Top 5 Blogs in Canberra

By Samara Gentle - 17 September 2014 8

Blogging has become one of those things that everyone does. Like photography where if someone owns a camera they’re a ‘photographer’ the same can be said of blogs.

The truth is that blogging is not as easy as starting a blog and writing a handful of posts. Successful blogs take time, dedication and persistence. They build up communities of readers that love their content so much they keep coming back before.

Canberra itself is home to hundreds of blog (bet you didn’t know that!), yet only a handful have become successful, gaining loyal readership, creating interesting content weekly and always pushing their creative side.

The Merrymaker Sisters

The Merrymaker Sisters is as you guessed it, a dynamic duo sisterly blogging team started by Emma and Carla Papas. They started out writing about the paleo lifestyle and sharing recipes allowing their readers to cook yummy paleo meals.

Since starting out they’ve expanded into selling their own range of cookbooks and paleo health coaching sessions. These women keep going from strength to strength with their blog and I’m really looking forward to seeing where it takes them.

Closet Voyage

Canberra isn’t the first city in Australia that comes to mind when you think of fashion, however Closet Voyage is changing this one outfit at a time.

Closet Voyage is the style diary of Jiawa Liu who is inspired by all things fashionably beautiful. Her flare for fashion and street style photos grab you straight away. She not only invests in luxe items but regulary thrifts pieces and shows you great ways to wear them.

Design is Yay

Design is Yay is the creative space of graphic designer and illustrator Wita Puspita. Not only is Wita a wonderfully talented designer she also takes really beautiful photos of places she’s visited and things she’s created.

She offers tonnes of free printables and reviews some beautifully designed products that you won’t help but want to buy afterwards.

Style Curator

Style Curator is fairly new to the scene (started in June this year) but is already making leaps and bounds in the blogging world. Started by Gina Ciancio she brings you some beautiful home interiors, DIY ideas, personal project updates and more.

She features interviews with architects, artists, designers and lots of other talented individuals. One series which will be really interesting to follow is the demolition and building of her new house!

In The Taratory

In The Taratory first started out as a blog written by two Taras, T1 and T2 and in 2012 become solely written by Tara 1.

In The Taratory has become a household name in Canberra and I often here people reference, ‘In The Taratory didn’t rate it very well so I won’t be trying there’. Tara focuses on showcasing all the good things about Canberra from food, walking trails, events and anything else she thinks might suit.

Definitely worth a read: http://inthetaratory.wordpress.com

So does a “Canberra blog” have to be about Canberra or simply published by a resident of Canberra?

If the latter… http://www.ausmotive.com

Try, A Reexamined Life. http://www.areexaminedlife.wordpress.com

From the blog:
a Canberra based girl who is not an expert in anything.
What I lack for in expertise, however, I make up for in enthusiasm, and I am really passionate about trying to live a more natural and sustainable lifestyle.
Unfortunately for me (and the earth!), this whole “living naturally and sustainably” thing doesn’t come all that naturally to me (how is that for irony). For me, it’s not instinctive. Particularly when it comes to anything DIY. It is never a good idea for me to take on anything complicated or time consuming.
Despite my lack of natural skill in this area, I am determined to make changes and have been spending stacks time trawling the internet and looking through library books, looking to find the most simple, practical, and Stephanie-(that’s me)-proof things.

What I have found is that there are plenty of simple, genius ideas and solutions for natural and sustainable living that anyone can do regardless of how un-naturally natural they may be. This blog is to share what I am learning and implementing into my life in the hope that it might provide some inpsiration for others to do the same 🙂

Genius blog – wonderful satire, from the “kale brownies” (!!!) to the seething “chats” with a 15-year-old son who won’t maintain your compost. And trying cornflour-crust deodorant on your stinky friends’ armpits – I am reading on and on! Favourited forthwith!

Margarine is like oil and oil makes plastic and plastic is bad. Eat butter.

It’s all a bit too hippie dippie for me.

yebbut, eat butter – it’s much better!
