Conversation practice

As some of you might recall I finished my tree a few weeks ago and since then have been aiming to keep it gold as well as watching Swedish television and doing some basic assessment tasks. However I haven't had a single conversation in Swedish yet. I knew this could happen given it's not a common language to learn, as well as the high proficiency of the Swedes to speak English. I was hoping to get some practice in at the Scandinavian Club at my university but I found out it doesn't have regularly-attending Swedish speakers. How could I go about getting some conversation practice in? As a student I'm rather poor so I was hoping not to spend too much (if anything) to get some practice in. I was thinking I could start a personal language blog where I write about myself and my life and (hopefully) readers can correct my writing and I can start to engage in some conversation that way. Is this a good idea? What else could I do? I live in Melbourne, Australia.

meetup is a good place to search. Your profile says you are based in Melbourne, so a quick search showed these:

Tack! Would you (or anyone) know of any good language conversation websites or apps that I could use? There are a lot but I'm not sure which ones are good. I'm basically trying to compile as many resources as possible.
