This is a blog about a journey through Australia to find how different people live in various environments.
This blog has two purposes. A) to document a variety of people 'from squats to mansions', in various settings 'the bush to the sea' in their own words and b) my personal experience in engaging with these people in these environments.
This is being driven by my passion of this country, its epic landscapes and its weird and wonderful inhabitants.
Down the track, I want this blog to essentially be a book with a profile photo of the person (or persons) in their environment, with a caption of their quotes. I will be learning how to use a digital SLR to use these photos for the wordpress blog and hopefully, book.
I hope the viewer sees a far more diverse view of this country, in its environment, people and lifestyles (by choice or otherwise) than may be otherwise shown by mainstream media, as essentially this is a journey.
I don't yet have any files to add, as the photos and interviews will begin in one months' time. In June & July I will travel through the desert (Sydney - Adelaide - Alice - Darwin). I will continue the journey later in the year or next year.
I am thinking of posting partial interviews on youtube with ads to attract some funding to continue the journey.
Photos will be a big part of the blog. Videos perhaps less so but as mentioned above, possibly on youtube.
I am very keen to get advice on bringing this idea together and getting the blog up asap, so I can attract people to meet with and document. I will also be setting up a twitter account, as it was advised to me.
Additional Project Description:

To clarify the needs of this project, I don't need a wordpress template designed. It is more the implementation of a wordpress theme which I am happy to discuss and choose with the chosen freelancer.
I will likely be hosting on ventraip.com.au.
The lack of design will drastically reduce the time and cost associated with the project.
The wordpress page also should not be very complicated. This is not a sales website, it will not need many pages or tabs. However, for people to search for me in Google and find this page and contact is one of the most important features. As well as the ability to have a discussion on the content documented.
