Lastminute with Fuelmyblog

Over at Fuelmyblog we have launched a new blogging competition with Lastminute to reward the best writing by a blogger about travel (disclosure: I have an interest in FMB).
We've teamed up with our mates at Lastminute and Austrian Airlines to offer one lucky winner two business class flights and a fabulous hotel stay in Vienna - city of romance, history and medieval charm.
So how do you enter? Just make a blog entry of up to 300 words on your best ever weekend or holiday, and send us the URL. Register with to make sure everyone knows about it and hey presto, you could be winging your way to Vienna and writing for Lastminute’s brand-new travel newsletter, Triptease.
Good luck everyone.

This competition is a match made in heaven.

Good luck with the re-launch of FMB!

Best wishes



Did you ever come across Johnny Mercer while you were at the Liverpool Post? He mainly wrote for the Birkenhead Beagle, but I think he strung a few pieces for the Echo in his time. ;-)

Hi Bill,

Johnny was a great songwriter. I loved Lazy Bones which he co-wrote with Hoagy Carmichael and the fantastic I'm an Old Cowhand from the Rio Grande.
Alas, I never met him although I was a great fan of the cutting-edge journalism at the Birkenhead Biter (as we called it on the other side of the River).
I will always remember their scoop of the Port Sunlight Soap Murders but that's another story.
