Living The Blogging Dream

New Zealand’s biggest
newspaper, The New Zealand Herald, has run an article about me in Monday morning’s paper.
It’s on the back page of the Business section and is entitled
Kiwi blogger logs on to make a living
. This is the first time I’ve had any mainstream
media coverage, so I admit it is quite a thrill. The article notes that Read/WriteWeb is
currently ranked the 51st biggest blog in the world, according to Technorati, and that around half our
readers are from the US (less than 1% are from my home country). There’s also some advice
from me about how to earn a living from blogging. Nothing too profound: find a niche
topic that you’re passionate about, then work hard and be very patient.

Thanks Simon Hendry and Alan Perrott from the Herald for the great story, and
photographer Mark Mitchell (who took the above photo for the Herald). And regular readers
may be wondering… I actually use a Windows machine for work, the beautiful Apple PC
shown there is my wife’s!
