For flights, I used to exclusively use Kayak, however i’ve found that recently Skyscanner has been finding better deals. Hipmunk is also good.
For hostels, Hostelworld is my go-to website, however sometimes if a hostel is booked out on there i’ll use Hostelbookers instead, and it’s always worthwhile seeing if the hostel themselves have there own website.
For hotels, I generally use Expedia
I always check with Ozbargain, Flyertalk, and internationally, with Slickdeals ( although the layout can get a bit of getting used to )
For writing, I follow literary Agent Kristen Nelson’s blog as well as Navigating the Slush Pile. I find critiquecircle useful, as well as the Australian Writers Centre- and writersmarket.com
