The blogosphere is always changing, and with the increased competition for views and readers, we all need to be on our A-game. As you may have noticed, it’s getting harder to compete in this space as more bloggers are coming up each day.
Blogs provide tutorials on everything from knitting patterns, food recipes, or how to build your own computer desk. Google is no longer just about finding information, it’s also useful at telling us what people have been thinking through these blogs.
Bloggers come from all over the world and are a diverse bunch. Coming from all walks of life and having different backgrounds, cultures, interests, or skills.
However, there are some Australian bloggers that have managed to keep their spot at the top of the list year after year (who are in no particular order might I add) by giving their followers what they want, which is quality content.
This post will provide you with a list of the top 50 Australian bloggers that are worth following!
Top Bloggers of Australia
1. Darren Rowse
Darren, in my opinion, would have to be the ‘father’ of blogging in Australia. He has been making a living since 2004 from his blogs and continues to provide valuable information to his audience. He is the owner of two very successful blogs, Problogger and Digital Photography School.
ProBlogger is a blog that aims to nurture and empower bloggers so they can make their blogs better, which will ultimately increase the potential earnings.
While Digital Photography School, as the name suggests, is a blog about bringing like-minded photographers looking to increase the quality of photos that they take and can then share those with the rest of the community.
2. Yaro Starak
A blogging millionaire by the age of 30, Yaro grew up in Brisbane, Australia, and knew that he didn’t want to get a ‘normal’ job if he could help it. He now has his own blog at Yaro.blog where you can find all kinds of information about building a laptop lifestyle business.
Yaro is still committed to teaching and helping the next generation of online entrepreneurs succeed through his flagship course, Blog Mastermind 2.0, and members-only community, The Laptop Lifestyle Academy.
3. Tim Denning
Tim describes himself as an unconventional blogger on the platforms LinkedIn and Medium where you can find most of his work. But it hasn’t been all smiles and roses for him. Tim has pushed through failures to become one of the best writers in the space.
His mantra is “to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development”. You can find him at timdenning.com.
4. Jeff Bullas
One of my favourite bloggers in the space, Jeff has been featured across major brands and blogs including Forbes, Inc., The New York Times, and The Huffington Post.
