I started blogging in 2007 and I have been hooked ever since. I always love discovering new blogs in the most random niches. This is one of the greatest advantages of blogging — there’s a blog for everyone, no matter how specific your interests are. But blogs are more than just a source of useful information, they are are personal — each blogger puts a unique spin and perspective on the information they conveys to their readers. Blogging is also about connecting with other people. The comments in a blog can often serve as a great way to not only interact with the author of a blog, but also other people who are interested in the same niche as you are. A good blog often becomes a solid anchor or foundation in a niche.
Blogging can also be a way to make a living. I know of many bloggers who make a very good full-time income writing about things that they are extremely passionate about on their blogs. There is virtually a limitless number of ways you can make money from the hard work that you put into your blog. This blog looks into ways that you can improve and monetize your own blog by looking and great example blogs from all over the blogosphere.
Onblogging.com.au seeks to discover the best of the blogosphere — from travel, science, tech, business, and lifestyle blogs and more. From these great blogs, I seek to deconstruct what makes a great blog so that you can also learn and apply it to your own blogs.
You may be thinking “A blog about blogs? That sounds kinda meta”. And you’d be right. But I think we need meta-blogs because there’s just such a huge wealth of information out there. It can sometimes be difficult to find the best information out there. So that’s where I come in — I comment and review the best of the web. So it is meta — but it’s something we need in our cluttered lives. Now, if someone decides to write a blog about blogs about blogs (meta-meta-blog) then maybe I think we might be going a little too far.
Anyway, I hope that you enjoy what I have to offer on this site. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to drop me a line. I would love to hear from you.
