Round the New England blogging traps 1

North Coast Voices continues its eclectic view of the world.

In one post, it reminds us that the Grafton Jacaranda Festival will be on from 24 October to 2 November, something that I must remember myself. Then in 21 Economic Models explained with Cows - 2008 update, it provides a very funny description of different ways of thinking.

The local government elections have been much on NVC's mind, with most candidates (or some it seems) not coming up to scratch.

On LookANDsee, Gordon Smith has been applying his photographic eye to Bellingen. You will find the first post in the series here. Just work forward from here.

Still on Armidale (Gordon lives near Armidale), Keith Burgess's 18th Century Historical Trekking,1700-1760 continues to provide a wealth of information for those interested in the sometimes uncomfortable past time of living history. Or, perhaps, living in history!

Somewhat south, NSW Farmers' Association President Jock Laurie (Walcha) continues to report on NFF activities in his blog. This not a bad way of finding out about rural issues from a NF perspective.

Moving back to the coast, Byron Bay reports on Crime in Byron Bay, something of an issue at the moment for a number of New England communities.

Down in Newcastle, in City branding…why hasn’t Newcastle got a Global Brand Project like Sydney?, Gordon Whitehead calls for the NSW Government to support a Brand Newcastle approach in tourism marketing.

Gordon may be pleased that local member Jodi McKay is now Minister for Tourism and the Hunter. I am sure that she will be getting an education (ear bash?) from him.

More when I get back from China.

Still in Newcastle, Craig Wilson's Media Hunter has rather good post, Newcastle web designers must stop thinking like web designers, that captures some messages that I have been trying to get across as well.
