And the winner is…

An Apology

A fortnight ago now, I announced a competition to reward my awesome Facebook fans as well as hopefully drum up a few extra followers for Aussie on the Road. Over the fortnight the contest has been running, Aussie on the Road has picked up close to fifty new fans.

It remains to be seen how many of those were picked up by my somewhat controversial (and very raunchy) Top 15 Travel Blogging Crushes post. The interest that humble entry drew has been insane. And true to form, the controversy seems to have comes from girls I excluded. I really should have just made it a top fifty…

See? I can be a sexy blogger too!

So, apologies must go out to the lovely Brooke from Brooke vs the World, pocket rocket Annie from Wayward Traveller, saucy Cailin from Cailin Travels, beautiful Diane from D Travels Round, those hot bitches from Miss Adventures, the gorgeous Kieu from GQ Trippin’, the awe-inducing Lauren from The Life That Broke, stunning Amy from Don’t Ever Look Back, the Pinay perfection of Claire from Lakwatsera de Primera and Gaye from Pinay Travel Junkie, suave older gentleman Byron from Byron & His Backpacks, the hilarious (and strangely arousing) Candice from Candice Does the World, and anybody else I’ve accidentally omitted.

The point of the entry wasn’t to objectify or to actually categorize the girls out there. It was meant to be an amusing and tongue in cheek read with just a little bit of perve value for the boys.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out Candice’s hilarious response to the recent rash of ‘hot blogger’ posts.

Enough already! Who won?

Oh yeah, I promised to announce a winner today too.

First of all, a big thanks to everybody who entered and gunned for additional points by Tweeting about the contest and sharing the link on their walls. I owe you all a beer whenever our paths next cross. You’re legends.

If I were a richer man, I’d have bought everybody something – but I’m a poor son of a bitch and so only one of you gets to take home the $50 worth of Lonely Planet goodness.

So, without further ado, the winner is…

Congratulations to Tamara Ferguson on winning the contest and picking up $50 to spend how she likes at the Lonely Planet store. Take a look at what’s on offer and shoot me an email or Facebook message to let me know what to order.

I daresay a few books on Europe might be forthcoming…

Thanks again to everybody who entered and keep your eyes peeled for more contests in the future. Have a good weekend!

       The Human Sponge? I didn’t realize that was a thing.

      Is it a sequel to The Human Centipede? >_>

    Oh I’ve been to Nice and the isle of Greece where I sipped champagne on a yacht. I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed ‘em what I got. :)

      Yay! I was glad when I saw your name had come up. We’ve never met, but you’re a cool chick and you’ve always been fun to chat with. Glad I could help you broaden your European experience!

    Okay, new favourite travel blogger. *subscribe* 

    That photo of you in make-up is positively arousing.
