urgh, I sound like I'm in AA.) Once again, no one has been joining Team Australia and obviously I can't force them to. I'm also not into harassing people, so if no one gets back to me then I have nothing to make a post about. The end.
Except for the daily Travel Digests I author, my own posting has also been on hiatus. I've been tapped out of post ideas lately. Since I have personal standards for my blog I won't make shitposts just for the sake of posting. I would personally rather say nothing than churn out crap just to be seen to be active. Others may disagree. That said, I have a couple of posts I'm mid-way through writing just right now, so hopefully I can get some new content out again soon.
The next monthly meet-up is this Thursday, 26 July. Usual time, usual place—The Jade from 6pm. Details here.
I had my own mini meet-up last week. The lovely @evecab—founder of the vegans of steemit group, and who lives on the Bocas del Torro islands over on the Caribbean side—was in town for one night. We went to dinner at one of Panama City's vegan restaurants and it was great. Once again, I met someone from steemit and it felt like we'd been friends for ages. She'll be back in Panama City in a few weeks and we've got an idea for a collaboration video, so stay tuned for that.

Name and bio
Intro post here.
"Despite being only 18, I have a few white hairs. In fact, they started popping up before I even turned 10!"
Huh, I've never heard of this happening to a 10 year-old. Interesting. On the plus side, you probably won't go bald early. Dudes seem to get one or the other.
Name and bio
Intro post here.
"I have an anxiety/fear of being completely abandoned by everyone I know and being forgotten about."
Jeez. That's a bit heavy. Not really what I had in mind when I asked for a fun fact, but there you go.
Congratulations everyone, you're now part of Team Australia.
The rules for joining Team Australia
If you’re not yet a member and want to be, this is what you need to do:
- Vote here for our resident steemit witness and our Minister for Welfare @ausbitbank.
- Send me your introduction post so I can find out a bit about you. If you’re new to steemit you'll have to write one so use the introduceyourself and teamaustralia tags to help boost your following. Use this handy guide if you don't know what to write.
- If it’s not mentioned in your introductory post, tell me which city and country you’re in, cos let's face it, a lot of us live in Australia's fourth largest city—London. You need to have a connection to Australia to join.
- Tell me a fun fact about yourself. This can be anything. For example, maybe you have eight kids and three dogs, or you rode your bike across America, or you won the blue ribbon for javelin throwing at sports day back in high school, or Toadie came into the pub you work at one day and you served him a beer, or, maybe you can fit 55 maltesers in your mouth like Ed Sheeran can. It doesn’t matter what it is, I want a fun fact about you! The more fun, the better.
- Regularly check the Team Australia and Australia tags and upvote/follow the content you like. You can show your support by following the centerlink curation trail in steemauto. Instructions are here.
- Comment below or DM me in PAL-Discord that you want to join.
Once I receive this information I will try my best to write a good introductory paragraph about you for the official Team Australia membership updates. So the better your information is, the better I can make you sound. Where relevant, please use the teamaustralia and australia tags to promote your work. I will try and post weekly updates.
