1) For those of you who are thinking of or an in the process of immigrating:

I have a number of resources for you:

First of all, listen to people give their opinions on Melbourne, if you are thinking about coming down to Melbourne, Australia. The name of the article series is:

What is the Best City to Immigrate to? and of course we are talking about where I live,Melbourne

I also have articles on:

Secondly, check out the 10,000+ word series on all the little bits and pieces you need to organize and think about should you chose to visit Australia. The ten part article series is called:

How to Immigrate to Australia Within a Week. Some of the articles you’ll find in the series include:

Accommodation, Purpose and Awareness


Paperwork and Credit Cards Before You Fly Out

Public and Private Transport, Skype

Thirdly, I compiled an article that puts together all of my best articles that have to do with the immigration experience in general. That article is called:

What Everybody Ought to Know About Immigration and Njeri’s Guest Post (and Njeri of intricately me spoke about some of the things she’s learned as an immigrant in this series)

Fourth, I had one week where my readers, all of them immigrants, did all the writing (thanks guys) and shared their insights for all of you to learn from. The series was known as:

Guest Posts. Check out articles like:
