On top of administering this blog and my websites, I frequently visit a number of other web development / business related blogs and thought I would share a couple of them with you here.
Recommended blog # 1 – TylerCruz.com
I found this blog many months ago and enjoyed reading Tyler’s posts on how his life has changed as a result of making money online. Tyler is a 23 year old from Canada who describes himself as a ‘web publisher and entrepreneur’. Tyler makes most of his money from his poker website but is looking to diversify into other niches such as advice forums and advertising company reviews for web publishers.
At one stage Tyler seemed to lose motivation to update his blog, which was a shame. Now however, he is back and is posting at least one new article per day. I particularly enjoy reading posts about his new projects, as well as his more personal posts which have recently included the purchase of his first home thanks to his online earnings.
Unfortunately Tyler seems to have a few people that dislike him, although I am not sure why. I think they seem to take his laid-back attitude as arrogance, but to assume this would be wrong in my opinion. Tyler seems to admit to his mistakes and failings, which is an admirable quality.
Tyler has recently decided to increase productivity by enforcing upon himself a 40 hour working week – best of luck, Tyler!
Recommended blog # 2 – JohnChow.com
John Chow is another Canadian blogger. His blog is dedicated to sharing knowledge with his readers about how to make money online.
John declares himself as the root of all evil, but this is obviously just a marketing gimmick. Granted, he may slay the odd panda from time to time, and devour the odd live lobster, but you can hardly call someone evil when they disclose so much knowledge on how to build traffic and make money online, and donate so often to charity.
John posts around three to four new articles on his website each day which encourages repeat visitors (including myself). The quality of John’s blog is what inspired me to jump on the blogging bandwagon. If it wasn’t for John Chow dot Com, this blog would not have been born.
John does need to be careful about the lengths he goes to to monetise his blog. His site is littered with affiliate links and the number of paid reviews he posted last month was a little too much. Another bonus for John Chow readers -if you review his blog, he will link back to you – not a bad deal when you consider the popularity of his site.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these mini-reviews of two blogs I have ‘Live Bookmarked’ – I will mention other blogs I visit from time to time in a future post, but in the meantime I think I have given you all a couple of good resources to go out and devour!
