Blogging is really big these days. There are hundreds of people launching new blogging websites every day. Of course, they all have slightly different reasons. Some just want to write personal entries as a journal, or share thoughts and stories from their lives with friends and family. Some, on the other hand, want to create full-blown blogging businesses and aim at replacing their current jobs.
Anyway, I’m not here to tell you which path is the right one and which isn’t. I just want to give you some inspiration by pointing out blogs that made it by writing about … wait for it … blogging itself.
Now, you probably know of ProBlogger – the main blog in this niche. However, there’s also a number of other blogs that provide interesting articles on a regular basis. So here’s my set of 7 of those blogs:
The guy who called himself the Blog Tyrant was kind of a mystery just until recently. No one actually knew what his name was. Yet, he was able to provide great content on blogging and build a significant readership. In June 2012 he finally decided to introduce himself to the public and reveal his name… And he still provides great content. Check it out for yourself.
Bloggers Passion trails back to January 2010. This doesn’t make it the oldest blog online, but over 2 years of providing great blogging advice is still impressive. The blog was started by Anil Agarwal from India. Over the years he learnt how to turn his passion into business and make a full-time income from it.
Blogging Tips is a blogging project by Zac Johnson, one of the top affiliate marketers online. But this blog is actually a collaborative work of a number of writers, not just Zac. Because of this, you’ll find a nice package of diverse content and advice there. Surely worth checking out.
Aliventures is a blog by Ali Luke, a writer, blogger, and coach. Ali isn’t only into blogging, but also fiction writing and publishing her work in the traditional media. On this blog, she provides advice on writing, blogging, freelancing, finding motivation, and other related topics.
Just like the name says, this blog provides blog tips to beginner bloggers and writers. The author of the blog, Ileane, also shares info on social media, and how to use it to help you with your blogging. You can find a new post on Basic Blog Tips around every other day.
The site was created in 2010. It provides advice for online businesses and entrepreneurs on how they can use blogging to help their efforts. Blogcast FM also features a number of guest posts from other bloggers, authors, or entrepreneurs. On top of that, there’s the Blogcast FM podcast, averaging more than 70,000 downloads each month.
BloggingPro is a lot more than just a blog about blogging. For instance, there’s a job board, reviews of WordPress themes, and some blogging books you can buy through Amazon. On top of that, BloggingPro also provides various advice for blog owners (everything from writing, to blog management, to security and other related topics).
This concludes my list, but feel free to share if you know of any other blogs that would look good here.
