A to Z Challenge: S

Posted by AJ Blythe at Saturday, April 21, 2012
S is for South Australia and Swag

 A swag is a bundle of belongings rolled and carried on the back of a traveller on foot. A modern swag is a waterproof canvas sleeping compartment that is sometimes insect-proof.
South Australia is the state in the central south of the country. Well known for its wine, the state has amazing geography from its coast to its desert inland.

I love these lil' bits of information. People in America use "swag" in an entirely different manner. Right now it means that someone is cool or they are extremely charming. I can't wait to tell people what the term means in Australia.

Wow. I had no idea Americans used 'swag' as a word. Fascinating how differently it is used. Thanks for sharing, Marquita.

Australia seems like such an amazing country. It's one of the countries I'd really like like to visit one day.
Thanks for following my blog.
I'm now following your blog.
If you are interested in encouraging more followers, my suggestion would be to move your follower widget up higher on the sidebar so it's one of the first things visitors see. Above the "Blog Archive" would be good.
Let's face it--a lot of people are too lazy to look for a follower widget. If it's one of the first things they see they might be more apt to follow.
Good luck!
