Many people enjoy the soft and warm feeling of having carpet cover their floors. Unfortunately, the drawback that comes with carpet has always been how difficult it can be to keep clean. People used to only have brooms to keep their carpets clean, but as you can imagine, this was not very effective. Even after the vacuum cleaner was invented, people still wanted a better way to keep their carpets squeaky clean. That was when commercial carpet cleaners started to appear on the market. This invention gave businesses and homeowners the carpeting cleaning they so desired.

What is an Australian Blog?
A blog (a truncation of "weblog") is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic. In the 2010s, "multi-author blogs" (MABs) emerged, featuring the writing of multiple authors and sometimes professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups, and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users who did not have much experience with HTML or computer programming. Previously, a knowledge of such technologies as HTML and File Transfer Protocol had been required to publish content on the Web, and early Web users therefore tended to be hackers and computer enthusiasts. In the 2010s, the majority are interactive Web 2.0 websites, allowing visitors to leave online comments, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service. Indeed, bloggers not only produce content to post on their blogs but also often build social relations with their readers and other bloggers. However, there are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments.
Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from philosophy, religion, and arts to science, politics, and sports. Others function as more personal online diaries or online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, digital images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave publicly viewable comments, and interact with other commenters, is an important contribution to the popularity of many blogs. However, blog owners or authors often moderate and filter online comments to remove hate speech or other offensive content. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blogs), photographs (photoblogs), videos (video blogs or "vlogs"), music (MP3 blogs), and audio (podcasts). In education, blogs can be used as instructional resources; these are referred to as edublogs. Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.
'Blog' and 'blogging' are now loosely used for content creation and sharing on social media, especially when the content is long-form and one creates and shares content on regular basis. So, one could be maintaining a blog on Facebook or blogging on Instagram.
On February 16, 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence. On February 20, 2014, there were around 172 million Tumblr and 75.8 million WordPress blogs in existence worldwide. According to critics and other bloggers, Blogger is the most popular blogging service used today. However, Blogger does not offer public statistics. Technorati lists 1.3 million blogs as of February 22, 2014.

TRACING THE HISTORY OF FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
Our good friends at Fresh Flowers, the online flower delivery Melbourne residents love, gave the Sydonia team these facts on the history of flower use for our readers.
The arrangement of flowers and foliage in baskets, vases, garlands, and other centrepieces using meticulously organized designs and matching colours is known as the art of flower arrangements. Floral arrangements should be a part of daily life and not reserved for special occasions as flowers can bring colour, beauty, fragrance as well as decoration to any formal or casual occasion.
The beauty of flower arrangement is as important as its history and a summary of the history of flower arrangement of various civilisations can be traced as follows:
Flower arranging is an art traceable from its roots back in Egypt. As early as 2800 BCE, Egyptians have been involved in floristry not just as a business but also as parts of their religious ceremonies.
Ancient Egyptians were traders who produced floral goods like wreaths, garlands, bowls, and other centrepieces. Florists were ordered by Egyptian royals to design these goods and organise burial processions and other ceremonies where flowers like roses, poppies, violets, jasmine were used. However, among all the flowers, the lotus blossom also known as water lily was given the highest regard. Lotus was often compared to the Sun god and used in tributes for the dead and as part of garlands for rituals and ceremonies.
The flower arrangement was a luxury only the Royals could afford, and they used flowers extensively for styling baskets and even vases. A systematic pattern can be observed in the flower arrangement design of the Egyptians. The flowers used within vases and garlands had a consistent design which was orderly, and the use of a supporting stick is followed till today.
At present, use of floral designs can be found extensively in Egyptian history through their culture, paintings, crockery, and architecture like walls of tombs dating back to the fifth century to Cleopatra’s time.
The Greeks and Romans
The Greeks and Romans used flowers more lavishly as compared to Egyptians. A higher significance was given to fragrance over the shape and colour of the flower. Flowers were part of not only religious rites and ceremonies but also a major part of the attire of the Greeks and Romans. Plants like olive branches, laurel, ivy, roses, etc. were part of royal processions, military victory, wedding proceedings, and every festival.
Olive crowns and laurel wreaths were a symbol of royalty and power as they were awarded to leaders, soldiers of high ranks, poets etc. Roses were given high regard due to their overwhelmingly strong fragrance, hence they were used extensively at meals, banquets. Furthermore, the women used flowers lavishly in their hair, for perfumed wreaths, and every citizen wore flowers on ceremonial occasions.
Flowers have been used for preparing medicines in China and as part of their religious teaching culture, since 207 BCE. In China, being a florist meant the position of profound respect and honour. Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism practitioners placed flowers on religious altars and even embodied flowers into their paintings, embroidered clothes, crockery as well as their scrolls and religious texts.
Since Buddhism forbids taking the life of a living creature, flowers were used sparingly for making baskets and other floral arrangements. The bamboo, pear, and peach trees along with tiger lilies, orchid, tulips and gerberas were held in high regards and considered symbols of fortune, wealth, and status.
Ikebana, which is one of the most popular Japanese flower arrangements, has been practised since the 7th century. The main principle of ikebana is minimalism or using the least number of flowers and not wasting even the stalks and leaves. The word “Ikebana” comes from the words “ikeru” meaning arrangement, and “HanaI” meaning flower.
There is a profound philosophy behind Ikebana arrangement of flowers, and the said arrangement has been divided into different schools over the centuries. When done with decorative purposes in mind, ikebana can be divided into Moribana, which is the decoration of flowers in a shallow dish, and Nageire that is decoration using a tall vase. There are several other arrangements, which vary depending upon the ceremony or the occasion.
The Medieval Period
In the medieval period, floristry was limited to the churches and monasteries. The shreds of evidence suggest that during middle age the arrangements of flowers included vases and garland and was normally preferred to freshen up the atmosphere. The middle age or dark age did not allow the art of floristry to extinct but of course, did not promote it as a culture. However, coming down to the modern period, it is evident that the culture of floristry has come out of the hibernation and has been a part of every glorious and extravagant celebration.

