For many, blogging can be a lonely exercise … at least at first. It takes time to learn the ropes — figuring out which blogging system to use, how to promote your blog and how to grow an audience or community around your site. When I first started I can remember being excited the day that I received 10+ visitors — reaching double digits took weeks, maybe even months.

And I remember reading that one of the important things about starting a blog is reading OTHER blogs. So off I went into the blogosphere, searching for other blogs to read … and I was disappointed to find hardly any Australian blogs. Well there was Darren Rowse’s ProBlogger, but that was a whole different kettle of fish … really I was looking for beginners like myself, or someone who could help out, answer questions and so on.

You know what? I never found it. But things have changed!

Over the past couple of weeks, a small group of dedicated Australian bloggers have taken on the challenge to setup a forum whose aims include โ€œempowering, encouraging, supporting and promoting Aussie Bloggers and the Australian blogosphere in generalโ€.

The founders, Snoskred, Andrew Boyd and Meg Tsiamis have been busily setting up and sorting out Aussie Bloggers. They are supported by a group of moderators who also come with years of practical blogging and online experience. The "establishment team" are:

  • Snoskred from Life in the Country
  • Meg from Dipping into the Blogpond
  • Andrew from On Blogging Australia
  • Christine from Semfire Search Engine Marketing
  • Karen from Miscellaneous Adventures of an Aussie Mum
  • Gavin from Servant of Chaos
  • Lani from Blogging Personal (launching in January 2008)
  • Jen from Semantically Driven
  • Lightening from Lightening Online
  • Sue from Blogging Sueblimely
  • Squadron from SEO Blog
  • Kelley from Magneto Bold Too
  • John from Disassociated
  • Cellobella from SultanaBlog
  • Martin from Small Office Australia
  • Steve from AcidLabs
  • Stephen from More Than Scratch the Surface
  • Colin from Adelaide Green Porridge Cafe
  • I am proud to be part of this group and look forward to watching this forum and community grow. So make sure you visit the blog … and REGISTER for the forum. There is a wealth of great material already available. If only it was around a few years ago!
