Well, it looks as though I've taken another step towards my dreams of Queensland. My application for the Best Job in the World has been accepted.
From here on in, people have to go the site and cast their vote by 'rating' the video on the five-star bar. It looks as though you can only vote once, so I hope you'll make that first attempt count. They'll announce the top ten plus a 'wild card' on March 2nd.
I'm not holding my breath on this, especially because I've seen a lot of the other applications. Nearly everyone has used editing and special effects galore. My all-in-one-minute take was based on the thought: what would I be able to do at Hamilton Island in an ongoing blog? I knew I wouldn't be able to pull off a lot of fancy stuff, so figured go for the plain-and-simple and play on my strengths (writing and blogging).
Okay, if you want to see it (and hopefully, cast a vote for me) here's the link that should take you directly to my little vid.
And hey, if you feel like sharing this with others, I'd appreciate all the help I can get!