WHAT SIZE REMOVAL TRUCK DO I NEED FOR MY MOVE?
The Blog Chicks team came across this article written by 2 East Removals, a removalists Perth based business that home owners trust and they have agreed that we can publish it for our readers to learn from. We appreciate them allowing us to do this.Moving is undoubtedly stressful. There are dozens of tasks to complete, and all usually within a narrow timeframe. One important aspect this is frequently overlooked by people moving is making sure you book a removalist with the correct sized vehicle. The last thing you want on moving day is three or four trips back and forth in a truck that is far too small for your move. The question is, how do you select the right type of vehicle for your move? Read on for a decent guide based on your house size.Before I start, I will explain what a CBM is.CBMCBM stands for cubic metre. One cubic metre is one metre wide by one metre high by one metre long.
To make this easier to envision for your move, I will list some furniture and their general cubic metres. I’ve also attached a video to help picture this is a removal truck more easily.
- Book and Wine Carton: 0.1 cbm
- Tea Chest Carton: 0.15 cbm
- Double Bed and Mattress: 1.2 cbm
- Queen Bed and Mattress: 1.8 cbm
- Washing Machine: 0.6 cbm
- Fridge: 1–1.5cbm
- Three-Seater Couch: 1.5 cbm
- BBQ: 0.75 cbm
- Bookcase: 0.6 cbm
- Piano: 2 cbm
A three-tonne truck has a capacity of anywhere between 17 cbm and 25 cbm.
Can’t picture a three-tonne truck? Picture the small rental trucks companies such as Hertz and Thrifty hire out for people doing a DIY move. These trucks are common in removals because they don’t generally require a truck licence.
These trucks are great for poor-access areas, such as narrow driveways. They are also suitable for inner city moves to places like apartments because Perth City Council is very strict on parking larger trucks.
This size truck will generally fit belongings for a one- or two-bedroom property and small 3×1 Properties, such as a townhouse or duplex.
A five-tonne truck is a good sized truck for most moves. Ranging from 30 cbm to 40 cbm, they can generally work in properties with poor access and are a lot more versatile than an eight- or ten-tonne trucks while still holding a good amount of furniture.
Suitable houses would be most 3×2 properties, such as townhouses, villas, and detached houses.
Now we are getting into the larger sized trucks. Most suitable for houses with good access, such as a driveway or good street parking, eight-tonne trucks fit between 40 cbm and 50 cbm. Most come with a ramp or a large hydraulic lift. Make sure you go with a company that has one or the other.
These trucks are suitable for over 70% of four-bedroom family houses.
Ten- and Twelve-Tonne Truck
The largest available Pantech (closed roof) trucks you’ll see for house moves in Perth are ten- and twelve-tone trucks. They can range anywhere from 50 cbm to 65 cbm. Very few properties will need two trips with these trucks, and if you do, you either have to much stuff or a huge house!
These trucks are suitable for four- to six-bedroom houses with four to six occupants.
Thanks for reading and hope this information can help you select the right truck for your move.
