The fog this morning made golf pretty eerie. Lots of fun avoiding other players!

This is why I love South Australia. With a 5 minute drive and a 20 minute walk I can be at a place like this. It's 20 minutes from the city and 40 from the best beaches in the world. Very grateful.

5 Realistic Benchmarks for Your First Year of Blogging?

I often get emails from new bloggers who are thinking about giving up after a few months because they just aren't achieving the results they thought they would.

So what should you be able to realistically achieve? Here are 5 things I think all bloggers should look out for in their first year:

How did you go in your first year? There's some really inspiring/interesting discussions happening in the comments.

This website sold for $15,000... would you buy it?

Sometimes I go over to Flippa and have a look at what is selling and how much people are willing to pay for certain blogs and websites.

Recently a website called EcocentricMom sold for $15,000 despite making a net loss in February of this year.

When you sell a website you have to post a pretty complete and honest listing of all the financials, traffic details and the story of the website. As such it's a good way to learn about what people are doing and what makes a website valuable.

Head over and have a look at the listing using the link below and then leave a comment letting me know whether you'd buy it (if you had money to spend on buying websites).

Really curious to know what your process is.

Single Blog Topic VS Multiple Blog Topics
Every day I get dozens of emails from bloggers who have questions about some confusing aspect of the craft.

A lot of these problems are the same so I've decided to start answering them publicly so that everyone can benefit.

This first post is about whether you should have a multi-topic blog or just focus on one single issue. I get this question every single week.

What are your thoughts?

Great post mate. Personally I prefer smaller more focussed sites but that's more the SEO in me taking over

"A male rabbit is called a buck, and a female is called a doe. A baby rabbit is called a kit, which is short for kitten. Rabbits have a gestation period of around 31 days. The female can have up to 12-13 kits, very rarely litters as big as 18 and as small as one." Wikipedia
very cute anyway :)

I get a lot of questions from bloggers who want to start a blog on a self hosting setup but are a bit nervous about one or two aspects. Here are the top 15 most FAQs and some simple solutions. 
I always recommend starting a blog on a self-hosted setup. The reason is pretty simple – if you want to build a blog that is taken seriously by search engines and readers alike you'll want to avoid free hosts. They just aren't robust enough once you get beyond a certain point.

Introduction
When I was in college I sold a blog for 5-figures. That was when I first realized how powerful a medium blogging could be.

I now work full-time from home using blogging and internet marketing and share my strategies and experiments on BlogTyrant.com.

Blog Tyrant has a wonderful community (known as the Tyrant Troops) which are a huge source of information and advice - often better than the articles themselves! Hope to see you there.

I first met Mark (the owner) when he was working as a travel agent at a different company. But when he left to start his own agency with his wife I, and a lot of his other customers, followed him over without hesitation. It's been awesome to watch RoundAbout Travel flourish over the years (10 staff as of 2014!) and they've never forgotten what made them so good in the first place: incredible knowledge and customer service. Mark and his team have booked me and my family tickets to India, China, Borneo and around Europe. They always fight to get you the best route and, most importantly, are ultra-responsive if you ever run into problems overseas. Can't recommend them enough.

One of my favourite new places to come and sit with the laptop for hours. Big warehouse space, not too busy, and the perfect creamy coffee you only get from the best coffee makers.

I recently saw Triton from Active Bodies Physiotherapy to get help with a persistent forearm injury, possibly caused by my life as a professional laptop athlete. Small disclaimer: I've been friends with Triton for a few years but he was highly recommended by my housemate and fiancee who have both seen him as well. Given that we had a prior friendship I sort of assumed the appointment would be fairly casual and low key. In reality I received the most professional and competent physiotherapy appointment I've ever had (and I've had a LOT) - the initial assessment, treatment and education blew me away. He also sends an exercise program to your iPhone afterwards using his own MyPhysio App. The best thing is that Triton is an athlete as well and understands the issues you get with training and the fact that you don't want to wait around for months to get back into it. Highly recommend.

I've known the owner for a long time and his passion for coffee is bordering on a bit insane (sorry Ian). That said, he knows it better than anyone around and as a result the coffee and imported tea selection at Bar 9 is beyond comparison. If you go here for breakfast you'll find it very difficult to enjoy breakfast anywhere else ever again. Sure, they do eggs on toast but never how you know it. Adelaide loves its big breakfasts and Bar 9 is the best I've had by a long way. The only downside is that it's massively popular so you can wait for a seat on weekend. Better to go there around 11:30am when there seems to be a bit of a gap. Don't worry, they bring coffees out to the waiting seats!

I first used James Field on recommendation from a family friend. Since then he has been my go-to photographer for around a dozen commercial projects over the past five years - both photos and videos. Each time James has been professional, funny and extremely attentive to whatever situation we have been in (some more corporate than others). The end result is always stunning photography or video delivered ahead of schedule. I have and will continue to recommend James to anyone looking for a wedding or commercial photographer around Australia.

Stopped in here by chance looking for a place to work and have a good coffee. Incredible sandwiches and (surprise) panini-thingys filled with expensive looking ingredients. All tasted good, all friendly staff.

When you work from home it's good to take the laptop out and get a caffeine recharge every now and then. The crew at A Mothers Milk are always friendly and never mind me blogging away in the corner for hours on end after only buying one iced coffee. Coffee, great. Smashed avocado on toast, amazing. The Swiss mushroom thing, even better! Always busy but never feels packed or uncomfortable. Check it out.
