Welcome Livewire Readers

LivwireWelcome to readers of The Age (and Sydney Morning Herald aparently) who may have found themselves here after today’s LiveWire interview (no online version this time – but I’ve taken a photo of it to the left, click to enlarge and read if you’re interested). update: there is an online version now. You can read it here.

If this is your first time to then let me give you a quick tour of my online home. Grab a coffee and make yourself comfortable while I show you around.

Firstly, is a blog that is devoted to helping bloggers improve their blogging and explore ways to earn an income at the same time by writing about topics that they love – here’s a couple of links to give you a little information about me and about this blog.

If you’re new to blogging you might find this ‘what is a blog?‘ article and my recent series on Blogging for Beginners helpful.

If you’re interested in blogging for money here’s one on how bloggers are making money from blogging.

If you like what you read here you can follow my future entries (I write several times per day most days) in two ways – firstly I send a free email newsletter every week which you can subscribe to and secondly if you read RSS feeds you can subscribe to mine here.

The article also mentions my Digital Camera Blog and (a blog network that I co-own).

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you enjoy your stay at ProBlogger and b5media.

PS: The photo is one that they shot for another interview (last year sometime) – I’m not sure why they used it as the gadgets in the photo don’t connect with what I talk about in the article and they did send another photographer out for this article – odd).

    Yes – I forgot to mention above – this one’s a real article. Hopefully the ‘boy who cried wolf’ factor doesn’t come into play here :-)

    Read your interview in the Age. Well done!

    Picked up your comment on the importance of writing from the heart.

    I’ve just read: “If you want to write” by Brenda Ueland along the same theme. Excellent book.

    I’ll keep my eye out for that book – sounds like a good one!
