Papers! Papers please!

I imagine you're getting tired of the constant announcements on Michael's Meanderings about the great publicity that the hireMICHAELforHamiltonIsland.com campaign has been getting for Tourism Queensland.  I mean, it has been featured on the Internet, local and national radiolocal and national television and now, at long last, a newspaper.

Today's Whitehorse Star had a half-page article on my application and "The Best Job on Earth".  You can read a printable version of the article online.

There are only ten days left for people to submit an application for the Island Caretaker job.  Well over 10,000 videos have been submitted, but not all of them are "tasteful enough" to be put on the site.  I wonder who has the pleasant job of screening them.  I also wonder when someone will make a bundle of money producing a "Wild and Naughty Australian Job Applicants" compilation video...

Now who could tire of your charming and oh so tenacious self-promotion:)

P.S. I guess you've been clicking on those other videos and giving them higher ratings, hmmmm.

I just wish Tourism Queensland knew how much exposure they're getting in Canada because of your video....it just doesn't show up on your viewings on their site. Darn it!!!!
